A Look at the History of Siri Voices
Before you start about the steps to switch to the new voice, here is a look at the ever-growing collection of voices by Siri.
Before last year, users were provided with two options to select for their Siri’s voice- a female voice and a male voice. By default, Apple assigned your digital assistance specifically with a female voice. But, in the case of iOS 14.5, users get two additional voices from Apple. The goal for Apple was to indicate the growing user base for its devices with the growing number of voice addition for Siri. And, then this goal is served right with the new iOS 15.4 version that is coupled with more inclusive Siri Voice choices, exciting and attracting the users. This new voice choice for Siri seems to be highly gender-neutral, keeping up with the change the society is currently focusing on.
Also, there is a notified change in the iOS 14.5 made by Apple- the digital assistant’s voice no longer comes with the female voice as default. That means you can select and set a voice for Siri all by yourself when setting up your new iPhone.
