The feature was made available with the release of iOS 14.5, allowing users to choose between two Siri voices available in English. What this means is that you can now change the default Siri voice and accent to make it more natural for your needs. Apple says that the new voices add more diversity in speech and pattern. The overall purpose of the new addition is to make the entire virtual assistance process more natural. If you do not know, we will let you know how to change Siri's voice and accent on your iPhone and iPad.
If you are running iOS 14 or even iOS 15, you can easily change Siri's voice and accent through the Settings. If you are unfamiliar with the mechanics, simply follow the step-by-step instructions below.
1. The first thing that you have to do is launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Now, tap on Siri & Search.
3. Tap on Siri Voice.
4. Finally, you will be presented with a set of accents under Variety and a set of voices under Voice.
5. Simply choose one from each set of options according to your personal preferences and you are all set.
This is all that you have to do to change Siri's voice and accent on your iPhone and iPad. Choose the voice that best suits you and the accent that you can easily understand. Once you select the specific option, a checkmark will appear next to the option. When you change the voice and accent, your iPhone or iPad will first need to download them and then set them. So if you are seeing 'downloading' when you tap an option, it is completely normal.
Another thing that you should note is that the number of voice options available depends on your choice of accent. For instance, the American option offers four voices while the rest of the bunch only features two.
