The days of a mechanical Siri voice are gone. You now have a much more human-sounding digital assistant on your iPhone. Still, the default voice might not be for everyone. If you don’t like Siri’s voice, you can change it at any time. Apple allows you to switch Siri’s language, too, so you can customize the assistant to sound however you like.
How to change Siri’s voice on your iPhone
On your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Siri Voice. There are multiple options here. Under Variety, you can pick Siri’s accent. For some languages, such as English, you may see many options here, including American, Australian, British, Indian, Irish, and South African. When you select any of these, you will hear a preview of what the voice sounds like, with a cheery, “Hi! I’m Siri. Choose the voice you’d like me to use.” Once you choose the accent you like, you can scroll down to the Voice section and make a selection. Some varieties only have two voices to choose from, while others, like American (U.S), have upwards of five. Again, each one you tap offers the same cheery preview, and will take effect once iOS downloads the voice.
To change Siri’s language, go to Settings > Siri & Search > Language. Scroll up or down to find the Siri language you want and tap to select it. Your iPhone will download the required language, and you’ll be able to use it after that.
How to change Siri’s voice on your Mac
Siri is also available on your Mac, and it’s just as easy to change. Go to System Settings > Siri & Spotlight > Siri voice. You can select the voice variety in the left pane and the gender of the voice in the pane on the right. Once you’ve done this, click Done to confirm the changes. You can also change Siri’s language by going to the drop-down menu next to Language, which is located under Siri & Spotlight settings.
