iOS 7.1 brought many things for many people, but for us British folks Siri got a noticeable update. Until now, we’ve been given only one choice for how Siri sounds over here; the robotic sounding male. With iOS 7.1 a few regions, the UK included, got improvements to the quality of the voice feedback. Oh, and we also got a female voice for the first time ever!
It seems like a small thing, but the changes have made interacting with Siri should you be using UK English as your language more enjoyable. And I don’t know, but I’ve always thought of Siri as a more female entity anyway, so it’s good we get that choice now as well!
Agreed. I’ve always thought of Siri as a female entity ever since her introduction in the U.S. I will be testing Siri in the next couple of weeks to see if the service is more reliable now that there has been an update. Head over into Settings on your iPhone or iPad and try the new voice for Siri..
