It looks like Apple is finally acknowledging that Siri’s default female voice isn’t a good look.
According to TechCrunch, the latest public betas for iOS and iPadOS require users to select their preferred voice for Siri.
The update is currently rolling out as part of beta 6, which is the newest version of iOS and iPadOS 14.5. After downloading and installing it, users will be be instructed to choose Siri’s voice. Apple also added two new voices, but they’re not exactly gender neutral — one sounds feminine and the other is more masculine.
