Siri started as an app, but Apple recognized its potential. Soon it became a part of their products. This feature made its debut alongside iPhone 4S back in October 2011. Today, Siri offers numerous options to choose from, including changing both voice and language.
Users can fully customize Siri to fit their personal preferences. And the best part is that you can complete this process in just a couple of taps. But before we dive in, remember that you can use the same steps for changing Siri’s voice and language on both iPad and iPhone. Here is how:
Changing Siri’s voice on iPad and iPhone
If you want to change Siri’s voice on either iPad or iPhone, you should start by opening Settings. From there, scroll down a little bit and find Siri & Search. Then tap on Siri Voice.
Now you have two sections showing up on the screen – Variety and Voice. As you can see from the lists, Variety allows you to select an accent. On the other hand, Voice lets you choose between male and female voices.
Select the variety and voice you want and wait a bit because your phone needs to download the data. Make sure you connect to the internet first. Otherwise, downloading the new Siri accent or voice will be impossible. Once it’s complete, you will be all set!
Changing Siri’s language on iPad & iPhone
One of the most exciting Siri features is the option to use other languages. It can come in handy if you are not an English speaker. We’ll follow the same steps for this one – go to Settings and tap on Siri & Search. Select the Language option.
Then, you’ll see a list of available languages you can use. There are plenty of options such as Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Japanese, Korean, Russian, etc. Select the language you want to use and confirm.
We also have to mention that once you change Siri’s language, you won’t be able to use the famous ‘Hey Siri’. Instead, you have to set up your voice once again, with new commands.
And that’s it! You now know how to change Siri’s voice and language on both iPhone and iPad. Hopefully, you’ll continue using Siri in the language you want!
I love tech and all about it. I’m interested in finding ways how they can make my lives more productive and I share my knowledge with my blog readers. I’m an iPad Pro, iPhone, MacBook, Apple Watch user, so I know a thing or two about these devices.
