With all of the latest updates soon to come with iOS 15, it’s easy to overlook that Apple brought some compelling new features into its iOS 14.5 update back in April. While Apple is known to usually shy away from bringing recognizable new features this late in the year, the company in the past few years has mixed up its release strategy after being much criticized concerning incredibly buggy iOS releases. In the article you will learn how to enable new Siri voices after the latest update.
So while Apple has traditionally rolled out as many new features as it could into a brand new iOS release, the tech giant now takes a more measured approach. The overarching goal in this respect is to ensure that new features are well polished and ready to go when released. And sometimes it happens that some of the features won’t debut until a few months after a major iOS release.
The April launch of iOS 14.5 perfectly illustrates this strategy in action. Regardless of some updates to the company’s Maps app and bundles of new emojis, iOS 14.5 also offered new voice options for Siri. You must learn how to enable new Siri voices. Moreover, the default Siri voice is the no longer female version when setting up your device for the first time.
Here, try listening to what some of Siri’s new voices sound like.
If you desire to enable or play around with Siri’s new voices, it’s easy. Simply, open up the Settings app and reach the Siri & Search section and select it. Now tap Siri Voice and you’ll be able to pick between four different voices. It is more likely that tapping each voice will provide you a preview of what that voice sounds like.
Soon in near future, an iOS 14.7 update is likely to come, but obviously, the more exciting update is slated to happen in September once Apple released iOS 15. Though iOS 15 may lack a singular “killer feature,” the update is stacked with various latest and alluring features that should improve the overall user experience.
Here are given three iOS 15 features you might be excited about:
- Better text selection – You can again see the magnification loupe for text selection on iOS.
- Find lost devices even when turned off – With the ‘Find My network’, it will soon be possible to track and locate a missing iOS device even if it is turned off.
- Portrait mode for FaceTime calls – Cool one and hopefully the impending iPhone 13 release will have Portrait mode support for video across the board.
