While Apple doesn’t look like they will be implementing Siri voice themes any time soon, actually changing the voice of Siri is possible by switching some language settings. Now here is the Non-Jailbreak and Jailbreak ways to change the voice of Siri on your iPhone 4S or other iOS device with the Spire Cydia tweak installed.
Change Voice Of Siri (Non-Jailbreak)
If you do not have a Jailbroken iOS device or do not like the idea of installing Cydia tweaks that effect your battery life, then you will be glad to know that you can still actually change the voice of Siri very easily.
Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is launch the Settings.app.
Step 2) – Now go into the General Tab, followed by the Siri tab and finally the Language tab.
Step 3) – From here you should see three English options:
English (United Kingdom)
English (United States)
If you would like to change Siri from a female voice to a male voice then you will want to select the English (United Kingdom) option. For those that would prefer Siri with a little bit of an Australian accent you will want to choose the English (Australia) option.
Note: English (United States) is the default voice of Siri that most people are used to.
