After Siri gets two new votes For US users with iOS 14.5Apple today offers another option for its personal assistant with iOS 15.4 beta 4. Although the company hasn’t explained why Siri will get this new voice or if Apple will add more in the future, it’s interesting to see how big the iOS 15.4 update is.
For a parallel run, iOS 14.5 and iOS 15.4 brought new iPhone unlock options, emojis, and now different US voices for Siri.

“We’re excited to introduce two new Siri voices for English speakers and an option for Siri users to choose the voice they want when setting up their device,” Apple said in a statement. “This is a continuation of Apple’s longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion, and products and services designed to better reflect the diversity of the world in which we live.”
