iOS 14.5 gets rid of Siri’s default voice Siri

When you think of Siri, there’s a good chance you think of a female voice. That’s the one featured in most adverts, and the one it defaults to, at least in many countries. Or it was anyway, but with iOS 14.5, Siri won’t default to any voice at all.

Instead, TechCrunch reports that users will be prompted to choose whether they want a male of female voice when they set up their device, with neither option pre-selected. It’s worth noting that some countries actually defaulted to a male voice, but they too won’t have a default anymore.
