Latest iOS 15.4 Beta Adds Fifth Siri Voice for U.S. Users

In iOS 15.4, Apple has introduced a fifth "American" Siri voice, which can be selected from the Settings app by going to ‌Siri‌ & Search and then selecting ‌Siri‌ Voice. The new voice is the fifth option, which joins the original four American ‌Siri‌ voices.

The "American" voice is the only new voice that was added today for users in the United States, and there appear to have been no other updates to ‌Siri‌'s voice options.

Those running the latest iOS 15.4 developer beta can listen to the new voice, which is distinct from prior voice selections.


Today's beta update also introduces the AirTags anti-stalking changes that Apple announced earlier this month.

I've listened through the various options but still go back to voice 4 each time. "Original Siri" just sounds right.

For example, while my birthday is in April and I am still 27 years old for a few more months, Siri tells me that I am already 28 when asked.
