Siri is no longer just a girls name thanks to iOS 7. Apple has now included the option to switch to a male voice, should users be so inclined. I personally think the male voice sounds a lot better than the robotic-sounding female voice. The manlier flavor of Siri comes off a lot more natural and, in my opinion, makes Siri seem smoother.
Now, aside from the new set of voices, there’s a lot to focus on behind the scenes. Siri in iOS 7 gained a lot of new tricks. A few of my favorites include the ability to read content from Twitter and being able to adjust settings like bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Siri’s new feature set fits right in with its existing capabilities, and I use them almost daily. Overall the digital assistant still holds a lot of potential and I believe it will develop to be a larger part of the iOS experience in the years to come, but for now I’m happy to enjoy some new features and a new voice in iOS 7.
