Apple is currently pushing for more insluvity and has stated that the new voice was recorded by someone who is a part of the LGBTQ+ community.


“We’re excited to introduce a new Siri voice for English speakers, giving users more options to choose a voice that speaks to them. Millions of people around the world rely on Siri every day to help get things done, so we work to make the experience feel as personalized as possible," Apple said.


"The new Siri voice leverages Neural Text to Speech technology for an incredibly natural sound."
