What’s new in iOS 14.5 beta 6?
As we get close and closer to the iOS 14.5 RC, Apple hasn’t stopped adding new and noteworthy features to what may be the final significant release in the iOS 14 lifecycle.
Two new Siri American accent voices
In iOS 14.5 beta 6, Siri receives a significant update — adding two brand new American Siri voices — one male and one female — to the mix. In previous versions of iOS, there were just two voices available for the American accent. These updated voices not only make their way to iPhones running the iOS 14.5 beta, but I’ve also been able to test the iPad, Apple Watch, and even the HomePod betas with the new voice additions.
