    Sorry if answered before.

    Siri's voice is currently male. How do I change it to female?

    Cannot see a setting for it.

    You can't change it.

    US and AU have Female voices. UK has Male.

    Don't think you can. Just got my 4s in the UK and it seems to only be the mans voice you can have. I am sure at a later date Apple will release new voices (probably for a price!)

    Women's rights groups will be suing Apple in the UK.

    So wait does it depend on the country you buy your iPhone or the language you choose?

    No reason. That's just the way it is for now.

    The Uk english language has only the male voice, the US appears to have the female voice. Fortunately the US version works better with my scottish accent!

    Not sure if anybody else has noticed but when I changed from UK to US it did have a harder time of recognising what I was saying.
