    I noticed something weird today, and I don’t see any other threads about this:

    After updating my iPhone 7 Plus and my 10.5” iPad Pro this afternoon, I noticed that the 7 Plus had the new natural sounding Siri voice, and the iPad had the old voice. I tried going into settings and toggling it back and forth to other voices and then coming back to my original one—the test sound in settings plays the new voice, but when I go to actually use Siri, it’s still the old voice.

    I tested this on my son’s iPad Air 2 after he updated his as well, and he’s also still getting the old Siri voice. Has anyone noticed this on their iPad and found a fix for it yet? It annoys me that I get the fancy new voice on my phone, but not my iPad.

    Yeah the same thing is happening to but it’s the iPad and not my phone. If you find a fix let me know.

    I know my 6 plus has the new Siri voice, my iPad Air sounded new too but I could be wrong.

    Just tested again, air sounds like old Siri

    I had this problem on my iPhone 7 Plus. I left it plugged in and eventually it got the new voice. It seems to need to download it.

    Plug your device in for a few minutes and the new voice will download and after that you’ll have the new voice.

    I updated a 10.5 iPP, 2017 iPad and iPhone 6S to iOS 11 yesterday. So far the only device to get the new Siri voice is the iPad Pro. There is a hiccup on the iPP though. When waking up Siri with, “Hey Siri”, Siri wakes up for a split second, then disappears before being able to give commands.

    Edit. Phone updated two days later.

    Not having that issue on mine--I've used Siri a few times today and it's worked with no problem.

    My iPad mini 2 has been updated to IOS11 for five days now and it still uses the old voice. I have restarted, switched Siri gender, switched Siri language, and still no luck. I have 8GB available storage on the iPad. Any suggestion?
