Change Siri's voice on your HomePod

Siri's British accent is very, very robotic, and after a while it can also get very, very irritating. Much more natural are the American ones on offer – both male and female – and the Australian one definitely has the most personality. Head into your iPhone or iPad's Home app, long press or 3D Touch the HomePod's tile and you get the options to switch up some of Apple's personal assistant's settings – language, default voice and the like. You can also choose to mute the Apple digital assistant, if you want.
