Gradually, Apple is overcoming the limitations of its operating system, allowing users to have much more customization.
A clear example of this is how we can change Siri’s voice and customize many other functions, such as the write to Siri mode.
Most of these features can be found in the Siri section of the iOS 11 Settings application. iPhone and iPad users can choose from several different options. Today, we show you how to customize Siri on your device.
How to activate Oye Siri
