Sir's feminine voice can potentially be a thing of the past if you'd prefer a more masculine personal assistant with iOS 7.

As demoed by Apple back in June, iOS users are now able to change the new female Siri voice to a male voice.

Changing the gender of Siri's voice only takes a few seconds and is really easy to do.

  • Launch the Settings app and tap on General, followed by Siri.

  • Here you can disable Siri, change its default language, as well as point Siri to your personal info and change a couple more settings. The only new setting here is the Voice Gender option.
  • Selecting the Voice Gender option will only display two options to pick from -- male or female.

Should you have decided to change the gender, you can always change it back by visiting this same settings screen.
