New Natural Siri Voices for Japanese, Mandarin, and Australian and U.K. English

Siri on iPhone

The recently released iOS 7.1 beta 5 now includes “natural-sounding” updates to Siri’s voice for Australian English, U.K. English, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese, according Apple’s release notes. The iOS device initially uses a compact voice for Siri. After you have configured a Wi-Fi network and have the device connected to a power source, iOS will automatically download and install a higher quality version.

iOS 7.1 Beta 5 Release

Thought Apple’s Siri can apparently only handle simple and universal Japanese phrases in the past, now Siri performs flawlessly and better in this release. Even more better with Japanese, Mandarin, and Australian and U.K. English natural voices.

How-to Install Siri on iPhone 4/3GS/3G/2G iPod Touch, and iPad (non-iPhone 4S devices)

Siri iPhone 4 iPhone 3GS iPhone 3G iPhone 2G iPod Touch iPad

Since the first time Siri released, Apple only allows Siri to be exclusively accssible on the iPhone 4S. But as you may know, lots of iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, as well as iPad and iPod Touch users really wish to install siri on their own device , without having to have an iPhone 4S device. Of course, if Siri is the only reason to buy the iPhone 4S, that would really be an unwise decision.

Great news for those who had jailbreak their devices already, without having to have an iPhone 4S, you too can install and use the Siri on the iPhone 2G/3G/3GS/iPhone 4, iPod Touch 2G/3G/4G, and also iPad 1 & iPad 2.

Because of the jailbreak, you could have Siri application, or maybe the one similar to Siri it installed on your device. Some Cydia tweaks allow you to enjoy the features of the Siri assistant. Some of these apps only supports the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G, while others may support all versions of iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Listed below are some Cydia tweaks you should consider to be installed on iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad you if you wish to have Siri Assistant:

  1. Spire

    Spire is a simple installer for Siri on any iPhone or iPod on iOS 5.0. Spire downloads and installs a copy of the Siri frameworks and resources. On the iPhone 4S, it allows configuring a proxy easily. Spire developed by chpwn along with Ryan Petrich.
    Spire cydia tweak let you install Siri on iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS/iPhone 3G/iPhone 2G, iPod Touch 2G/iPod Touch 3G/iPod Touch 4G, but you will need a working Siri / Spire proxy to get it work. Without proxy, Siri will not work.

  2. SiriPort

    SiriPort works on works on iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS/iPod Touch/iPad. It’s a modified Spire version and you don’t need any Spire proxy / Siri proxy because SiriPort will handle that stuff. It’s best options to install and use siri on iPhone 4/iPhone 3GS/iPod Touch/iPad, but sometimes you will need to refresh the plist file when the certificate expired.

  3. Sara, the clone of Siri

    Sara, a clone of Siri with more advanced features.

    Sara is actually an open virtual assistant like Siri (Siri clone) and it was claimed for being the most effective and most innovative Siri clones currently. It’s not just accurate, but also offers more functions than Siri. It is simply open virtual assistant like Siri, with many advanced features Siri doesn’t have.

    The best alternative so far if you can’t get Siri working with any proxies.

  4. AssistantConnect

    A new jailbreak app called AssistantConnect promises to bring Siri to iPhone 4 without proxy in colaboration with Spire. Unlike previous ports, AssistantConnect allows you to email your Siri data between jailbroken iOS devices to enable Siri assistant. You will need to “Email Siri Data” button in iPhone 4S with AssistantConnect4S installed in order to let non-iPhone 4S device able to use Siri.

Will have more Siri for non-iPhone 4S listed here. Stay tuned for the updates!

Install Sara, a Siri clone that works on all iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad

We already have several Cydia apps and tweaks that will allow you to install Siri to iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch, also iPad, for example Spire, SiriPort, AssistantConnect, more to come. Spire is pretty good, but searching for working spire proxies is kinda wasting time and while the others are mainly based on Spire, you will definitely still need some good Siri proxies.
After the development of months and testing it is finally available in the Cydia for free of cost, now here it is Sara, yet another Siri alternative.

Sara Siri Clone app

Sara brings the Siri UI plus much more advanced features. You can install Sara from Cydia free of charge, and in addition it works on iPad without complicated settings.

So, what is Sara?

Sara is actually an open virtual assistant like Siri (Siri clone) and it was claimed for being the most effective and most innovative Siri clones currently. It’s not just accurate, but also offers more functions than Siri. It is simply open virtual assistant like Siri, with many advanced features Siri doesn’t have.

So, if you want to install Siri iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 2G, iPad 2, or iPad 1 that definitely would not be achieveable for time being, you should take a look at Sara virtual assistant.

Sara Pros:

  1. The main and most advantageous function of the Sara is that you simply don’t have to setup any kind of siri proxies to make it work.
  2. Sara lets you improve the location-based queries, and yes it does not restrict its services to the United States and Canada only (Sara is in fact beating Siri on the location-based services).
  3. Sara support multiple languages that Siri doesnt. Vietnamese, German, French, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and much more language will be supported.
  4. Sara will work on all older devices.
  5. Sara can work without Internet connection.
  6. Sara has “open” brain, this means, you can train and teach her new skills.
  7. Sara has built-in plugin system, therefore you can make your own plugin for Sara within 30 mins (for folks who don’t know about programming!)
  8. The graphic and user interface of Sara is almost the same as Siri.

Sara’s built-in features which siri doesn’t have:

  • Find local business & direction (everywhere, not only US and Canada)
  • Search Google, Wikipedia
  • Call, message
  • View the movie schedule from nearest cinema
  • Read newspaper (via RSS)
  • Check mail
  • Remote control PC

  • OCR feature (Image to text), you can use Sara instead of scanner
  • Social network support, share photos, comments on Facebook, twitter
  • Search product price, local business
  • Open apps
  • Weather
  • Even more…

Note: The SARA Cydia tweak does not natively integrated together with iOS system at the moment. It is an application with an icon on your homescreen and must be launched from your SpringBoard with a single tap.

Additionally, SARA Cydia tweak is based on Spire and uses a 3rd party server for some inquiries. Therefore, your personal information sent through Sara will be accessible on the server (even though the author notes no information will ever be logged). Use SARA at your own risk. Don’t bother to install Sara if you worried much about privacy of public siri servers.

Sara is available on this repo “”, you can simply download it on your device without any hustle. Simply add this repo in your Cydia sources and search for “Sara 0.2” on your Cydia Store.
