If that wasn’t enough for you, then you can take it a step further and create your own custom Siri audio introduction as well. Check inside for our full tutorial…
Step 1: Create a custom 1-2 second audio file and name it jbl_begin with a .caf extension. See our video for more details.
Step 2: SSH into your device, and venture to the System/Library/Audio/UISounds/ directory, and rename the jbl_begin.caf file to jbl_begin.caf.old to save it off.
Step 3: Copy your custom jbl_begin.caf file to the System/Library/Audio/UISounds/ directory, then invoke Siri to test out the change. You should hear your custom sound instead of the standard Siri beep.
Notes: In this tutorial I used QuickTime and iTunes to create my custom jbl_begin.caf file. There are other methods to doing so such as GarageBand, and I’m sure there are Windows methods as well. I only took this so far, but as you can probably tell, it’s up to you how far you want to take this.
There will undoubtedly be a jailbreak tweak in the future that will allow you to record and create your own custom Siri intro sounds right on the device, but for now, this is a fairly easy to follow workaround. What do you think?
