Use Siri to adjust your iOS device's brightness iOS devices
In iOS 7, Siri can toggle a lot of settings: Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, and more. And the virtual assistant also gives quick access to more granular settings.

Tell Siri something like, "Change the brightness," and the brightness slider will appear onscreen, ready for you to adjust. Of course, you could always simply drag up Control Center instead, but who doesn't like a virtual minion to do their brightness-adjusting bidding?

And if you try that on IOS6, Siri slyly tells you that it can do that - IF you update to the latest IOS...

If you're more specific, Siri will do all the work for you. Trying saying "adjust brightnes to 25 percent" or "set brightness to 50 percent" and instead of bringing up a slider for you to make the change, she'll do it all for you...

Tried this on a iPad 3 and iPhone 4S, but in both case no dice.

Maybe this only works on devices of later generations..?

You can also say things like "my screen is to bright" or "my screen is not bright enough".

Pretty cool!

This would be cool. Unfortunately mine says that it can't be done but "you can do that in settings". 5S iOS 7.0.1
