Siri Tip of the Day: Adjust Screen Brightness

Siri can adjust screen brightness! Easier than doing it by hand, and after adjusting the brightness, Siri leaves a slider for you to play with just in case.

Who knew? Siri can adjust your iPhone’s screen brightness. Just say “Make the screen brighter” or “Make the screen dimmer” and Siri takes care of it.

Siri, make the screen brighter. Or dimmer.

Notice the little slider, in case you want to do some fine-tuning.

Alternative: just say “Make it brighter” or “Make it dimmer” and Siri assumes that “it” refers to the iPhone’s screen.

Note: I just learned this one.
