iPhone 4S Siri hack lets you change settings with your voice

Another Siri hack for the laziest of gadgeteers…

The latest Siri hack to hit the interwebs lets jailbroken iPhone 4S owners control their iPhone 4S’s settings with nothing but their voices.

From having Siri tell you how much battery is left to toggling Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the new functionality offers an alternative to tedious menu-trawling.

The best part is that Hamza Sood – the code junkie in question – has managed to get the voice commands to work by bypassing Apple’s servers, a problem that has plagued other Siri tweaks in the past.

The only downside is that a public jailbreak for the iPhone 4S is still not available, so stick a pin in this story and remember to return when it does hit the interwebs.
