SiLight: Turn On The Flashlight With Siri

July 21, 2012 — by Adeel Qayum3

We know that Siri, Apple’s very own virtual assistant can help users perform a lot of tasks when she receives simple verbal commands. Though the fruit company has given her an impressive a set of skills, her repertoire keeps improving through the numerous tweaks which we can easily find in the Cydia Store. Not only that, we all know that once the iOS 6, which we all are waiting for, is released, it will further improve her performance. Though she is able to perform tasks, which are related to software, she isn’t able to do a lot when it comes to the hardware side of the iDevice people use. A tweak by the name SiLight will no doubt change that.

Siri-Data-Consumption-480x278.png

Last November, I wrote a post explaining how much data does Siri use on an iPhone 4S. While there’s no doubt that Siri is the standout feature of Apple’s iPhone 4S, a recent report from Arieso suggests that Apple’s virtual assistant Siri uses almost twice as much data as other Apple devices, such as the iPad. While it doesn’t matter to customers with unlimited data plans, it’s definitely a cause for concern for wireless carriers as it alleviates the fears of network congestion.
