1. You can use Siri to manage your Control Center & Settings. Although it’s much quicker to reach important settings in iOS 7, Siri has been upgraded with the ability to manage these settings, too. For example, if you ask Siri to turn Bluetooth off, you’ll see the following interface.



2. You can use Siri to open up your favorite apps, either stock or download. But it doesn’t work on lock screen.

3. You can teach Siri to pronounce names correctly. If you have people in your contact list and have hard-to-say names, you can tell Siri “That’s not how you pronounce (name)”, and then you can say it correctly to her. Siri will then give you three options to choose from. But the function doesn’t work on lock screen.

4. In addition, you can use Siri to search the web faster, to answer random questions, to find out what people are tweeting about, to play your favorite tunes or radio stations and to check your calls, emails & voicemails, etc. Besides, you can change Siri’s voice from female to male by going to Settings=>General=>Siri=>Voice Gender to select the voice you like.
