    You can use Siri to access system preferences. All you need to do is create a contact and in the Web site field put the code for the system preference. for example.

    Contact name is Bluetooth and the Web address is prefs:root=General&path=Bluetooth

    Then activate Siri and say "Bluetooth" the contact card will open with a clickable link right to the Bluetooth settings.

    Here are a few other common settings

    Sounds: prefs:root=Sounds
    Brightness: prefs:root=Brightness
    Airplane Mode: prefs:root=Airplane_Mode
    Wallpapers: prefs:root=Wallpaper

    You can also create contacts to launch apps using the same procedure.

    for example:
    Create a contact called Youtube and put youtube:// for the URL

    Same deal Say Youtube and click the link and the app will open.



    EDIT: Added screen shots


    Here is the web site i found this info on with more commands IDevice Daily Link

    I was able to get to the settings this way, but not to the brightness option. This could be really cool,

    EDIT: Tried it with Wi-Fi, and my iphone did a respring...is this safe?

    Cool post, in my jailbroken 3GS i used to use SBSettings for changing the brightness at night but this helps until either apple allows an app like SBSettings or the 4S is jailbroken

    Mispelled words mess things up evidently.

    Just out of curiosity, could you write an address to actually implement a task? (e.g. having two contacts 'Wi-Fi on' and 'Wi-Fi off' that actually activated the option as opposed to bringing up a menu) That'd be ideal.

    I don't think you can since you are not sending a call to the app to do something. You are just creating a link to the app setting.

    I am sure with a Jailbroken device it is possible, but this works on pure iPhone4s'

    Doesn't quite work on my 4S, when I say 'bluetooth' or 'show me bluetooth' it shows me where the Bluetooth Sig is located in Seattle. I can however pull up the contact manually and tap the link, which works...

    Just change the name on the contact to something else. The name is not important. Call is ToothBlue and see if that works better for you.

    Mine did too but it worked fine when i put "Bluetooth" in the last name field instead of the first name field. ultimately I changed it to first name Bluetooth, last name Settings and it works well.

    Bam,
    What do I need to type in as a contact to get directly to the settings app, where location services are?
    When I add location services, it brings me to the usage screen. Any ideas?

    I put in the contact bluetooth and some times it comes up to the general settings with bluetooth on the page and half the time it goes to the general settings page. strange.


    prefs:root=general&path=bluetooth is what i used.

    Fantastic!!

    Is there a URL to get to the calculator? The obvious path did not work.

    Thanks in advance,

    I used the script bamf posted earlier for wi-fi but changed the name of the contact to "Wireless".
