If you have an iPhone, you probably know a lot of what Siri can do. But there are still a couple tricks Siri has up its sleeve that most iOS users may not know about. If you’ve got World Cup fever, Siri may be your best friend over the next few weeks. Siri is able to tap into all sorts of information about the World Cup. You can ask, “When is the United States playing Germany?” and Siri will answer. You can also quickly get scores of past games as well as the current standings. Siri also makes it easy to quickly change just about any setting on your phone. You can have Siri turn on your Wi-Fi, adjust screen brightness and more. If you’re going to the movies, you can ask a question like, “How good is 22 Jump Street?” and Siri will display the latest reviews from Rotten Tomatoes. And, if you want to catch some shuteye before you leave, you can even tell Siri to wake you up in half an hour.
