If you've been poring through the iPhone's settings app looking for control of Siri's volume, only to discover it isn't there, don't worry. The answer isn't that you can't adjust Siri's volume, you can. You just can't make Siri louder or quieter through the settings app.

To change Siri's volume, simply do the following:

1) activate Siri (press and hold the home button)
2) use the volume control buttons on the side of your iPhone

Is Siri an iPhone 4S Security Threat?

Some of you may be wondering if Siri is too good to be true. After all, the technology offers to solve many of your problems via real-time speech interaction. Voice dictation of texts and search parameters is convenient, but at what price? Battery power is not the only thing sacrificed using Siri on the iPhone 4S, that is unless you check your security settings.

Turns out that Siri (much like Voice Control before its time) can access a whole range of functions without ever entering the passcode lock number that protects your iPhone. Reports have indicated that Siri is capable of changing calendar appointments, writing text messages and sending emails, all without ever entering the passcode that normally protects your iPhone 4S.

Video Shows Siri Working on iPhone 4

The mystery as to why Siri is exclusive to the iPhone 4S just got a little more interesting. 9to5Mac ported the voice command system from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 4. In the video below, developer Steven Troughton-Smith demonstrates how Siri looks on the device.

9to5 claims it can recognize spoken commands and speak back to the user. The only problem is Apple's servers are not authenticating commands from the iPhone 4 hardware. Apple fans have been debating whether other iOS devices like the iPad 2 can handle Siri's AI. 9to5's discovery proves there are no technical reasons for Siri being exclusive to the iPhone 4S.

Can I use the Siri assistant on the iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS?

Apple is launching Siri, a voice assistant integrated into iOS 5 they claim will change how people interact with smartphones forever. Those with an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 can update to iOS 5 however don't look for Siri on these devices.

Siri will be an exclusive feature only found on the iPhone 4S.

It is likely, however, that the iPhone jailbreak community will come up with a mod that will allow Siri to be used on the iPhone 4, and perhaps even on the iPhone 3GS.
