  2.   Hey Siri Brighten screen and Siri will brighten it by 25 percent each time you give that command. But if you want it brightened by a different percentage like just 10 percent, then say Hey Siri brighten screen by 10 percent.
  3. Hey Siri darken screen and Siri will automatically decrease the brightness of the screen by 25 percent each time you give the command. But just like above, if you want the screen brightness decreased by only 10 percent, you would say Hey Siri decrease screen by 10 percent.
