Hi apple smarties,

I know that in ios 5.0 there used to be a shortcut that could be put on the homescreen for brightness adjustments, and it was taken away in 5.1 but has anyone found a workaround for later ios versions? I also tried asking siri to decrease the brightness but she said she couldn't do it!? I know there are apps out there, but I guess it would be just as fast for me to open up settings>brightness as it would for me to open up an app.  I wish that little double tap of the home button and slide to the left would be available on the iphone as it is on the ipad.  Am I missing something here? Does anyone know the right words to ask siri to do it?  I don't have a jailbroken phone.   Thanks! 

iPhone 5, iOS 6
