Is there any way with Automatic, perhaps with IFTTT, to change iPhone Settings when the ignition is turned on and off? For example, I'd like to adjust screen brightness among other things, such as autolock (since I plug it in) to keep the screen alive, toggle "Hey Siri" always on, etc.
I'm backing a Kickstarter project called AwareCar which supposedly will allow for a car context so that Settings can be modified, but that's not out until later this year, and frankly I'm not even convinced they can live up to that promise because as far as I know it might be a limitation of the API that apps can't modify phone settings.
However, if there's any way to do this with your product, I'd like to know, or please consider this a request for future enhancement.
It's bad enough Apple doesn't have built-in contexts for the iPhone settings -- there are clear use cases for having variable configurations for when the phone is plugged in, especially energy-related settings -- or when the phone has detected its location is at the office, we might want different volume and ring tone settings, just as one example -- so if there's any way a 3rd party app or gadget can solve this problem at least partially, I'm very interested to learn more.
