Ok, so it isn’t the NCSettings or SBSettings-like feature we were hoping for. But Apple did make the Bluetooth toggle more accessible in iOS 6.

As you can see in the screenshot above, the Bluetooth option has been relocated in the Settings app. Now it takes a few less taps to access…

Most of you will recall that in iOS 5, users had to launch the Settings app, tap General, and then scroll down to find the Bluetooth toggle. But in iOS 6, it’s been moved to right underneath the Wi-Fi tab.

Not a major change by any means. But we’ll take it.

  • I found this a nice enhancement. To bad they haven’t added bluetooth file transfer.

      Actually if I am not mistaken, Apple did add Bluetooth file transfer but it can only be done with Bluetooth 4.0 devices like the iPhone 4s, so get ready to bye a new iPhone lol. It sucks that they can only transfer data with only those Bluetooth 4.0. Apple should have added the coding for it to allow the transfer, as it is backwards compatible with other versions.

      • You can transfer music, pictures, videos, ringtones and documents via bluetooth on an iPhone 4s?

        I can do that with my jailbroken 4 but apples should include it standard on all iPhones

      • javierE186

        Yeah I think it can, again only with devices that are Bluetooth 4.0, like the Droid Razr and the Mac Pro, and I totally agree, I can do it in my jailbroken iPhone 4 but sure wish it was just a normal feature on the iPhone.

    I love seeing all this new stuff, but what about the NDA?

    Always been crap, will still be crap up until the moment they add NCsettings-like features. Something Android has been having for ages, wake the hell up Apple!

  • It doesn’t matter where the Bluetooth Toggle located, it does matter when the world best smartphone can’t transfer files or photos to others non-IOS device. What a shame!!! My 40 bulk Sony-Ericsson handphones could transfer any file or photo to any brands of phone and OS.

      AirBlue Sharing

      • I love AirBlue Sharing but bluetooth file transfer should come standard, along with many other things.

  • That screenshot looks to be themed differently than ios5. The status bar looks blue instead of black. The bar at the top that says settings is smoother looking. and the pinstripe background now has opposite colors, the smaller stripes are darker, whereas in ios5 they were lighter.

  • Well its an improvement in one sense.
