Control Center has a lot of useful toggles existing all along the top of it, allowing you do things like turn Airplane Mode, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Rotation Lock, or even Do Not Disturb mode on or off.
Of course, one jailbreak developer has found a way to make the toggles into shortcuts for the respective preferences panes in the Settings app, and he’s done so with a new free jailbreak tweak called CCTButtonActions. Read More

iOS 10 takes 3D Touch, a pressure sensing technology which debuted a year ago on the iPhone 6s, to plenty new places throughout the operating system. With 3D Touch, you can clear all notifications in one fell swoop, rename folders quickly, prioritize downloads, interact with notifications and more.
You also get useful 3D Touch shortcuts upon pressing app icons in Control Center (sadly, 3D-touching Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles does nothing).
Worse, Control Center continues to inexplicably lack a dedicated cellular data toggle. But worry not, as Apple has found a way to slip in that sought-after cellular data shortcut with a little help from 3D Touch. Read More

DayNightSwitch is a new free jailbreak tweak that adds a little bit of character to the toggle switches throughout iOS you use on a regular basis by theming their on and off positions to reflect day or night.
With the tweak installed, you’re going to notice switches that get toggled to the “on” position display a blue sky with a little Sun and cloud icon, and switches that get toggled to the “off” position display a black sky with a little Moon icon and stars in the background. Read More

The Apple TV features a hidden “Advanced Settings” menu, which contains some interesting Apple employee-centric features. Accessing the hidden settings menu is remarkably easy to do, all you need is a paired Siri remote to get going.
Inside the hidden Advanced Settings menu, you’ll find an AppleConnect login option, a menu pertaining to loading a VPN Profile, Sleep Delay settings, and more. It’s generally not something that most customers will even care about, and we can’t recommend dilly-dallying around and changing values, but it’s interesting to know it’s there. Read More

The Taptic Engine inside your iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has replaced tiny rotary vibrators found on prior iPhone models (iPod touches and iPads lack a vibrator motor of their own).
Its primary function, however, has remained unchanged: to provide optional vibratory alerts when a phone call or a notification comes in, depending on the state of Vibrate on Ring and Vibrate on Silent switches in Settings → Sounds.
Prior to iOS 9, you couldn’t turn off vibration completely for things like emergency alerts. In iOS 9, there’s a new master switch to turn off all vibration on your device.
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to disable all vibration on your iPhone, including those for various emergency alerts, with just a few quick taps. Read More
