A common thing that happens to jailbreakers, especially when they’re using iOS or iPadOS 13 or 14, is that they find themselves unable to add shortcuts that have been made in the Shortcuts app on an iOS or iPadOS 15 device.
In this brief, fun tutorial, we show you how you can create a beautiful flashlight shortcut on the Home Screen of your iPhone, iPad Pro, or iPad mini (6th generation). But first, let's talk about why you might want to do this.
We previously showed you the steps to automatically open your favorite websites without a single click when you turn on your Mac. In this brief tutorial, let us add some music to this.
Here's how to use the Shortcuts app to automatically play your desired playlist when you turn on your Mac.
Among several of my favorite things to do with a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, creating shortcuts to my most-used apps and features ranks high on my list.
Knowing when your iPhone or iPad has been fully charged can be helpful depending on the circumstances. Maybe you're waiting for your iPhone to reach 100% of battery before leaving your home. Or maybe you just don't like to keep your device plugged in once the battery has been fully charged. Whatever your reason may be, there is a way to be alerted the minute your iPhone or iPad has reached a full charge.
Using the Shortcuts app, we will create a personal automation that will run when battery level reaches 100%. At that time, we will have different options as to how we want to be alerted.
Have you ever accidentally dropped your iPhone in water and wondered how to get rid of the water from inside the speaker? As it turns out, there's a simple way to eject water from the iPhone speakers. You can either use a Siri Shortcut, or you can try out an app, or even a website. Even if your iPhone comes with an IP rating, it doesn't mean water can't get stuck in places.
Anyone who takes advantage of the Shortcuts app to perform automations would be familiar with the notification banner that manliest itself after the automation completes.
Apple intended for this notification to let the user know when the automation finishes running, but if you’re already familiar with what your automation is supposed to do, then sometimes it can come off as redundant information.
That was a quick turnaround. Which is a good thing, as Apple was able to fix an apparent issue causing problems with sharing older Shortcuts links.
Following recent news that older iCloud links used by iOS automation fans to share their Shortcuts workflows with others have stopped working, Apple has now promised a fix.
It appears that iCloud links meant to share Shortcuts have a limited amount of time before they become invalidated. At least, that's the latest discovery by folks trying to share some Shortcuts that are a week old or older.
When you’re writing something where you want to use the degree symbol°, do you just type the word “degrees” instead? Whether you’re talking about the temperature, an angle, the direction, or something similar, you don’t have to use the word.
Here, we’ll show you how to type the degree symbol on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac. And once you see how easy it is, you’ll wish you had found out sooner.
Aside from unlocking your iPhone with an Apple Watch, changing the default music player for Siri requests and other perks, iOS 14.5 adds several handy new actions to the Shortcuts app.
