Access your iPhone’s quick controls from the unlocking screen

This is one of the most controversial aspects of iOS. The number of limitations we encounter when managing our device at will. Unlike the competition, something as simple as accessing Bluetooth requires up to three steps. Thanks to the Jailbreak this is not necessary though and tweaks like LockscreenToggles are a good example of this.

One of the things I love about Android and miss about iOS is the customization. Being able to configure the terminal to our liking should not be such a closed aspect, under any circumstances . Opening your hand more in this respect should not mean a loss of fluidity and stability, but it seems that since Cupertino they don’t think the same and that’s how it goes. Fortunately, there’s the Jailbreak and thanks to it and to sections like this one that we’ve been developing for some time, it’s possible to give a different touch to each device. Welcome to Tuning iOS.

This time we’re going to discuss access to our phone’s features. In Android the so called power control comes by default in some terminals and in others it is easily configurable, but what if we want something similar in our iPhone or iPad?

To achieve this we have a tweak called LockscreenToggles , which allows to access our toggles directly from the lock screen of the iPhone or iPad. It costs 0.99 euros and is available in the BigBoss repository.

With LockscreenToggles we have at our disposal a fast and efficient access to the main functions of the phone, similar to the one allowed by SBSettings but with a more careful aesthetic.

Their installation is the common one we have explained so many times. Once downloaded and installed, there is a respring and then we have the tweak functional.

Its configuration is very simple and like its use is based on gestures on the screen . If we slide the screen from the top, a list appears with the different accesses to functions that we can order as we please, so that the first five will be the ones we have on screen when we access our “power control”. This is the list of toggles available:

  • Flash.
  • Do not disturb.
  • Wi-Fi.
  • Hotspot.
  • Respring.
  • Bluetooth.
  • Location services.
  • Orientation of the blockage.
  • Airplane mode.
  • Reboot.

The design is extremely elegant , as is the use to which it can be put tweak . Perhaps you can blame the lack of a menu in the settings section for a greater degree of customization, but the way it works is clearly not necessary. Did you like LockscreenToggles better or are you still loyal to SBSettings ?
