This must be looking a very useful topic to you since we all know how painful it is to get the access of WiFi settings in iPhone. You need to go through Settings > WiFi > On/Off. Not really impressive, is it? And many people have thought of getting a way to put a simple shortcut on the home screen of their iDevice to access WiFi settings.
If you remember then we covered an iPhone App called Bluetooth OnOff which as name indicates allows ease to put your Bluetooth On and Off and the best part is you do not need to jailbreak your device since the app is available in the App store and that too for free. The app brings you a toggle switch to turn Bluetooth on and off. You can find more information from the post here. After the release of Bluetooth OnOff users were hoping to get a similar one for WiFi, which means an app to make the task of switching WiFi on and off easy. But unfortunately it never came into picture.
Then How to get WiFi Settings shortcut on iPhone Home Screen
Well now we have a Cydia Tweak called WiFi shortcut which simply adds a shortcut to WiFi settings on the home screen of your iPhone. Tapping on which you get to see the settings pane of WiFi and select to put WiFi On and Off. The tweak does not do any more than this. It’s a pretty simple and useful tweak to get the WiFi shortcut on home screen. This would probably help you to save some battery consumed by WiFi. But since it is Cydia Tweak you need to have a Jailbroken device, either tethered or untethered.
The tweak is available for free in Cydia Store under the BigBoss repo and can be downloaded right away. If you do not have a jailbroken device and wish to have an app to do the same task for you then I recommend Icon Project (Home Screen Icon) app which is available in the App store but this will cost you $0.99 and in return the app provides not only shortcut to WiFi but to many settings option. So if you wish to simply add a shortcut to WiFi settings on iPhone Home Screen then go for WiFi shortcut Cydia Tweak and enjoy the ease of switching WiFi on and off.
