Many iPhone users like to switch Airplane Mode on either for peace and quiet or to reduce exposure to radio signals at night. Bringing your iOS device on an airplane will require that the radios be switched off during takeoff and landing. Thanks to the simple, free jailbreak tweak LockScreenAirPlaneMode this process is easy and quick.
If you use Airplane Mode often, you already know that switching it ON or OFF means unlocking your device and navigating to Settings. WIth LockScreenAirplaneMode installed from Cydia, the process is easy as long pressing an airplane icon directly on the lock screen.
Other tweaks have introduced ways to better control Airplane Mode, such as AirplaneScheduler and iSleepWell which automate the process of switching off the iPhone radios. With a simple toggle always available directly from the lock screen, enabling Airplane Mode manually is now a one-step, convenient process anytime.
LockScreenAirplaneMode is available on Cydia from the BigBoss repository for free. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 6.x with evasi0n. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
