by Jawwad in iPad, iPhone, News | 8 comments

As we mentioned, in our detailed article about the new features and exciting features in iOS 5, one of the major new features is all new Notification Centre that houses all the messages/notifications such as calls, sms etc. that you can check at any later time. As many have already noticed, Notification Centre also shows all new widgets developed by Apple specifically for the iOS 5 namely weather and stock widgets. Soon after the release of the iOS 5 beta, we were expecting someone may be from jailbreak community will come forward and bring us the new customized 3rd party widgets. And you know JB community didn’t disappoint, as now there is indeed a new JB tweak available called UISettings that integrates some really useful buttons for commonly used actions right into the new Notification Centre of iOS 5! The actions integrated through the UISettings for now include the very common functions such as Airplane mode, Respring, Brightness control, Wi-Fi on/off etc.

You might notice that it has some similarity to the already available and well know SBSettings tweak that also allows to control all these functions, and provides much more customization. But the beauty of the UISettings is in the way it nicely integrates in the iOS 5 notification center. Please note that this tweak to work you must be first jailbroken on new iOS 5 beta. You can do so by following our guide: Jailbreak iOS 5 On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad & iPod Touch Using Redsn0w 0.9.8. After that just add the following repo to Cydia sources: http://qwertyoruiop.com/beta to download and install the UISettings.
