Apple has been hard at work in the recent months, and one of the most significant efforts materialized in the form of the upcoming iOS 13. The next update for the beloved operating system will come with a plethora of new features; one of them will make many Apple fans happy.
iOS 13 to sport new shortcuts
Users with gain the ability to enable and disable Wi-Fi without the need to go to the Settings menu every time they wish to turn the function on or off. A small icon will be placed in the Control Center, allowing users to toggle the feature whenever they want. According to sources which explore the beta version this is the mechanic used by the shortcut:
- The user will open the Control Center
- A long-press on the Wi-Fi icon will show the connection toggles.
- Long-pressing, the icon for a second time, will bring a list of available Wi-Fi networks.
- Tap on the desired network to connect to it. In some cases, you will have to enter a password.
The feature is available right now for the beta version, but it is not advised to install the iOS 13 beta if you plan to use your device every day.
