The control center on your iPhone is that semi-transparent shade that you can pull up from the bottom of your screen. Introduced in iOS 7, it’s a handy little thing if we’re honest. You can use it to control your current music player without having to open the actual app, use it to turn on the back light to find your keys, and use it to toggle on and off things like Wi-Fi, auto-rotate, do not disturb, and more.
But, let’s be real, there’s always room for improvement and thanks to a jailbreak tweak called CCSettings, that improvement comes in the form of adding a ton more toggles to the control center for easier access.
The jailbreak tweak is free even and is easy to install. Here’s how.
I. Jailbreak Your iPhone
1. Your iPhone must be jailbroken before you can install the tweak. Please head to our jailbreaking section to learn how you can jailbreak your iPhone and get Cydia running on it by selecting the version of iOS you are currently running and doing the specific tutorial for that version of iOS. When you’re done, come back here and continue.
II. Install CCSettings for iOS 8
1. Tap on Cydia and it’ll launch.
2. Tap on Search in the bottom-right of the screen.

The tweak was successfully installed on your iPhone, and here’s how you can configure and use it on your iPhone:
