One of the most common complaints with the iPhone or just modern smartphones in general is the reduced battery life. That is understandable, considering the massive list of features that smartphones have. There are numerous ways for one to improve the battery life of their iPhones, however, some of them involve disabling certain features which is kind of counter-intuitive. That is downright tedious for most people. Yet, today's featured Cydia tweak claims it will help you conserve battery life on iPhone.
Enabling Airplane mode is one of the most common ways to conserve your iPhone's battery life. However, if you start disabling features on your iPhone, then you are making your device less of a smartphone. So, there will be times you will have to disable Airplane, in order to make your iPhone a "smartphone." However, this can be rather tedious and can easily be forgotten, even with quick access toggles provided by tweaks like SBSettings. But what if you can actually make your iPhone enable/disable Airplane mode by itself, according to your preferred schedule in order to conserve battery life?
A new tweak called AirplaneScheduler has recently been made available in Cydia. With this tweak installed, you will be able to schedule the exact time when your iPhone goes in and out of Airplane mode, which can "significantly improve battery life."
A good scenario for when this tweak comes in handy is when you're at work and your iPhone is not being used. As office hours start, you can schedule your iPhone to go into Airplane mode and by lunch time, you can then schedule the deactivation of the said mode.
Another good instance when this comes in handy is at night, just before you go to sleep. Have your device go into Airplane mode during your sleeping hours and have it deactivated when you wake up.
Looking at the features of the app, this is definitely a good tweak which can help improve the battery life of your iOS device. However, you'll have to spend some money on it as Airplane Scheduler is not free, but it's definitely a good option if you can't be bothered with manually enabling/disabling Airplane mode on your iPhone. AirplaneScheduler costs $1.49 through the ModMyi repo and requires iOS 6.
Needless to say, you'll need to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPad touch before you can download and install AirplaneScheduler. In case you haven't jailbroken your iOS device yet, feel free to use this tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 6.1 untethered on your iOS device.
