How To Use Volume Buttons To Adjust Display Brightness On iOS 9.3.3 iPhone
By default, your volume buttons obviously change the volume of your iPhone, either up or down depending on the one you press. The only other thing they can be used for is a Camera shutter button.
VolBright jailbreak tweak allows you to use your volume up and volume down buttons as both a volume control and a screen brightness control. What is the big advantage you can quickly and easily switch between the two modes by simply flipping your ringer/silent switch.
VolBright tweak is available as a free download package from Cydia’s BigBoss repository and works great with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak from Pangu. So grab the tweak and install it on your jailbroken device.
When you change the screen brightness with VolBright, you’ll notice it even comes complete with an updated HUD that shows a brightness icon instead of a volume or ringer icon.
You get to control which mode is used for brightness controls: ringer on or ringer off. This option you can find in the Settings app’s new VolBright preferences pane that you’ll get after installing the tweak. Once done with the settings, just respring using the button to save your changes.
VolBright tweak is a convenient way to switch between the two modes because the ringer/silent switch is so easy to access, and it’s always right on the side of your device. And if you often watch many videos in YouTube or Facebook, a VolBright tweak will be useful for on-the-fly video configurations.
