Those users with jailbroken devices have a great ability to keep Wifi and Bluetooth on when toggle Airplane Mode in iOS 9. With a new Cydia release debuted as Keep On Airplane Mode, you can now use the feature to toggle only your cellular radios off while keeping your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios active. Let's find out how this tweak in action.
How To Keep Wifi And Bluetooth On When Toggle Airplane Mode
With the Keep On Airplane Mode jailbreak tweak installed, anyone can actually go ahead and toggle Airplane Mode on or off freely without changing their Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth toggle settings. This effectively turns the Airplane Mode switch into no more than a cellular radio toggle switch.
So in order to keep Wifi and Bluetooth on when toggle Airplane Mode in iOS 9 head to Cydia and download Keep On Airplane Mode tweak. The tweak is totally free. Install it on your jailbroken device. In case you are not jailbroken use Pangu tool for iOS 9.2-9.3.3 to liberate your device.
There are only a couple of settings to configure after installing the Keep On Airplane Mode tweak. You can independently choose what gets left on when you turn Airplane Mode on, and you can even pick a custom Bluetooth delay for when it reconnects.
Actually this tweak renders the intended functionality of Airplane Mode (to disable all wireless transmission from your device) utterly useless. For folks who leaves their work devices at desk all day, that’s not a problem. But for travelers who want a fast way to disable all cellular radios while boarding airplanes this tweak is not recommended.
So if you want to keep Wifi and Bluetooth on when Airplane Mode enabled on your iOS 9.3.3 iPhone then you should definitely try this tweak. The tweak has only been tested on iOS 9.0 and later devices, so if you are using the earlier versions there could be compatibility issues.
