If you have jailbroken device you have a great ability to enable 3D Touch-based speed dial on iOS 9 iPhone with new Cydia release dubbed as QuickDial Pro. The idea behind this jailbreak tweak is to give you easier access to your top contacts. With it, you’ll simply launch the Phone app and use a gesture on one of your Phone app’s dialer keys, very similarly to the old-school cell phones that used quick dial back in the day.
How To Add 3D Touch-Based Speed Dial To iOS 9 iPhone
QuickDial Pro tweak utilizes 3D Touch, so you can activate the tweak by performing a 3D Touch gesture on one of the Phone app’s number pad keys. When you do, it will bring up a peek and pop menu that displays the contact’s photo, as well as buttons for:
- Calling the contact
- Messaging the contact
- FaceTiming the contact
Tapping on any of the buttons from this menu invokes their designated purpose. For example, tapping on the Call button will initiate a phone call with the person you’ve assigned to that specific number pad key, and so on.
How to install and configure QuickDial Pro tweak
To enable 3D Touch-based speed dial on iOS 9 iPhone first download QuickDial Pro on your jailbroken iOS 9 device from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for just $0.99. Once installed the tweak will add a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can configure your speed dial contacts.
You can add a maximum of ten contacts to your QuickDial Pro roster, so you might want to limit your choices to close family members and friends that you contact the most often, otherwise anyone with a bevy of contacts will run out of room pretty quickly.
Don't forget to add the area code along with the phone number of the person you’re adding. This helps prevent any unwanted misdials from occurring.
Once you’ve configured your contacts, you can start speed dialing them immediately. There’s no need to respring or reboot following your configurations, which means you can edit your speed dial contacts on the fly, a very convenient touch.
Those users who own iPhone without 3D touch feature can install free Cydia tweak called revealMenu will let you simulate this gesture on your Phone app’s number keys with a tap and hold. So you can still enjoy QuickDial Pro tweak on older devices.
