QuickPrefs

If you frequently find yourself configuring tweak settings or needing quick access to specific sections of the Settings app, QuickPrefs tweak can be an invaluable tool. It offers a convenient solution by enabling you to seamlessly add and access both tweak and stock preferences directly from the 3D Touch Menu within the Settings app.

Add QuickPrefs Repo to your package manager and install the tweak:

What is QuickPrefs?

QuickPrefs is a streamlined jailbreak tweak compatible with iOS 11 through iOS 16, designed to provide swift access to both tweak and stock preferences. By leveraging the 3D Touch Menu within the Settings app, this lightweight tweak offers a convenient solution for efficiently managing and adjusting various settings of your favorite tweaks quickly.

Upon installation, QuickPrefs tweak seamlessly integrates a dedicated preference pane into the Settings app, granting you the ability to effortlessly tailor its options to suit your preferences. Within this pane, you can conveniently configure and personalize up to 12 tweaks or settings pages, which will subsequently be added to the 3D Touch menu of Settings app.

In order to add a new item to the 3D Touch menu, it is essential to enter the exact name of the tweak or settings pane as it appears in your Settings app, paying careful attention to letter case. It's worth noting that applying changes does not necessitate a respring. However, if you encounter any difficulties in viewing the newly added items, a respring may resolve the issue.

QuickPrefs tweak offers additional flexibility by allowing you to display items above the stock ones, departing from the default below arrangement. Furthermore, it provides an option to remove stock items altogether and even reverse the order of the displayed items.

With QuickPrefs, you have the convenience of directly opening a tweak's preferences pane by simply typing its name. Additionally, the tweak supports custom paths, enabling you to access a wide range of Settings.app preferences panes. By using item names as paths, you can delve into subcategories within Settings.app categories, further expanding your ability to navigate and customize your Settings app 3D Touch menu to your liking.

When it comes to stock Settings panes, determining the appropriate values for the path can be a bit complex. To simplify this process, QuickPrefs offers the “Path Finder” option. By enabling this feature, you can easily discover the desired path by performing a long press on the rows you are interested in. This action will unveil the identifier of the row and provide you with the option to conveniently copy it to the clipboard and saves you time and effort.

This level of customization empowers you to curate the appearance and functionality of the 3D Touch menu according to your specific preferences. The most recent release of QuickPrefs tweak was updated to support iOS 15 rootless jailbreaks such as Dopamine and Palera1n.
