Apple Disables Settings Shortcuts in iOS 5.1 Beta

Apple has reportedly disabled the ability to create an icon shortcut to specific setting menus in iOS 5.1 beta.

The shortcuts were revealed earlier this month and quickly became a popular feature with iOS device owners. Designer Jeff Broderick created some beautiful icons with pre-made shortcuts which could be installed by visiting on your device.

Now, iSpazio is reporting that the latest developer beta has disabled this functionality. It's unclear why Apple would remove a perfectly simple and harmless shortcut and instead force users to turn to popular SBSettings utility which requires jailbreak.

As far as I recall, things like this will "confuse the user", so yup miphones still for retards as I read it properly, fortunate for those with JB phones cause they do use the phone as a smartphone and have this for as long as I can remember (Thx Cydia!), nothing out of the hat for the brain dead 99% of users with non JB phones.

Apple just needs to realize that they could do something simple and elegant for these shortcuts, allow people to add them to the Notifications tab like SBSettings does!
