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 http://brdrck.me/settings 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.
