Want an Android-like advanced reboot menu on iOS Control Center? Here’s how you get it

Migrating from Android to iOS can be a humdrum practice for many. For at least the first few weeks, they find it impossible to cope up with the lack of customisation options they used to enjoy on the previous platform.

Jailbreaking is the last resort for every iDevice user out there, who wants to personalise the gadget according to their likings. By gaining advanced privileges over the filesystem through this process, modifying almost anything becomes possible.

Guess what! In order to get complete control over the platform, Android users perform rooting. Even without having their devices rooted, the raw OS has tons of features for customisation. Let’s take advanced reboot menu for example.

On OxyenOS (OnePlus’s custom overlay), you can activate it by turning a slider on (Before that, make sure you enabled developer options). In fact, a few simple steps fetches you the result. But on the other hand, there are no such menus available on iOS.

In case you happened to use the advanced power off menu quite often on your Android phone, chances are you miss it on iOS as well. Well, you don’t have to, anymore! Today, we stumbled on a jailbreak tweak to add the Android-like reboot menu inside the Control Center.
