For jailbreak users, there has always been one way to upload items to Safari: a tweak called Safari Upload Enabler. Safari Upload Enabler has been around for quite a while, but hadn’t been updated since before iOS 6. Today, just a few months before iOS 7 is released to the public, the tweak has finally been updated to include support for iOS 6.
This tweak is downloaded and installed directly into Safari and allows users to upload files from their iPhone, such as images, to sites using Safari. Stock iOS 6’s version of Safari allows uploading of images to the internet, but other files are not supported without the tweak. If you’re interested in checking out the tweak, it is available for download through the Cydia store for $2.99. Below, find the entire changelog:
- Support for iOS 6.x extending the iOS 6 upload capabilities
- New Dropbox API
- Photo picker: new option to show preview before selection
- Photo picker improvements/bug fixes
- New localizations: Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal & Brazil), Romanian, Slovak, and Swedish
Although I don’t jailbreak my devices, this would be a tweak that I would consider installing if I constantly used websites that required uploading for data. Do any of you have the need to upload files to your iPhone’s Safari browser?
