On our iPhones (a lot of test devices) we switch often between a plain network connection and a connection with a proxy. The normal flow require

  1. Go to setting
  2. Select wifi preference
  3. enable proxy
  4. type the proxy address

Is there any way to "save" the proxy setting and enable/disable with a single button?


You should look into configuration profiles.

Their contents are described here:


You can build two profiles, one with and the other without proxy, and you would be able to create a link to each. Add those two links to a single webpage, and then add that page to Home Screen.

That's two taps rather than one, though.

Another option is two make two separate pages, each with a javascript redirect to download the profile. You could then save each of the pages to the home screen.
