Use a Shortcut To Change iPhone Settings Just For One App

You can create a personal automation in the Shortcuts app to change your iPhone settings when you launch an app, and then change them back when you exit. For example, you can increase the font size, but only for that app or a set of apps.

    I have an app that I do not want to let it access WiFi. I made an automation to turn off WiFi when the app is clicked and turn WiFi back on when the app is closed. It works but opens the app before it turns off WiFi so the app accesses the WiFi. Is there any way to turn off WiFi before it turns the app on?

    Alfred: Why not create a Shortcut that turns off Wi-Fi, then waits for a few seconds, then launches the app.

    Is it possible to create an automated short cut to run for example every 22 of the month to reset data usage statistics?

    philippe: On the iPhone? No. Set a reminder or calendar event and then do it manually on that day.
