10 Apple Music Jailbreak Tweaks

Apple Music is here, and I think that we can all agree that it’s a fairly big deal in tech. Now that iOS 8.4 is officially jailbroken, it’s time to look at some of the tweaks available for Apple Music. In the following post, I outline 10 jailbreak tweaks that you may want to try on Apple’s revamped Music app.

Note: Keep in mind that  since we just got the iOS 8.4 jailbreak, there may be conflicts when mixing together multiple tweaks. In this walkthrough, I installed only one tweak at a time to limit any potential conflict or issues.

Also, some of these tweaks still haven’t been officially updated for iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.4, yet they still work very well. Other tweaks may have a bug or two, but are otherwise usable. As the jailbreak matures and more developers update their tweaks, you’ll see increased compatibility across the spectrum. Okay, on to the tweaks!

MusicRotate

This is a new Cydia tweak especially designed for the revamped Apple Music app. It allows users to enable landscape orientation on the iPhone. – Free on Cydia

Fuse

Displays both the Lock screen clock and music controls at the same time. – Free on Cydia | Fuse walkthrough

MiniPlayer

Adds an iTunes-inspired mini player to the Lock screen. – $1.99 on Cydia | MiniPlayer walkthrough

EqualizerEverywhere

Looking to tailor the sound of a specific type or genre of music? Want more fine-grained control over the music listening experience? EqualizerEverywhere provides you with equalizer presets and lets you adjust various bands to create your own sound. – $3.00 on Cydia | EqualizerEverywhere walkthrough

Muswitch

Add music controls above the iOS App Switcher. – Free on Cydia | Muswitch walkthrough

Spectral

Lends more character to the Lock screen by adding blurred album art as a wallpaper. – Free on Cydia | Spectral walkthrough

Aspectus

Adds music controls to the Reachability view. – $0.99 on Cydia | Aspectus walkthrough

Helius 2

Revamped stylized Lock screen media controls. – $0.99 on Cydia | Helius 2 walkthrough

ColorFlow

Changes the color of the Lock screen and its assets based on the now playing song’s album artwork. Really great when playing a playlist containing various album covers. – $1.99 on Cydia | ColorFlow walkthrough

Flex 2

It’s only been a couple of days, and there are already two dedicated Apple Music Flex patches available. Flex lets you quickly and easily patch different aspects of iOS. Users can create their own patches from scratch, or as the majority enjoy doing, download patches from others. The two Flex patches I used allowed you to hide the recently played section and to hide the dismiss button for the now playing interface. – $3.99 on Cydia | Flex 2 walkthrough

Of course, this is only the very beginning of what’s possible with the right jailbreak tweak. Apple Music, and its feature-set will no doubt open up the doors to more innovation in the coming weeks and months.

What’s your favorite jailbreak tweak for the Apple Music app thus far?

  • Jordan Stevens

    If there is a tweak that shows the album track list when you double tap the album art in “Now Playing” I’ll downgrade to 8.4 and jailbreak my phone TONIGHT.

      • Jordan Stevens

        Youre so brave to come out to all of us on here.

  • Jon

    I wouldn’t even bother. iOS 8.4 was such a battery killer on my 6+ with Apple Music. Even though the app looks great, its still tends to be wonky.
    I downgraded back to 8.3 and couldn’t be happier.

    • Mike Colacone Saal

      I don’t notice because my battery was TERRIBLE with the jailbreak. I mean like 6 hours completely dead. 8.4 I go all day with ease lol

      • Jon

        Everyone is going to have a different story to tell. With iOS 8.4 and Taig i noticed my phone was worse off and the new music app didnt help. I only used it a few times (in vehicle) and it was demanding over 23% of the battery.

        Also the first night with 8.4, my phone went from 71% to 32% with just me texting and music playing in the background in about an hour.

        Thats when i decided to go back to 8.3 (before it was too late) considering it was more stable for me and continues to be more stable.

    • Loke1988

      I just plug it in more and reap the benefits.

  • Shingo

    are those listed tweaks support 8.4 yet?

  • Christopher Rigby

    MusicRotate kept sending my iPhone 6 plus into safe mode

  • M2

    Is ther any tweak that will allow music app to work without subscription. Don’t want to pay 9.99 a month. I do like beats 1 but don’t want to pay for it.

    • rosssimpson

      If you *don’t want* to pay 9.99 a month then you shouldn’t be able to access the music, simple.

      • M2

        That you for explaining how the monetary system works. I was already able to find something. iTunes unlimited and iTunes Radio scrub. Both tweaks. Everyone, please install.

    • Loke1988

      Support the artists or there be no artists.

  • Poporopo00

    The stock feature “up next” on 8.4 doesn’t work for me if i stream my music bluetooth devices. I just listen through the headphones or speaker and it works. Is just me or somebody else is having this issue too.

    Iphone 6 here

  • Chris Gilmore

    ColorFlow is saying Not Compatible with my iPhone 6 on 8.4

  • Loke

    What about Spin? I like the look of it on the lock screen but had to delete LockGlyph as they don’t look good together. I wish there was a tweak to delete undeletable songs…

  • Loke1988

    I like Spin but doing see it mentioned here. Doesn’t play well with Lockglyph so that had to go. I wish there was a tweak to make everything available offline with one touch as well as a way to delete these 1 or 2 songs that appeared in my music and I can’t get rid of. The later is driving me crazy since its Aerosmith which shows up first in alphabetical order. Sorry can’t stand that band.

  • zack

    is there a tweak that allows me to keep using apple music even though my trial ran out?

And thats IT 🙂 🙂 quite simpel and very Nice. Enjoy guys 😉
