Onion is a new tweak that simplifies the Control Center interface

By , Feb 23, 2017

Minimalists who love using their jailbreaks to shed off unnecessary layers of their iPhone and/or iPad’s UI to leave a lighter footprint may find themselves liking a new free jailbreak tweak release called onion by candoizo.

This tweak is designed to give Control Center both a simpler and sleeker look by removing one of the background layers from the interface.

Shown above, you can see how the tweak removes the cloudier background and makes the glyphs appear to be “free-floating” in the Control Center interface. It rids the interface of the stark distinction between background and button, giving it a flatter look with an increased level of transparency.

For what it’s worth, onion even works nicely with the iOS 10 version of Noctis, so even if you’re rocking a dark mode for Control Center, you’ll see that onion still strips away that additional cloudy layer:

Whether or not the new styling appeals to you comes down to personal opinion. Some people prefer the stock look, while others are always exploring ways to make their devices look different from everyone else’s. Onion offers a way to do the latter without costing a single cent and without going over the top, as it changes the interface in a very minimal way.

If you’re interested in trying onion, it can be downloaded for free today from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.

Keep in mind also that Control Center was redesigned starting with iOS 10 and onion was designed to work with it, so onion only works on jailbroken iOS 10 devices. The tweak also doesn’t come with any options to configure, so after you install it, the effects immediate and remain until you remove the tweak from your device.
