Countless jailbreak tweaks can help make your iOS 10 device look and feel more like it’s running iOS 11, and now you can add a new free release called NotificationXI by iOS developer Squ1dd13 to that list.

From the screenshot examples above, you can discern how NotificationXI does away with the two-tone look of iOS 10’s incoming notification banners. Instead, it carries over the headerless single-tone style you would expect to see in iOS 11.

The tweak also works with the notification banners that show up on the Lock screen and in Notification Center, as shown below:

Notification Center

Whether you like the look and feel of iOS 11 or not remains to be seen, but NotificationXI does a relatively good job of replicating the look and feel.

Furthermore, those who stayed on iOS 10 rather than installing iOS 11.1.2 when they had the chance might never get to use an iOS 11 jailbreak. That said, tweaking iOS 10’s appearance to look more like iOS 11 seems to be the next best thing.

Notably, NotificationXI doesn’t have any options to configure, so it’s a straightforward tweak. Its effects begin to permeate your notification banners from the moment you install the tweak on your device.

If you’d like to give NotificationXI a try, then you can download it for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. NotificationXI works on all jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

    Can’t really tell the difference

    • It isn’t major. But this tweak gives a more accurate representation of iOS 11.

        Incl. a bug, as part of the UX…

  • I didn’t realize the notifications on iOS 11 takes more space than notifications on iOS 10.

    • They don’t, this is a graphical bug that will be fixed in the next version. The initial release simply gives the background a monotonous look and feel.

    Sad, barely anyone is on iOS 10 jailbreak now.

    • igobythisname

      i think you are very much mistaken..

        Let me do some maths for you. Most of the people don’t even use jailbreak, given my market exposure I’d say around 85% of people stay on stock iOS (thid also include iOS 11 users).
        Given currently less than 20% devices are on iOS 10, assume 100 to be the population using iOS.
        20 people are on iOS 10, whom 15% are jailbroken, that’s 3 people out of 100 that can use this tweak.

        My friend you live in a fabricated world.
