Your iOS device comes with display dimming settings out of the box, but they aren’t very robust. Those looking for additional flexibility in this department might take an interest in a new jailbreak tweak release called Dimid by iOS developer LonestarX.

With Dimid, you’re no longer limited to the chintzy display dimming options Apple provides in iOS. Instead, the tweak augments the experience with a slew of new customization options.

When you install Dimid, you’ll find a new preference pane in the Settings app:

Here, you can:

  • Toggle the tweak on or off on demand
  • Configure a custom display dimming delay
  • Tap the screen to wake it from dimmed state
  • Use motion to wake it from dimmed state
  • Use Touch ID to wake it from dimmed state
  • Use hardware buttons to wake it from dimmed state
  • Turn the screen off when dimmed
  • Configure a custom dim brightness
  • Configure a custom display brightness after exiting from dimmed state
  • Configure a custom motion sensitivity for waking via motion
  • And more…

Dimid’s extensive feature set promises a significantly better display dimming experience than what you’d come to expect on a stock device. Adding icing to the cake, the developer provides a handy dark mode-compatible Control Center toggle for turning the tweak on or off on demand:

If you’re fed up with the stock display dimming options in iOS, then Dimid might be worth trying. It’s available from Cydia’s HASHBANG repository for $1.49 and works with all jailbroken iOS 11 devices.
