One of the great things about Control Center is how it offers access to Music controls anywhere you might need them. Part of the music control interface shows an album artwork illustration for whatever media is playing. Of course, some jailbreak developers would argue that it needs improvement.
A new free jailbreak tweak called BiggieSmallcc by candoizo aims to make the album artwork more proportionately appropriate by enlarging it to better fit the size of the interface, especially on larger-screened devices. Read More

While some people don’t mind them, there are a number of people that hate seeing dots across their operating system, and a new free jailbreak tweak called NoDots10 by harrywantstodev lets you erase the various dots from all over iOS. Read More

Music lovers can make great use of Acapella III, the third iteration of the popular jailbreak tweak series by Pat Sluth that gives power users a way to do more from the Now Playing interfaces in iOS by way of gestures.
You can use these gestures throughout iOS, whether you’re in Control Center, on the Lock screen, or viewing the Now Playing interface or the mini player in the Music app, and as a result of the new gesture-driven music controls, most of the button-based controls are removed from the iOS interfaces.

Control Center made iOS devices more usable after debuting post-iOS 7, as it allows you tinker with settings and shortcuts without ever having to open an app to do so. On the other hand, Apple still doesn’t give the user even the most basic of customization options, which leaves a lot to be desired. Fortunately, the jailbreak community picks up the slack in this department.
With a new free jailbreak tweak called CCPlus by iOS developer Skitty, you can configure the look and feel of Control Center so it reflects what you want, rather than what Apple expects it to be. Read More

It seems like Apple is hiding some pretty useful functionality from us in the iOS 10 Control Center that might remain hidden until a future release of iOS, such as a toggle for recording your screen and a toggle for Low Power Mode, but from the looks of things, it doesn’t end there.
If you have an iPad, then you’re probably familiar with the Mute toggle that appears in Control Center, which it’s not present on other iOS devices despite still existing in the system. A new free jailbreak tweak called EnableCCMute by iKilledAppl3 enables this hidden toggle on all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Read More
