Since you use it so much, why not empower yourself with the ability to customize it and make it look the way you want it to? You could always leave it stock, but when you have a jailbreak, you can stand out from the rest with a jailbreak tweak called 3DSwitcher 2. Read More

Picture in Picture mode is a type of multitasking that was introduced with iOS 9 so you could complete other tasks while simultaneously watching video. Unfortunately those with iPhones, iPod touches, and even some models of iPad can’t use it because it’s restricted to certain models of iPad only.
With all of the time-saving shortcuts available for Apple’s stock apps on the Touch Bar, you’d think Apple would have brought the macOS app switcher to the the new MacBook Pro’s OLED strip.
