Control Center came with quite a drastic UI change after iOS 10. It used to be a much fuller interface and it didn’t appear as a floating window in the middle of the screen like it does now.
A handful of elements that make up the iOS UI in its entirety are round or have rounded corners; this includes, but is not limited to: passcode buttons, Control Center toggles, the corners of banner notifications, and Home screen folders, among other things.
I often get asked about how to delay the Lock screen‘s auto-dimming feature, and it would seem that a viable solution has conveniently slipped into Cydia this week.
Dubbed CustomLockscreenDuration, this new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Andreas Henriksson lets you choose how long of a delay there is before your Lock screen falls asleep. This is great for anyone who uses Lock screen-related mods, because the screen sometimes tends to dim while you’re interacting with the tweaks.
After installation, you can head right into the Settings app, where you will find a preferences pane tailored around configuring the dim timer: Read More
If you’ve ever used the YouTube app on your iPhone before, then you know Google has good taste in what a volume HUD should look like. Obviously, the monstrosity of a volume HUD that Apple continues to impose on iOS users is not something said users like to see, as it gets in the way of everything.
Because Google has the right idea, iOS developer midkin decided to create a YouTube-inspired volume HUD system that’s made to work across your whole iOS system. As a result, the new free jailbreak tweak YouTubeVolume was born. Read More
One thing the jailbreak community does best is change the way iOS looks through the channels of jailbreak tweaks and themes, and one of the latest releases to do so is Defluxit, by c0ldra1n.
This tweak is intended to give your Lock screen’s incoming notifications a visually-appealing fade away effect that puts emphasis on your most recent notifications, as shown above.
The last several weeks have seen the release of many jailbreak tweaks aimed at colorizing different elements of iOS, and it doesn’t seem like the trend will be dying down any time soon.
Yet another tweak to join the growing array of color customization tweaks is Moose by iOS developer Tom Effects. This tweak lets you tint the cursor and text highlighting tools you typically see when editing text in iOS. Read More
When you drag Notification Center down from the top of your screen, the interface normally just falls into place. The stock animation is a little boring, and some might argue that it could do with some additional creativity.
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
