How to enable Drunk Mode on iPhone

Drunk Mode iOS 7

You are out for a night on the town with your friends, and perhaps you’ve had one too many Long Island Iced Teas or Peppermint Schnapps. We’re not judging you, but others might be when you send them a misspelled text message or perhaps worse. Fortunately, if you have an iPhone, this is an easily avoidable situation.

While it might sound stupid, a jailbreak tweak called Drunk Mode actually serves a relatively useful purpose. The tweak is a very simple one; when enabled, it prevents you from sending iMessages to your friends, family, boss, co-workers or whoever else you probably shouldn’t be talking to at the time. Details ahead… 

Drunk Mode adds a toggle switch below Airplane Mode in the Settings app that proves easy to access on your Friday night out. When enabled, a notification box will pop up with the message “go home, you are drunk” when you attempt to message someone through the Messages app.

There are a few limitations to this tweak, however, with the main one being that you could simply go back into Settings and toggle off the tweak. The other downside is that it does not prevent you from sending messages with third-party messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, Kik Messenger or WhatsApp.

In all seriousness, though, Drunk Mode should not serve as a valid excuse for drinking excessively without any consequences. This is more of a novelty tweak than anything, and not getting drunk in the first place is probably a better idea. Drunk Mode is free on Cydia in the BigBoss repo.
