These past few weeks have felt pretty stale for the jailbreak community, but this week has seen a slight resurgence. Unfortunately, with no public announcements from reputable jailbreak teams at this point in time, there’s still no news as to when a public jailbreak for iOS 10 may drop.
Regardless, developers continue to make tweaks for iOS 9. In this roundup, we’ll show you everything that was released this week, starting with our favorites.
Our favorite releases this week
Columba for iOS 9 – $0.99
Columba for iOS 9 was easily the most robust release of the week, bringing biteSMS-like features to the stale messaging experience on an iOS 9 device.
It’ll become your new best friend whether you use iMessage or SMS. Among the things you can do are bring up a detailed quick compose window, schedule messages for a later date and time, save message templates, and even access improved quick reply features.
All for less than a dollar, this tweak is a steal. You can read our full review of Columba for iOS 9 to learn more about how it works.
Force Delete – FREE
Force Delete is a pretty cool new tweak that lets you both delete App Store apps and hide system apps with nothing more than a 3D Touch gesture.
