Things have been getting more intense for the jailbreak community lately, not only due to of the surge in jailbreak tweak development but also because of the completion of the Meridian jailbreak for all 64-bit iOS 10 devices.
This roundup will encompass all the jailbreak tweaks that have been launched in Cydia from August 13th until August 19th. As usual, we’ll begin by talking about our favorites, and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Avertas – FREE
Avertas is a new jailbreak tweak that ports Auxo’s famous Hot Corners and Quick Switcher features to jailbroken iOS 11 devices.
With these features, you can quickly get to the Home Screen or Lock screen or access recently-used apps in a pinch.
Avertas can supercharge your multitasking workflow, so we recommend reading our full review to learn more about how it works.
IntelligentPass – $2.00
No one likes the inconvenience of entering their passcode or authenticating with Face ID/Touch ID when they don’t have to, and that’s where a jailbreak tweak called IntelligentPass comes in handy.
IntelligentPass automatically disables your handset’s passcode (and Face ID/Touch ID) in l0w-risk environments, such as at your home. You can set up various parameters to recognize these low-risk environments, including schedules, Wi-Fi connections, and more.
To learn more about how IntelligentPass can improve your workflow, be sure to read our in-depth review.
Mapsic – $0.99
Depending on how much navigating you do with your iPhone, Mapsic could be a useful addition to your jailbroken handset.
This tweak incorporates music controls into Apple and Google Maps, allowing you to command your playback without having to switch between apps or perform other complciated gestures while driving.
SafariUnleashed PRO – $1.00
Safari comes with a handful of internal settings that Apple disables out of the box, but a new jailbreak tweak called SafariUnleashed PRO makes these settings accessible by the end user.
Among the things SafariUnleashed PRO brings to the table are full-screen web browsing, iPad-style tab switching, always-on Reader mode, and forcing websites not to track you.
You can learn more about SafariUnleashed PRO and how it unlocks the full potential of the mobile Safari web browser in our full review.
