As we conclude the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend, we just wanted to mention how thankful we are to have a jailbreak and to have such wonderful readers like you here at iDB.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the jailbreak tweaks released in Cydia from Monday, November 19th to Sunday, November 25th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases and then outline the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
SmartVolumeMixer – $2.59
iOS has more than nine types of volume controls, but Apple makes it very convoluted to know which one you’re adjusting when you press the volume buttons on the side of your device.
SmartVolumeMixer is an all-in-one volume control interface that lets you change each one independently without the guesswork.
You can learn more about SmartVolumeMixer and how it works in our full review.
Switches – $1.00
Switches is an awesome new jailbreak tweak that lets you theme the appearance of your iPhone’s universal toggle switches.
The tweak comes with a plethora of different switch options to pick from, and they work across the entire operating system.
You can learn more about Switches and how it works in our full review.
XEdgeProtect – FREE
The iPhone X, XR, XS, and XS Max replace the tried and true Home Button with a gesture-based Home Bar that appears at the bottom of your display. It works great, but sometimes the gesture conflicts with other apps or jailbreak tweaks.
XEdgeProtect is a new free jailbreak tweak that helps to mitigate those potential conflicts by turning the Home Bar gesture into a two-step process.
