With Pwn20wnd actively updating the unc0ver jailbreak tool again this week, it’s clear that the community’s needs are not being ignored. That said, jailbreak tweak developers have launched a bevy of captivating releases this week, and we’re about to share those with you.
This roundup will encompass all the jailbreak tweaks we’ve shown you this week, starting Monday, December 3rd to Sunday, December 9th.
Our favorite releases this week
AutoUnlockX – FREE
I love Face ID, but it does have a few shortcomings. For one, unlocking your Face ID-enabled handset is a two-step process when it doesn’t need to be.
If you’re onboard with this idea, then you should check out a free jailbreak tweak called AutoUnlockX. With it, Face ID automatically unlocks your handset if you don’t have any missed notifications.
This tweak is well-conceived because most people want to stay on their Lock screen to read notification previews before unlocking their handset. In any other case, the tweak brings you straight to your Home screen the moment your face is recognized.
You can learn more about AutoUnlockX and its feature set in our full review.
NoSimAlert – FREE
I have more than one iPhone sitting on my shelf at home, and some of them don’t have SIM cards in them. While I’m well aware of my lacking SIM card collection, Apple still feels the need to advertise those annoying ‘No SIM’ alerts from every corner of iOS.
If you’re like me and you’ve had enough of the No SIM alerts, Lock screen banners, and Status Bar indicators, then you should check out a free jailbreak tweak called NoSimAlert.
You can learn more about NoSimAlert in our full review.
Zenith – $1.99
Folders can be useful for Home screen organization purposes, but they aren’t the most aesthetically-pleasing option for reducing clutter.
That’s where Zenith comes in; it’s a complete remake of the popular Apex 2 tweak for jailbroken iOS 11 devices.
You can learn more about how Zenith works and where to get it in our full review.
