A lot has been going on in the jailbreak community as of late, and it’s no surprise that developers continue to build jailbreak tweaks that can help you trick out your iPhone or iPad so it stands out from the crowd.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, February 11th to Sunday, February 17th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites and then wrap things up afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
AirWave – FREE
AirWave is a free jailbreak tweak that aims to increase the number of gesture you can use when you have a pair of AirPods connected to your device.
Unlike some other jailbreak tweaks that simply reassign existing gestures, AirWave creates two new ones, maximizing your control over media playback and more.
You can learn more about AirWave and why it’s a great tweak to have in our full review.
EZBatteries – FREE
EZBatteries is a new jailbreak tweak that makes it easier to discern the battery percentage of connected peripherals, such as AirPods.
When connected, you can double-tap on the Status Bar to reveal an alert with information about your iPhone’s battery and any connected peripherals.
EZBatteries is a free download, so check out our full review to learn where you can get it.
TabBlocker – FREE
One of my biggest pet peeves is browsing the internet in mobile Safari only to be jolted to a new tab because of some ad that I accidentally tapped on.
TabBlocker is a new free jailbreak tweak that aims to prevent this from happening; it lets you blacklist certain websites so that they can’t open new tabs.
You can learn more about TabBlocker in our full review.
