Whether you’re taking advantage of the A12(X)-supported Chimera jailbreak by the Electra Team, or the newly-redesigned unc0ver jailbreak by Pwn20wnd, chances are you’re itching for something new that’ll make your jailbroken handset look better than all the rest out there. Fortunately, we’re here to help with that.
This roundup will encompass all the latest jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, June 3rd to Sunday, June 9th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite from the bunch first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Magma Pro – $1.99
Control Center is something we use every day, and yet Apple only gives us the bare minimum in terms of customization for it. With that in mind, Magma Pro is a jailbreak tweak that can help.
With Magma Pro, you can colorize virtually any aspect of the Control Center interface. From the toggles, to the shortcuts, to the sliders and the music controls, you can individualize a personal aesthetic that matches your needs.
We go hands-on with Magma Pro in our full review, so check it out if you’re interested!
Nanobanners – FREE
Banner notifications were initially introduced to iOS to reduce notifications’ intrusiveness, but it seems like the banners in iOS 7 and later have been a bit counterproductive to this idea since they fully cover the Navigation Bar and its buttons.
Based on the circumstances, a jailbreak tweak called Nanobanners was born. This tweak shrinks those banners to the height of your Status Bar, reducing their footprint and ensuring that you can always access the controls in your Navigation Bar when you need them.
You can learn more about Nanobanners and how to get it in our full review.
QuickPrefs – FREE
Some people have more jailbreak tweaks installed than others, and getting to their preference panes in the Settings app can become a chore. With that in mind, iOS developer AnthroPak has released a new free jailbreak tweak called QuickPrefs.
As indicated by the name, QuickPrefs makes it easier to get to your favorite jailbreak tweak-centric preference panes by adding four new entries to the 3D Touch menu that you access when pressing firmly on the Settings app icon.
You can customize your preferred preference panes and more in the Settings app after installation, and we strongly advise checking out our full review to learn more about how QuickPrefs works.
