Apple seems to be making the shift to larger iPhone displays, and while this is great for media consumption, it also tends to make one-handed usage a bit more challenging in most scenarios. This is precisely why iOS comes with an accessibility feature dubbed Reachability.
Despite how useful Reachability can be at times, its aesthetics sometimes leave a lot to be desired. With that in mind, iOS developer CydiaGeek created a new free jailbreak tweak called ReachabilitySheer to make the Reachability interface look both cleaner and nicer.
As you’ll notice in the before and after screenshot examples above, ReachabilitySheer does away with the silly waste of space at the top of the native Reachability interface. It adds full transparency to the interface, letting you see your Home screen wallpaper at the top of the display despite everything being pushed down for the sake of one-handed usage.
You might’ve also noticed that the Reachability chevron is still visible in the After screenshot, and that’s because CydiaGeek wanted to make it easy to discern whether you were still in Reachability mode or not at just a glance.
ReachabilitySheer is an incredibly simple tweak, and it doesn’t even have any options to configure. Those looking to make their Reachability interface more aesthetically pleasing need only install the tweak and enjoy what it has to offer.
If you’re interested in trying ReachabilitySheer, then you can download it for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 12 devices, including the A12(X) variety.
