It’s been a busy week for the jailbreak community as Chimera and unc0ver have each picked up support for @NedWilliamson’s new Sock Puppet exploit, permitting those with up to iOS 12.3 beta installed to jailbreak their handsets. That said, those folks must be itching for ideas as to what to install on their newly-pwned handsets. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.
This roundup encompasses all the latest jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, July 15th to Sunday, July 21st. As always, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first and then wrap things up by outlining the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
ExactTimePhone – FREE
I can’t even count how many times I’ve tried to reference my Phone app’s call history log to determine when a previous phone call took place, only to be disappointed by the lackluster timestamp supplied by Apple out of the box.
ExactTimePhone solves this problem once and for all by displaying the exact time of an incoming or outgoing phone call underneath the day or date, as shown above.
Honey – $2.99
With Honey, you can experience a professionally-polished Apple Watch-esque Home screen experience on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
Honey lets you hide or show the default application Dock, apply a custom wallpaper blur of your choice, and much more, and it looks incredible.
You can learn more about Honey and how it works in our full review.
Rainbow – $0.99
Rainbow is a new jailbreak tweak that lets you customize your handset’s systemwide tint color to be anything you want.
You can learn more about how you can use Rainbow to augment your iPhone or iPad’s aesthetics in our full review.
