Now that jailbreakers have access to the un-patchable checkra1n jailbreak on iOS devices as new as the iPhone X, it’s a great time to be a part of the pwned handset community.
In this roundup, we’ll talk about all the latest jailbreak tweak releases from Monday, December 9th to Sunday, December 15th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorites first and then wrap things up afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Complications – $0.99
Complications is a drop-dead gorgeous new jailbreak tweak that brings Apple Watch Complications to the iPhone’s Lock screen.
The Complications are configurable and even shortcut into the app they represent when tapped. Moreover, you can change their position to feel more comfortable with other tweaks.
You can learn more about Complications in our full review.
Juice is a new jailbreak tweak in its beta stages that aims to bring limitless customization to your pwned handset’s battery indicator.
The tweak provides several default templates that can be edited to your liking. Not only can you utilize still icons with various color options, but you can also take advantage of key frames that let you have dynamic images that change depending on battery status.
You can learn more about Juice Beta and how to get it in our full review.
Tune – $0.99
Those who are exhausted of iOS’ native Now Playing interface should turn their attention to Tune, a new jailbreak tweak that brings two alternative Now Playing interfaces to pwned handsets.
The first, called Helius, is a minimal Now Playing interface with flat UI aesthetics that match the album artwork of whatever might be playing; moreover, it uses gesture-based music controls. The second, called Spin, is a circular Now Playing interface with UI aesthetics akin to 360-degree circles.
