Welcome to this week’s jailbreak tweak roundup – your one-stop shop for finding all the latest tweak and add-on releases for the week starting on Monday, December 16th and ending on Sunday, December 22nd.
As always, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases this week first, and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
LetMeDecline – FREE
The iPhone is a great communication device, but when it it’s locked, it’s almost as if Apple wants you to answer every call that comes in. Rather than displaying options to answer or decline the phone call, the iPhone presents a ‘slide to answer’ bar. Users can double-press the side button to decline the phone call, but that’s a bit less obvious than it should be.
Those who fancy a civil solution to this apparent oversight will enjoy a free jailbreak tweak called LetMeDecline. As you might come to expect, this tweak displays a decline button as an incoming call option even when your iPhone is locked, making it easier to decline phone calls you don’t feel like answering.
You can learn more about LetMeDecline and how it works in our full review.
Tritium Beta – $2.00+
The iPhone lacks an always-on display like the Apple Watch Series 5 boasts, but it doesn’t have to. A new project called Tritium brings this functionality to the iPhone, although the tweak is currently in its beta stages at this time.
Given the nature of always-on display technology, this tweak looks and works best on handsets with an OLED display. The black background provides power savings, while the date and time always appear for the user’s convenience. What’s more is the date and time display is customizable.
You can learn more about Tritium and where to get it in our full review.
