Hot off the heels of an updated unc0ver jailbreak with support for iOS 13.0-13.3 on A12(X)-A13 devices, it is now possible to jailbreak the bulk of all iPhones or iPads in circulation with either checkra1n or unc0ver. The only exception would be A12 or newer devices running iOS 13.3.1.
If you have a jailbreakable device, then you may want to find some add-ons to go along with it. In this piece, we’ll discuss our favorite jailbreak tweaks released between Monday, February 17th and Sunday February 23rd. As usual, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Dots 2 – $2.00
One of the most lacking aspects of the iOS platform is utilization of the OLED display on some of Apple’s latest iPhones. One way they could do this, but choose not to, is with an always-on-display that provides insight into any missed notifications you might have.
Dots 2 is a new jailbreak tweak that confronts this shortcoming head-on. The tweak works by displaying pulsating and colorful dots on your handset’s display while it’s locked, and the rest of the display remains pitch black as to save battery life.
You can learn more about Dots 2 and how it works in our full review.
Gravitation – FREE
One of my all-time favorite quirky jailbreak tweaks to install when I first began jailbreaking introduced realistic gravitational physics to my Home screen. With that in mind, it may come as no surprise to anyone here that a new release called Gravitation triggers my nostalgia.
Just like the classic tweaks of yore, Gravitation lets you simulate a gravitational environment on your Home screen, causing all your app icons to fall in the direction of gravity. The tweak is activated with a shake gesture, and after shaking your device one more time, the icons quickly snap back into place.
You can learn more about Gravitation and why it’s so fun to use in our full review.
OneHandWizard 2 – $1.99
For those occasional instances where you try to use your massive iPhone with just one hand and fail miserably, there’s a tweak for that.
OneHandWizard 2 aims to bring a much more intuitive one-handed mode to your iPhone, and to be quite frank, it kicks the native Reachability feature’s butt.

Quanta (iOS 13) – FREE
Those who use Apple’s first-party Smart Battery Cases will quickly recognize that they aren’t really all that smart. When attached, your iPhone’s battery indicator displays 100% charge with a constant charging status in the Status Bar until the Smart Battery Case dies. That’s right… meh.
Quanta (iOS 13) is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak that aims to make the Smart Battery Case’s implementation into iOS a bit more intelligent. With it, your Status Bar’s battery level displays a seamless average between the handset’s battery level and the case’s battery level, of course taking into account that the case’s battery is only about 33% the size of the iPhone’s.
You can learn more about Quanta and how it augments the Smart Battery Case experience in our full review.
Springtomize 5 – $4.99
If you’re a sucker for all-in-one jailbreak tweaks because of their tendency to help reduce the number of smaller add-ons you have to install to get the effect you want, then you’ll be happy to know that Springtomize 5 – perhaps the most popular of all all-in-one tweaks – is now officially available for pwned iOS 13 devices.
Just like its predecessors, Springtomize 5 brings a plethora of user interface customization options that are carefully organized into different sections. With it, you can give your jailbroken iPhone or iPad a unique look and feel that’ll make all your friends jealous.
