No matter what jailbreak you might be using, or what package manager you might prefer, one thing we all have in common as a community is the desire to customize our liberated handsets beyond that of Apple’s stock parameters.
Those looking for new jailbreak tweaks will find this piece helpful, as it contains all the latest releases from Monday, February 24th to Sunday, March 1st. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
Winter Mode for Apple Watch – FREE
If you’re one to wear heavy jackets or bundle up your wrists in warm or fuzzy sleeves during the Winter, then you might have trouble feeling or noticing your Apple Watch’s incoming notifications.
Winter Mode for Apple Watch is a new and free jailbreak tweak that prevents you from missing those subtle taps by compelling your iPhone to sound the same notifications that your Apple Watch does. This way, if you don’t notice the tap because how just how heavily dressed you are, you’ll still receive all your notifications in time.
You can learn more about Winter Mode for Apple Watch and how it works in our full review.
ColorfulNotifs – FREE
If you’re looking for a quick and simple way to add some personalization to your newly jailbroken iPhone or iPad, then you might start with a free jailbreak tweak called ColorfulNotifs.
As you can see in the screenshot example above, ColorfulNotifs colors your incoming notification banners using the dominant color from the app icon that the notification represents.
You can learn more about ColorfulNotifs and were you can find it in our full review.
FloatyTab – $0.99
FloatyTab is an interesting new jailbreak tweak that replaces the traditional Tab Bar in several of the most popular apps with a floating alternative that can be styled or colorized in different ways.
The floating Tab Bar works just like the original, but it looks substantially more modern than the native Tab Bar that has remained almost unchanged since the conception of the first iOS.
You can learn more about FloatyTab and how it works in our full review.
Harbor 3 – $3.99
If you’ve always appreciated the behavior of the Dock in macOS and wondered why the Dock in iOS and iPadOS didn’t behave the same way, then you might appreciate a jailbreak tweak called Harbor 3.
Harbor 3 introduces several macOS-esque Dock qualities to the iOS and iPadOS platform, including icon magnification, greater icon capacity, and more.
You can learn more about Habor 3 and what it can do for you in our full review.
Prysm – $3.49
The Control Center interface has started looking a bit stale in recent years, but a newly released jailbreak tweak called Prysm intends to breathe new life into what could only be described as a quickly-aging interface.
With its beautiful modernization of the Control Center interface, Prysm introduces new aesthetics and behaviors that make using the interface feel more like how it should on iOS 13.
Those interested in learning more about Prysm should have a look at our in-depth review.
