If you’re going stir-crazy while coping with the thought of staying home amid Coronavirus-related social distancing efforts, then the good news is you can use your newfound free time to tinker with your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
In this roundup, we’ll show you all the latest jailbreak tweaks to be released from Monday, March 23rd to Sunday, March, 29th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
AirPay – $0.99
AirPay is a newly released jailbreak tweak that redesigns the Apple Pay interface with something heavily inspired by the native AirPods pairing interface in iOS.
AirPay doesn’t impact your iOS device’s Apple Pay functionality whatsoever, apart from the enhanced aesthetics. That said, you can expect payments to be just as smooth of fluid as ever.

CPUTool – $2.50
CPUTool is a newly released jailbreak tweak that lets users underclock their iPhone or iPad’s CPU and/or GPU to achieve increased battery life when the additional power isn’t needed.
The tweak doesn’t modify system files and is entirely reversible. Moreover, it only operates in a jailbroken state.

Dyadic – $1.99
If you wish that there was more synergy between your handset’s Control Center and Today widget interfaces, then you won’t want to miss a newly released jailbreak tweak called Dyadic.
This tweak makes it so you can access more information from one place by combining the aforementioned interfaces into one. Additionally, you can configure gestures and appearance, among other things.

LPMPad – FREE
The iPhone’s Low Power Mode feature can come in handy in a pinch, especially when you’re short a few drops of battery juice. But for whatever reason, Apple hasn’t provided iPad and iPod touch users with such luxuries.
Those who’d like the native Low Power Mode experience on their jailbroken iPad or iPod touch can now use a new and free jailbreak tweak called LPMPad to achieve that goal. What’s more is the tweak implements native Control Center and Settings toggles just like on the iPhone. It’s no copy – it’s the real thing!
You can learn more about LPMPad and where to get it in our full review.
SITUM – FREE
Chances are you’ve happened upon something in a website or an article that you weren’t entirely sure about, and you’ve painstakingly opened a new web browser or tab to conduct a search query. I’ve been there too.
A newly released jailbreak tweak called SITUM aims to make this process a lot easier by adding a new web search option to the Action Menu that appears when highlighting a string of text. Then, you can easily search for whatever it is you’ve highlighted with your preferred search engine.
