Dealing with this COVID-19 situation has been tough for many, but at least you can spend your free time tinkering with your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks to be released from Monday, March 30th to Sunday, April 5th. 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
AirDropConfirm – FREE
Not to hate on AirDrop, but it can be a little too easy to share files with someone else by accident. That’s because it only takes one tap to initiate a file transfer, and there really isn’t a way to cancel that transfer.
AirDropConfirm is a new and free jailbreak tweak that solves this problem by adding a confirmation message to the AirDrop interface. In doing so, you have to specifically confirm that you want to send a file before you do.
You can learn more about AirDropConfirm and how to get it in our full review.
Audicy – $3.49
Audicy is a useful utility for jailbroken devices that lets users import media to their handset’s native libraries, including Music, Videos, Podcasts, Ringtones, and Camera Roll without the use of a computer.
The tweak integrates seamlessly into iOS’ native share sheet and downloading system, allowing users to trim media, add metadata, and import without so much as a hitch.

SwipeExtenderX – $2.49
The iPhone has one of the best software keyboards in the smartphone industry, but there’s always room for improvement. You may not feel like there’s need for improvement, however, until you catch a glimpse of a new jailbreak tweak called SwipeExtenderX.
This tweak integrates more than 20 new features into iOS’ native keyboard interface, allowing for useful shortcuts that can make text-editing and general texting easier on a smaller screen.
