Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Dayn, Hub, Photon, and more…

Thanks to a brand-new 0day exploit, the unc0ver jailbreak now supports iOS 13.5 on all the handsets that can run it. So that just leaves us with one question: what should be we install on our pwned handset?

In this roundup, we’ll discuss all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, May 25th to Sunday, May 31st. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites first and then wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.

Our favorite releases this week

Dayn – $1.99

Dayn is a really cool tweak that augments iOS 13’s notification system with improved aesthetics and functionality for banners. One of the tweak’s coolest features is the Continuous Banner, which lets you view a conversation’s full context from the banner itself.

You can learn more about Dayn and how it works in our full review.

Hub – $2.49

Hub is an all-in-one interface for jailbroken iPhones with a little of something for everyone that can be invoked from anywhere. Whether you need access to certain apps, a way to jot down some notes, search the web, access timers, or toggle system functions, Hub can do all this and more from a single interface.

Photon – $2.99

Photon offers a true ambient display for jailbroken iOS 13 devices, complete with an always-on display mode, Apple Watch-centric time displays, and a plethora of other customizations that will help your iPhone stand out in a room full of non-jailbroken handsets.
