Jailbreak tweaks of the week: AlwaysOnHeadphones, Ares, and more…

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for the jailbreak community thanks to a slew of jailbreak tool updates from both the checkra1n and unc0ver teams adding support for iOS & iPadOS 13.5. Thankfully, we’re here to help keep you apprised of the best of the latest jailbreak tweak releases.

In this roundup, we’ll show you all the best jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, June 1st, to Sunday, June 7th. As usual, we’ll start things off by showcasing our favorite releases and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward.

Our favorite releases this week

AlwaysOnHeadphones – $0.99

AlwaysOnHeadphones is a simple solution to a very real problem that comes by way of accepting phone calls on your Apple Watch when you’re using a Bluetooth headset or headphones: it forces audio to play through your Bluetooth device instead of the Apple Watch’s built-in speaker.

You can learn more about why this tweak is so essential for Apple Watch users in our full review.

Ares – $1.99

Ares is a redesigned user interface for your Siri personal assistant. It shrinks the full-screen Siri interface into a space approximately the same size as the AirPods pairing interface, and best of all, it doesn’t take away from Siri’s functionality in any way, shape, or form.

If you demand even less intrusion than that, Ares also provides users with a notification banner-sized Siri interface that barely covers any of your user interface.

You can learn more about Ares and what it can do for you in our full review.

Eclipse for iOS 13 – $2.50

iOS 13 may come with dark mode right out of the box now, but that doesn’t mean everyone likes Apple’s native implementation, and that’s where Eclipse for iOS 13 comes into play.

Two of the native implementation’s most significant annoyances are when dark mode doesn’t apply to certain apps and the fact that some people would prefer pitch black dark mode instead of alternating black and dark colors. Eclipse for iOS 13 lets users customize their dark mode colors and more, and it’s a great way to get more out of dark mode if you’re using an iOS 13 device.

NotesCreationDate13 – FREE

One of my biggest pet peeves with Apple’s Notes app is that when you update a note, the date and time on that note becomes updated as well. This makes it more difficult to discern when that note was first created, as it overwrites that indicator with a last updated date and time instead.

With a new jailbreak tweak called NotesCreationDate13, you can more easily tell both when a note was last created and when it was last updated, as it spells out both timestamps for you at the top of every note you create.
