Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Iris, Kai, TypeCentury, and more…

If you were lucky enough to jailbreak iOS or iPadOS 13.5 before Apple stopped signing it earlier in the week, then you’re probably wondering what you can do to make your device more fun to use. That’s where jailbreak tweaks come into play, and it’s one of the reasons we’ve curated this roundup for you.

This roundup will encompass all the latest jailbreak tweaks we’ve showed you from Monday, June 7th to Sunday, June 14th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorites first, and then wrap things up with the rest afterward. These lists are alphabetized for referencing purposes.

Our favorite releases this week

counter – FREE

For those times when you want to keep track of the number of times you unlock your iPhone each day, a newly released jailbreak tweak called counter can help you do that.

This tweak effectively adds a new module to Control Center that displays the number of times you’ve unlocked your iPhone, and you can reset the counter at any time with just a tap.

You can learn more about counter in our full review.

Iris – $1.99

Jailbreakers who do a lot of text messaging on their iPhone are doing themselves a serious injustice if they don’t use a newly released jailbreak tweak called Iris.

Iris provides a plethora of new features in the native Messages app, including color-code tags, automatic filtering, swipe shortcuts for useful actions, and much more.

You can learn more about how powerful Iris is and what it can do for you in our full review.

Kai – $0.99

Kai is a handy jailbreak tweak that adds persistent battery indicators to your Lock screen for all connected accessories and peripherals.

With it, you won’t have to swipe anywhere to see how powered your Apple Watch or AirPods are, and it just makes keeping track of charges more convenient overall.

You can learn more about Kai and where you can get it in our full review.

TypeCentury – $2.49

Read receipts and typing indicators are two of iMessage’s hallmark features that help it stand apart from basic SMS messages, and a newly released jailbreak tweak called TypeCentury alerts you to these kinds of activities from anywhere in iOS.

TypeCentury can display the information in the Status Bar or as a notification, and it can even provide haptic feedback. It’s a great way to know when someone is interacting with your iMessage without being in the Messages app itself.
