Colorize the page dots on your jailbroken handset with Dots color

Jailbreakers can customize virtually anything they want about their iPhone or iPad’s user experience and behavior, but if you consider yourself a bit of a minimalist and prefer subtler changes over the more extravagant ones, then we think you might want to try a new and free jailbreak tweak release called Dots color by iOS developer 8a1wkar.

Just as the tweak’s name implies, Dots color lets users apply a custom color to the paging dots that typically appear on the Home Screen and Lock Screen. As you’ll see in the screenshot examples above, the selected page dot remains white, whereas the deselected page dots appear red instead of grayed out.

Once installed, Dots color adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users can configure the tweak’s color options to their liking:

Here, you can:

  • Toggle Dots color on or off on demand
  • Choose a custom Home Screen page dots color
  • Choose a custom Lock Screen page dots color

The developer provides a Respring button at the bottom of the preference pane to help you save any changes you make.

Customizing the color of your handset’s page dots is a great way to add user personality to the device. It can also make your page dots more attractive to look at against certain wallpaper surfaces or in tandem with certain themes.

If you’re interested in trying Dots color, then you can download it for free from the BigBoss repository via your preferred package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices and is open source on the developer’s GitHub page.
