One thing most jailbreakers have in common is that they like to configure their device in ways that Apple would never allow out of the box. One of the best ways to do that is with the help of jailbreak tweaks.
In this roundup, we’ll showcase all the latest jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, August 31st to Sunday, September 6th. 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
Coeus – FREE
Coeus is an easy recommendation for this list because it makes Control Center that much more useful by adding a plethora of toggles that wouldn’t even be imaginable on a stock handset.
With Coeus, you can add custom app shortcuts and Activator shortcuts to a new module in the Control Center interface for ease of access.
You can learn more about Coeus and how it works in our full review.
ConfirmPasteboard – FREE
With privacy-centric concerns on the rise, now is a better time than ever to ensure that your device’s pasteboard can’t be snooped on by your favorite apps.
ConfirmPasteboard is a new jailbreak tweak that brings this feature to jailbroken iOS 13 devices, long before it becomes available with iOS 14 later this Fall.
You can learn more about ConfirmPasteboard and how it works in our full review.
Enlighten – $1.99
Enlighten is a new jailbreak tweak that tries to bring better low light camera performance to iPhones, especially older ones that don’t have access to Apple’s native Night Mode feature.
The tweak uses advanced photo capturing algorithms to ensure high quality photographs in dark situations without the unsightly halo effects that Apple’s own system sometimes introduces.
You can learn more about Enlighten and how it improves low light photography on the iPhone in our full review.
iustum – FREE
With the iPad’s large and, frankly, desktop-esque display real estate, it’s somewhat disappointing that Apple didn’t make the iPad’s notifications system more like the one in macOS.
A new jailbreak tweak called iustum brings a macOS-inspired notification banner system to the iPad by shrinking the overall size of banner notifications and pushing them off to the right side of the display.
You can learn more about iustum and where you can get it in our full review.
