If you’re lucky enough to have a jailbroken iOS or iPadOS 14 device in your possession in this day and age, then there are certainly a lot of perks to be enjoyed from the bevy of add-ons available.
We cover all the best jailbreak tweak releases and news throughout the week, and we understand that it can be challenging to keep up with it all. That’s why we make a weekly recap just like this one to make everything easier to digest.
In this piece, we’ll go over all the latest jailbreak tweaks and related news tidbits spanning the week of Monday, May 17th to Sunday, May 26th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases first and then move on to an outline of everything else afterward. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Our favorite releases this week
1ONE – $1.99
1ONE is an all-in-one jailbreak tweak for customizing the iOS platform.
You can learn more about 1ONE and what it can do in our full review.
Current – FREE
Current is a neat new jailbreak tweak that displays a wave-centric animation on the Lock Screen (and optionally elsewhere in iOS) to depict your battery level.
You can learn more about Current and how it looks in our full review.
Nova – $2.50
Nova is a new jailbreak tweak that allows jailbroken iPhone users to schedule iMessage and SMS messages for a designated date and time.
One way to use this tweak effectively is to prepare Happy Birthday and holiday greeting messages for friends and family so that they’re ready to go when the time comes.
You can learn more about Nova and how it works in our full review.
YTClassicQualitySelector – FREE
YTClassicQualitySelector is a new and free jailbreak tweak that reverts the YouTube app to the older video playback quality selector.
With it, users can access different video playback resolutions more easily without the cryptic and automatic ‘best for quality’ and ‘best for data’ options.
