Just last week, we kicked off a new micro-series of posts that are intended to summarize some of the best jailbreak tweaks available for a particular facet of the iOS mobile operating system. Last week’s topic of interest covered the Messages app, but as we move into our latest post, I’m getting an itch for Control Center.
At iDB, we don’t leave any itch un-scratched, so we’ll be asking you to join us as we briefly showcase some of our favorite jailbreak tweaks designed specifically for augmenting the Control Center interface on pwned iOS 14 devices.
So without wasting any more of your time, we’ll dive right into it:
The best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14’s Control Center
Sleepizy 2 – $1.99
First on our list is something juicy that the developer would prefer for us to refer to as Sleepizy 2.
This is a jailbreak tweak that augments the media module in Control Center so that users can more easily fall asleep to their music. It integrates powerful options such as timers, track countdowns, and the ability to toggle certain features of your device after a certain amount of time passes.
One of our favorite parts about this tweak is the way that it seamlessly integrates right into Control Center with such a hefty number of options, and we’re sure you’ll love it just the same.

Yuna – FREE
This one’s for jailbroken iPad users running iPadOS 14, and if you fit that criteria, then we think you’re going to love it.
Yuna helps iPad users make better use of their screen real estate when opening Control Center. Typically, this yields a small Control Center interface on one side of the display with a ton of wasted space, but Yuna fills that wasted space with useful information such as Calendar events, Notes, Weather reports, and more.

Coeus – FREE
Some folks can never have enough shortcuts, and Coeus is a jailbreak tweak that brings that sentiment to iOS 14’s Control Center interface.
Coeus is an add-on for CCSupport that lets users add customizable toggles and shortcuts to Control Center. You can configure these to perform Activator actions or to launch specific apps on your device. The widget itself is highly customizable as well.

CCTime13 – FREE
Control Center doesn’t typically display what time it is, but I often wish it did. That’s where CCTime13 comes into play.
Despite having the number “13” in the name for iOS 13, I can confirm that this tweak works just fine on iOS 14 devices. With it, a time indicator appears in the Status Bar at the top of the Control Center interface so that you never lose sight of what time it is.

BigSurCenter – $1.99
I really like what Apple did with Control Center in macOS Big Sur, but I never really understood why they didn’t bring a similar aesthetic approach to the iOS & iPadOS 14 platform.
Fortunately for those who feel the same way, BigSurCenter is a jailbreak tweak that ports the macOS Big Sur Control Center aesthetic to pwned handsets, allowing us to have our cake and eat it too. Not only does it look good, but I think you’ll also find that the sliders are easier to use, and that more information is available to you at a glance.

Aestea Revived – FREE
Control Center looks bland with the default colors selected by Apple’s design staff, so why not add a splash of color of your own?
Aestea Revived is a jailbreak tweak that makes this possible by letting you colorize the individual buttons in Control Center’s connectivity module. Things in here include Airplane Mode, Bluetooth, Cellular, and Wi-Fi, among others, and you can individually color each one in its disabled and enabled states independently of one another.

Sonyfy – FREE
It’s no secret that one of the best features of Apple’s first party AirPods Pro and AirPods Max is the native iOS 14 support for their built-in active noise cancellation capabilities, but they’re far from the only headphones on the market capable of this feature. So why doesn’t iOS recognize those other headphones that support similar features?
Sonyfy is a free jailbreak tweak that adds native support for some Sony headphones that support active noise cancellation. This effectively lets you control the feature from Control Center without having to invest in the Apple brand or using a third-party app.
You can learn more about Sonyfy and which models of Sony headphones are supported in our full review.
Night Shift Module – FREE
A very simple and highly-recommended iOS 14 Control Center add-on for Night Shift users would be the Night Shift Module for CCSupport.
This add-on lets you toggle Night Shift mode on or off with ease. It lets you bypass all the work of navigating through the maze of options in the Settings app and lets you enjoy instant eye relief late at night or early in the morning.

Prysm – $3.49
If a macOS Big Sur-aesthetic isn’t what you’re going for, but still want your iOS 14 device’s Control Center interface to look as dope as possible, then perhaps you should check out Prysm.
Prysm completely reimagines the Control Center interface with a one-hand friendly collapsible interface that launches from the bottom of the display instead of the top. It also gives the modules and their encompassing toggles and buttons a new look and feel. It’s as satisfying to use as it is fun to look at.

CCBalance – FREE
Last on our list of jailbreak tweaks for Control Center on iOS 14 will be CCBalance, a simple add-on that adds an audio balance setting to the volume module.
With it, you can more easily adjust for hearing discrepancies in your left and right ears. By using a Haptic Touch gesture on the volume module, you can drag a dedicated slider left or right to adjust how loud either speaker will be.

We know there are a lot of Control Center-centric jailbreak tweaks out on the market today, many of which we couldn’t include in this piece. For that reason, we welcome comments below if you’d like to offer any honorable mentions that fellow readers might be able to take advantage of.
Please remember that suggestions should be compatible with iOS 14, as this series is effectively targeting jailbreakers running iOS 14 only. We look forward to your comments and hearing what you have to share!
