Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Akara, PerfectCalc, & more…

After what felt like an unending lull in the jailbreak community, things started getting kicking back up again in the past couple of weeks after a whole lot of hubbub about upcoming untether releases and reassurances that iOS & iPadOS 15 could see jailbreaks despite Apple’s best efforts to make jailbreaking harder to achieve.

Those parts and pieces of good news paint a particularly positive picture of things to come, and that’s what just what we like here at iDownloadBlog. So much so, that we’re coming back at you this Sunday morning with another roundup to help summarize it all.

In this piece, we’ll go over all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-related news announced from Monday, September 27th to Sunday, October 3rd. As always, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite tidbits first and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else toward the end. So without further ado, let’s get started!

Our favorite releases this week

Akara – 2.99

Anyone who uses Control Center on a regular basis recognizes its workflow value, however it continues to look mostly the same despite the release of several new iterations of iOS.

Akara is a new jailbreak tweak that gives Control Center a new, yet familiar user interface. Users will enjoy all the same benefits they currently do with Control Center, but it will look much nicer in the process.

You can learn more about Akara in our full review post.

PerfectCalc – FREE

I use the Calculator app on my iPhone all the time, but one thing that really irks me is that I can’t view my arithmetic input at the top of the app like I can in other calculator apps or on physical handheld calculators.

PerfectCalc is a free and simple add-on for the Calculator app that takes this qualm and spins it around. After installing it, the Calculator app displays your arithmetic at the top of the app, just as you’d expect it to.

You can learn more about PerfectCalc and how it works in our full review post.
