Some of the best jailbreak tweaks for the Phone app on iOS 14

Despite how iPhones are personal pocket computers with so much more capability than merely placing phone calls, the native Phone app is still an integral part of the device’s user experience. Still, Apple almost never provides any upgrades to this seemingly under appreciated component of the iPhone.

Jailbreakers, on the other hand, know that things as simple as the Phone app can always be improved, and that’s why there are so many jailbreak tweaks for the Phone app in circulation today.

Since jailbreaking is a major part of what we do here at iDownloadBlog, we thought we’d take this opportunity today to showcase what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for enhancing the native Phone app on iOS 14. So without further ado, let’s make the iPhone’s calling experience even better!

The best jailbreak tweaks for the Phone app

EasyDialer14 – FREE

If you used a flip phone back before iPhones and other smartphones were virtually everywhere, then there’s a chance you might recall a handy dialing feature dubbed T9.

T9 was intended to make dialing phone numbers on 3×4 physical dial pads easier, but it became somewhat moot after smartphones started to offer one-tap calling. Fortunately for those feeling nostalgic, EasyDialer14 brings the feature to the iPhone’s native Phone app dial pad.

Searchy – FREE

The Phone app’s Recents list is a handy tool for calling people back or viewing your call history, but it lacks a glaringly obvious feature for those who make and receive lots of phone calls: history search.

With Searchy, users can enjoy the luxury of a search bar at the top of their Recents list. It allows them to search a name or number and view all history entries for that particle search result at a glance.

AppleWatchCallNotificationFix – FREE

Jailbreakers using certain version(s) of iOS 14 might sometimes notice notice that incoming calls don’t ring on their Apple Watch when their handset is connected to a CarPlay-enabled head unit.

AppleWatchCallNotificationFix is a free and simple add-on intended for addressing this odd bug.

CallFavorites – FREE

When you add contacts to your Phone app’s Favorites list, they can be more easily accessed for calling later on. But it still requires the user to open the Phone app.

CallFavorites is a simple add-on that lets users invoke a 3D Touch or Haptic Touch gesture on the Home Screen’s Phone app icon to enjoy a dedicated Favorites list for faster contact.

Contacts Extended – $0.99

Albeit not specifically for the Phone app, Contacts Extended is an add-on for the Contacts app that can make contacting other people easier.

With it, users can swipe on individual contacts in the Contacts app to see more ways to communicate with them, including but not limited to third-party messaging or calling apps.

Escape – $1.50

Ever find yourself in an awkward or problematic situation that you needed to navigate your way out of, but didn’t have a good enough excuse to do so?

Escape is a jailbreak tweak that can invoke a fake incoming phone call with contact details of your choice that you can use as an excuse to leave a room or situation that you find uncomfortable.

Digitnetic – $0.99

When you wish you could summon a phone dialer from anywhere in iOS, you would ordinarily be out of luck, but a jailbreak tweak dubbed Digitnetic makes this a reality.

Once installed, Digitnetic lets users take advantage of a gesture of their choosing to invoke either the calculator or a phone dialer. The tweak is highly configurable as far as aesthetics are concerned too.

You can find out more about Digitnetic, including where to get it from, in our full review post.

RomanPad – FREE

If you’re living the fancy lifestyle and your Phone app’s dialer pad just isn’t doing it for you anymore, then perhaps RomanPad could be of assistance.

Much like the tweak’s name suggests, RomanPad offers a Roman Numeral-inspired aesthetic for the dialer pad buttons in the Phone app.

That’s what we’ve got for today’s list, but we’ll be back again soon with another list, albeit with a focus on a different aspect of the iOS 14 mobile operating system.
