iDevices: An all-in-one hub encompassing device & iCloud information for jailbroken handsets

You can find most types of information specific to your iPhone or iPad in the native Settings app, but some tidbits of information are expressly hidden from users because Apple simply thinks it’s better that way.

Not all jailbreakers agree with Apple making those kinds of decisions for them, so it’s no surprise that so many jailbreak tweaks work to undo Apple’s access selections. One of the latest jailbreak tweaks to do that is one called iDevices by iOS developer TitanD3v.

iDevices is best described as an all-in-one hub for viewing various forms of device information in a convenient place. It honestly leaves no stone unturned, displaying both information that users can already view in the Settings app, along with typically elusive information like active RAM usage.

iDevices can be invoked on demand with one of seven different gesture choices, and as depicted in the screenshot examples above, along with the promotional YouTube video provided by the developer below, the iDevices interface offers a sleek and feature rich user experience that you just won’t get out of the native Settings app.

    • See the last time you locked and unlocked your device
    • See the last time you resprang your device
    • See the name of the last app you used
  • And much more…

It’s important to reiterate that while some of what iDevices puts into view can already be accessed from the Settings app, a lot of it can’t be. For example, seeing when your handset was last locked or unlocked and what app was last used can speak volumes to whether someone else is using your handset when you aren’t looking. Even being viewing RAM usage and detailed hardware information isn’t something you can normally do out of the box.

For those things that iDevices does show that can already be viewed in the Settings app, TitanD3v takes things a step further with an advanced user interface that expands more on some of that information. For example, while you can already view installed apps and jailbreak tweaks via Settings, iDevices sorts them by group and tells you when they were last used.
