Some of the best minimalist-friendly jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14

Minimalism is a characteristic that many people hold near and dear to them for one reason or another. Having said that, it seemed like a good opportunity to discuss what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for supporting minimalism on iOS & iPadOS 14.

This list will encompass jailbreak tweaks that either reduce clutter or superfluous elements from the iOS & iPadOS 14 user interface.

The best minimalism jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14

NoClutter – FREE

NoClutter is an excellent place for any minimalist to start, as it offers a slew of different options for hiding user interface elements from view.

Whether you’re trying to hide the always-visible Home Bar, those unsightly separator lines, those pesky breadcrumb links, or something else in iOS 14, this tweak probably has an option for it.

TransparentDock – FREE

TransparentDock is a free jailbreak tweak that does exactly what it sounds like — it makes the background of your Home Screen’s application Dock totally transparent.

With the background removed, you get to say goodbye to a superfluous user interface element and glance at a more uniform grid of app icons in your Home Screen.

Atlas – $0.99

Atlas enhances the native media player on jailbroken iOS 14 devices that evokes a sense of minimalism by removing the unnecessary backgrounds and buttons that otherwise smother your limited screen real estate.

With it, you can remove some of the superfluous controls and continue to control your media playback with fewer visual distractions getting in your way.

Minimal – $1.49

Another thing that might be of interest to minimalists is a jailbreak tweak called, wait for it, Minimal.

This tweak simply replaces iOS 14’s bulky notification banners with Status Bar-based indicators, keeping your notifications out of the way and making them less intrusive.

LockScreenHiddenButton – FREE

Despite how useful the Lock Screen’s dedicated camera and flashlight Quick Action buttons are, it seems as if there is a rather significant portion of the population that would prefer if they weren’t there to begin with.

Fortunately, the free LockScreenHiddenButton jailbreak tweak makes it easy to hide those buttons from the Lock Screen, giving you the minimalist unlocking experience you’ve been looking for.

Houdini – FREE

While the above jailbreak tweak is great for removing the Lock Screen’s Quick Action buttons, Houdini is a great option for when you’re wanting to hide more than just the Quick Action buttons.

With Houdini, you can hide Quick Action buttons, unlock text, media player, date and time, and much more. You can be as borderline minimalist or hardcore minimalist as you want to be with your Lock Screen with the Houdini tweak.

BlackOutCC – FREE

Eliminating the background colors of the Control Center interface has never been easier than it is with a simple jailbreak tweak called BlackOutCC.

The BlackOutCC tweak simply replaces Control Center’s blurred background with a black one, muting its aesthetic tones in such as way as to appease minimalist minds.

Zenith – $1.99

You could use your Home Screen’s folders to organize apps, but if you want a less cluttering alternative to folders, then you just might love an add-on dubbed Zenith, which introduces nested app icons.

Although Zenith doesn’t officially support iOS & iPadOS 14, a free jailbreak tweak called Zenith iOS 14 Fix makes it fully compatible as you’d come to expect it.

Hydra – FREE

If you like the Zenith tweak we showed you above and everything it stands for, but aren’t able to pay for the tweak, then you may instead enjoy using Hydra, a free alternative.

Hydra can also best app icons of your choice underneath other icons, allowing you to avoid using folders and reduce Home Screen clutter.

Are You Sur? – FREE

One of the things that still feels obtusely out of place in iOS & iPadOS 14 would be the alert pop-ups. The aesthetic hasn’t changed much with the times, despite other Apple operating systems taking a more simplistic UI approach.

Are You Sur? is an add-on for jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 14 devices that brings macOS Big Sur-inspired alerts to the iPhone and iPad, complete with background-blurring effects that hone your focus on the task at hand.

Satellite – FREE

If you’re familiar with the way that Do Not Disturb mode works on iOS & iPadOS 15, then you would already know that it’s not as clunky with the big honking notification banner on the Lock Screen.

Satellite is a free jailbreak tweak that ports this experience to jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 14 devices, allowing you to use Do Not Disturb in a very minimalist-friendly fashion.

Given the unheard of popularity of minimalism, it should come as no surprise that it’s a booming department for jailbreak tweak development. Of course, even if you’re a jailbreaker and not a developer,  you can use these add-ons to achieve the ideal setup that you deem to be minimalist enough.
