It’s that time of the week again, which means we’re coming at you with a roundup of all the latest jailbreak news content and tweak releases from this past week.

iDB rounds up all of this information every Sunday to make it easier to catch up on jailbreak news you may have missed throughout the work week — so follow along as we dive into the content spanning Monday, June 6th to Sunday, June 12th.

Our favorite releases this week

Ambience – $3.99

Ambience is a first-of-its-kind jailbreak tweak that forces HomeKit-compatible RGB light bulbs in your home to act as ambient light when watching videos via Safari or YouTube on your pwned iPhone.

This incredible immersive experience works with light bulbs, light strips, and other types of lights. The tweak can also be configured to only apply to certain room(s) in your home.

You can learn all about Ambience and how it works in our full review post.

CircleApps – $1.49


Sometimes you need faster access to your favorite apps, and CircleApps is a great way to achieve that goal.

With CircleApps, you can invoke a circular app launcher from anywhere on your iPhone with a gesture of your choosing. Then, you can easily launch the app you need.

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