Some of the best Apple Pencil-inspired jailbreak tweaks for iOS & iPadOS 14

One thing that jailbreak hobbyists are always trying to do is squeeze a little additional performance out of their device and accessories by way of jailbreak tweaks, and iDownloadBlog takes this ambition very seriously.

That’s why we’ll be using this roundup to discuss what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for enhancing the capabilities of the Apple Pencil 2 on jailbroken iPads running iPadOS 14.

So if you’re ready to do more with what could be one of the best accessories for your iPad, then read on as we show you a few of the best ways to do exactly that.

The best jailbreak tweaks for Apple Pencil 2

Pencil Pro – FREE

Completely free of charge, the Pencil Pro jailbreak tweak lets you do more with your Apple Pencil 2 than you can already right out of the box.

This tweak makes pairing new Apple Pencil 2 accessories even easier; simply magnetically attach the Apple Pencil 2 to pair it and you’re done. It also lets you use the Apple Pencil 2 with finger-only gestures, including launching Control Center and accessing notifications, among other things.

PencilChargingIndicator – FREE

One of the things I really appreciate about using the Apple Pencil 2 with my iPad Pro is how magnetically connecting it compels iOS to display the battery level in a tiny little pill-shaped pop-up. It always used to leave me wondering why the same interface wasn’t used for other cheating actions.

In this case, a free jailbreak tweak called PencilChargingIndicator provides a similar charging pop-up for the host device when connecting it to a power source, and it works with both iPhones and iPads running iOS or iPadOS 14. If you’re using an iPad, it’ll feel more consistent with how you always see the same pop-up when docking your Apple Pencil. Win-win.

Electrode – FREE

And how about applying a similar Apple Pencil 2 pop-up-inspired aesthetic to your device’s low power alerts? Doing such is definitely possible with the Electrode jailbreak tweak.

This tweak will display said pop-ups both when connecting your device to a charger and when your device’s battery starts to get too low for that added consistency in aesthetics.

Next Music – FREE

And if you were hoping that the same aesthetics could be applied to your Now Playing experience, then you’re in luck, because there’s a such thing as a jailbreak tweak called Next Music that does exactly that.

As you’ll see in the illustration, the banner contains a progress indicator of your current song or media piece, along with the name and artist of the song or media piece, and an app icon to show which app is playing it.

PencilBanner – $1.50

And if you liked the jailbreak tweak above, then there’s no doubt you might also find a jailbreak tweak called PencilBanner appealing. That’s because it applies the same pill-shaped banner aesthetic to other aspects of the mobile operating system.

Among the things PencilBanner applies to are: toggling Dark Mode on or off, Low Power Mode alerts, app launches, Now Playing media changes, and believe it or not, device charging — just like the tweak above. PencilBanner is highly configurable, giving you the flexibility you need to apply the ideal configuration to your device.
