Jailbreak tweaks of the week: PinAnim, Voloc, & more…

As we move into September, Apple is preparing to announce the iPhone 14 lineup and release iOS 16 to the general public. Even so, the jailbreak community presses onward as we continue to wait for an iOS & iPadOS 15 jailbreak to be released.

In today’s roundup, we will discuss the latest jailbreak tweak releases and jailbreak-centric news posts that we shared over the course of this past week, spanning Monday, August 29th to Sunday, September 4th.

As always, we’re going to start today’s piece with a discussion about our favorite releases first and then wrap things up with an outline of everything else afterward. So let’s jump right into the good stuff below.

Our favorite releases this week

PinAnim – FREE

PinAnim is a slick new jailbreak tweak that animates the Lock Screen’s passcode entry pin dots every time you enter a new digit.

The tweak is both good looking and highly configurable, as well as being an original idea that we can’t help but commend the developer for coming up with.

You can find out more about PinAnim and how it works in our full review post.

Voloc – FREE

If you’re into colorizing things, then you should feel right at home with the Voloc jailbreak tweak since it allows you to colorize your handset’s volume HUD however you like.

The tweak supports two different color tones — one for the background of the volume HUD and another for the foreground.

You can learn everything you need to know about the new Voloc jailbreak tweak in our full review post.
