If ever there was a quick and easy way to make the Settings app more visually stunning, then the new and free BlurredPreferences jailbreak tweak by iOS developer pookjw would be it.
As you may have already inferred from the name, BlurredPreferences applies an aesthetically pleasing blur effect to the Settings app UI.
In the screenshot examples depicted above, you can see just how the tweak looks with both the native light (left) and dark (right) modes applied to the UI.
While the tweak is purely aesthetic, the eye candy might be worth it for some people. Of course, keep in mind that the blur effect may be more GPI intensive than a plain black or white background, so you might expect to use more battery if when using the Settings app more than the average Joe.
BlurredPreferences doesn’t come with any options to configure and isn’t currently available on any of the major repositories. Instead, the developer hosts the package via GitHub, making it easy to share to the Sileo app (or another package manager) to install manually.
To do that, follow these steps, which are depicted above for your reference:
- Tap on the .deb file from the GitHub page asset list
- Download the package and open it in Sileo or another package manager app
- Install the package with the Get or Install button
Refer to the linked GitHub page above to download for free.
