With a new and free jailbreak tweak release dubbed FloatingDockXVI by iOS developer Ethan Whited, you can experience a floating iPad-inspired Home Screen Dock experience with several other Dock-centric configurations on your jailbroken iPhone running iOS 15 or 16.
As depicted in the screenshot examples above, you can see a few of the ways that FloatingDockXVI enhances the Dock. From adding a recently-used app space to removing the Dock’s background, there are a lot of features for users to enjoy.
Once installed, FloatingDockXVI adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users can configure a bevy of options to their liking:
Things you can do here include:
- Toggling FloatingDockXVI on or off on demand
- Hiding or showing the Dock background
- Choosing what appears in the ‘extra’ space of the Dock:
- Recently used apps
- App Library shortcut
- Both of the above
- None of the above
We like the way this tweak adds some of the iPad’s Dock features to the iPhone because it seems like it would’ve been a good opportunity to expand on the iPhone’s Home Screen-centric capabilities.
Sadly, Apple missed that mark, so we instead have Ethan Whited to thank for bringing it to us.
If you’re interested in trying FloatingDockXVI for yourself on your jailbroken iOS 15 or 16 device, then you can download the tweak for free from the Havoc repository via your favorite package manager app.
