Pinera1n: A portable checkra1n jailbreak for iPhones that runs on the Linux-based pinephone

Checkra1n is one of the best ways to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad if you have a compatible device (A7-A11) because it utilizes an un-patchable hardware-based bootrom exploit known as checkm8. Perhaps the only notable caveat to checkra1n is that it’s a semi-tethered jailbreak, which means that you need a computer to return to a jailbroken state if you reboot your device for any reason.

Expand the capabilities of your jailbroken iPhone’s Contacts app with Contacts Extended

It goes without saying that the vast majority of iPhone users resort to using the stock Contacts app that Apple pre-installs from the factory for managing their contact list. Not only is it easy to use, but it integrates more deeply with the rest of iOS than most third-party alternatives from the App Store.

Unfortunately, being a pre-installed app typically means that Contacts is somewhat barebones. Apple does this intentionally to make the iPhone easier to use, but if you demand more out of your Contacts app as so many people do, then a new jailbreak tweak called Contacts Extender by iOS developer 0xkuj might be of interest to you.

This jailbreak tweak adds a caller ID toggle button to Control Center

If you ever need to hide your identify from someone that you’re attempting to call from your iPhone, then you can utilize the “Show My Caller ID” option in the Settings app to toggle displaying your caller ID on or off when making outgoing phone calls. On the other hand, finding this option in the Settings app can feel a little like navigating a complex labyrinth.

Well, The Google Phone is finally a reality

With the Pixel line, Google originally set out to craft its own Android smartphone experience around both hardware and software. We used to call it a Google Phone but it would actually take a few more years for the mythical Google Phone, as we envisioned it, to become a reality.
