3D Touch

Quiet lets jailbreakers silence app notifications via the Home Screen

One of the things you can do with a 3D Touch or Haptic Touch-compatible iPhone or iPad is assert a light press or tap-and-hold on individual app icons from the Home Screen to reveal a hidden menu with app-centric options in it. This feature is useful not only because it provides faster access to the most popular features of the app in question, but it can also be a fun way to access them.

While most of these menus sport standard options such as sharing the app, removing the app, or editing the Home Screen, users may also find app-specific options when performing these gestures on apps in which the developer has devoted time or effort into implementing specialized options. Interestingly enough, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Quiet by iOS developer Greg0109 can add another handy feature to these menus: the ability to mute notifications for that specific app.

iGotBlind helps jailbreakers with cluttered Home Screens find their apps

If you have a lot more apps installed on your iPhone than the average Joe, then chances are that you might forget where an app resides on your Home Screen from time to time. iOS & iPadOS 14 aim to improve Home Screen organization with the all-new App Library and the novel ability to hide apps from the Home Screen, but the circumstances are vastly different for those jailbroken in iOS or iPadOS 13 or earlier.

Add a splash of color to the Home Screen’s contextual menus with Color3DIcons

Whether you’re new to or experienced with jailbreaking, one thing that remains true about most users of pwned iPhones is that they love personalizing the native user interface in ways that makes it stand out from a crowd of vanilla handset users.

If you’re moderate when it comes to personalization and you like adding custom colors to existing interfaces as opposed to replacing them with something different outright, then you just might appreciate a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Color3DIcons by iOS developer CydiaGeek.

This tweak lets you clear an app’s cache right from the Home screen

More than five years ago, iOS developer Ryan Petrich released a handy cache-clearing jailbreak tweak for apps on jailbroken iPhones and iPads called CacheClearer, which allows users to delete app caches right from iOS’ native Storage settings page. That same tweak was re-created for iOS 11 last year with the aid of developer Julio Verne, and has now been reincarnated once more for newer versions of iOS by developer alex_png.
