iDownloadBlog continues its ongoing pursuit this week to help its readers with jailbreak tweak discovery, this time shifting focus to those tweaks that augment iOS 14’s 3D Touch/Haptic Touch capabilities.
Whenever you’re curious about certain statistics involving your iPhone, be it battery health, current internet speed, or your current Wi-Fi network, much of this information can be found in the Settings app.
Whether you’re a power user or a developer and advanced features matter to you more than the average Joe, a free jailbreak tweak dubbed 3Developer by iOS developer hearsedev could prove to be rather a handy add-on for you.
There comes a time when almost every iPhone or iPad owner comes to realize that they want to do partake in Spring cleaning on their handset’s Home Screen.
Apple did something right when they made it possible for users to use a Haptic Touch/3D Touch gesture on individual Home Screen app icons to reveal hidden menus.
It’s typically an easy task to remove a notification badge from an app — merely open the app in question and acknowledge the notification. In some instances, however, the process isn’t quite as cut and dry. The Setting app, for example, likes to display a notification badge when there are pending software updates for your handset.
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.
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.
Very few applications actually allow users to log in with several user accounts at one time – Apollo for Reddit and the official Twitter app are two general exceptions to this rule of thumb, but there are certainly others.
If you’re one of many who find the process of adding apps to folders on the iPhone’s Home Screen to be a cumbersome and tedious process, then we think you’re going to have a lot of fun with the likes of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed AddToFolder by iOS developer AnthoPak.
If you’re an iPhone or iPad owner, then it’s likely you know about the Long Press feature, also known as 3D touch or Press and Hold. This handy way of taking care of quick actions requires you to just touch and hold an app icon on your screen to pull up a list of actions you can perform.
The thing is, many people just don’t take advantage of this extremely useful feature. Maybe you’re a new iOS user and aren’t familiar with all it can do or maybe you simply forget it exists. Either way, you can take care of some tasks pretty quickly with a long press because it eliminates the need to open and navigate the app to do what you want.
So, if you’re ready to see how long presses can increase your productivity and save you time, let’s go!
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.
