Among several of my favorite things to do with a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, creating shortcuts to my most-used apps and features ranks high on my list.
Do you have such a useful app on your iPhone that you want to have its app icon on multiple Home Screens? In the past, you could only have an app either on the Dock or any one of the Home Screens. But thanks to a hidden trick in iOS 15, you can create app icons of the same app on the Dock and other Home Screens. You can even have the same app multiple times on the same Home Screen! Let us show you how.
The process of deleting apps from your iPhone or iPad’s Home Screen has changed slightly over the years, as the user must now navigate a Haptic Touch menu before entering ‘jiggle’ mode to reveal the app deletion buttons.
While I’ve always enjoyed having a background behind my iPhone’s Home Screen Dock, the fact remains that there are a substantial number of jailbreakers that partake in even more extreme forms of minimalism than me.
Starting with iPadOS 15, iPad users can do a whole lot more with their Home Screens than they could in iPadOS 14. That’s because Apple provided users with a more advanced Home Screen editing interface.
iOS 15 added a new feature that lets iPhone users rearrange their existing Home Screen pages to their heart’s content. While iOS 14 users can access the same editing interface from their Home Screen, they’ll notice that the rearrangement feature is notably missing.
Google's Gmail widget now displays actual emails and senders on your home screen. It's much better than the previous version, but actual functionality remains limited due to Apple's rules guiding widget development on iOS and iPadOS platforms.
If your iPhone or iPad widgets reset to their default settings after restoring your device from a backup, feel free to chalk that up to an iOS bug that Apple is aware of.
There are so many jailbreak tweaks out there in addition to all the new releases we cover every day that it can be challenging for new jailbreakers to know exactly where they should start. Having said that, it’s one of our top priorities here at iDownloadBlog to assist our readers with tweak discovery. We curate specialized lists like the one you’re reading now to help shine the spotlight on worthwhile releases that you may find interesting.
In this week’s addition to our rolling series that homes in on the best jailbreak tweaks for specific facets of iOS 14, we’ll focus on the wallpaper; everywhere it might appear. The wallpaper is the first thing users see when using their device, and it’s a personal choice for the end user to make. Given these circumstances, it’s easy to see why someone would want the best wallpaper user experience they can get, and a jailbreak can help with that.
The introduction of the App Library in iOS 14 made Home Screen folders a moot point for many iPhone users. Still, some continue to use folders to organize app icons on the Home Screen, even in a post-App Library world.
Recognizing that this niche still exists, iOS developer Sirius24 released a new jailbreak tweak dubbed FolderPlus to provide users with a substantial amount of folder-centric customization that simply can’t be achieved on stock handsets.
Privacy is a valuable thing, and while iPhones can be secured with a passcode or biometric authentication such as Face ID or Touch ID, many still feel like Apple could do more to improve user privacy — especially for when someone manages to get ahold of your passcode or you hand your unlocked device to another person for one reason or another.
When Apple went full-on anti-skeuomorphic starting with iOS 7, one of the things they did away with was the icon shadows on the Home Screen.
With some of the newer iterations of iOS moving away from total flatness, it seems like a better time than ever to have Home Screen app icon shadows once more. This is especially the case if you’re using a theme that has any degree of app icon realism.
