Wallpapers are a highly personal choice for customizing the look of your Home Screen, but in many cases, images used as wallpapers can make the Home Screen look too busy with all the app icons overlapping everything.
One way to deal with this concern is to apply a blur to said wallpaper image — either as subtle or as powerful as you’d like. You can do this with photo manipulation software before setting an image as your wallpaper on a stock device, or if you’re jailbroken, you can do it directly on the device on the fly. As for how, that’s what we’re about to show you.
Jailbreakers often experience an itch to customize their handset’s user interface. After all, who could blame them? Having a pwned device means you can customize things well beyond the stock parameters put in place by Apple out of the box.
One thing we commonly see customized by the end user on jailbroken handsets is the notification interface — namely the banners.
The Settings app hasn’t changed much over the years, prompting the jailbreak community to preempt Apple time and time again.
The latest of such efforts comes by way of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called ModernStyleSettings by iOS developer Netskao.
We’ve been on a mission to showcase some the best jailbreak tweaks for different areas of the iOS & iPadOS 14 mobile operating systems for the past several weeks, and we’ve already discussed our favorites for things like Control Center, the Messages app, and the Now Playing interface.
But there’s still a lot more to cover, and that’s why this time we’ll be taking a closer look at some of the best jailbreak tweaks for the Home Screen on iOS & iPadOS 14.
Shortcuts that help you do things with less effort can be a godsend, especially when it comes to being productive on a small and often cramped device like an iPhone.
That’s one of the reasons why I enjoy taking full advantage of iOS’ Text Replacement feature whenever I can. The only problem with it is that you’ll find yourself inconveniently navigating to Settings → General → Keyboard → Text Replacement to manage (add or remove) your text shortcuts.
All iPhones incorporate a magnifier interface that can enlarge things for the hard at seeing. It tends to be useful for getting a closer look at fine text on a sheet of paper such as a book or shopping receipt.
In iOS 14 and earlier, the Magnifier interface can be summoned via accessibility using Control Center or a manually planted Home Screen icon. However starting with iOS 15, the Magnifier interface debuts as a standalone app on the Home Screen right out of the box.
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.
Whether you’re in the mood to delete apps because you need more storage space or because you feel like you have too many unused apps, the fact remains that it can be a tedious and time consuming process to sort through your apps and delete the ones you don’t want anymore.
With so much happening in the jailbreak world today, it can be a challenge to keep up with everything.
That’s why we curate a weekly roundup post just like this one, to help our readers keep up with all the latest jailbreak tweak releases and news developments that they may have missed throughout the week.
Most people can relate to being involved in one of those awkward social situations where they just can’t wait to get up and leave, but they don’t have a good reason to and don’t want to come off as rude.
Having said that, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Breezy by titand3v can offer assistance in this department, as it lets you create fake, yet convincing notifications that can make it look like you’re needed somewhere else.
If you’re looking to accomplish a custom Home Screen setup on your iPhone or iPad, then your typical options include shifting app icons to different pages or organizing them into folders. You’d be hard-pressed to customize much else, as Apple doesn’t offer many other options.
This apparent shortcoming has left the jailbreak community to do what it does best: break down Apple’s unfortunate customizability barriers by offering end users a slew of options for achieving unique Home Screen aesthetics that no one else will have – especially not those using stock, non-jailbroken handsets.
The iPhone’s native Lock Screen does exactly what it was designed to do – that is, provide a secure layer between the user and your handset’s operating system where you need to authenticate yourself to move forward.
But if you’re anything like half of iPhone users in existence today, then you might find yourself getting somewhat bored with the static Lock Screen appearance that the iOS platform has exhibited for many years now.
Continuing our unrelenting coverage of jailbreak tweak releases and pwnage news at iDownloadBlog, we’re coming back at you this week with yet another addition to our new micro series of posts showcasing some of the best jailbreak tweaks for personalizing a particular component of the iOS 14 mobile operating system.
