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.
If you’re on iOS 14 and you have a jailbreak at your disposal, then you’re probably wondering how you can get the most out of it. The obvious answer is by installing jailbreak tweaks that are relevant to the end user, but with so many releases launching week after week, keeping up with the best ones isn’t easy unless you’re a robot.
Noticeably absent from the plethora of Home Screen widgets offered out of the box by iOS 14 is one for music and Now Playing content.
Given just how much emphasis Apple places on music consumption with regard to its platforms, this seemed like an odd decision on the company’s part.
You can easily delete home screen pages full of apps on your iPhone or iPad for a tidier, more streamlined look. Follow along with our tutorial as we show you how to rearrange or even delete home screen pages on iPhone and iPad without uninstalling any apps on the device.
One thing that I’ve always liked about having a jailbroken iPhone is that I can get to important things more quickly than I could on a stock handset. This is all because of the different types of shortcuts and extensions that you can have on a device that’s no longer being subjected to Apple’s native software restrictions.
While there’s certainly no shortage of jailbreak tweaks that permit handy shortcuts and functionality from almost anywhere in iOS, those who consider themselves to be power users may have something to gain from the likes of a newly released jailbreak tweak called AppEditor by iOS developer @CrazyMind90.
One of the flagship features of iOS 14 was the ability to add widgets directly to the Home Screen alongside your app icons.
This is something that iPhone users have wanted to do for a very long time, and while Apple certainly did wonders to make it a reality, they also kept the number of native widgets to a minimum.
Jailbreakers, whether they use themes or not, tend to be of the mindset that device customization should be a human right. Apple seems to disagree; but I digress.
One way jailbreakers customize their handsets is by changing their Home Screen’s app icon layout. Unfortunately, Apple designed the Home Screen so that app icons would snap into place without the ability to leave spaces in between app icons.
On any stock iPhone or iPad, swiping left or right on the Home Screen results in a paging effect as you move from one page to the next. This paging animation automatically locks your focus to the next or previous page of app icons, dependent on which way you swiped.
Some people like the paging animation, but it’s something that has been around since the dawn of the iPhone. If you’d prefer something a little different, then we might suggest checking out a new and free jailbreak tweak release called Flowing by iOS developer TitanD3v.
