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.
Apple has been working towards a public launch of iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 for weeks now. The goal, of course, to get it out before the wide launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 later this year. To that end, the final Release Candidate has been seeded to developers.
Apple has its sights set on the next major update to all of its popular platforms. Until that happens, though, the company has another minor update in the works. Namely, iOS 14.7.
While Apple is moving towards the future release of iOS 15, the company isn't quite ready to give up on iOS 14 just yet. As a result, the company is still beta testing another minor update for that version of the mobile operating system. And today, there's a new beta.
One of the things iPadOS 15 will do for the iPad is port the iPhone’s handy Low Power Mode feature to Apple’s tablet for when the battery needs preserving.
It’s a shame that it took Apple so long to implement Low Power Mode on iPads out of the box, especially considering that it’s not a particularly complicated or unreasonable feature. But if you’re a jailbreaker, then you needn’t wait for iPadOS 15 to be released later this Fall to enjoy Low Power Mode on the iPad.
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.
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.
We’ve already dove into the likes of Control Center and the Messages app, but this week we’ll be focusing on the Music component of pwned handsets by showcasing some of the best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14’s Now Playing interface.
Getting a little bit bored with the stock Lock Screen experience on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad?
If you answered yes to that question, then we don’t blame you. After all, being jailbroken means that you get to customize parameters of your device such as the Lock Screen to your heart’s content.
Anyone with an iPad knows that the Home Screen’s layout is locked to a specific grid with no adjustability out of the box.
The lone exception to this rule is that you can have widgets on the left side of the screen and apps on the right on the first page. Configuring the Home Screen in this way condenses the app icons. Still, it’s not ideal for the remaining pages.
Apple started the beta process for the next update to its major platforms back in May. And now the company is moving along with the process.
On Tuesday, Apple seeded the second betas of iOS 14.7 and iPadOS 14.7 to registered developers. While there were some minor discoveries made after the first beta was seeded, it looks like this update will be minor in terms of new additions. It's likely that Apple is aiming to smooth out any underlying issues discovered since the public launch of iOS 14.6 earlier this year.
In early June, Apple is going to unveil the next major update to iOS. Before that, though, the company has a relatively minor update to launch.
When Apple released iOS & iPadOS 14 last Fall, one of the first things that stood out to me was that the brand new App Library interface and how it was limited to smaller handsets such as the iPhone and iPod touch. Unfortunately, iPad users would be out of luck if they wanted to try the App Library.
