Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Amēlija, Speedy, Substia, & more…

With Apple having just recently announced iOS & iPadOS 15, we can finally see what to expect from Apple’s upcoming iterations of its mobile operating systems.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the jailbreak community is taking note. We’ve already shown you 15 things that iOS & iPadOS 15 ‘borrowed’ from the jailbreak scene, and it’s likely we’ll soon best witness to jailbreak tweaks that retroactively port features from the upcoming update to older jailbroken versions of iOS and iPadOS.

Add neat blur effects to your jailbroken iPhone’s wallpaper with Amēlija

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.

Some of the best jailbreak tweaks for the iOS 14 Home Screen

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.

New AltStore beta available with preliminary support for side-loading apps on iOS 15

Last week’s WWDC 2021 Keynote address was chock-full of goodies for iPhone and iPad users, including iOS & iPadOS 15 and the new features they promise for these types of devices.

Developers and beta testers alike rushed to be among the first to download and install the iOS & iPadOS 15 betas after the Keynote ended. Shortly after, we learned that the popular AltStore side-loading platform didn’t work on iOS & iPadOS 15 and that it would necessitate an update to work with Apple’s upcoming operating systems.

Invoke a fake notification to get out of a pinch with Breezy

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.
