One of the things Apple doesn’t seem to be particularly creative with in terms of the iPhone is its animations. Many competing handsets, especially those running the Android operating system, have continuously inspired animation-centric jailbreak tweaks intended to port more interesting animations to the iOS platform.
Check out the most comprehensive jailbreaking coverage on the internet, including the latest news, apps, tweaks, and detailed tutorials about everything jailbreak.
Looking to add some novelty to your jailbroken iPhone or iPad? If so, then you may want to turn your attention to a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed Zinnia by iOS developer Aspen.
Zinnia complements various elements of the Lock Screen on your iPhone or iPad with neon effects. Said effects will be applied to things like the Lock Screen’s clock and the newly-added unlock button, the latter of which replaces the native Home Bar.
As many iPhone owners already know, the iOS operating system provides users with a feature called Auto Lock that, when configured by the end user, can automatically lock the handset after a pre-defined amount of idle time. In other words, when your handset isn’t being actively used, it goes to sleep to save power and to secure your important data.
Auto Lock takes effect in most circumstances, however there are a few exemptions in which the feature gets overridden, such as during media (video) playback and while playing certain games. Some users like this because of its convenience, while others find it to be a concern both in terms of battery life and data security.
The iOS and iPadOS platforms offer one heck of a user experience, so long as the device is intended for just one user. One thing that’s obviously missing, however, is a guest mode or multi-user experience, much like the ones you’d come to expect on any Mac or Windows PC.
The concept of a guest mode-style user experience for iPhones and iPads isn’t new, and has manifested itself in the form of various jailbreak tweak releases over the years, but one of the latest attempts to create this type of user experience stems from a new release dubbed Restriction by iOS developers SouthernGirlWhoCode and MeBlackHatof the TitanD3v team.
When you find yourself a bit curious as to what time it is, you might take a quick glance at your iPhone’s Lock Screen to take advantage of the massive time display iOS shows within the top half of the screen. It works, but we wouldn’t go out of our way to say it’s particularly beautiful.
If you’re interested in something a bit more eye-catching, and perhaps even more functional by way of the kind of information that gets displayed, then we’d advise checking out a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Klean by iOS developer Ali Maulana.
For some people, the Lock Screen is nothing more than a barrier that resides between the user and the apps on their device. For others, it’s the first interface you see every time you pick up your iPhone. Regardless of which camp you side with, wouldn’t you prefer to look at a more aesthetically pleasing Lock Screen design?
Heartlines is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Litten that provides three new Lock Screen styles for the iOS platform, and beyond that, it offers a plethora of configuration options that allow users to get the most out of the first interface they see every time they pick up their handset. How’s that for awesome?
If you ever want to call or text a contact on your iPhone, then you’d need to unlock your handset and visit the Contacts or Phone app to do so. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could skip that step entirely and get right to it?
If you answered yes to the question above, then you might enjoy the likes of a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed LS Contacts by iOS developer 0xkuj. Just as the tweak’s rather conspicuous name implies, LS Contacts can be used to put shortcuts to specific contacts directly on your Lock Screen for quicker access in a pinch.
If you’re the type of person who likes to follow along with song lyrics while listening to music, then you might find that the iOS platform isn’t quite as supportive of your needs out of the box as it could be.
Luckily, that’s what we have the jailbreak community for, and there’s a newly released and free jailbreak tweak in town dubbed Lyricize by iOS developer level3tjg that puts song lyrics directly on the Lock Screen to make following along with your favorite music easier.
Jailbreakers that are looking to get the most out of their pwned handsets’ Lock screens would be doing themselves a huge favor by checking out the likes of a newly released and free-to-download jailbreak tweak dubbed April by iOS developer DaydreamDev.
April is a new all-in-one Lock screen customization tweak that provides users with everything they need to achieve the custom aesthetics they never knew they needed. Whether you’re trying to change up the Lock screen’s date and time display, tinker with the Now Playing interface, or customize the Quick Actions, this tweak’s for you.
First released back in 2014, Priority Hub was perhaps one of the most popular notification-centric jailbreak tweaks of all time. It ported BlackBerry 10’s grouped notifications feature to the iOS Lock screen, allowing users to filter missed notifications on a per-app basis.
As time went on, developers have re-made Priority Hub for newer iterations of iOS, and now that both iOS 11 and 12 are jailbreakable, it only seems just that a proper remake should be released for those firmware versions. With that in mind, we’re excited to show you a new free jailbreak tweak release called Axon by iOS developer Nepeta.
A plethora of Android smartphones on the market today support ‘always-on-display’ functionality in which the background remains dark, but the time and date appear in legible white font for your convenience.
Until now, you couldn’t experience this effect on an Apple handset, but a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Semperon by iOS developer LaughingQuoll mimics this functionality on any jailbroken iPhone or iPad running iOS 11.
If you’re worried that someone might be trying to obtain unauthorized access to your iOS device when you aren’t looking, then you might find a new free jailbreak tweak called CatchaThief by iOS developer Jake James useful.
Once installed, CatchaThief harnesses your handset’s front-facing camera to snap a picture whenever someone enters your passcode incorrectly, allowing you to see anyone that might be trying to use your device without your permission.
