After a crazy week for Apple that saw the official release of the iPhone 13 & iPhone 13 Pro lineup in addition to the official release of iOS & iPadOS 15, we’re excited to reflect on the fact that there are still tons of jailbreakers out there despite being on older handsets with older versions of iOS & iPadOS.
Jailbreak Apps & Tweaks
These are the latest jailbreak apps and tweaks available for your iPhone or iPad. We save you time by highlighting only the best tweaks.
It was only about a week after Apple released iOS & iPadOS 14.8 with patches for the zero-click exploits that were actively weaponized in the wild and by the Pegasus spyware that iOS developer Mario Cheung released a jailbreak tweak called FORCEDEXIT to address the issue on pwned handsets running affected firmware versions.
Today, Cheung seems to be at it again with a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed EntitlementFix, which allegedly fixes three additional 0-day exploits known to impact jailbreakable versions of Apple’s mobile operating systems.
If you ever find yourself in the type of pinch that necessitates instantaneous note-taking, then we think you’ll be pleased to learn about the likes of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Notey by iOS developer Spartacusdev.
Depending on how much time you spend typing away on your jailbroken iPhone, be it small text messages throughout the day or major word documents once in a while, you just might find solace in add-ons that make typing and text editing less cumbersome.
Apple’s new iOS 15 mobile operating system makes notification banners smaller and less intrusive to the underlying user interface, but if you’re jailbroken on iOS 14 or below, then you aren’t enjoying the same luxury without a jailbreak tweak of some kind.
iOS developer Jez has just released a new jailbreak tweak called minimal that tries to make notifications less intrusive by displaying them as app icons instead of banners in the Status Bar’s time indicator slot on notched handsets.
Apple didn’t introduce always-on display (AOD) functionality with its iPhone 13 lineup this year as many had expected them to do. Fortunately, one advantage to jailbreaking these days is that you can enjoy an always-on display experience on your current iPhone without waiting for Apple to get their bleep together.
In fact, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed AlwaysOnMusic by iOS developer Jez takes a new and rather exciting approach to always-on display functionality for anyone who enjoys using their iPhone for music consumption.
Last week, Apple released iOS & iPadOS 14.8 to the general public with important security patches for a zero-click exploit that could have resulted in arbitrary code execution.
Amid all the recent excitement surrounding jailbreak untether hype and the confirmation that one would be officially released on October 21st, there’s certainly a lot to look forward to. But for right now, it’s business as usual for jailbreak groups like the Odyssey Team.
Jailbreaking has a bad rap for reducing battery life, but it doesn’t have to. A well-tuned jailbroken device should last just as long as a non-jailbroken device, and the community harbors a plethora of different tools for supercharging battery monitoring and performance on pwned handsets.
When you receive notifications on your iPhone or iPad, there are two primary choices you can make: 1) tap on the notification to view its contents in the respective app; or 2) delete and ignore the notification, never to see it again.
Some people do the latter so frequently that they accidentally delete notifications they don’t intend to. As frustrating as this can be, iOS developer Litten has just released a new and free jailbreak tweak called Vē that logs each and every incoming notification you receive so that it can be referenced by the end user later on.
Just this past week, Apple unveiled the spectacular new iPhone 13 lineup and scheduled an official release date for iOS & iPadOS 15 on this coming Monday. Despite the upcoming changes, the jailbreak community continues to hang in there.
Being in control of your iPhone’s display brightness can be incredibly convenient depending on your surrounding circumstances. But I’ve long noticed that even the lowest brightness setting isn’t quite as low as I like it sometimes.
