Of the multitude of different things I use on my iPhone on a daily basis, the Calculator and Phone apps are definitely high on that list.
But sometimes life catches us in a pinch, and that’s why having the ability to access these tools without unlocking our iPhones and finding and launching the Calculator or Phone apps can come in handy.
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.
iPhone owners have been begging Apple to implement some sort of Android-style keyboard haptic feedback for as long as I can remember.
Fast forward to the post-Taptic Engine world we live in today, and we still don’t have the option to enable keyboard haptic feedback on stock iPhones.
Getting to your iPhone or iPad’s UDID (unique device identifier) is more work than it should be. Ordinary users can connect their device to a computer or visit a specialized website to view their handset’s UDID. Jailbreakers have the option find their UDID in their favorite package manager.
But even after finding it, there’s sometimes a need to copy and paste the UDID elsewhere, such as for certain jailbreak tweak activations and other fringe scenarios.
When designing the Camera app for the iPhone, Apple tried to make the user interface as easy to use as possible.
On one hand, the Camera app interface echoes simplicity in its design principles. On the other, it can be aesthetically displeasing given the substantial amount of black barring at the top and bottom of the interface.
Whether you’re a graphic designer trying to make better use of the tools on your mobile handset or you’re a themer trying to get an exact color code from an image in your screen to make things match better, we’re excited to share a jailbreak tweak with you that could make your like so much easier.
Enter Palette, a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by TitanD3v that makes picking colors, gathering color codes, and managing color collecting easier than you could ever imagine on an iPhone or iPad.
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.
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.
Jailbreakers often experience an itch to customize their handset’s user interface. After all, who could blame them? Having a pwned device means you can customize things well beyond the stock parameters put in place by Apple out of the box.
One thing we commonly see customized by the end user on jailbroken handsets is the notification interface — namely the banners.
The Settings app hasn’t changed much over the years, prompting the jailbreak community to preempt Apple time and time again.
The latest of such efforts comes by way of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called ModernStyleSettings by iOS developer Netskao.
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.
Shortcuts that help you do things with less effort can be a godsend, especially when it comes to being productive on a small and often cramped device like an iPhone.
That’s one of the reasons why I enjoy taking full advantage of iOS’ Text Replacement feature whenever I can. The only problem with it is that you’ll find yourself inconveniently navigating to Settings → General → Keyboard → Text Replacement to manage (add or remove) your text shortcuts.
