Tako brings a Priority Hub-like notification experience to jailbroken iOS 14 handsets for free

In 2014, a jailbreak tweak called Priority Hub made waves when it brought Blackberry 10-inspired Lock Screen notification grouping to pwned iPhones. The concept was so popular that releases like Atmos and Axon sought to do the same on newer versions of iOS several years later.

Now that iOS 14 is the latest jailbreakable firmware, it’s unsurprising to see another developer coming out with a modern-day Priority Hub. Xyaman just this week launched a brand-new tweak dubbed Tako that does exactly that.

Anyone who takes advantage of the Shortcuts app to perform automations would be familiar with the notification banner that manliest itself after the automation completes.

Apple intended for this notification to let the user know when the automation finishes running, but if you’re already familiar with what your automation is supposed to do, then sometimes it can come off as redundant information.

Avya improves notification banner privacy when sharing your iPhone’s screen with friends

When your iPhone is locked, iOS will try to mask the contents of your Lock Screen’s incoming notification banners until you authenticate yourself so that onlookers who shouldn’t be snooping on your notifications won’t be able to in the first place.

This is a brilliant privacy feature on Apple’s part, and such a feature may also have uses when your iPhone is unlocked, such as when showing a friend or co-worker your iPhone’s screen to look at a photo or video and an unexpected notification banner pops up.

How to make your Mac notifications stay longer or shorter on screen

macOS notifications

While notifications and alerts on macOS can be useful, they can easily become distracting if they aren't important. A notification that slides in and slides out while you're working, can make you lose your focus. Apple did make some changes to Notifications in the latest macOS Big Sur update, but they can still be annoying at times. Some notifications will slide in and stay on the screen, and will only go away if you click on the close button.

Level up your iPhone’s App Switcher with the Gemini jailbreak tweak

The aforementioned rule of thumb holds true in so many different respects, but one particular element of iOS that I find to be lacking features and intuitive integration is the App Switcher. It’s just… boring.
