Glow is Elias Limneos’ take on an always-on display for jailbroken iPhones

Ever since Apple first started integrating OLED display on its iPhones, starting with the iPhone X in 2017, we’ve witnessed a steady increase in the number of jailbreak tweaks attempting to bring a true always-on display experience to the platform. One of the latest attempts comes by way of respected veteran tweak developer Elias Limneos and has been aptly named Glow.

Like other always-on display tweaks before it, Glow takes full advantage of the OLED display in Apple’s high-end handsets to express true darks for the background. It simultaneously displays pertinent details such as the date, time, and battery level, along an indicator to let you know whether you’ve got any missed notifications. Best of all, it does all of this while consuming as little power as possible.

ScreenSafe protects your iPhone’s display from burn-in with screensavers

Handsets equipped with OLED displays are particularly adept at displaying high-contrast colors due to the true blacks they exhibit, especially when compared to handsets sporting traditional LCD displays. On the other hand, OLED displays are also notorious for screen burn-in issues, and that’s where screensavers come in.

Modern iPhones such as the iPhone X, XS, and 11 Pro (including their larger counterparts) come standard with OLED displays, and while Apple has already done plenty to mitigate screen burn-in with these devices, they haven’t yet adopted screensavers on the iOS platform. With that in mind, a new jailbreak tweak release called ScreenSafe by iOS developer Kushy comes off as particularly interesting.
