Owners of jailbroken iPhones who are looking for ways to customize the aesthetics of their native Phone app can now call upon the help of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Buzz by iOS developer Sirius24 to do just that.
As shown in the screenshot examples above, Buzz lets you colorize a plethora of Phone app user interface elements, including those appearing in the Favorites tab, the Recents tab, the Keypad tab, the Contacts tab, and more.
When you receive a phone call from your locked iPhone, iOS automatically directs you to a ‘slide to answer’ interface with no obvious way of dismissing the phone call. You can press the side button a couple of times to dismiss the call, but not everyone knows this, and it this seems like a user interface shortcoming on Apple’s part.
Given the circumstances described above, we’re especially pleased to see the release of a new jailbreak tweak called LetMeDecline by iOS developer P2Kdev. As depicted in the before and after screenshot examples above, this tweak replaces the ‘slide to answer’ bar with dedicated Decline and Answer buttons, making it easier to get the annoying full-screen incoming call interface out of your way.
Roman numerals appear to be making a comeback in popularity, and for those who demand classiness from everything they touch, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Just last week, we showed you a jailbreak tweak that adjusted the Status Bar time to appear as roman numerals instead of standard numbers. But with a newly released and free add-on called RomanPad (Beta) by iOS developer Simalary, you can enjoy a similar experience on any number pad in iOS, including the passcode entry screen and the Phone app’s dial pad.
If you ever enter phone numbers manually into the iPhone’s native Phone app when placing calls, then you might find that the green call button at the bottom of the app is more challenging to reach one-handed than it needs to be.
iOS developer iCraze identified the setback with this and has released a new jailbreak tweak dubbed LongerCallButton to address it.
Your iPhone displays the phone number of incoming and outgoing calls, apart from certain circumstances in which that number is privatized. But if you’re like me and wish you could see more about a caller than just the phone number at first glance, then you’ll probably come to appreciate a jailbreak tweak called PhoneCaller by iOS developer Osama.
As shown in the screenshot examples above, PhoneCaller works by integrating with the popular TrueCaller app to fetch more detailed caller ID information for both incoming and outgoing phone calls. As you’ll notice, it shows the caller’s first and last name in addition to any relevant photos of that person, where applicable.
The House of Representatives today took a major step toward cracking down on illegal robocalls by approving a new act aimed at boosting anti-robocalling technology.
The Recents tab found in the iPhone’s native Phone app is meant to display a running history of your incoming and outgoing phone call activity, making it easier for you to call someone back or reference a phone number if you ever needed to. Sadly, the timestamps for older phone calls tend to become less descriptive over time, showing only the date and not the timeframe.
Thankfully, a new free jailbreak tweak called ExactTimePhone by iOS developer gilshahar7 can fix this problem. As shown in the before and after screenshot examples above, this tweak makes even your oldest phone history items show a timestamp in addition to the date that it transpired.
iOS 13 brought out a new setting to protect Apple customers from unwanted calls and spammers by automatically sending any calls from unknown people straight to voicemail.
Spam calls are annoying, and annoyingly abundant. But Apple is making a change to the phone app that aims to help with that.
Have you ever tried to make plans or just chat with a group of people over text? It can get confusing and opinions can easily get lost. Instead, try starting a conference call to get everyone on the same page, in the same conversation, and at the same time.
Depending on your mobile carrier, you can have up to five people on your call. To help you out, here’s how to start a conference call on iPhone.
