One of the most anxiety-inducing things that you might experience as a jailbreaker is the inevitable red notification badge on the Settings app icon denoting a pending software update.
If you go overboard on jailbreak tweak installations like I do sometimes, then it may serve you well to keep a tally of how many you have installed at any given time.
Doing this manually would be a painstaking and tedious process, but with the help of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak subtly named TweakCount by iOS developer LacertosusDeus, your iPhone can do it for you automatically.
The Settings app is something that many iPhone users will visit multiple times a day, whether it’s for changing a Wi-Fi network, toggling a feature on or off, or merely viewing a device’s hardware and software information. If you’re jailbroken, then you might visit the Settings app even more frequently to customize your favorite jailbreak tweaks.
Regardless of how you use the Settings app at any given point in time, one thing is certain: not a lot has changed over the years and the app’s interface continues to look as bland as it always has. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
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.
When you’re jailbroken, it can be hard to resist the temptation to install a bunch of jailbreak tweaks that augment your user experience. There’s nothing wrong with that, but you’ll quickly come to the realization that the surge of tweak installations adds superfluous preference panes to the Settings app and makes you do more scrolling to get where you’re trying to go.
Any and all jailbreakers who might be in the market to add a splash of paint to the otherwise boring Settings app user interface should immediately turn their attention to a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called April by iOS developer Luki134.
Not to be confused with the April jailbreak tweak we showed you last year for customizing the Lock Screen, this April jailbreak tweak focuses primarily on allowing the user to customize the look and feel of the Settings app via various configurable parameters.
Has the Control Center on your iPhone ever gotten in the way? If you’re playing a game or using an app where you have to tap or swipe on the top right, then you know what I mean. Sometimes you open the Control Center by mistake. And if you’re a new iPhone user, this can be especially aggravating.
While the iPhone Control Center is a handy tool, you don’t always need it “right there”. But luckily there’s one small setting that can keep it where it belongs while you’re using your apps. This means, no more accidental Control Center invasions during your game or app time.
Here’s how to turn off your iPhone Control Center when you’re using apps.
Your Apple TV, just like iPhone and Mac, includes features to improve the experience for those with visual or audio impairments. These accessibility settings can be helpful or necessary to using your Apple TV.
So if you’ve just purchased an Apple TV for yourself or a loved one or are considering it and want to know the available accessibility options, you’ve come to the right spot. Here, we’ll go over the settings and features you can adjust to enjoy your Apple TV.
As an Apple TV owner, you know that you receive audio feedback as you navigate the screen and apps. You hear those click sounds with every action you take using your Siri remote. But not everyone is fond of that click, click, click. Did you know you can turn those sounds off?
With the simple flip of a setting you can disable the click sounds on your Apple TV, here’s how.
When you first set up your Apple TV, you pick the display language and region format. But what if you need to change this for some reason? For example, maybe you have a guest who’ll be using your Apple TV in another dialect. Or, maybe you're moving to a new locale.
Luckily, it’s easy to change the language or region on your Apple TV after setup, here’s how.
It seems like we put so much effort into block things like pop-ups and ads when we’re browsing the web that we forget about sites that actually use pop-ups for good reason. It could be a shopping site where you get a confirmation, a CMS where you can use tools, or a social site where you log in.
In Safari, you can allow pop-ups globally, and on Mac, you can allow them just for those specific sites you want. Here’s how to allow pop-ups in Safari on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
iOS is a far cry from being an ugly mobile operating system, but there’s certainly a bit of wiggle room for Apple to improve on it. Unfortunately, first party redesigns from Apple can be few and far in between.
Amid those circumstances, it’s not uncommon for third parties to develop concepts for jailbreak tweaks or themes that make an interface more aesthetically pleasing than it comes out of the box.
