Repeating the sad story about how iOS’ volume HUD leaves a lot to be desired feels a lot like beating a dead horse. You’d think Apple would have done something about this concern by now, but as always, it’s the jailbreak community that offers the fastest refuge.
Melior is a volume HUD-centric jailbreak tweak coded by iOS developer SparkDev and designed by Dennis Bednarz that produces one of the cleanest alternatives to iOS’ terrible volume HUD that we’ve seen.
I’ve always been a fan of jailbreak tweaks that bring haptic feedback capabilities to unsupported parts of iOS or apps I use frequently, and with that in mind, I couldn’t help but recommend a new free release called TapticTwitter by iOS developer Chloee.
Just as the name implies, TapticTwitter brings some much-needed haptic feedback to the official Twitter app for iOS.
Having a jailbroken iPhone or iPad means being able to customize it such that it delivers an experience unlike anyone else’s handset, and with a new free jailbreak tweak called Cabello by iOS developer daniel63194, you can do just that.
Cabello compliments your handset’s hardware buttons with customizable effects, such as custom sounds and haptic feedback. Right out of the box, the tweak lets you configure these parameters for the Home button, volume buttons, and the sleep/wake button.
There've been a lot of haptic feedback-based jailbreak tweaks released in my day, but EinsteinVibes by iOS developer LacertosusDeus is one of the first I’ve seen that brings haptic feedback to the stock Calculator app in iOS.
EinstienVibes harnesses the power of Apple’s Taptic Engine to provide Calculator app users with a subtle vibration each time they tap on any of the app’s buttons.
If you enjoy experiencing haptic feedback as you perform specific actions on your iPhone, then you might appreciate a new free jailbreak tweak called VolbrateXI by iOS developer Lacertosus.
VolbrateXI provides you with a small amount of haptic feedback any time you use your handset’s volume buttons. Furthermore, it incorporates several settings so you can tailor the tweak to your personal needs.
If you like haptic feedback, then HapLock is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer smokion1337 that you won’t want to miss.

One of the things we see a lot of in the jailbreak community are tweaks that bring haptic feedback to the iPhone, and a new free release called Erie by iOS developer Sniper_GER follows in these footsteps.
While most tweaks along these lines bring haptic feedback by way of screen taps, Erie takes a different approach by imposing haptic feedback whenever you press a button on your device.
I give credit where credit is due, and I'd have to say Twitter’s official app is a solid way to use Twitter on the iOS platform. Nonetheless, there are still a few ways it could be enhanced, and jailbreak developers are continuously exploring ways to do just that.
With a new free jailbreak tweak entitled HapticTwitter by iOS developer Squ1dd13, you can introduce a bevy of new haptic feedback triggers to the official Twitter app.
Apple’s latest line of MacBook Pros sports an OLED Touch Bar just above the physical keyboard. The point of the Touch Bar is to offer a dynamic, programmable strip that acts as both an extension of your keyboard and an auxiliary input device for select apps on your Mac.
As incredible as the Touch Bar is, one feature that Apple seemed to skim across when designing it was haptic feedback.
For years, the only way you would’ve had a haptic keyboard on your iPhone is if you jailbroke your device. Fortunately, it seems as through the days of yore are over.
A new third-party keyboard just launched in the App Store that appears to be capable of providing satisfying haptic feedback as you type on your iPhone.
