NotLiveText brings iOS 15’s Live Text feature to the Photos app on jailbroken iOS 14 handsets

Note-taking is a useful skill, but let’s admit it, we’ve all been in some type of time-related pinch in which it was more convenient to simply launch the Camera app and take a picture of something with text on it than it would have been to launch the Notes app and try to type out all the text verbatim. Business cards and street-side advertisements are both great examples.

Substia upgrades iOS’ text replacement feature, making it more accessible

Shortcuts that help you do things with less effort can be a godsend, especially when it comes to being productive on a small and often cramped device like an iPhone.

That’s one of the reasons why I enjoy taking full advantage of iOS’ Text Replacement feature whenever I can. The only problem with it is that you’ll find yourself inconveniently navigating to Settings → General → Keyboard → Text Replacement to manage (add or remove) your text shortcuts.

Loupe brings the magnifying glass back to iOS 14’s text editing experience

Anyone that does any capacity of text editing on their iPhone, whether it’s writing a document in Microsoft Word, modifying something drafted out in the Messages app’s text field, or some other form of the matter, may have noticed that the magnifying glass no longer appears when moving the cursor somewhere specific in the body of text.

Apple made this change because you can now pan the cursor across your body of text by tapping and dragging on the keyboard. But that hasn’t stopped a growing number of nostalgic iPhone users from wishing that the classic magnifying glass was still a thing. Said nostalgia is only amplified by the fact that the magnifying glass still exists on the iPad in the latest versions of iPadOS 14.

This tweak hides iOS 14’s Paste Tips when pasting content from another app

Upon updating to iOS or iPadOS 14, you probably noticed that the operating system automatically displays a prompt at the top of the screen whenever you paste something into an app that you copied or cut from a different app. For this piece, we’ll refer to those prompts as Paste Tips.

Some people enjoy the Paste Tips because it alerts the user to potentially unwanted clipboard access, but others may find it to be somewhat of a nuisance, especially if they do a lot of copying or cutting and pasting. Those in the latter boat may appreciate a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed DisablePasteTips by iOS developer Netskao.

CopyKey makes it easier for jailbreakers to paste text via the keyboard

Anyone who does even the least amount of text editing knows just how important the ability to copy, cut, and paste text is. Unfortunately, the process tends to be cumbersome and time consuming on the iPhone.

Those taking advantage of a jailbreak, including the recently updated unc0ver tool with respect to iOS 14, are likely to appreciate the convenience and satisfaction of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed CopyKey by iOS developer Chr1s.

How to wrap text in Numbers to display all your data

Wrap Text in Cell on iPad

If you use text in your Numbers sheets, there may have been a time where that text was hidden by the cell to the right. And while you can select the cell and read the text at the bottom in Numbers on Mac, this isn’t always convenient. Plus, this isn’t an option in Numbers on iPhone or iPad.

Here, we’ll show you how to wrap the text in a cell in your spreadsheets. You can apply this formatting to a single cell, group of cells, column, and row. This will increase the height of the cell to display all text within it. But you if you resize the column or row containing the cell, the text will adjust.
