iOS’ native alert system hasn’t changed much in recent years, but one major convenience of jailbreaking is that users can install third-party add-ons to change the look and behavior of almost anything they desire.
At the end of 2019, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Accent that could have been used to tint various facets of the iOS or iPadOS user interface.
It provided users with a pre-defined list of colors that users could pick from to accomplish this, and while the tweak worked fabulously, the list of colors was somewhat constrained. That’s why this new release is particularly exciting.
Many jailbreakers are perfectly fine with the way their iPhone functions, but they simply want to make it look different than it does out of the box. If that sounds like you, then you might enjoy using a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Vide by iOS developer Xyaman.
If there’s one thing that almost every jailbreaker likes to do after they learn that they’re free from Apple’s restrictive clutch, it’s giving the iOS user interface a fresh coat of paint.
In many cases, this means tinting the operating system with your favorite color scheme, or changing the color of smaller components of the user interface that you don’t like as they come out of the box. This includes the iPhone’s keyboard, and if you’re interested in giving the keyboard a new splash of color, then a jailbreak tweak called KBColor by iOS developer Mostafa can provide enough customization to help you get the job done.
As a chronic Dark Mode user on my iPhones and iPads, I’ve grown accustomed to displays that don’t sear my eyes out of their sockets when I operate my mobile device. In essence, I like the interface to be as dark as it possibly can be, even if Apple doesn’t want it to be.
Upon tapping the play button for a video in Safari or the Photos app, iOS automatically loads the video in its native media player interface. This media player doesn’t apply to all apps, such as those with proprietary alternatives like the official YouTube app, but it applies almost everywhere else.
Jailbreakers who have an interest in customizing iOS’ default media player are likely to show an interest in a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed CustoMedia by iOS developer gamehacker080, as it permits the end user to not only colorize the native media player, but also to adjust its behavior in several different ways.
Every app tends to have its own unique color scheme. But if you’d like to take things to the next level and you have a jailbroken handset at your disposal, then the jailbreak tweak we’re going show you might be of interest.
Enter Apps Colour Changer, a new and free extension for pwned handsets by iOS developer Lillie that lets the end user colorize various apps to their liking.
Have you ever glanced at someone else’s Android 12 device and thought to yourself, “I wish my iPhone’s Lock Screen looked that cool?”
If you answered yes, then you might be excited to learn that there’s a new jailbreak tweak for that.
When Apple went full-on anti-skeuomorphic starting with iOS 7, one of the things they did away with was the icon shadows on the Home Screen.
With some of the newer iterations of iOS moving away from total flatness, it seems like a better time than ever to have Home Screen app icon shadows once more. This is especially the case if you’re using a theme that has any degree of app icon realism.
Apple is regarded as one of the most influential players in the music industry — not only because of what iTunes once was, but also because of the creation of Apple Music and its seamless integration with the company’s expansive mobile device and desktop computer offerings.
Given just how much Apple seems to have invested in the music industry, it’s somewhat curious as to why the Now Playing interface on iPhones and iPads hasn’t changed much over the years. In fact, many are now calling on Apple to offer some sort of redesign after a seemingly stagnant UI that changes so little over time.
Mac users who’ve always secretly wished that their iPhone’s Lock Screen looked and felt more like their Mac’s Lock Screen, are in luck — especially if they’ve got a jailbroken iPhone at their disposal.
MacPass is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer ETHN that brings the coveted macOS Lock Screen user experience to pwned handsets.
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.
