One of the many things that iPhone and iPad users are concern about are the facts they might break their power and home buttons. These buttons are important than anything else because if something goes wrong, they can save your life. For example, if the device is put into recovery mode, you will need the power button to turn it back on or else the device become useless until you install third-party software on a computer to fix it.
It’s nearly pointless to enter password manually when your iPhone or iPad is Touch ID built-in. Although most applications will only require you to enter your password once or whenever you reinstall the app, reset it, or did an update. Not to mention after a period of time some users won’t be able to remember their password and the process of retrieving it back might be a hassle.
To make it easier for iPhone and iPad owners with Touch ID, there is a jailbreak tweak called iTouchSecure for iOS 9 that allows you to use your Touch ID instead of password in most applications, including third-part apps like Facebook, Chrome, Twitter, and many other.
When it comes to customizing a jailbroken device, there are many different options. But we have to admit that Springtomize 3 by Filippo Biga would always be part of our recommendation. This is the ultimate customization tweak that allows users to make changes across their iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Normally, you won’t be able to customize your iOS device after a jailbreak, yet, because you would need to get a few tweaks that let you do so. While most tweaks will only provide a few settings and functionality to users, Springtomize 3 include everything in one package and all the customization settings are available in one app.
Jailbroken users will hardly see Cydia Substrate getting updated unless a new jailbreak utility come out. Saurik tends to update it so that developers can release a new version to their jailbreak tweaks that support the new jailbroken firmware. Today was one of the many exceptions, due to bugs report and such, Cydia Substrate has been updated to version 0.9.6110.
Specifically, the update brings fixes for corrupt extensions, often used by the developer for obfuscation purposes. In previous versions, Saurik made an attempt to have Cydia detects whether the upcoming tweaks will cause crashing or not, as a result, Cydia Substrate ending crashing itself.
Just like photos, videos, and documents, your downloaded songs should also be back up once awhile, whether that’s through a computer or cloud server. For some people, this might not be a convenient way since it deals with a computer, going to a specific folders, and such things.
A new jailbreak tweak called MusicExplorer is here to help you get over that long process of backing up all the music on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The major goal of this Cydia tweak is for users to not touch any other device or operating system rather than their iOS devices. MusicExplorer allows you to backup or share music from your iOS music library in the .zip form, send an individual song via a text message, email attachment, or upload them to cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox.
Even though Apple has made some changes to their App Switcher in iOS 9, the features, how it function remain the same, and there is definitely room for improvements. A new jailbreak tweak on Cydia today called Lylac is here to add more features and give users the ability to customize iOS 9 App Switcher.
As far as functionality, Lylac allows users to combine both Control Center and App Switcher together. Thus, making it extremely easy to use different toggles, music controls, and see which applications is running on the background. Lylac also works really well with newer iPhone models (6s/6s Plus).
Without doing much research, I can immediately tell that download videos are one of the most requested features on YouTube. Not only when users use it on the Web but also on their smartphone, specifically iPhone and other devices such as iPod touch and iPad.
Of course, with today’s technologies you can easily create a third party software or app and can immediately download any videos on YouTube. The web version is quick, easy, and friendly. But when it comes to mobile applications that allow you to quickly download YouTube videos, expect some popups, infinite ads, and much more.
3D Touch is something that Apple recently added into their iPhone 6s and there are definitely some problems with it. This feature allows you to quickly launch specific settings just by holding on the app’s icon. Not all applications for iOS will have support for this feature, but a majority of our stocks applications does. For example, when using 3D Touch on the Camera.app you will be able to quickly take a Selfie, capture a video/photo without actually launching the app itself.
This is great and all that but sometimes this feature does lag too. If you’re tired of the constant lagging while launching 3D Touch, this jailbreak tweak called 3DNoLag can help. Just like any other new features, it has bugs and need more improvements. While we wait for Apple to release official fixes, why not use an alternative.
Apple’s iMessage app might seem sleek, simple, and easy to use yet still have room for improvements. The company hasn’t made any changes to the service itself but if your iPhone or iPad is jailbroken, you could definitely install some hacks on your own.
By that, I don’t mean like those hacking where you do illegal stuff or anything that can cause trouble. This is just a little bit of enhancements for the iMesssage application.
When users go on Cydia, there are tons of jailbreak tweaks specifically designed to add more features to the iMessage app. However, you may not know which one is better or its compatibility. Since the iOS 9 Jailbreak just came out, here is an iMessage tweak for it.
In iOS 9, Apple introduces their own built-in curated news app called Apple News. Just like Feedly and Pocket, readers can select their favorite websites, read the latest headlines without going where else, and explore the entire collections of valuable news sites.
The downside of Apple News is that it restricted to your region (Example: United States). For jailbroken users who recently jailbreak their iOS 9 devices can now have access to all regions in the Apple News. This will also require installing a tweak from Cydia and changing the regions in your stock Settings app.
