Is There A Jailbreak For iPhone 7 Or iPhone 7 Plus?

It has been almost two weeks since Apple started to sale its new handsets and now many users are interested is there a jailbreak for iPhone 7. According to recent report Luca Todesco aka qwertyoruiop, the popular Italian iOS hacker, who some say has been trolling us by demoing jailbreaks, has managed to jailbreak iPhone 7. 

The hacker has posted the photo of Cydia running on the iPhone 7 on Twitter.

As it can be seen from the screenshot above the hacker shows Cydia that is running on iOS 10.0.1 on iPhone9,3, which is the model number of iPhone 7.

Apple left its kernel unencrypted when it rolled out early versions of the iOS 10 beta in an effort to find and fix vulnerabilities faster. But it seems the company wasn’t able to eliminate all of them before iOS 10 made its public debut last week.

Luca Todesco had also released a teaser video to show that he had successfully jailbroken iOS 10. But don't hope that the hacker will release this iOS 10 iPhone 7 jailbreak for the community. He developed it for personal use, and he won’t be launching it for public eye. That means your dream of getting jailbreak apps and tweaks on your brand new iPhone 7 won’t become a reality just yet.

Nevertheless, there is a jailbreak for iPhone 7 and this is still a promising development. If Tedesco has been able to jailbreak the iPhone 7 this quickly, it gives us hopes that Pangu or TaiG team will release a jailbreak for iOS 10 which will also support iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus very soon. That’s if Apple doesn’t patch the vulnerability that makes this possible in its next iOS 10 update, of course. The latest jailbreak available for iDevices users is Pangu tool for iOS 9.2-9.3.3. So if you are jailbroken stay away from updating to iOS 10.

How To Make Paragraph Text Selection In iOS 9.3.3 More Precise

If your iDevices is jailbroken you can make paragraph text selection in iOS 9 real fun with new Cydia release known as BetterTextSelection. There are a lot of users who use iOS‘ text selection and find it developed just fine, but there are others who really dislike the way it’s implemented and looking for apps or tweaks to make it more improved and easy in use.

BetterTextSelection tweak aims to make the text selection feature in iOS a little more precise, especially in the context of selecting large excerpts of text from blocky paragraphs on a web page.

How To Make Paragraph Text Selection In iOS 9 More Precise

In any WebKit-enabled app on your iOS device, or simply in Safari, you might notice that when you try and select a large portion of a paragraph, around 70-80% of it, the selection grabbers will automatically capture the whole paragraph, as shown on the top post picture on the left.

For many user, this is an unacceptable solution that we want to pick the entire paragraph and make this problem really annoying. But BetterTextSelection tweak does away with that stupid assumption to make it easier to fine-grain your text selection from blocky paragraphs on jailbroken iOS 9.3.3 iPhone.

So in order to make paragraph text selection in iOS 9 more precise head to Cydia and grab BetterTextSelection for completely free of cost. The tweak doesn’t offer any options to configure.

Once you install this new jailbreak tweak, you can start to precisely select paragraph of text in WebKit-enabled apps right away without iOS automatically selecting the whole paragraph, as shown on the top post picture on the right.

For those who frequently work with text on their jailbroken iOS 9.2-9.3.3 devices BetterTextSelection tweak will be a great helper for solving text selection tasks.

During a lockout time frame, you’ll be unable to launch the app until after the time frame expires.

It is also possible to turn the tweak on or off from the settings of the app in case you really might need to bypass the lock, such as an important text message you can’t miss. You can also hide or show alerts when apps are locked and choose a UI theme of your choice.

When you tap on an app, you will get an editing interface that allows you to select the lockout time frame you wish to be locked out of an app for:

You will also notice the times display in 24-hour format, but when you’re picking a time from the time rotary picker, they are in 12-hour format, so you don’t need to know 24-hoour time to use this tweak.

When you put the time limit on any app the next time will try to launch an app that is locked, you will get this alert instead of the app opening on our device as shown on the top post picture.

New Cydia Release Improves Fullscreen Scrolling Experience In Safari In iOS 9

Do you want to improve fullscreen scrolling experience in Safari in iOS 9, then new Cydia release called SafariFullScreenScrolling will help you to do it. As our iPhones don’t have as large and immersive of a display as computer does, SafariFullScreenScrolling tweak cleans up the interface of Safari on your iPhone while you’re scrolling around to give you a much nicer full-screen effect.

iOS already tries to go full-screen when you’re browsing by shrinking down the size of the navigation bar and hiding the bottom bar entirely, but this tweak takes things a step further by completely hiding all of the bars as you scroll.

How To Improve Fullscreen Scrolling Experience In Safari In iOS 9

In order to improve fullscreen scrolling experience in Safari in iOS 9 on your jailbroken iPhone head to Cydia and download SafariFullScreenScrolling tweak absolutely for free. The tweak works with all iOS 9 devices, including the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. What is important there are no options to configure, so you can start using the tweak immediately after you install it.

On the animated GIF below you can see how the tweak works:

As you can see, the top bar completely disappears when you start scrolling. The tweak will even hide the iOS status bar. This gives you a truer full-screen web browsing experience that the stock iOS standards can’t touch.

When you scroll back up to the top of the web page, both the top navigation bar and bottom action button bar in Safari come back into view so you can interact with them if you needed to.

The bars are never too far out of reach to get back, and overall, this tweak dedicates more of the limited screen space you have to displaying more web content at a glance. 

SafariFullScreenScrolling tweak is a really great addition to Safari as it provides a rich fullscreen scrolling experience for every user who have jailbroken device. The tweak works so seamlessly that after sometime you will forget there is a tweak installed and will think of it as a stock feature.

How To Keep Track Of Cellular Data Usage In iOS 9

If you have jailbroken iPhone you can try new jailbreka tweak called CellularMonitor that helps you to keep track of cellular data usage in iOS 9. Every day ee consume more cellular data on our iPhone than we think. Although your carriers are aiming to increase that rate while keeping your bill at the same cost, some users still have data limitations.

If you still have small data allowances, then it’s good to keep track of the usage to avoid a massive bill at the end of the month. With CellularMonitor tweak installed you can rest assured you won’t be going over your data limits ever again.

Here is short review on how this tweak actually works.

How To Keep Track Of Cellular Data Usage On iOS 9.3.3 iPhone

You can use CellularMonitor to set up alert intervals that will help let you know when you’re getting close to your cap, and when you actually get to your limit, the tweak will disable cellular data automatically so you don’t get charged for data overages.

In order to keep track of cellular data usage in iOS 9 head to Cydia and grab CellularMonitor for free of charge. 

After installing the tweak, the developer recommends rebooting your jailbroken iOS 9 iPhone so it can fully take effect. If you jailbroke with Pangu on iOS 9.3.3, this means you’ll need to boot up semi-untethered, so keep this in mind. Once done, you can start configuring the tweak and try to use it.

You need to head to tweak's preferences pane in the Settings app to configure your data warning intervals and set up your billing period refresh rate.

As you can on the screenshot above, you are given text fields for a first, second, and final warning. After the final warning is triggered, the tweak automatically turns your cellular data off and you’ll have to toggle it back on manually at your convenience.

Another field allows you to put in your current data usage, which is helpful if you install this tweak in the middle of your billing period and need to give it somewhere to start. You can also configure reset intervals so the tweak automatically restarts its counter every billing cycle.

CellularMonitor is a smart tweak that knows how help you not go over data limit on your jailbroken iPhone.
