How to Turn iOS 8 iPhone Dock into OS X Yosemite [Jailbreak Tweak]

Apple fans often have at least two devices manufactured by this U.S. company. Having an iPhone and Mac means loving both iOS firmware and OS X platform. It is possible to create iOS 8 OS X dock that will remind of Yosemite system on the smartphone. This can be done only if you have jailbroken iOS 8 and have Cydia store on your Home screen.

Cydia is a great way to find different iOS 8 tweaks, along with Harbor tool. This is the jailbreak program you’ll need but it costs $2.99 on BigBoss repo so if you are ready to pay for the possibility to bring OS X style to iOS 8 mobile firmware you can do so.

Note that this additional app will change the way you are used to app interaction on the dock. Yes, your mobile dock should function just like it happens on Mac with OS X Yosemite. For example, you can add as many apps to your dock as you wish and there will be no need to hide them [if you wanna see more cool Cydia tweaks that support iOS 8 you are on the right blog which covers only useful extras for your iPhone].

How to Turn iOS 8 into OS X Yosemite Inspired Dock

Step 1. Download and install Harbor tweak on your iDevice.

Step 2. You will find a new pane located in Settings where you can turn it on and disable. You can also customize your dock margin, the time for pending notifications to appear inside apps, on Home and Lock screens, the duration of the animation and do other tricks.

Step 3. Once the tweak is running you are able to add unlimited number of games and apps to your dock. With each new app icon your dock will become smaller to list all the additional applications.

Step 4. If you wish to scroll through an application on your dock you have to put your finger onto the dock and slide across icons.

Step 5. To launch an app inside the dock you should just release your finger while sliding over the app icon you want to launch.

The tweak shows your background-running programs by placing a black state dot underneath. This is a cool thing for the fans of OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.
