New Cysia Tweak Rounds App Switcher Cards’ Corners In iOS 10

Those who have jailbroken device can try new tweak that rounds App Switcher cards’ corners in iOS 10 like on iPhone X. If you've watched Apple's September event then you should see Craig Feherighi presentation of the iPhone X. During evident that several changes to the iOS user interface would need to accommodate for the new edge-to-edge OLED display, its rounded corners, and the notch.

One of the differences was in the App Switcher where each of the cards exhibits heavily-rounded corners that match the aesthetic of the device’s display. Other iPhone models don’t have as pronounced of roundness, but a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed as switcherRadii can replicate this effect on your non-X device.

So how to install and use switcherRadii tweak on jailbroken iOS 10 device:

Step 1) Open the Cydia app on your jailbroken device and head over to the Sources tab.

Step 2) Hit the Edit button and then click on the Add button.

Step 3) In the text field of the pop-up that appears, type in the following repository URL:

Step 4) Click on the Add Source button and wait for the repository to load into Cydia.

Once you’ve done, you should be able to find and install switcherRadii by searching Cydia or checking the Changes tab once the app is done “Reloading Data.” The tweak is designed to work on all jailbroken devices running iOS 9.3.3-10.2.

switcherRadii doesn't come with any options to configure and I think there is no need to add more option except the toggle to switch the tweak on and off.

As far as I know switcherRadii is the first jailbreak tweak to bring roundness to the corners of your App Switcher cards. It’s an simple aesthetic tweak, but if you don't have plans to buy the iPhone X though you like the new look and feel switcherRadii ports this new feature.

If didn't update your device to iOS 11 and keep it jailbroken then new Cydia tweak helps you to look great in selfie photographs and FaceTime Video chats. For many people there is no problem to snap selfies and carry out FaceTime Video calls with their friends or colleagues, but for others it is real challenge because they simply aren’t satisfied with the way they look because of different reasons. That's why SelfieTime jailbreak tweak helps jailbroken users of the latter group look skinny and more attractive for their selfies and during FaceTime Video calls.

The tweak uses real-time face-tracking to adapt the user with professional face-smoothing filters. It is possible to adjust all options right from the stock Camera app’s user interface.

So how to use SelfieTime jailbreak tweak. First go to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download the tweak for just $2.49. The tweak works on all jailbroken devices running iOS 10, 9, and 8. 

After installation SelfieTime jailbreak tweak adds a preference pane to the Settings app, from where you can configure tweak's options:

It should be also noted that the tweak works great in all native Camera modes, whether you’re messing around in Live Photos, Photo mode, Square mode, or Video.

Now you don't need to worry about your appearance as SelfieTime helps you to look great in selfie photographs and FaceTime Video chats any time of the day.

New Tweak Brings iPhone’s Camera App User Interface To iPad

If you haven't updated your iOS 10 device to iOS 11 and save it jailbroken then you can use new Cydia release that brings iPhone’s Camera app user interface to iPad. As you know both these Apple's devices have different Camera app interface look and feel.

The iPad’s Camera app interface is designed to have a larger display, making some tools more readily accessible. On the other hand, many use their iPhone for photography more often and would prefer having the same familiar experience on their iPad.

That's why iOS developer Adel Hammoud released new jailbreak tweak known as iPhone Cam for iPad that brings iPhone’s Camera app user interface to iPad. As the name suggests, this tweak takes the iPhone-style Camera user interface and ports it your jailbroken iPad so that the photography experience feels one and the same across both your devices.

iPhone Cam for iPad tweak is available from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. So visit it and grab the tweak for free. The tweak supports all jailbroken iPads running iOS 10. The tweak doesn’t offers any options for configurations, so once it is installed, you should notice a difference in the way your iPad’s Camera app looks right away. It does away with the side-based controls and moves them to the top and bottom of the screen instead, just like on your iPhone.

What is really great is that the tweak also unlocks the live filters that Apple disables on iPads by default. This allows you to enable filtering options on your tablet without needing third-party apps to perform similar tasks:

If you don't like to the way the iPad’s Camera app looks out of the box, then iPhone Cam for iPad tweak could be a polarizing experience for you. That's why I like both of my devices iPhone and iPad to be jailbroken.

PowerBar Adds A Horizontal Battery Bar To iOS 10 iPhone Status Bar

If your devices is jailbroken and you didn't update it to iOS 11 then you can try new jailbreak tweak, that adds a horizontal Battery Bar to the iPhone Status Bar. Called PowerBar, this tweak displays a progress bar in the Status bar which indicates the current level of your battery. So now except such important info as the battery level, the WiFi signal, current time, cellular signal, your Status Bar now gets new feature. The tweak adds a horizontal bar right above the Status bar which increases and decreases based on the amount of battery left on your iPhone.

For example, if your battery level is around 30%, the bar shrinks to one-third of the screen. Similarly, if it’s at 100%, the bar expands to cover the entire width of the screen. 

How To Add A Horizontal Battery Bar To The iPhone Status Bar

In order to add a horizontal Battery Bar to the iPhone Status Bar you should first download and install PowerBar tweak on your device.

Step 1. From the Sources section of Cydia, click on Edit > Add.

Step 2. Then enter the following source: 

Step 3. Once you add it and Cydia refreshes, you find PowerBar tweak. 

Step 4. Download and install it on your jailbroken device. The tweak is available for free and is compatible with iOS 10 devices.

Step 5.Once you install the tweak, you’ll be able to view the battery bar at the top of the Status bar. It is possible to customize the tweak's options from dedicated preferences pane in Settings. 

Step 6. After you made some changes there is no need to respring your device as the result will be visible right away.

Personally I like PowerBar tweak as it offers an new interesting way to show the battery level. As your battery level decreases, the color changes from green to yellow, orange, and finally red, which dispayes the lowest amount of your iPhone battery.

TextyClock Adds Text-Based Clock To The iOS 10 iPhone Lock Screen

If you didn't upgrade your device to iOS 11 and it is still jailbroken the you can try new Cydia release that adds text-based clock to the iPhone Lock Screen. Your Lock screen contains such information as the current time, received notifications, and app widgets. And many users often launch the Lock screen just to view the current time.

The recent Cydia release called TextyClock adds some spice to your iPhone Lock screen. The tweak spells out the current time in English, rather than displaying a digital clock as you’re probably accustomed to by now.

TextyClock tweak also comes with a bulk of options for customization the clock's view. It is possible to change the position of the clock on the Lock Screen, adjust the font size, pick the font style, change the color of the text, and much more.

The other advantage is that the tweak not only add text-based clock to the Lock Screen but to the Status bar as well. So instead of the digit-based clock in the Status bar, you’ll view a new clock that spells out the current time using English language.

So if you want to add text-based clock to your iPhone Lock Screen then you can download TextyClock from Cydia for $1.50. It is compatible jailbroken devices running iOS 7 – iOS 10.

Once you're done with installation you can visit TextyClock preferences pane in Settings app, where you can start configuring and customizing the look and feel of the tweak. 

Once you’re done with settings, the result will be displayed on the screen right away. A respring doesn’t seem to be required to save your changes, but you may notice a slight delay before the changes took effect on their own.

So if you prefer text-based clock better than the original digit-based clock then you'll definitely find TextyClock useful.

New Tweak Automatically Configures iOS Timers To “Stop Playing” When Music Is Playing

DynamicTimer is a new Cydia tweak, that automatically configures iOS timers to “Stop Playing” when music is playing on iPhone. You can use the timer on your iOS device for two purposes: 1) to force your music playback stop after a certain amount of time, or 2) to count down when you're waiting for something.

If you frequently use your iOS timer for these two situations described above, then it can be unhandy to switch back and forth between your favorite music and the “Stop Playing” option for each case. DynamicTimer jailbreak tweak helps to automate this process.

Right after installation DynamicTimer tweak on your jailbroken device, you'll notice that iOS timers become more ingenious, detecting whether music is playing at certain time and acting accordingly. The tweak comes with no options for configurations, that's why it is really easy in use.

If music is still playing when the timer goes off, then the tweak automatically disables your timer sound setting and quickly switches it to “Stop Playing” option, on other hand it will play the ringtone you set up in the settings.

So if you want your device automatically configure iOS timers to “Stop Playing” when music is playing then you should definitely try DynamicTimer tweak. This jailbreak tweak is available as a free download package from Cydia’s BigBoss repo and supports all jailbroken iOS 10, 9, and 8 devices. 

This jailbreak tweak can servers as a time-saver and offers you an automated tool, but whether you need it or not depends on how you use the timer on your iOS device. Because we're not all equal and utilizes the timer functionality for different purposes, the mileage may vary from person to person. 

Personally I find this tweak useful as sometimes it happens that I fall asleep listening to music in the evening so it helps me to stop my device to stop playing a tune.

How To Change The Thickness Of All Preference Cells In The Settings App On iPhone

iOS developer CydiaGeek has recently released CustomSettingsCells jailbreak tweak that allows users to change the thickness of all preference cells in the Settings app on your iPhone. As it shown on the screenshot below, the tweak comes with multiple various thickness settings to pick from, depending on which one tickles your fancy the most.

So if you want to put the preference cells in your Settings app on a diet then CustomSettingsCells jailbreak tweak is available for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. This jailbreak tweak works with all jailbroken iOS 8, 9, and 10 devices.

Once you install the tweak, it adds a preference pane to the Settings app from where you can configure its settings:

Here, it is possible to choose between a plethora of different options, such as:

  • Small cells
  • Bit smaller cells
  • Smaller cells
  • Even smaller cells
  • Extra small cells
  • Extra smaller cells

It’s difficult to quantify what each setting means in these metrics, but for reference, you can refer to the first image in this post. The middle screenshot shows the “Bit smaller cells,” and the third screenshot dispalys “extra small cells.”

Once you're ready with your choice, close the Settings app from the App Switcher and restart it again. There is no need to respring your device to apply and save all your changes.

So if you want to change the thickness of all preference cells in the Settings app on your iPhone your should try CustomSettingsCells jailbreak tweak.

 One of the wonderful things about jailbreaking a iOS device is the bulk of third-party tweaks, apps, modifications, and experiences which are available and offered through Cydia. CustomSettingsCells is the tweak that doesn't offer any new implementation but it lets you play with preference cells thickness in the Settings app.

Translucency Tweak Changes The Look Of Cydia On Your Jailbroken iPhone

Dubbed as Translucency, this jailbreak tweak allows you to change the look of Cydia on your iPhone. Translucency is a particularly interesting tweak in that it doesn’t actually alter iOS as such but rather changes the way Cydia looks during use. Cydia is of course the jailbreak app store that contains all of the best jailbreak tweaks and while there are other ways to manually install tweaks, Cydia is undoubtedly the preferred method. Unfortunately, as great as Cydia is, it is far from the prettiest app around.

There are many jailbroken devices owners who find the Cydia store look boring and would like to add some new colors to it. Sometimes apps need to be more function over form, we get that, but a splash of color would very much not go amiss here and that is where Translucency comes in.

So if you want to change the look of Cydia on your iPhone then you should visit Cydia and find Translucency jailbreak tweak. Download and install it on your device. The tweak is available for free and is compatible with jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Once installed and configured, Translucency takes the stock Cydia interface and replaces the background with a blurred version of the user’s wallpaper. That sounds fairly simple, but in practice it can be a big change especially if a nice and bright wallpaper is in use.

One of the wonderful things about jailbreaking a device is the sheer number of third-party tweaks, apps, modifications, and experiences which are available and offered through Cydia. That's why those who like to try different jailbreak tweaks and visit Cydia store on the daily basis should find Translucency tweak useful, as it change Cydia look on your iOS 10 device and makes it even more fun to modify your device.

How To Prevent Others From Deleting iOS Apps On iPhone

If you share your phone with multiple people, then you should probably know to prevent others from deleting iPhone apps. Apple quipped iOS platform with with restriction features to prevent app deletion. It is possible to head over to Settings >  General > Restrictions > Deleting Apps and easily toggle on this feature. It will prevent your apps from being erased, but now to you must visit the preferences pane and enter a passcode every time you need to disable and re-enable this feature.

That's why iOS developer NeinZedd9 released a new Cydia tweak known as HideDeleteBox. This tweak takes a simpler approach; it makes the “x” button that typically appears after entering ‘jiggle’ mode on your iPhone invisible.

It is still possible to enter ‘jiggle’ mode after installing HideDeleteBox tweak, but because the “x” button is gone, it appears almost as if there’s no way to clear your apps. You can still click where the “x” button used to appear to view the prompt to clear an app.

The tweak actually offer very insidious way to prevent others from deleting iPhone apps, as most people would turn back after being unable to find the “x” button. They’d think something went wrong on your device or that app deletion was just impossible.

So if you want to try HideDeleteBox tweak, it is possible to download it visiting Cydia’s ModMyi repo. The tweak is totally free and is compatible with all jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

HideDeleteBox jailbreak tweak is more a deterrent mean than a security measure as nothing any person can click on the place where the “x” button used to be previously and easily erasing an app. Personally I like this tweak as it is really funny to see that someone cannot remove the app on your iPhone as they don't see no “x” button, but you know that it is invisible.

Customize iPhone’s Locking Animation With Vespera (iOS 10)

A new Cydia tweak known as Vespera (iOS 10) by iOS developer muris allows you to customize iPhone’s locking animation. That's why I like my device to be jailbroken as jailbreaking offers the way to make some stock parts of iOS alive, in this case locking animation.

When you install Vespera (iOS 10), you’ll notice immediately upon trying to lock your device that an old TV animation takes place. You can choose the animation you like from the preference pane, which you’ll find in the Settings app:

From there, you can toggle the tweak on or off on demand, choose an animation of your choice, and configure the animation duration length. You can pick from any of the following animations:
  • TV
  • TV (Inverted)
  • Fade out
  • Slide up
  • Zoom out
  • Zoom out (Inverted)
  • Suck down

Once you're satisfied with your choice it is recommended to respring your device to apply and save your changes. If you don’t, your SpringBoard might crash when you lock your device for the first time after changing the settings. If it does, you can just restart the SpringBoard, and you’ll see your new animation as you’d expect it to look.

It should be noted that the developer said that more animations would come soon. We have no idea what kinds of animations are planned, but they’re sure to be better than the stock animation in any case.

So if you want to customize iPhone’s locking animation and change it custom look then Vespera (iOS 10) is available from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for only $0.99. The tweak supported only jailbroken iOS 10 devices.
