With a new Cydia release you can allow one contact to bypass iPhone’s silent mode. Usually you put your iPhone into silent mode by using the switch on the side in situation when you don’t want incoming call to make noise. On the other hand, we all have someone special person in our lives we still want to hear notifications from, regardless of everyone else. That's why PowerCaller jailbreak tweak comes in handy as it lets you override the mute switch and boost the ringtone volume for one specific contact, and it’s perfect for the aforementioned scenario.
How To Allow One Contact To Bypass iPhone’s Silent Mode
So if you have one special person and want to allow one contact to bypass iPhone’s silent mode then you should navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download it it for free of charge. Note that the tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices that sport a ringer/silent switch, which includes all iPhones and some older iPad models.
Once you install the tweak, go to a dedicated preferences pane in the Settings app. From there you can toggle the tweak on or off on a demand and choose the contact whom you want to bend the rules for:
You will need to manually type in the contact’s name exactly as it appears in your Contacts app. Be carefully as the tweak does a check for the contact’s name when you receive an inbound call. If the name is a match, the ringtone will be allowed through the filter regardless of mute switch positioning. If the name isn’t a match, then your ringtone will be suppressed just as it was intended to be in the first place whenever the mute switch is turned to the “silent” setting.
PowerCaller tweak offers a great way not to miss am important call from the specified caller even if your jailbroken device is in the silent mode.
