How To Increase The Performance Of 3D Touch Menus On iPhone

Do you want to increase the performance of 3D Touch menus on your iPhone? It is possible with new jailbreak tweak. With no doubt 3D Touch is a very convenient way to access app shortcuts from your Home screen. On the other hand, because jailbreakers with older devices wanted in on the action, numerous 3D Touch simulation tweaks quickly made it to Cydia to allow non-supported devices to access these shortcuts.

As the result some users with slower devices, that gained support for simulated 3D Touch menus found that the blur effect of the background and menus impacted their device performance. That's why iOS developer Demy Kromhof released Smooth3D tweak that increases the performance of 3D Touch menus on iPhone.

How To Increase The Performance Of 3D Touch Menus

So if you've encountered with the above described issues then you should consider checking Smooth3D tweak, that is available for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository and is compatible with all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. This tweak doesn’t have any options to configure, so its effects are immediate after installation. 

Smooth3D will disable the blur effect that typically covers the whole Home screen so the device can render the 3D Touch menus more efficiently. It puts a smaller load on the GPU, reducing lag and smoothing out the transitioning animations, which will be a benefit even if you don’t have performance issues to begin with.

Even if you don’t have problems with 3D Touch menu performance in its current state but don't like the background blur effect Smooth3D will also comes in handy. To disable the tweak, just uninstall it from your device.

If you have a device that doesn’t support 3D Touch, but you’d still like to simulate it and access the menus from the Home screen, you can try a tweak known as Peek-a-Boo, which is compatible with iOS 10.

New Tweak Lets You Tap Anywhere On iPhone Outside Of An Alert To Dismiss It

Having jailbroken device is always a big fortune and this time a new Cydia tweak called DismissAnywhere allows to tap anywhere on iPhone outside of an alert to dismiss it. Every day you faced with various alert messages that pop up in the middle of your screen. There are different reasons why they appear on your screen, including after an attempt to purchase an in-app purchase or while you try to clear apps from your Home screen.

Normally these alert pop-ups contain both an actionable button and a cancel button. But DismissAnywhere puts a new spin on things by hiding the cancel button and allowing you to tap anywhere on iPhone outside of an alert to dismiss it.

Look at the screenshot above. As you can see DismissAnywhere tweak hides the Cancel button from the alert message, making it look cleaner overall. As the Cancel button is removed there are more space that surrounds the alert. So you have a larger surface area to click on to dismiss the alert rather than having to confine your tap to a small button.

How to get DismissAnywhere tweak. Head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download it for free. This tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10, 9, and 8 devices and doesn't offer any options for configurations.
It should be noted that at present DismissAnywhere doesn’t work with banner notifications and notification-based alerts, such as those related to text messages, emails, Facebook, etc. As for me its functions are a little bit limited in its current form.

But Demy Kromhof, the developer behind the tweak, notes that he’s working on support for notification-based alerts that he plans to introduce in a future update. This feature to dismiss app notification alerts should make DismissAnywhere tweak more usable for all iOS devices users.

How To Keep Music Playing While Recording Video On iPhone

Your mobile device is great at so many things, and playing music is one of them that is often overlooked.

Fortunately, there is one simple way to stop that annoyance from creeping up on you, although it is only simple of you are already jailbroken.

A new Cydia tweak dubbed as Dndmymusic by iOS developer Demy Kromhof bypasses this restriction by allowing you to continue listening to music as you record footage from the Camera app.

How To Keep Music Playing While Recording Video

If you want to get the ability keep music playing while recording video on iPhone then you should install Dndmymusic on your device. The tweak is available for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo and is compatible with only jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Once Dndmymusic is installed, it starts to work immediately, as there is no options for configuration. 

The way the tweak works is really simple – when you’re listening to music, you can press on the record button and the music will continue playing, even as you capture video footage. This tweak works with both the front and rear-facing cameras, and has no problem even when slow-motion video is being recorded. 

The tweak supports several different music sources, such as the stock Music app and third-party music apps like Spotify and Pandora, which is convenient for those that have prefer to use alternative app to the stock Music app.

So if you are real music fan and want to do something with the Camera app on your jailbroken device but still enjoy favorite song, then Dndmymusic tweak is right choice for you.

If you have jailbroken iOS 10 device you have a great chance to set different kinds of wallpaper layouts on iPhone. As you may remember with iOS 7 release Apple presented ‘dynamic wallpapers’ but to this day, you’re still limited to Apple’s stock selection. Dubbed as PanoramaPapers, this new jailbreak tweak lets you have various kinds of wallpaper layouts on your device, depending on the images you choose. Let's see how this Cydia tweak works in details.

How To Set Different Kinds Of Wallpaper Layouts On iPhone

PanoramaPapers gives you two different wallpaper functionalities that aren’t supported on stock devices, including:

  1.  Having a panorama wallpaper that moves along with your Home screen paging. In this mode, your wallpaper pans over slightly with each page scroll.
  2.  Having individual wallpaper images for each Home screen page. In this mode, the wallpaper literally changes with each page scroll.
The panorama mode works best with wide wallpapers, such as panorama images you’ve taken or desktop-style wallpaper images that are wide enough to span across more than one Home screen page. You only need to configure a single image to use a panorama-style wallpaper, but remember to use a wide image, as tall images won’t work for this.

It is totally free and works great on jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Once done, head over to the Settings app and visit the PanoramaPapers preferences Pane. From there you can toggle the tweak on or off on demand, pick your wallpaper images, and respring to save your changes.

There are 7 wallpaper selectors in total as the PanoramaPapers supports different wallpapers for up to 7 of your Home screen pages. You can preview the images you’ve set to ensure they look how you want and delete them any time you don’t like what done.

If you want to remove the AirDrop button from iOS Share Sheets then you should install the new jailbreak tweak to do it. AirDrop feature is a convenient way to send and receive files between iDevices and Macs. As important AirDrop might be, it’s essentially useless if you are not fully invested into the iOS and Mac ecosystem. Admit it, traces of something which you don’t use at all can get rather annoying.

APTTimeout Sets A Custom Timeout Interval On Cydia Repositories

New jailbreak tweak dubbed as APTTimeout is a very useful release for jailbroken device owners as it set a custom timeout interval on Cydia repositories. Why do you actually need it? Often when you launch Cydia on your jailbroken iOS 10 iPhone, it refreshes all the added repositories to fetch the new packages that have been added since your last visit. A common issue that most users face is that some repositories take a very long time to refresh and it become really annoying to wait till this process will be completed. 

The long refresh time is due to different reasons. Usually a package cannot be found on a repository, the repository is down, or it has connection issues. This forces the refresh operation to take a long time. If you don't want to spent you precious time waiting then APTTimeout allows you to set a custom timeout interval on Cydia repositories, such that the refresh operation is terminated if it cannot be finished within a certain amount of time that you set.

APTTimeout is really simple in use. Just go to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and grab it absolutely for free. The tweak supports all jailbroken devices from iOS 7 up to iOS 10. After installation, head to dedicated preferences pane in Settings and from there, you can set the custom timeout interval. Once done, click on the Apply Settings button for the new changes to take place. As an added measure, close Cydia from the App Switcher and launch it again for the new settings to be applied.

As an example, if you set the timeout to 25 seconds, then the refresh operation has to be finished within the 25 seconds time interval, otherwise the refresh operation will be terminated for repositories that are taking a long time. In this way, the refresh interval is reduced from minutes to merely a few seconds. That is really convenient for those who don't want to wait.

APTTimeout is a very useful Cydia package that eliminates the delay you face from repositories that take a long time to refresh. It can be extremely annoying when you have to wait for a couple of minutes just for Cydia to load the new packages. If you’ve been facing this issue recently, then we highly recommend that you give this tweak a try.

How To Preview Screenshots In Banner Notifications In iOS 10

A new Cydia release offers a way to preview screenshots in banner notifications in iOS 10. Taking a screenshot on iPhone is as simple as pressing the Home and Power buttons at the same time. But whenever you press this buttons simultaneously, you just get a flashing screen which confirms that a screenshot has been successfully taken. ScreenshotBanners is a new Cydia tweak that comes in handy in this situation as it replaces screenshot with banners that include a preview of the captured screenshot. Isn't it a nice concept?

So to get the ability to preview screenshots in banner notifications in iOS 10 then you should go to Cydia and download ScreenshotBanners tweak for free of charge. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices and doesn’t brings a dedicated preference pane for configurations. This means that once you've installed the tweak, it will work right away. The next time you capture the screenshot on your device you will see its preview in banner notification.

This tweak can be useful for those users who like taking screenshots a lot, or those who crave to take that perfect screenshot every single time. You can use ScreenshotBanners tweak and get a visual look of what you just captured. As for me it is really convenient.

ScreenshotBanners is mostly an aesthetic tweak, as it changes the way your phone looks when you take a screenshot rather than changing it functionality. Although, as the tweak shows a preview of the screenshot right inside the banner notification, there is also a functional aspect to the tweak since it allows you to ensure that your screenshot taken everything you needed it to without navigating to the Photos app to see it up close.

You can also use the recently-released jailbreak tweak called Share Anywhere that lets you share image, screenshot or text from anywhere in iOS 10.

How To Share Photos, Screenshots Or Text From Anywhere On iPhone

Those users who own jailbroken device can now share photos, screenshots or text from anywhere on iPhone with new Cydia tweak called Share Anywhere. Equipped with Activator integration and share option menu, this jailbreak tweak offers an easy way to share above described content from anywhere in iOS 10. Let's find out have this tweak works.

There are three different tweak's shortcuts available:
  • A selector that allows you to choose between sharing pictures, screenshots, or text
  • A selector that allows you to share a body of text only
  • A selector that takes a snap and then immediately allows you to share it
You can pick the one that best suits your own phone usage habits. But as the first position offers options to share photos, screenshots or text from anywhere on iPhone I think it will be the most popular among users. Let's take this option as an example.

Once you invoke the Activator action you’ve selected, the menu you’ve assigned to it will appear at the bottom of the iPhone's screen. This allows you to get access to shortcuts for sharing different things. Once you click on any of the options in the menu the tweak launches an iOS list that lets you can share the item through any medium you want. 

Share Anywhere is also works with screenshot, once you take a screenshot, the tweak will present you with a share menu:

Typically you have to manually find the picture in the Photos app and follow a long share process for every screenshot. The tweak's menu makes sharing screenshots super convenient.

NoLockScreenCam Disables Camera Access On The iOS 10 Lock Screen

With new Cydia tweak installed you can disable camera access on the iOS 10 Lock screen. If you have iPhone you should know that to quickly access your camera all you need to do is to swipe to the left on the Lock screen. Though, not all of us like this feature as the camera can be easily accessible to anybody who takes your device.Dubbed as NoLockScreenCam, this new jailbreak tweak fixes this problem by disabling access to the camera from the Lock screen.

You can also find the similar solutions on a stock device by enabling restrictions, but it’s a horrible workaround as it turns the camera off on a system-wide basis, which includes in app that uses the camera for any reason. Even though the NoLockScreenCam removes Lock screen camera shortcut you can still interact with all of your device’s camera-based features.

So if you don't want to waste your time look through the stock settings to disable camera access on the iOS 10 Lock screen just go to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download NoLockScreenCam for free. Once you install the tweak there is no need to configure any options as the camera shortcut will be automatically disabled.

The concept to disable camera access on Lock screen isn’t new. This option comes as one of the multiple features in the recently-updated Springtomize 4 tweak, but you can spend no money and get this option for free installing NoLockScreenCam tweak.

It’s worth noting that if you have the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10, that is semi-untethered jailbreak. It means that someone could reboot your iPhone to access the camera as expected. Actually this is a problem of the modern jailbreak in general, but not particularly the tweak itself. 

So if you want to protect your camera roll from kids or malicious friends so they can't take hundreds of pictures on your locked device then NoLockScreenCam is the best choice.

New Tweak Changes Notifications Content Based On Keywords

If you own jailbroken device you can change the Notifications content based on keywords in iOS 10 with new tweak known as MaskMe10 installed. You may be familiar with the tweak NotifyCensored that lets users hide the content of notifications on a per-app basis. Now MaskMe10tweak offers the similar concept, instead it allows you to be more specific with the content that you want to hide.

How To Change The Notifications Content Based On Keywords In iOS 10

MaskMe10 jailbreak tweak lets you change the Notifications content based on keywords in iOS 10. This is really useful when you want to keep certain notifications private and away from prying eyes, especially if you’re in a crowded place and don’t like others to look at your sensitive information.

With MaskMe10, you can change both the subject of the notification as well as its content. So to download this tweak you should head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download it for free of charge. Once you install it, you can get started by navigating to its dedicated preferences pane in Settings.

 There, can change the following settings:

  • Toggle to turn the tweak on off on a demand
  • Mask the subject/name of notifications. Once you enable this option it force you to enter the names to be filtered and specify what it should be replaced with.
  • Mask the content of notifications. This option lets replace the content of notifications with a custom text of your choice. Just enter the filters that will cause the content of notifications to be masked and replaced with something else.
Once you are done with settings, the next time you receive a notification from any app containing the filtered keywords that you entered, it will be automatically changed to the custom text that you provided.

The way the tweak works is pretty clever, as it gives you a way to mask messages that may be sensitive in two ways while still maintaining the integrity of non-sensitive notifications so that they appear normally.

New Tweak Helps To Modify The Activity Bar On iOS 10 iPhone

With the new Cydia tweak you can modify the activity bar on iOS 10 iPhone. Can this tweak be useful? Every time you are using the personal hotspot feature of your iPhone to share data with any other device or interact with an app like Google Maps that uses your location, iOS displays a big blue bar on top of the screen. This bar indicates that an app is using a system service and you should be aware about it. While these bars that occasionally appear on our iPhones are important they are very ugly and intrusive at the same time. That’s where a new jailbreak tweak dubbed as UsageBarX by iOS developer Justin Petkovic can be useful, as it offers several solution of this problem.

So to get the ability to modify the activity bar on iOS 10 iPhone navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and search for as UsageBarX tweak. It is available as a free download package and works great with jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

Once you install the tweak go to the Settings app and find the a dedicated preferences pane. From there you can choose your desired Status Bar type whenever performing any of the aforementioned background activities:

Keep in mind that the slim option re-sizes the Status Bar to the normal size under all conditions, which helps reduce the “squashing” effect of your app interfaces. This option is best for people who want to see when the background activity is occurring, but don’t want the Status Bar making it harder to use their apps.

On the other hand the transparent option keeps the original size of the double-decker Status Bar whenever background activity like Personal Hotspot, a backgrounded phone call, or background microphone/location data is occurring. This option is best for users who don’t mind the oversized Status Bar, but hate the stark color differences compared to the rest of the UI.

If you don’t care to see the background activity at all, you can hide it completely and your Status Bar will just continue to look how it always does, even when performing background activities that normally make the Status Bar too thick. As you can see UsageBarX offers enough options to modify the clunky activity bar on iOS 10 iPhone.
