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.

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.
