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.

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.
