Get Siri Suggestions in Spotlight

Siri Suggestions is an interesting feature introduced in iOS 9. It adds suggestions to the Spotlight interface that appears when you swipe left on the Home screen. Siri Suggestions is a feature that brings suggested contacts, apps and shortcuts along with news and topics as well as places that you might be interested in nearby.

Although this feature is a handy one to have, Siri Suggestions only appear when you swipe left on the Home screen. It doesn’t appear in other Spotlight interfaces, including the classic Spotlight search that you can pull down from the top of the screen. Read More...

Hacker Teases iOS 9.2 Jailbreak (Again)

The last time a public jailbreak tool was released, it was for iOS 9.0-9.0.2. Since the Pangu 9 Jailbreak for iOS 9 was introduced, we haven’t seen a new tool being made available. The demand for iOS 9.2 and 9.3 jailbreak is as high as ever, and we might not be too far from seeing a public release after all.

Qwertyoruiop recently demonstrated a jailbreak that works well with iOS 9.2. On top of that, the same tool is also seen working on iOS 9.2.1 and 9.3 beta. This is good news for a lot of people who have been waiting for a new jailbreak release for so long. Read More...

Classic iOS Shutter Annimation with ClassicShutterAnnimation

When Apple updated its Camera app following the release of iOS 7, I was a bit disappointed by the lack of shutter animation. Yes, the camera does feel faster and snappier, but sometimes that shutter animation makes the whole experience, well, better. I guess I’m not the only one who feels this way, because now there’s a jailbreak tweak to bring that classic animation back.

ClassicShutterAnimation to the Rescue

If you’re feeling a little bit nostalgic, this jailbreak tweak is definitely for you. Available from Cydia’s BigBoss repository, ClassicShutterAnimation does what it promises to do: bring back the shutter animation and that pre-iOS 7 camera experience. Read More...

Gravity: Adds Gravity to Your Home Screen

Not all jailbreak tweaks are created to add functions or bring new features to the iOS experience. Some of them are more for novelty purposes; they add a nice touch to make iOS even more fun to use. This next jailbreak tweak is no different. Gravity, a tweak available via Cydia’s BigBoss repo, will add gravity to your Home screen.

Yes, you are imagining it correctly. Gravity, similar to Graviboard before it, adds a nice gravity effect to your Home screen. Once activated using an Activator gesture or by shaking your iPhone, app icons will start tumbling down as if they are pulled by gravity. Read More...

Low Power Mode with This Jailbreak Tweak

I’m pretty sure everyone loves Apple’s Low Power Mode, especially those who are constantly battling the battery life of their iPhones. When you want to conserve battery to survive that extra few hours before you can plug your device in, iOS 9’s Low Power Mode works brilliantly. There is one problem though: iOS switches off the Low Power Mode when the battery is charged up enough.

Yes, you can re-enable this power conserving mode manually by going into the Settings. However, there is a better way to do that now with a handy jailbreak tweak. Read More...

TextSearchPro: Search the Web from Anywhere

I know I’ve had a few times when I wish I could search for something or define a word quickly; I’m sure you did too. Now, this task is made even simpler to complete thanks to TextSearchPro, a jailbreak tweak designed to do just that swiftly.

TextSearchPro, as the name suggests, is a tweak that allows users to search the web from anywhere on the iOS interface. Users can also define a word quickly using the same tweak; this is a handy feature to have if you find a foreign word whilst reading and you need to find a definition for it quickly. Read More...

Better Screenshots with Snapper 2

Taking a screenshot of your iOS device is fairly easy. You press and hold the Power/Sleep and Home button, release them and a screenshot is saved automatically. That doesn’t stop jailbreak developers from inventing new, better ways of taking screenshots. I personally love the original Snapper for iOS. Now, there’s a new version out.

Snapper 2: Better Screenshots

Snapper 2 is an upgrade of the original Snapper. It is still available as a premium tweak on Cydia. If you have the original version of Snapper, you can upgrade to Snapper 2 for just $1.49.

Once installed, Snapper 2 offers a wide range of tools and features that will make taking screenshots and storing them much more fun and flexible. Read More...

IOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak Teased!

IOS 9.2.1 is not even out of its beta stage yet, but a well-known hacker already shared what appears to be a jailbroken iOS 9.2.1 device. Although this means it is possible to jailbreak iOS 9.2.1 – and that a release may be coming soon enough – the said hacker will not be the source of the jailbreak tool we all have been waiting for.

It was Luca Todesco, a hacker known as @qwertyuiop, who shared a screenshot of an iOS device running iOS 9.2.1 and fully jailbroken. The screenshots he shared also showed a number of details, namely the device is iPhone 7,2 (the iPhone 6) running iOS 9.2.1 Beta and Cydia 1.1.26. Read More...

IOS 9.2 Jailbreak: What to Expect

Jailbreaking iOS is one of the many things avid iOS users seek to do every time a new version is released. With the iOS 9.2, the same process is happening all over again. IOS by nature is designed to prevent users from changing certain things. Apple is aiming at a more consistent user experience, which is why this is the approach they always take with every new version of iOS.

The jailbreak community, on the other hand, is in a quest to find ways to improve, add new functionalities and make iOS better as well as more personalized. Read More...

Is a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 coming anytime soon?

As you may already know, over two months have passed since Apple killed the iOS 9.0.x version of the jailbreak. Since that happened, we’ve seen a couple of iOS updates, but to update on the Pangu jailbreak tool.

Based on this, it is no wonder why jailbreak enthusiasts from all around the world are worried. Pangu’s latest jailbreak tool was broken by Apple on the 21st of October, when the Cupertino-based company released iOS 9.1 which fixes the security exploits that the Pangu team used to jailbreak the device. With this in mind, iOS 9.0.2 represents the last version of iOS which can be jailbroken. Read More...

Meet vShare: The Official Unofficial App Store

The title of this article may be confusing, but bear with me; I had a difficult time coming to terms with this bit of news myself, but the whole thing is almost too good to miss. We all know who app pirates are. They are a group of people that let you download paid iOS apps for free.

Until very recently, installing pirated paid iOS apps is not an easy task to complete. You need to jailbreak your iOS device, find a good source of clean (not modified) pirated apps, download them before finally able to install them on your iPhone or iPad. Read More...

Seng 1.2 Now Available on Cydia

There is no shortage of App Switcher tweaks on Cydia, but only a few of them actually offer improvements and features that are worth trying. This next, Auxo-inspired tweak is a perfectly good example.

Meet Seng 1.2, the latest iteration to the well-known App Switcher tweak. Seng has been garnering attention for all the right reasons. It offers a lot of features that the standard App Switcher doesn’t, plus it offers them through a very sleek user interface.

Support for iOS 9

If you are one of the people who didn’t like Auxo 3’s update for iOS 9, then Seng is the perfect jailbreak tweak for you. Read More...

Springtomize 3 Latest Update

I think it is safe to say that Springtomize 3 is one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks out there today. The tweak offers a lot of functionalities that will allow you to customize almost every part of the iOS user interface. Today, a new update has been introduced. The update added several new useful features you will certainly love.

Springtomize 3 v1.4

The latest update of Springtomize 3 does not offer a lot of changes, but it does add a lot of useful features that make customizing iOS even easier to do. For starters, you can now hide the number that appears on badges. Read More...

Auki 2 Is Coming Soon!

When Surenix and Bensge introduced Auki back in 2014, the jailbreak scene was set ablaze. Everyone was so excited about the tweak. Auki offers a wide range of features that focus on the ability to quickly reply and compose from the iOS home screen or other parts of the user interface. It does so by adding a quick-reply or quick-compose interface to the Notifications panel.

Since then, Apple has integrated most of the features that Auki offers to the stock iOS experience. You can now quickly reply to messages natively. However, I still find Auki’s overall user experience to be much more pleasant and intuitive. Read More...

Finder’s Path Bar and How to Use It

Mac OS X’s Finder is one of the most underrated pieces of software on the market today. Although a lot of developers are trying to add features to the built-in Mac OS X file manager – or even replace Finder altogether – the tool is actually a very handy one to have. One of the most neglected features that Finder offers is the Path Bar. In this part, we are going to take a closer look at how this particular feature can help you save a lot of time when navigating through files and folders.

How to Show Your Finder’s Path Bar

First, let’s take a look at how the Path Bar can be enabled. Read More...

Mockingbird: A Nice App Switcher Tweak

There are several jailbreak tweaks that aim at improving the way we multitask on iOS. I personally like the idea behind this next one: Mockingbird. The experience Mockingbird can potentially bring to iOS is simply too good to miss. I say potentially, because Mockingbird is not quite as good as it can actually be.

A New Way to Switch Between Apps

For those of you who are curious, Mockingbird is available on Cydia for $1.99. It does app switching in a completely different way, offering new user experience that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy. Read More...

Swift, Apple’s Programming Language, Is Now Officially Open Source

 

The programmers of the world can rejoice – Apple, the world’s largest tech giant, has officially opened its treasuries, making its official programming language open sourced. This day is nothing short of historical.

Apple has uncovered Swift in 2014, which has caused quite a stir in the IT crowd. The reason is that it facilitated the creation of apps for Apple devices. However, in making Swift open source (a promise Apple made way, way back) means that now we can expect to see Swift on many other machines and devices – even those belonging to its bitter competitors.

NCCards Allows You to Customize the Notifications Posted by Notification Center

NCCards is one of our most beloved jailbreak tweaks? What does it do? Exactly what the title says: it introduces a brand new interface when it comes to the notifications posted by the Notification Center. It is also a steal when it comes to the price – it is only $2.99; you can get it on BigBoss repo. It introduces additional visual notifications while keeping all the good things that Apple users are largely familiar with by now.

While testing the app, we found a considerably good set with only a small number of bugs. After the app has finally been installed, you will get a new and improved preference panel; it is located, as you might have guessed, in the Settings app. Read More...

Ryan Petrich is really over his head in terms of updating the popular jailbreak tweaks he himself has released. His Activator tweak has finally got a huge update today, whereas his Display Recorder was upgraded in order to make him even more compatible with the current iOS 9 – but how well does it do, you may ask? What are the actual benefits of the final upgrade?

First things first. Display Recorder has received a lot of publicity as of late, as it lets you print screen your phone’s showcase on screen taps as well as the screen itself. Read More...

Rumors on Apple iOS 9.1, 9.2 Jailbreak; Available Soon?

There persist certain rumors that jailbroken versions of the Apple iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 will soon be available to the wider public, even before the end of 2015. According to  certain tech experts, Apple’s security features are most probably considerably enhanced in the new software, especially if we take into consideration how the expected jailbreak models are late.

You might be asking yourself: “What in the world is jailbreaking?” Jailbreaking is defined as the method of eliminating restrictions imposed by iOS on hardware by running the device on software exploits. Users are expecting hacking groups such as Team Pangu to offer jailbroken versions of the iOS 9.1 and 9.2.   Read More...
