Cydia is a software application for iOS that enables a user to find and install software packages on jailbroken iOS Apple devices such as the iPhone, the iPod Touch, and the iPad. It also refers to digital distribution platform for software on iOS accessed through Cydia software. Most of the software packages available through Cydia are free, but some require purchasing.
Enough of the introduction? Good.
Saurik has finally, to put it that way, “flipped the switch” in Cydia to in order to allow purchases for device and OS-friendly jailbreak applications and tweaks for iOS 9. What that means is that any tweak so far that has been fittingly updated for iOS 9 can now be enabled for sale by Cydia’s very own developers. How encouraging.
While this is most definitely the very first step to being able to have a normal Cydia experience with the iOS 9 jailbreak, developers yet still have to update packages and enable their tweaks and apps for sale, so this option isn’t really yet up for grabs. To put it in other words, you may find a handful of tweaks here or there that can be properly purchased and downloaded, but it’s still going to take considerable time for developers to actually catch up with the new possibility. Of course, we’ll be here, eager and waiting.
Of course, as before, we will be covering the upcoming weeks in order to present to you the definite lists of some of your favorite tweaks for iOS 9. Until then, however, it’s probably the better idea to familiarize yourself with the following resources at hand. We don’t want to dive into the beauty that are new iOS 9 friendly apps unprepared, do we?
