iOS 11 is packed with a lot of exciting new features that take the user experience to a whole new level. The new iOS comes with a redesigned Control Center and App Store that look pretty cool, native screen recorder, file management app, One-Handed keyboard and much more.
iOS 11 is currently in beta, which means that registered developers get to use it only or those who have enrolled in the public beta program. However, if you’re jailbroken, then you can easily enjoy some of the features of iOS 11 on your iPhone right now. All you need is a jailbroken iOS 10 device and the right set of tweaks.
In this article, we will outline the 7 jailbreak tweaks that attempt to mimic the features of iOS 11 on iOS 10.
This is one of my personal favorite tweaks for iOS 10. As the name implies, the tweak brings the redesigned Control Center of iOS 11 to your jailbroken iOS 10 device. The best part is that it looks and functions exactly like the iOS 11 Control Center. You can swipe the brightness or the volume tile to adjust their level, interact with the toggles, as well as 3D Touch on some tiles to expand them.
Just like iOS 11, if you 3D Touch any of the toggles, the tile expands to display additional toggles. If your device doesn’t support 3D Touch, then you can simply tap and hold on a toggle to achieve the same effect.

One of the notable changes of the iOS 11 Lock screen is the new design of the Now Playing interface, which occupies much less space and looks more stylish. LockscreenXI brings the new design of the iOS 11 music player as well as the passcode screen to iOS 10.
When there’s a song playing on your iPhone, a music widget appears on the Lock screen which displays metadata information and music controls such as play/pause buttons, volume slider, skip button, and much more. The tweak redesigns the passcode screen as well to look more like iOS 11.

The Home screen dock in iOS 11 has received a slight redesign and this tweak brings the same style to iOS 10. Instead of spanning the entire width of the screen, the tweak makes the corners of the dock rounded, just like in iOS 11. It also allows you to add 5 apps to the dock instead of 4.

For many years, we’ve been craving to get dark mode in iOS. Apple has finally added this feature to iOS 11 with something called ‘Smart Invert‘. While it still has some kinks, like it inverses the color of images in Safari, it does a pretty good job at bringing dark mode to iOS 11.
If you want something similar for iOS 10, then you should try Eclipse 4. It is one of the best tweaks that allows you to enable dark mode in iOS 10. In fact, it works much better than the ‘Smart Invert’ feature in iOS 11.

The large screen size of new iPhone models has made it difficult to use your iPhone with a single hand, especially when it comes to typing with the virtual keyboard. Apple tackles this issue in iOS 11 with a new feature that enables one-handed mode for the stock iOS keyboard.
OneHanded is a jailbreak tweak that brings a similar feature to iOS 10. When you’ve installed the tweak, simply swipe in from the left or the right edge of the screen to enabled one-handed keyboard mode. This causes the keyboards keys to move to either side of the screen so that you can type more easily with a single hand.
The tweak goes a step further to add text editing tools to the empty space that is created when you enable one-handed mode.

Everyone loves installing tons of apps on their iPhone, but these apps slowly start to pile up on your Home screen. When it comes to tidying up your Home screen, it becomes extremely annoying because you can only move one app at a time. This wastes a lot of time when there are many apps to manage.
iOS 11 now has the ability to move multiple apps at once, and this feature is obviously inspired by a jailbreak tweak known as MultiIconMover. It allows you to move more than one app at a time. You can move multiple apps between different pages as well as place them into folders. This is a great time-saver.

One of the best new features of iOS 11 is the native screen recorder that finally allows you to record your iPhone screen from your device, without using a computer or a third-party app. Jailbreak users have been enjoying this feature for a long time with a tweak known as CCRecord. It adds a new button to Control Center that enables screen recording.
