iPhone is a great music player. You can listen to almost any song that you wish, and with Apple Music, you get access to a huge collection of songs that you can browse, ranging from trending albums to hot new songs that are worth checking out. The Music app comes with many essential features that make it a powerful music player, but as is the case with software, it always has space for improvements.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
Just recently, we posted a roundup of the best jailbreak tweaks for the iOS 10 Lock screen. Of all the tweaks that were listed, there was one that stood out the most, Falcon. The concept behind this tweak is quite interesting and I decided to take it for a spin and see how it works.
Other than a few minor tweaks here and there, the Lock screen in iOS has remained the same for several years now. In iOS 10, we got to see the addition of a new page on the Lock screen that displays all the widgets you’ve installed on your device.
If you’re an old jailbreak user, then you should be familiar with a fairly popular tweak known as Auxo that brings a completely new look and feel to the iOS Control Center. Unfortunately, the tweak never received an update for iOS 10, which has left many jailbreak users looking for alternatives.
The Power Off screen in iOS has been revamped several times over the past few iterations of iOS. In iOS 10, when you press and hold the Power button, you’re presented with a slider and a knob which you can to swipe to power off your iPhone. If you’d like to bring a new look to this interface or switch to how it looked back in iOS 7, then you should check out a new jailbreak tweak known as StyloPowerDown.
If you’ve been jailbreaking for quite a while, you should have come across tweaks that colorize notification banners based on the dominant color of their app icon along with similar tweaks that do it for the 3D Touch menu, the Now Playing interface in the Music app, as well as the notification badge on app icons. Now there’s another tweak that brings a similar concept to a part of iOS that was never done before.
AirPlay is a very useful feature in iOS that allows users to stream content from their iPhone or iPad to other AirPlay-enabled devices such as Apple TV. This means that if there are apps that are not on Apple TV but are available on iOS, then you can easily stream content from these apps on your iOS device to your Apple TV.
If you use Cellular Data on your iPhone, then you might be aware that you can easily filter apps to choose the ones that can access your mobile data connection. This allows you to block apps that consume a lot of bandwidth, thereby saving you from wasting unnecessary mobile data.
