One of the UI elements of iOS that needs a much needed change is the stock volume HUD which has remained the same over the past few iterations of iOS. There are a bunch of tweaks in Cydia that redesign the volume HUD to make it more user-friendly and less obstrusive, but a new tweak called Castro takes a different approach to dealing with this situation.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
We’re just a few weeks away from the official release of iOS 11, which is packed with tons of exciting new features such as a native screen recorder, a redesigned App Store and Control Center, smarter Siri, and much more. It also includes a new screenshot feature that lets you better manage the screenshots that you take.
In iOS 10, the Lock screen received several new changes, such as a new page for widgets, redesigned notifications, new unlocking method, and so on. But one of the areas that surely needs some work is the notifications list, which becomes very cluttered when you receive lots of notifications.
The Phone app is probably one of the frequently used apps on iPhone. Users depend on it to make calls to their contacts and listen to voicemails. While the app offers most of the essential features that a normal user would require, there’s still some important functionality that is missing.
While passcode and Touch ID are the best ways to secure your iPhone, there are times when you want to hand your device to someone else, but you’re afraid that they will check your private photos and messages without your permission. If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone, then there are a number of Cydia tweaks that let you lock apps and folders, such as BioProtect.
Snapchat was the first app to roll out a feature called ‘Stories’ that allows users to share photos and videos that last up to 24 hours before disappearing. Soon, many social media and messaging apps followed Snapchat’s footsteps to roll out their own version of Stories in their apps. WhatsApp is one such app which added a similar feature to their app called Status.
Status bar is one of the most useful features of iOS. It allows you to quickly glance at important information, such as the current time, the battery level, phone signal, WiFi strength, and so on. A new jailbreak tweak known as Hera aims to go a step further by adding additional functionality to the Status bar.
