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.
Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks
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.
In case you were busy this week and didn’t get a chance to check Cydia, don’t worry as we have compiled a list of all the new tweaks that were released in the week which are worth checking out.
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.
Every once in a while, we come across an amazing jailbreak tweak that definitely deserves to receive a mention. One such tweak is Boxy 3 which was released a few days back. If you jailbreak your iPhone with the primary reason of customizing it, then you’re going to love this new tweak.
When iOS 10 was released, many people were infuriated that Apple removed the ‘Slide to Unlock’ feature from the Lock screen, a functionality that was present since the early days of iOS. Instead, Apple has replaced it with ‘Press home to unlock’, which as the name implies, requires users to press the Home button to get past the Lock screen and unlock their device.
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.
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.
