Each week we intend on bringing you some of the week’s best new tweaks for those of you running a jailbroken phone on iOS10. This doesn’t mean that the tweaks won’t be compatible for our brothers and sisters on lower firmware jailbreaks, it just means that will at least work on iOS10 and that will be our focal point for these weekly roundups. Let’s begin. DetailedCellularUsage (via BigBoss Repo/Free)
Everything that Apple does is well thought out and if you don’t agree, then you may not just have a jailbroken iPhone. The best example of that is this week’s first tweak, DetailedCellularUsage. It shows you what information that Apple has, but chooses not to show you. This is of course in terms of how much data is used by what. Their default version shows what is using what from the apps installed on your phone, but this tweak shows you so much more and gives you greater access to more things that you can turn on or off.
LSHiddenTools10 (via BigBoss Repo/Free)
This tweak might just be my favorite. It gives you full control over what you can and cannot see on the lock screen. This includes the statusbar, the clock and date, press to unlock label, the lockpad, and camera access/dots! Sometimes you just simply have to show off that wallpaper and this tweak will get you there, man!
Vibrancy (via BigBoss Repo/Free)
Now this one is sort of the inverse of the last tweak. Instead of outright removing your clock from the lockscreen, you can adjust its coloring.With Vibrancy, you can do exactly what the title states, which is just all in all making the clock itself more vibrant. This may help with some wallpapers and not with others. Check out some different wallpapers and see which look the best!
SwitchTint (via BigBoss Repo/Free)
Much like changing link colors when building a website, SwitchTint enters the scene for helping you change the colors of your switches in iOS. You can change them literally to any color, feel free to mix and match. And this will apply to all switches, active or inactive. If you share a family iPad and don’t want a little brother or sister messing with your switches after you have them set, you could literally make the switches completely white and hide them. There are a thousand other good reasons to get this app, mainly aesthetics, but we’ll move onto the next tweak now.
Charge (via BigBoss Repo/$0.99)
When you plug in your phone to charge what does it do? It makes a little sound or a buzz, but then it just shows the battery icon as green with a tiny little lightning bolt next to it. This rarely, if at all is useful. The tweak simply titled “Charge” is here today to fix all of that. Charge gives you full unadulterated control over what and how you see that your phone is charging. It even gives you immensely more detail than the default method does, and best of all it does it in a clean and minimalistic way.
GuestMode2 (via BigBoss Repo/$0.99)
Ever since the inception of the iPad, we’ve seen this influx of a family shared device. No more was iOS just on personal devices. You now had an instance where dad and mom and even little Johnny could share one singular device. But there is one thing that Apple has failed to do properly since the release of the very first iPad, and that is multi-user profiles. GuestMode2 is here to save the day (again). You install it, it will walk you through the rest. Have as many or as few profiles on your device as you’d like. Note, we used the iPad to prove a point, but this tweak works on your personal devices too if you have a need for that.
TouchBar (via BigBoss Repo/$2)
The “revolutionary” TouchBar for Macbook has been mimicked in one of our tweaks this week. I put quotes around revolutionary because on Macbook, it was not. But on an already touch device, it works brilliantly. You already can tell what it does, no need for an explanation from me, just go get it!
DebuggingInformationOverlay (via BigBoss Repo/Free)
The last major tweak on our list this week is more so for the developers and tinkerers at heart. For those who know what it is, you can already (kind of) access the Debug Information Overlay in certain apps. This tweak lets said developers access the Debugging Information Overlay in any app of their choosing.
