PresentPage Tweak Assigns A Default Control Center Card In iOS 10

The owner of jailbroken devices can assign a default Control Center card in iOS 10 installing new Cydia release. With no doubt Control Center is one of the most useful interfaces on your iDevice, as it offers a quick way to access toggles, shortcuts, and music playback options from anywhere in iOS 10.


Dubbed as PresentPage this jailbreak tweak allows you to choose which Control Center card opens by default when you swipe up from the bottom of your screen. Let's learn how this Cydia tweak actually works.

How To Assign A Default Control Center Card In iOS 10


In order to assign a default Control Center card in iOS 10 you should first download PresentPage tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repo absolutely for free and install it on your jailbroken iPhone. Note that this tweak works only with jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

Once you install the tweak, PresentPage will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. Navigating there you can enable/disable the tweak on a demand and pick the default card you want to see every time you open Control Center:


By default Control Center typically remembers the card you used last time, those users who listen to music frequently are likely to see the Now Playing card more often than the toggles card. On the other hand if you don’t listen to music that much, as in this scenario, you’ll probably see the toggles card more often. In such scenarios PresentPage tweak lets you reduce the steps necessary to get your favorite card.

Personally I find PresentPage jailbreak tweak really useful as because I'm music fan this tweak help me to quickly get the access to my favorite tunes. I selected the Music widget page as my default, so now every time I access the Control Center I see this page.

How To Clear App Icon Badges When Clearing Notifications From Notification Center

With the release of new Cydia tweak dubbed as Pigeon now it is possible to clear app icon badges when clearing notifications from Notification Center. Usually when you remove notifications from Notification Center, the badges remain on the Home screen app icons. So you need to manually dismiss the badges after you have already went through the process to dismiss it in Notification Center. Actually you do the same work twice.

Pigeon jailbreak tweak eliminates this problem by automatically updating the icon badge number after you removed notifications via Notification Center.

Look at the screenshot example below. As you can see we went ahead and erased both of our notifications from Notification Center and the badge that was on the Messages app in one tap. There was no need to go into the Messages app to acknowledge the notification.


It should be noted that Pigeon only updates your badge icons when you use the clear button that appears after swiping on a notification banner. The tweak won't work when you use the “x” button at the top of a notification group. The great news is that ridn, the developer behind the tweak, ensured that he’s working on a way to implement support for the alternative clearing method and he will include it in a future update.

So if you want to clear app icon badges when clearing notifications from Notification Center then you should install Pigeon tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Pigeon doesn’t bring any options to configure, it starts to work immediately after installation. 

Pigeon is really useful tweak that saves you time as you don't have to clear a notification twice. To my mind, Apple should implement clear app icon badges when clearing notifications feature in iOS. 

Colorize Control Center And Notification Center On iPhone With Tinc

If you want to make your jailbroken device look special then new jailbreak tweak will colorize Control Center and Notification Center on your iPhone. Known as Tinc, this Cydia tweak allows you to tint the interfaces of Notification Center and Control Center in iOS 10 any color you want.


On the screenshot above you can see the example of the tweak change the colors of Notification Center, and the same can be said about Control Center on the image below:


Analyzing these two examples it can be seen that the colorization effects to stand out as much in Control Center as they do in Notification Center, but this can likely be changed due to the different blur effects found in each interface. Though, the colors are still distinguishable.

To try other color options you can install the Tinc tweak from Cydia for free. Note that the tweak works only on jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Once you install Tinc, it will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. From there you can start to colorize Control Center and Notification Center on your iPhone.


Tinc tweak offer such customization options:
  • Pick if the color gets randomized every time you launch an interface
  • Pick if Control Center gets colorized
  • Configure RGB sliders to set the color you want 
  • Configure a custom blur radius for more or less color emphasis

What is really great is that Tinc doesn’t overpower any of your interfaces, so it is still easy to read notifications, widget info, Control Center labels, and other elements without any conflicts or eye-strain. 

Tinc is a great aesthetic Cydia tweak that can look great with or without a complementary theme. So if you want to change the way Control Center and Notification Center look on your device then Tinc will help you to do it.

Cheader Tweak Colorizes Notification Banners In iOS 10

If you want to colorize your notification banners in iOS 10 and have jailbroken device then it can be possible with new Cydia release dubbed as Cheader by iOS developer. This cool jailbreak tweak colorizes notification banners on your jailbroken device based on the dominant color found in the icon of the app that brings this notification. Let's see how it works.

Look at the screenshot below: the Snapchat notification banner is yellow, matching the icon, and the Messages notification banner features green color, that matches the Messages app icon. Analyzing this pattern it becomes understandable how Cheader works.


It should be also noted that Cheader tweak not only makes the banner header colorful, but it also colorizes the banner body. The body gets a lighter shade of the color while the header gets a darker shade for better visual emphasis. This makes easier to identify the header and read the notification text. Personally I find this effect very useful as I can quickly look thought the notifications I've received.

So if you want to see how Cheader will colorize your notification banners in iOS 10 then all you have to do is to jailbreak your device (in case it hasn't been jailbroken yet) and then grab the tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. Cheader is available as a free download package and is compatible with all jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

Right after installation, the tweak will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. From there you can configure such options:


  • Select what gets themed: widgets, notification banners, or both
  • Enable/disable banner tint 
  • Enable/disable peek-and-pop banner tint 
  • Hide banner headers
  • Darken banner notifications
  • Change white threshold
  • Display the preview of your changes 

Since Cheader’s colorization effects are system-wide, this means that they affect all banner notifications everywhere in iOS 10 platform including the Lock screen, Notification Center, the app you're using on your jailbroken iPhone.

How To Interact With iPhone Lock Screen Notifications With A Tap

If you have jailbroken device you can interact with Lock screen notifications with a tap using the new tweak called TapToOpen. Usually you can either swipe on or use a 3D touch gesture to interact with notifications on your Lock screen. The swipe reveals options for clearing or replying to the notification, while the 3D Touch gesture launches a quick reply interface instead.

TapToOpen tweak offers a new way to interact with your notifications by letting you click on them to interact with them. Let's learn how this tweak works in details.

How To Interact With Lock Screen Notifications With A Tap



As far as you know, Apple’s gesture system is set up with the aim to precluding accidental actions via the Lock screen. In other words, every action is supposed to go through two steps, so users can go back and undo something if they would like.

Although TapToOpen skips this two-step process, it still requests you passcode or Touch ID to unlock your device prior to taking further actions. Hence, it can be said that you still face small restrictions when your phone is password-protected.

If you have a missed notification on your Lock screen, such as a text message for instance, tapping on the banner notification on your Lock screen will prompt you to unlock your device and then take you straight to the conversation in your Messages app to respond.

It works similarly for other apps as well, but for obvious reasons, it works best with native apps or third-party apps that have Quick Reply API support.

If you want to interact with Lock screen notifications with a tap you should download and install TapToOpen for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. TapToOpen doesn’t have any options to configure, so using it is pretty straightforward. If you ever wanted to disable the tweak, just uninstall it from Cydia.

WAStatusVolume Enables WhatsApp-Inspired Volume HUD In iOS 10

There are many tweaks in Cydia that aim to bring various solutions for changing the ugly stock volume HUD look in iOS, and the recent release enables a WhatsApp-inspired volume HUD in iOS 10. Known as WAStatusVolume tweak takes a WhatsApp Messenger-styled approach to make the volume HUD experience better. The tweak takes the same volume indicator you’d normally see in the WhatsApp Messenger app and makes it available system-wide.

On the screenshot example below you can see how the new volume HUD looks like. Not only does this make seeing the volume HUD less of an anger-exacerbating experience, but it helps keep it out of the way so you can see more of what’s happening on your iPnoe's screen, which is perfect playing games and watching videos.


So to get the option to enable a WhatsApp-inspired volume HUD in iOS 10 you should head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and grab it for $0.99. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10, 9, 8 and 7 devices. Right after installation you’ll find an extensive preferences pane in the Settings app from where you can set your configurations.

You can enable/disable the tweak on a demand pick a custom delay period for the volume HUD, set custom colors for the volume HUD, , turn on the volume HUD on the Lock screen, and more…

What I like most about WAStatusVolume tweak is how unobtrusive it is and how it can be placed anywhere on your iPnone's screen. It can be put at any one of your screen’s four corners, or right up at the top center like you see on the screenshot above. So if you don't like the look of the stock volume HUD on your jailbroken iOS 10 device then you should definitely try WAStatusVolume tweak.

How To Force Safari To Load Web Pages In Reader Or Full Screen Mode In iOS10

If you want to force Safari to load web pages in Reader or full screen mode in iOS 10 then you should try new Cydia release called SafaReaderFullScroll. The tweak gives you visual options to make better and more functional your Safari app adding such features as:
  • force Safari to launch Compatible Pages always in the Reader Mode View
  • force Safari to launch Pages always in Full Scrolling Screen Mode View

In order to force Safari to load web pages in Reader or full screen mode in iOS 10 you need to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and grab SafaReaderFullScroll for free. The tweak works with both jailbroken iOS 10 and iOS 9 devices.


To set up your favorite web page loading mode, you need to navigate to the tweak's preferences pane via the Settings app, that will be added after installation. There you'll find two separate toggles for enabling Reader mode for each page you load and for enabling full-screen mode.

Full screen mode is more useful when you want to view a website how it’s meant to be seen. This lets you view more information at a glance, which is useful for viewing online picture galleries or reading articles.

Reader mode will be useful when you don’t want to view ads or website formatting, but rather prefer to view only a web page’s text and images.

On the screenshot example below, you can see the difference in the way Safari loads pages with and without SafaReaderFullScroll tweak installed. The example displays both Reader mode and full screen mode (right) against the stock mode (left).


Once the choice is made you need to quit Safari from the App Switcher and then restart the app to saves your changes.

So if you prefer to use either of these two Safari modes, SafaReaderFullScroll tweak allows you to interact with them any time without having to manually enable/disable them.

Two-Factor Authentication for your Instagram account is successfully enabled. 

Once you have enabled this feature, you need to enter a security code sent to your associated phone number when the next time you log into your account. Now whenever someone attempts to log into your account without entering this security code, they cannot access your account.

A New Tweak Shrinks Notification Banners And Widgets On iPhone

A new jailbreak tweak known as FancyNC shrinks notification banners and widgets on iPhone by decreasing their visual footprint. To achieve this result the tweak clears both the headers and the separator lines that appear on interface elements in Notification Center  and on the Lock screen. Consequently, notifications and widgets that appear on your screen will take less space.


The tweak's effects are particularly visible when user’s got many notifications awaiting your attention Notification Center or on the Lock screen. 


So to try how  FancyNC  will shrink notification banners and widgets on your iPhone you should first install it. The tweak is totally free download from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. It supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices and has no options for configurations.

The big advantage is that FancyNC tweak effects are not only visible on the banner notifications that appear in Notification Center and on the Lock screen, but also on all throughout iOS 10 platform:


Although the tweak is really good at resizing the notification banners and widgets it has few missing options. For instance, the lack of headers makes it sometimes even unreal to tell what app the notification is coming from and the time when it was received. 

Another downside is more aesthetic, as the tweak leaves unsightly square corners around the tops of notification banners. 

But the good news are that Demy Kromhof, the developer behind the tweak, is planning to release a fresh update. This next release will include new features that will allow users to see when the notification was received, and users will also get the option to enable a 3D Touch gesture to activate/deactivate the separator lines in Notification Center and on the Lock screen. It is expected that this new update to the tweak will be released very soon.

ExactTime Shows Exactly When Notifications Were Received On iPhone

If your device is jailbroken, then when you install a new Cydia tweak it will show exactly when notifications were received on your iPhone. Usually when there are missed notifications on your iOS 10 iPhone, you can find what’s is unread in Notification Center. Every notification header shows an estimate time of when it was received.

Dubbed as ExactTime this new free jailbreak tweak helps improve on this little problem notifications by forcing iOS to show the exact time when a notification was received. On the screenshot below you can compare how the notification banner header looks before and after installing the ExactTime tweak.


As shown on the screenshot, iOS 10 normally shows that the notification was received two minutes (2m) ago. In this example, you wouldn’t know the exact time as iOS won’t give you any detailed info about the time.

ExactTime tweak solves the complicated problem indefinitely by showing exactly when notifications were received on your iPhone right down to the very minute. As you can see on the image example the tweak displays the exact time (12:03 PM) when the notification was received.

The big advantage of the tweak is that it affects the headers of all notifications throughout iOS 10. It means that  works not only in Notification Center but also on the Lock screen and for notification banners that pop up throughout iOS.

So if are interested in trying ExactTime tweak then it is available as a free download package from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. There is no option to configure for this tweak. That means the tweak will start working after installation. The tweak is intended to work with iOS 10, and it’s a strict requirement. So keep that in mind.

So to get a notification banner with weather info on demand on iPhone in iOS 10 navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download WeatherBanners tweak for only $0.99.The tweak works supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices and requires Activator be installed for use.

Since the tweak integrates with Activator, you’ll need to assign it an Activator gesture. You can do that from Settings > Activator or from the Activator app on your Home screen:


On the example image we’ve assigned the tweak the double-tap on Status Bar gesture, but you can choose other gesture you want.

Note that WeatherBanners relies on the stock Weather app for its information. That said, if you removed the stock Weather app from your iOS 10 device, you will have to reinstall it from the App Store to use this tweak as it was intended, as third-party weather apps aren’t supported.

As a plus, the tweak doesn’t require location services, so it’s both battery and privacy-friendly. If you’ve disabled location services for the Weather app, it will automatically use the first of any manually-stored locations in your app.

So if you don't use Today and 3D Touch widgets to check the weather conditions then WeatherBanners tweak will brings you these details as a notification banner.

How To Know When Your iPhone Was Last Unlocked

Dubbed as LastTimeUnlocked, this new Cydia tweak knows the answer for question how to know when my iPhone was last unlocked by showing you exact time right on your device Lock screen, so you can’t miss it at all. As shown on the screenshot example below, LastTimeUnlocked tweak displays a convenient little timestamp at the bottom of the Lock screen, showing you when your smartphone or tablet was unlocked. Using this info you can easily find out whether or not someone is snooping in on your device, allowing you to take subsequent action later on.

Here is short review on how the LastTimeUnlocked tweak works and how to know when iPhone was last unlocked.


To get started you should grab the tweak for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. LastTimeUnlocked supports all jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones and iPads and comes with dedicated preferences pane in the Settings app. From there you can  turn it on or off on demand and change the text string:


Because you can change the text string manually, it is possible to easily change the language to anything besides English. You can even set the text to something inconspicuous so no one else can guess what the timestamp actually means.

LastTimeUnlocked tweak will be useful for those who have a ‘family-oriented’ device, such as an iPad, that everyone shares. For parents, this will serve as a way to know if the iPad is getting used by kids during hours when it shouldn’t be. 

If you have this idea that someone might be breaking into your iPhone behind your back, then it’s a no brainer to install this little package right away. With just a lone toggle switch and a way to customize the text, this tweak is really easy in use. Personally I like the way the information is displayed on my Lock screen: the text doesn't occupy a lot of space and doesn't covers any other element of the Lock screen.
