How To Set The Default Email App On iOS 10 iPhone

In this post we'll show you how to set the default Email app on iOS 10 iPhone. As you know the stock Mail app in iOS is the default mail client and there’s no way that you can change this. This means that you’re stuck with using the stock Mail app for things like composing an email when clicking on mail hyperlinks such as ‘mail:to’.


However, there are multiple amazing third-party mail apps in the App Store that offer a lot of interesting and useful features. And if you ever wished to use any of these as your default mail app, then you should use a new jailbreak tweak dubbed as MailClientDefault10. With this tweak, you can easily set a third-party email app as your default mail client.

MailClientDefault10 tweak currently supports four third-party mail apps including:
  • Gmail
  • Inbox
  • Outlook
  • Spark

So if you want to set the default Email app on iOS 10 iPhone with the help of MailClientDefault10 tweak then you should navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and grab this tweak for free. The tweak supports only jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

Once you're done with installation, go to tweak's preferences pane in Settings app and there you can pick a default mail client from the four supported email apps. Once selected, the next time when you will attempt to launch the default mail app n your jailbroken device, it will open the third-party app that you chose in Settings rather instead of the stock Mail app.

Apart from these four email apps, there are tons of other great email clients it would be really great if developer behind the tweak decided to increase the list of supported mail clients. I believe he can do it easily in the future updates to the tweak. 

MailClientDefault10 is really useful tweak for those who want to use the alternative third-party mail app to the stock Mail app.

How To Backup iOS 10 iPhone Using iTunes Or iCloud

In this post we will show you how to backup iOS 10 iPhone using iTunes or iCloud. Backup is a cool thing that saves your personal info in case something goes wrong on you device, for instance the jailbreak can crash your device. In such cases it is always good to have your data in save place. There are few ways to do it.

How To Backup iOS 10 iPhone Using iTunes


Using iTunes for back and sync is the both the easiest and the most complicated. If you sync periodically, and you have the same Mac or PC and the same iTunes library over the years, everything will work fine.


All you have to do is to connect your iOS 10 iPhone to the PC, and it starts to sync and backup (data from your contacts, SMS, app data, music, photo, and videos). iTunes gives you control over what exactly you want to sync. 

Here’s a pro tip: Enable Wi-Fi sync from your device screen in iTunes. This means you won’t need to connect your iPhone to back it up. Just periodically hit the backup button on iTunes when you’re working, and the iPhone will do the rest.

The problem is that iTunes is complicated and troublesome. You can sync your iOS device with only one iTunes library. And for some reason, if it gets corrupted or you lose your Mac, you’ll basically need to start over again. This could mean wiping your entire iPhone. That just doesn’t make sense.

 How To Backup iOS 10 iPhone Using iCloud


If you have an iCloud account and prefer Wi-Fi connection, you can also backup your iPhone data through iCloud. But you should pay for iCloud storage. The 5 GB you get for free, but it just isn’t enough to even back up your phone data. 50 GB of space for just $0.99/month is enough to back up your entire device, with photos.

The main reason you should use iCloud to backup your data is that once you enabled your iPhone it will back itself up to the cloud every night, as long as your device is charging. 

To set up iCloud sync, launch the Settings app, pick iCloud and from Backup, turn on iCloud Backup. From Photos section, also turn on iCloud Photo Library.


Having an iCloud backup ensures that important details in your iOS 10 iPhone are never lost. Plus, iCloud will automatically back up new data when it’s charging at night.

Now you know how to backup iOS 10 iPhone using iTunes or iCloud. There are also alternative apps to iTunes that you can use to backup your data. You can use apps like iMazing or AnyTrans, that will export or import data like music or photos any time you need.

How To Make The Album Artwork More Prominent In iOS 10 Control Center

Those folks who have jailbroken device can now make the album artwork more prominent in Control Center in iOS 10 installing the new Cydia release. Of course the great thing about Control Center is that it offers access to Music controls anywhere you might need them. Part of the music control interface dispalys an album artwork illustration for whatever media is playing. And this is noticeable that this part needs improvement.

Dubbed as BiggieSmallcc, this jailbreak tweak is developed to make the album artwork more proportionately appropriate by increasing its size to better fit the interface, especially on devices with larger screen.


Note that you'll get different results on different iPhone models, because it depends on how big your device’s display is. In the case above, the screenshot demonstrates tweak's effects on a 5.5-inch display.

By making the album artwork more prominent in Control Center in iOS 10 BiggieSmallcc helps to use up that empty space in the Control Center page between all of your music controls. It also makes it easier to see the smaller details in your album artwork.

BiggieSmallcc is available from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free. So make sure you’re running iOS 10 to be able to download it from. Right after installation, the tweak will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. From there you can turn the tweak on/off on demand. There are no other configurations as once you enable the tweak, the changes take effect immediately even without a respring.


BiggieSmallcc tweak brings purely aesthetic changes to Control Center’s music control page without offering any new functionality improvement. However, candoizo, the developer behind the tweak, notes that BiggieSmallcc works with most other add-ons that modify your music experience like Acapella III tweak, which allows users to control music with gestures instead of buttons.

How To Hide And Show Status Bar On iOS 10 With A Single Tap

A Status Bar on your iPhone displays useful info including your mobile carrier, whether you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network or cellular data, time, and battery level. And there are different situations when you actually want to see or hide Status Bar on iOS 10 iPhone. The desire to hide it away from view might appear when inside of certain apps where the Status Bar is displayed on top of an interface, like in the Pokemon GO app, for example.

With a new Cydia release known as TapTap Statusbar by pxcex, you can easily hide and show your Status Bar on demand with a simple tap gesture. To try this jailbreak tweak you need to navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and search for TapTap Statusbar. The tweak is available for free and it works on jailbroken iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices.














To hide the Status Bar in iOS 10 after installation, all you have to do is tap on it one time. After it’s gone, you can tap in the region again and the Status Bar will reappear. This effect works anywhere in iOS 10, whether you’re on the Home screen, in an app, or somewhere else.

Once the tweak is installed, TapTap Statusbar provides a couple of configuration options that are available from dedicated preference pane via Settings. From there you can enable or disable the tweak on demand as well as choose the animation style when the Status bar hides or unhides.




















One thing that I noticed while using this tweak is that the Status bar will re-appear if you exit the current app. For instance, if you’re in Safari and hide the Status bar, going back to the Home screen will unhide the Status bar and display it again. However, the tweak remembers your preferences so if you re-open Safari then the Status bar will automatically hide.

You may be familiar with the tweak called Wink, that offers the same functionality. But while it was never officially released into public, TapTap Statusbar is available from Cydia for free.

How To Bring Haptic Feedback On Music Controls



Haptic feedback are the standard feature on different Android devices, but Apple is only just beginning to work with haptic feedback on the iPhone.

Once the tweak is installed you can go to the dedicated preferences pane that will be added to the Settings app. From there you can turn Harp tweak on or off on demand as well as enable or disable the haptic feedback for music controls. There is no need to respring your device once you have done some changes.

LockMusic Replace Music Controls On The iPhone Lock Screen

If you want to replace music controls on the iPhone Lock screen then go on reading this post. Usually when a song playing on your iPhone, the Lock screen displays its album artwork along with such music playback controls as play/pause button, music scrubber, next/previous track buttons and more. If you want to change the way these elements are organized on the Lock screen, then a new Cydia jailbreak tweak dubbed as LockMusic will help you to do it.


Normally, the album artwork is displayed at the bottom of the Lock screen with the music controls above it. LockMusic changes the placement of these elements by inverting their position. It moves the music controls to the bottom of the screen while placing the album artwork at the top. This looks more organized and is a little more logical compared to the default positioning.

Apart from repositioning the music elements, the tweak offers an additional new feature. It adds a new button to the bottom right corner with an ellipses icon. It provides functionality to interact with the currently playing track, such as liking/disliking and playing a shuffle song.

LockMusic also changes the way the music elements are organized when there’s a notification on the Lock screen.

The developer behind the tweak ensures that he is planning to add some more changes. So the next planned updates are right around the corner, and will bring an high degree of customization to the layout and the player components.

LockMusic is a new iOS 10 compatible tweak that aims to bring functionality alongside with a nice and clean design for your Locks creen music player. If want to try LockMusic, it is available for download from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $0.99.

Personally I found the tweak useful and can confirm it works exactly as advertised. I know there are other tweaks that provide similar functionality, but if you are looking for one that is compatible with iOS 10 then Lock Music is the best to replace music controls on your iPhone Lock screen.

Preferences pane is divided into two sections: the first allows you to designate specific apps that you don’t want to receive banner notifications in; the second one allows you to turn on/off the summary notification banner that you would normally receive after leaving your designated app(s).


This is another useful feature that tweak offers. If any notification is blocked while you’re using an app,  the tweak will present you with a short summary of all these blocked notifications that will be shown right after you close that app.

It should be also noted that you won’t even hear alert sounds or feel vibrations when you’re in apps where notifications are disabled. You won’t even know you received notifications unless you have the summary option turned on, which is why it is recommended to leave this setting turned on.

If there’s any app where you don't want to receive banner notifications then you should definitely use Eyeplugs tweak to resolve this problem.

How To Download WhatsApp++ IPA On iOS 10 Without Jailbreak

If you want to learn how to download WhatsApp++ IPA on iOS 10 without even jailbreaking your device then you're in the right place. As you know WhatsApp++ enables advanced WhatsApp features that are not found in the regular official version of the app. With WhatsApp++ you can have multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same device.


If you’d like to get new features in WhatsApp, then follow the guide below to find out how to download WhatsApp++ IPA on iOS 10 and install in on your device without any jailbreak.


How To Download WhatsApp++ IPA On iOS 10


This method can be used on Mac, Windows and Linux.

Step 1: If WhatsApp is already been installed on your device, uninstall it first.

Step 2: The next step is to download WhatsApp++ IPA onto your computer.

Step 3: Cydia Impactor is required to install the IPA file. You can download it from here for Mac, Windows or Linux .

Step 4: Now using a USB cable connect your iPhone to your computer and launch Cydia Impactor.

Step 5: Drag and drop the WhatsApp++ IPA file onto Cydia Impactor as shown on the screenshot below.


Step 6: You’ll be asked to enter your Apple ID and password, which is sent to Apple only to generate a signing certificate. If you don’t want to provide it, then you can use an alternative Apple ID instead.

Step 7: Once you enter your Apple ID, Cydia Impactor will begin installing WhatsApp++ onto your device. Once it is done, you should see the WhatsApp icon on your Home screen.

Step 8: Before launching the app, navigate to Settings -> General -> Profiles. For some users, this may be labelled “Device Management” or “Profiles & Device Management”.

Step 9: Open the profile that has your Apple ID. Then click on the Trust button.


Step 10: Now go back to the Home screen and launch WhatsApp.

Step 11: To access the settings of WhatsApp++ and enable its features, switch to the Settings tab and click on ‘WhatsApp++ Settings’.


You now have WhatsApp++ installed on your iOS 10 device without any jailbreak. After 7 days, the app will start to crash, so yo'll need to re-install it again using Cydia Impactor. So keep that in mind.

How To Resize Outdated Apps To Support Newer iPhone Resolutions

New jailbreak tweak dubbed as PerfectFit resizes outdated apps to support newer iPhone resolutions. When can it come in handy? As you may notice there are some apps in the App Store which the developer has forgotten to update the interface for the latest iPhone resolutions. This means they’re still designed to work on older iPhone like iPhone 4s or earlier, and this leaves unsightly black bars at the top and bottom of the app. So if you install such app it won't look nice on your new iPhone 6s or iPhone 7.

PerfectFit is the jailbreak tweak by Tony Kraft that fixes this problem by forcing these apps to run at a much more native-feeling resolution so they look better too.

Look at the example image below. As you can see PerfectFit takes an app with a dated resolution originally designed for the iPhone 4s (or earlier) and actually re-sizes it very nicely for iPhone 6 Plus. 


You can download PerfectFit for free of charge from Cydia. The tweak works great on all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. Once installed PerfectFit will add dedicated preferences pane to the Settings app. Here you can select the apps you want to toggle the tweak’s effects for:


All apps are disabled by default, just toggle on those you need to be updated. You will notice that the tweak doesn’t just ‘stretch’ the app to fit, but it actually does things the right way, providing the proper zoom setting and the clearer resolution as well.

There are bulk of apps in the App Store that you would actually need PerfectFit for these days as they've been updated. So if you have found some you can use the tweak to resize outdated apps to support newer iPhone resolutions and make them look great on your device.
