How To Set YouTube-Inspired Volume HUD On iOS 10 iPhone

Those who have jailbroken device have a great ability to easily set YouTube-inspired volume HUD on iOS 10 iPhone. It can be extremely annoying when the volume HUD on your device covers a large portion of the screen while you’re watching a video on your iPhone. YouTube got around this by displaying the volume HUD in the Status bar when watching a fullscreen video. 

Because Google offered the right idea, iOS developer midkin decided to create a YouTube-inspired volume HUD tweak that’s made to work across your whole iOS platform. The new jailbreak tweak YouTubeVolume becomes the result of midkin's work.


So to set YouTube-inspired volume HUD on iOS 10 iPhone you should first navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and search for YouTubeVolume tweak that is available as a free download package. YouTubeVolume supports all jailbroken iOS 8, 9, and 10 devices. The tweak comes with dedicated preference pane from where you can toggle it on or off. Right after the tweak will be installed on your jailbroken device you will see the changes to the volume HUD any time you press either of your volume buttons, whether you’re in an app or on the Home screen. There is no need to respring your device as all your changes will take place right away.


In apps where you try to watch a video, play a full-screen game, or enjoy other features of the app itself that are normally hindered by the Volume HUD, this tweak offers a large enhancement in accessibility and visual aesthetics.

It’s worth noting that YouTubeVolume doesn’t modify the YouTube app in any way shape or form, so you will still experience the YouTube app exactly how Google intended you to experience it.

YouTubeVolume is a simple tweak that actually brings tiny design changes but if you like the way YouTube volume HUD and wan to enable it on your iOS device then it is the great choice.

The stock options of some iPhone app's allow you to hide the content of the message, but not the name of the sender. This is just one way that the tweak actually one step ahead of the stock settings in some apps. Additionally, NotifyCensored tweak supports a bulk of other third-party messaging apps, which can be enabled/disabled from the dedicated preferences pane in the Settings app:


Just toggle the app you want and you’re ready to go, as all your changes take effect right away without respring.

NotifyCensored is available as a free download package from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 9 and 10 devices.

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 Peek At iOS 9 Clipboard In The Reachability View

New Cydia tweak dubbed as ReachBoard allows you to peek at iOS 9 clipboard in the Reachability view. As for me and maybe for a lot of iOS devices users the space that comes up when you launch Reachability is the wasted space.

That's why ReachBoard tweak aims to make good use of that empty space by displaying your most recent clipboard content in the Reachability view. Let's find out how this tweak works.

Step 2: Then choose “Do Not Disturb“.

Step 3: Toggle the “Manual” option. This will turn on Do Not Disturb feature. You’ll see the half moon icon in the status bar.


Step 4: Click on “Allow Calls From“. Here you'll have two options to choose from. If you click on “Favourites“, all the contacts in your favourites list will be allowed (it can be your family members or friends). If you choose “All Contacts“, anyone in your contact list will be able to call you. This is the better option as you won’t miss a call from people actually in your contact book.


And that’s it. From now any unknown person will not disturb you.

As there is no jailbreak for latest iOS version this is the only way to block calls from unknown callers on iOS 10 iPhone. But owners of jailbroken iOS 9 iPhones can install apps from the Cydia Store that will block phone numbers. Popular tweak called iBlacklist was updated to iOS 9 and came with a free trial package, so, the interested users can test it, before purchase paid version. iBlackList gives you the choice of who and when you’ll receive messages or calls.

How To Open Notifications With 3D Touch Gesture In iOS 9

Of course the Plus-sized iPhones are really great but if you don't want to spend time to reach to the top of the display to tap on a notification banner when friend sent you a message then you can open notifications with 3D Touch in iOS 9. If you have jailbroken device you can install new Cydia release called NotificationPop that takes advantage of 3D Touch feature to quickly get to notifications. Here is how everything works. 

How To Launch Notifications With 3D Touch Gesture On iOS 9 iPhone



With NotificationPop, whenever a notification banner appears on your screen, you can use a 3D Touch gesture anywhere on the screen to launch the notification. Essentially what happens is the 3D Touch gesture simulates a tap on the banner.

So to install this tweak you should head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and grab NotificationPop tweak absolutely for free. The tweak works with any jailbroken iPhone that supports 3D Touch feature. 

Once the tweak is installed you can start to use it as NotificationPop doesn’t brings any options to configure.

So the next time you will get any notification you can use the 3D touch gesture to quickly view it. If it’s a Twitter notification, it takes you right to the Twitter app or if it’s a Facebook notification, it takes you right to the Facebook app, etc.

As you can apply the 3D Touch gesture anywhere on the screen, even from the bottom, this tweak makes life so much easier for users with smaller hands or for those who have the Plus-sized iPhones and struggle to use it one-handed.

Personally I find the NotificationPop tweak really useful as it offers extremely quick way to open notifications with 3D Touch in iOS 9 on may iPhone 6s Plus. So if I'll get the message notification then it takes me a second to get right to the conversation and view it.
