Harp jailbreak tweak allows you to add a nudge of feedback to the Control Center and Lock Screen music buttons for compatible devices.


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. Fortunately, jailbreaking is always goes a step forward in that direction, that's why with Harp tweak you can enable haptic feedback on music controls on iOS 10.

Harp generates the haptic feedback in your hand any time you interact with pause/play music controls, the next/previous song buttons, volume and audio scrubbers.

You can download Harp from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free of charge. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones. The tweak works on iPhones with older vibrator motor or the newer model with taptic engine, however results are likely to be much smoother-feeling and lighter on the battery if you have the taptic engine. With that said, Harp tweak works great on the newer iPhone devices.

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.


Keep in mind that this tweak doesn’t work if you are in Music app. But it works while you control your Music controls from Control Center or Lockscreen. Also this tweak works on all the third party apps too.

It is the main point for accessing and managing your open applications and you probably use it more frequently than any other iOS feature. With the iOS 10 release it received a minor enhancements in terms of aesthetics, and 3DSwitcher 2 brings a bulk of 3D visual effects which can be applied to App Switcher in iOS 9 and iOS 10.


By default in iOS 10 the App Switcher has a two-dimensional appearance, but 3DSwitcher 2 changes this and offers a three-dimensional options. You can peek from over seven different types of 3D effects. 

Words don’t really do 3DSwitcher 2 justice, but rest assured, because the tweak’s developer has a YouTube video in which things are shown off in all their glory: 


So if you're interested in trying all that effects then you can download 3DSwitcher 2 from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for only $1.99. Those who have the older version of the tweak, called 3DSwitcher, can grab this updated version for $0.99.

Once the tweak is installed to get started head to its preferences pane in Settings app. There you can select the three-dimensional effects that should be applied to your App Switcher. There is no need to respring your device as the 3D effects will be applied right away. What is more, it lets you quickly visualize the selected 3D effect and pick the one which looks the best for you.

Apart from this, the 3DSwitcher 2 preferences pane offers you options to turn on/off the tweak, and toggling on the fading, scaling or rolling of app icons as you scroll across the App Switcher.

Bringing a 3D visual effect to iPhone’s App Switcher 3DSwitcher 2tweak gives it a more pleasant look and feel. Any feature that is used very frequently, like the App Switcher, surely needs a little customization from time to time.

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.

How To Disable Banner Notifications When Using A Specific App

With a new jailbreak tweak known as Eyeplugs you can disable banner notifications when using a specific app on your jailbroken iOS 10 device. Usually when you receive a notification, it is displayed as a banner at the top of your device's screen. For some users it can be really annoying especially when playing favorite game or watching a video and continuously receive notifications.

How To Disable Banner Notifications When Using A Specific App In iOS 10


Eyeplugs tweak allows you to disable unwanted notification banners from getting in the way within a specific app. For example, you can disable banner notifications in the Music app such that when you receive any notification while using the app, it will not be displayed. Of course you can do it for any other app on your device.

So if you want to get the ability to disable banner notifications when using a specific app then go to Cydia BigBoss repository and grab Eyeplugs for free. The tweak supports only jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

Once Eyeplugs is installed, it will add its preferences pane in Settings where you can configure the tweak. 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 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.

How To Make The Volume HUD Less Intrusive In iOS 10

If you want to make the volume HUD less intrusive in iOS 10 then you should jailbreak you device first and install new Cydia release called Sonus. This is not a secret that almost all users don’t like the obtrusive volume HUD in iOS. It can be really annoying especially when you’re playing a favorite game, looking at photos, or browsing the web and the volume HUD covers a huge portion of your iPhone's screen.


Sonus jailbreak tweak makes the volume HUD less intrusive in iOS 10 and here is how it does its job. The tweak replaces the default volume HUD with a slimmer version that is displayed in Status bar. When you press the volume up or down button, the Status bar gradually fades out to show a horizontal volume bar that takes a lot less space. 

What is more the tweak supports both landscape and portrait orientations, which not all volume HUD replacement tweaks do. It also has a number of customization options which you can find in the preferences pane in Settings app.


The tweak also has the ability to work as a volume adjustment slider whenever the volume HUD appears. When it does, you can opt to have a grabber appear on the indicator that allows you to adjust the volume via the touch screen once you’ve already got the HUD open.

Sonus offers similar functionality to StatusbarVolume tweak but the latter doesn’t have as much customization options as Sonus has and wasn't updated to iOS 10 yet.

So Sonus tweak is the best choice if you want to make the volume HUD less obtrusive. It can be downloaded from Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $1.99 .Then tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices. So if you are jailbroken with Yalu than you can grab the tweak right away.

New Jailbreak Tweak Makes The Messages App Translucent In iOS 10

You can make the iOS 10 Messages app translucent if you are get bored with plain and white look of this stock app on your device. If you have jailbroken iOS 10 device you can use a new Cydia release dubbed as TranslucentMessages that takes a boring UI and gives it some fancy translucent visuals. Let's see how it works.

How To Make The Messages App Translucent In iOS 10



To get started you should go to Cydia and download TranslucentMessages for free on your jailbroken iOS 10 iPhone and install it. The tweak will add a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can toggle the translucent effects on or off:


As you use Messages, you’ll be able to make out any interface that was just behind it before you launched the app. In this case, it’s my Home screen wallpaper, and you can see a silhouette of it behind the app’s UI.

These effects take place throughout the app, from the conversation list view, to the conversation itself, to even the Details pane of the conversation.

The tweak's effects don’t hinder the legibility of text and images at all, so if you happen to like the way the tweak looks, you can rest assured it’s not going to make reading harder on your eyes. TranslucentMessages works great with iMessage or SMS, and it even looks good with stickers and images that you might send or receive in addition to text messages.

It should be mentioned that TranslucentMessages tweak doesn't have any influence on the Messages app functionality so the app will continue to work as usual. It simply changes the look and feel of the app while retaining all of its features that you enjoy most.

So if you want to make the iOS 10 Messages app translucent with stunning blur effects then TranslucentMessages is a great choice. Even that the idea isn’t actually new, but it’s nice to see some unusual enhancements breathed into Messages app in iOS 10.

Aerial Tweak Adds Splash Of Color To Status Bar Icons In iOS 10

A new Cydia tweak dubbed as Aerial offers users the ability to add splash of color to Status Bar icons in iOS 10. The tweak has been developed by a team known as PolyTweaks, and popular graphical designer Surenix, but the developer behind its creation stayes anonymous.

How To Add Splash Of Color To Status Bar Icons



As you can see on the image example below, Aerial tweak allows you to assign colors to Status Bar icons by individually. Normally all of these icons are black in lighter interfaces or white in darker interfaces. But they look so much more alive after the paint job has been applied to them.




So if you want to try to add splash of color to your Status Bar icons in iOS 10 then visit Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download the tweak for $1.99. Note this tweak works great with devices jailbroken with the Yalu iOS 10 jailbreak.

After installation, Aerial will add a preferences pane to the Settings app, where you can configure the colors for each Status Bar icon that is in the list. As you can see pretty much any icon you can possibly imagine from iOS’s Status Bar library can be configured with a custom color. There are 11 colors available for configurations. 


It is worth noting that the colored Status Bar icons are only visible when you’re in an app, so if you are on the Home screen, Lock screen, or even Notification Center for that matter, then the icons will still appear in their typical mono-colored glory. So keep that in mind. But as most of the time when you're using iPhone or iPad, you're doing some kind of an activity in an app so you 'll have enough time to look at changed Status Bar icons.

Personally I like Aerial jailbreak tweak as although it brings only aesthetic change my iPhone Status Bar icons now look more colorful.

New Tweak Unifies iOS Notifications Into Groups On The Lock Screen

If you get tons of notifications every day and don't have time to look thought them one by one then new jailbreak tweak Unify by SpiritOfLogic helps to simplify your task unifying iOS notifications into groups on the Lock screen and in Notification Center.


As you can see the picture above Unify tweak really frees up space on the screen. What is more iOS 10 normally only sorts notifications by time received, whereas Unify manages to provide a much cleaner look and feel that makes your notifications seem more organized thanks to being sorted on a per-app basis.

For instance, if you have received 2 notifications from Twitter, they will be grouped under one notification rather than as separate notifications. Consequently, the notifications take up much less space, lets you quickly read them and keeps the Lock screen and Notification Center clutter-free.

So if you’re interested in trying Unify tweak then it is available for $1.99 from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Note that this tweak supports jailbroken iOS 10 devices only. Once you install Unify, it will add a preferences pane to the Settings app where you have some options for configuration:


As there are a number of settings to configure here, you can configure the way the notifications look, and also the way they behave. It’s also pretty nice that you can separate the functionality between the Lock screen and Notification Center, as this gives you the flexibility to use the tweak’s feature where you want to and nowhere else.

Unify offers an interesting way to free up space by unifying iOS notifications into groups on the Lock screen and Notification Center. There is an another tweak called PriorityHub that offers similar functionality, although it doesn’t support iOS 10 yet. So at this point Unify tweak is the best choice for jailbroken iOS 10 device.

If you ever wanted to assign gestures to Touch ID on your iPhone then read this post. You might be familiar with the Cydia tweak Activator which offers a range of gestures to be used for performing custom actions.

  • Take a screenshot
  • Launch Reachability
  • Switch to the last open app
  • Invoke Siri

Once you're done with configurations you don't need to respring your device to save changes, which is really convenient.

Since the tweak requires a Touch ID sensor, it won’t work with devices older than the iPhone 5s, so keep this in mind.

The tweak offers quite similar functionality to a tweak called Touchr. But Touchr is a paid tweak FingerTouch in its turn is available for free. So if you don't want to spend money, then FingerTouch is a great choice.

To set up a new image, you’ll have to use a file manager like like Filza or iFile. All you have to do is to launch the picture, you want to set, in any of above managers, and name it “Custom.png” and then move it into the /Library/CRSettings/ folder. Once done, you can simply respring your device and the new image will take effect any time you open the Reachability interface on your jailroken device.

HapticKeyboard Enables Haptic Feedback When Type On iOS 10 iPhone

If you want to enable haptic feedback when type on iOS 10 iPhone then should try a new Cydia reease dubbed as HapticKeyboard by developer Cole Cabral. HapticKeyboard tweak adds a nice haptic feedback to the stock keyboard keys, so whenever you press the keys the device will give you a haptic feedback. Here is the short review on how the tweak works.

How To Enable Haptic Feedback When Type In iOS 10



HapticKeyboard is available for free in Cydia’s BigBoss repository, so download it on your jailbroken device. Note that only iPhones are supported, as iPads and iPod touches don’t have the hardware required to produce a vibration. Fortunately, HapticKeyboard tweak supports both iOS 9 and iOS 10, so no matter if you’re using the Pangu or Yalu jailbreak, you can use the tweak.

Once the tweak is installed, you will feel a light vibration effect coming from your device every time you tap a key on your keyboard. This gives you a simulated hardware keyboard effect, as you would normally feel something when you type on a physical keyboard versus a software one.

This is a feature that comes standard on various Android phones, and has for years, but has only been available to iPhone users who have jailbroken their devices to open up a new realm of features outside of Apple’s walled garden.

HapticKeyboard will add a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can toggle the feature on or off on demand, but since a respring is necessary to save your settings, a respring button is included in the preferences pane:


Of course the vibration feels a lot better on a iPhone with the taptic engine, and that’s because the taptic engine was built specifically for providing feedback. But as it turns out HapticKeyboard enables haptic feedback when type on iOS 10 iPhone that don’t have the taptic engine, so even if you have the older vibrator motor in your iPhone, you’ll still feel the vibration effect.

That's why DarkMessages is here and it will turn the entire interface of the Messages app into dark shades of grey, which will reduce the strain on the eyes when using the Messages app at night. 

How To Enable Dark Theme On Message App In iOS 10



We should say that the dark mode is not only easier on the eyes, but it looks more stylish. The dark UI looks sleek and is so polished that it makes me wonder why Apple wouldn’t integrate this useful feature into iOS as a stock one.

So to get the ability to enable dark theme on iOS 10 Message app you should first download and install DarkMessages tweak on your jailbroken device from Cydia. The tweak is available as a free download package. Keep in mind that DarkMessages tweak only works on iOS 10, as Apple implemented some major changes in the look and feel of the Messages app with iOS 10 release. Once installed the tweak you will notice a single toggle switch in the DarkMessages preferences pane in the Settings app that enable dark mode.


One thing we should say about DarkMessages is that it doesn’t come with any kind of time frame settings, so if you install the tweak, your Messages app is either dark all the time, or light all the time.

DarkMessages offers a similar function that jailbreak tweaks like Nightmode9 and Eclipse can already do system-wide, however DarkMessages has one advantage as it was developed specifically for iOS 10. So if your device has been already jailbroken with the recently released Yalu iOS 10.0-10.2 jailbreak then you can use DarkMessages right away.

New Tweak Hides Tweets From Timeline Based On Keywords On iOS 10 iPhone

If you’re a frequent Twitter user and you’re always finding stuff in your Twitter timeline that is not interesting for you, then with jailbreak tweak dubbed as TweetMuter you will be able to hide tweets from timeline based on keywords on iPhone.


TweetMuter tweak takes advantage from the existing Muted Words feature in the stock Twitter app. This tweak expands this functionality from your notifications tab to timeline so that you don’t have to mute people entirely or to un-follow people to stop seeing only certain things.

How To Hide Tweets From Timeline Based On Keywords


TweetMuter tweak works great eliminating your timeline of everyone’s annoying-as-hell political drama, as well as helping to clear your timeline of spam and other unwanted updates.

So to get the ability to hide tweets from timeline based on keywords on iPhone visit Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download TweetMuter for free. The tweak works on the stock Twitter app, which can be had for free from the App Store if you’re not already a user. 

The way TweetMuter tweak works is simple; when you’re ready to mute a specific word or phrase from your Twitter timeline completely, you follow steps below:

Step 1) Navigate to the in-app settings in Twitter.

Step 2) Launch the Notifications preferences pane.

Step 3) Then open the Muted words preferences pane.


Step 4) Press either the + Add Muted Word or Phrase button.

Step 5) Enter a word you want to add to the filter and then hit the blue Done button.

Once the muted word or phrase has been added, TweetMuter will filter away tweets that contain the muted word from your Twitter timeline:


You can use any word or phrase you want. For instance you can add the word “jailbreak” to your list of muted words, so now all Tweets that contain the word “jailbreak” won’t appear in our Twitter timeline, as shown on the picture example above.
