At this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple officially announced iOS 11, the next version of the company’s mobile operating system following months of endless rumors. iOS 11 is not a significant improvement to the operating system, but it introduces hundreds of new features that add up to a better user experience, including a customizable Control Center, native screen recording feature, a persistent Dock, Drag and Drop feature, and much more.
iOS 11 is now available in beta for developers and users who have signed up for the public beta testing program. However, if you now own a jailbroken iOS 10 device, you can test out some of the features of iOS 11 without the need to create a developer account or enroll in the Apple public beta program.
In this article, we have compiled a list of five jailbreak tweaks that help bring many of iOS 11’s features to your iPhone and iPad running iOS 10. Before we begin, keep in mind that jailbreaking may make your device more vulnerable to hackers and malware attacks, so enjoy it with caution.
With iOS 11, Apple has completely revamped the Control Center, making it more useful and more customizable. The Control Center in iOS 11 is now much cleaner and more visually appealing than how it looked in iOS 10. If you are jailbroken, you can easily bring iOS 11’s modular Control Center interface to your device.
Once installed, you will notice the new changes immediately. The jailbreak tweak also brings the 3D Touch ability to your iPhone or iPad. You can get additional options every time you perform a 3D Touch firm press on any of the toggles.
iOS 11 introduces an all-new user interface to its music player, making it much easier for users to control their Now Playing screen. There are now new on-screen controls, allowing you to play, pause, skip forward and back. If you now own a jail-broken iPhone or iPad, you can get the taste of iOS 11’s stylish Now Playing interface.
Besides, you can also control your music right from the Lock screen by using a bunch of handy buttons like play/pause, skip, and volume up/down. You now can get the jailbreak tweak for $0,99 from Cydia.
One of the biggest changes of iOS 11 lies in a persistent Dock, which sits at the bottom of the iPad’s screen. DockXI is a free jailbreak tweak that brings the iOS 11-style Dock to those who don’t want to install iOS 11 beta on their device.
Once you have installed DockXI, you will notice that the Dock at the bottom of your iPhone’s screen becomes much more like iOS 11-style Dock. Just like in iOS 11, you can add more apps to the Dock for quick access.
With iOS 11, Apple has finally introduced a dark mode, called Smart Invert. Basically, Smart Invert is not a dark mode that we have been dying for, but the feature may satisfy users’ dark mode needs until Apple announces an official feature.
Smart Invert does one thing and one thing only. That thing is to turn the user interface into black, with the rest of the content remaining unchanged. If you want to get a dark mode on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 10, give Eclipse 4 a try.
Eclipse 4 is a great jailbreak tweak for iOS 10 that brings the taste of dark mode to iPhone and iPad owners. Once installed, you can turn on or off the tweak right from the Settings app. Besides, the tweak also offers a number of options to configure its settings.
iOS 11 introduces a new keyboard feature that makes it much easier to type on a large screen. If you want something similar on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 10, you should try OneHanded, a great jailbreak tweak that enables one-handed keyboard mode for Apple’s stock iOS keyboard.
