Whether you’re rocking the Electra jailbreak by the Electra Team or the unc0ver jailbreak by Pwn20wnd, chances are you’re looking for new ways to trick out your jailbroken iOS 11 device. Fortunately, this jailbreak tweak roundup can help you with that by summarizing everything new from this week.
This roundup will encompass all the jailbreak tweaks released from Monday, December 31st to Sunday, January 6th. As usual, we’ll kick things off by discussing our favorite releases and then round up the rest afterward.
Our favorite releases this week
HiddenAlbumLock – FREE
HiddenAlbumLock is a free jailbreak tweak that augments the Hidden Album feature in iOS’ native Photos app.
While Apple lets you separate specific photos from the Camera Roll into a specialized ‘Hidden’ album to prevent prying eyes from seeing them, anyone can access said Hidden album by backing out of the Camera Roll; in other words, you get enhanced privacy.
HiddenAlbumLock prevents this by requiring some form of authentication to access the Hidden album, such as a passcode or Touch ID. Face ID is not supported at the time of this writing.
NextUp – $1.99
Any time you play music on your iPhone or iPad, the device reveals a Now Playing interface with information about whatever you might have playing at any point in time. But a new jailbreak tweak called NextUp takes things a step further.
NextUp displays a small preview of the track that you can expect to play next, and you can interact with the preview to skip to that song immediately instead of waiting.
NextUp works from the Now Playing interface on a system-wide basis, and is fully compatible with several other Now Playing-centric jailbreak tweaks.
Waves – FREE
Waves is a fun and quirky new jailbreak tweak that can be had for free, and just as the name implies, it brings fluid-like animations to your Home screen for your entertainment.
Waves taps into your device’s accelerometer to detect motion and then applies those physics to the fluid on your Home screen.
More importantly, you can customize the fluid with different colors and display heights, among other things.
