9 Cydia tweaks that Apple will kill with iOS 9


The jailbreak is necessary. Why? Well there are several reasons. One of them is that certain restrictions are removed, allowing us to perform actions that we could not natively. We can say that "the jailbreak takes advantage of system failures", true, but exploits are used that are not dangerous. When jailbreakers (they are, or should be, security researchers) find a serious flaw, they report it to Apple without publishing anything until they have fixed it.

There is another point that can be debated. If someone assured me that Apple was going to give us everything we want on our iPhone, I would answer that the jailbreak also serves as a test bed to find new functions, applications and utilities that Apple can always adopt in the future. And that is what, once again, they have done with iOS 9.

For those of you who don't know, do not disturb mode or interactive notifications are two tweaks that have been in Cydia for a long time. Even the Control Center, which comes out of the lower part, is to a greater or lesser extent what already existed 7 years ago in Cydia as BossPrefs, later known as SBSettings (Don't be fooled by saying those quick settings were seen before on android)

With iOS 9 Apple has adopted another 9 tweaks from Cydia. They are as follows:

1- VideoPane


This tweak (left) came out shortly after a similar feature was introduced on Android. In iOS 9 an option has been presented within the new iPad multitasking that they have called Picture-in-Picture.

2- Search Settings


It does what its name tells us. Add us a search in the settings. So as not to lose that playful fit that disappears and we can't find.

3- Swipe Selection


It is true that the Cydia tweak is better, since it allows us to use a single finger, but with iOS 9 a virtual Trackpad will arrive on the iOS keyboard, which will allow us (at first, maybe more things in the future) select the text we want to edit.

4- ShowCase


Another novelty of iOS 9 will be the possibility of seeing the letters of the keyboard in upper or lower case depending on how we are going to write them, as ShowCase already did.

5- Batt Saver


What this tweak that will also fall into oblivion does is better manage battery use. The new feature included in iOS 9 is called low power mode.

6- Copy


Another novelty that iOS 9 will include is that we can see the photos of the contacts in the Messages application, as we could already do with the Cydia tweak.

7- ReachApp


The iPad multi-window in iOS 9, called Split View, it already existed in Cydia as ReachApp (on the left). Hopefully this feature reaches at least the next iPhone.

8- RelevApps


This is a tweak from Cydia that suggests the most relevant applications based on our use of the device. Now these applications are shown to us in the new Spotlight, called simply Search. 

9- QuickReply For ...


"Quick reply to ..." was not a single tweak. There were many (I never used them for a long time) in which the "last name" was added to the tweak depending on which application it complemented. For example "QuickReply for Whatsapp" (the one in the image) allowed us to respond quickly from a pop-up window. This novelty appeared for the first time in iOS 8, but only with Apple's native applications, which in the end was only one, Messages. I contacted Telegram and Tapbots telling them that they had added it wrong when they announced them in their updates and they told me that Apple had not released that API yet. With iOS 9, developers will now be able to include 100% smart notifications in their applications.

As you can see, the jailbreak was, is and will be important. These have been only 9 examples of it, but in the future we will see many more. Sure.

    It seems good to me because those who do the jailbreak deform their devices and make it look like an android ... you like android, go to android but do not deform the appearance of your IOS because it is horrifying.

      What is silly typing ... Now I don't have a jailbreak but I had it for many years and the least I tried was to make my iPhone look like Android, I did it because it drastically improved the experience and functionality with some tweaks. If you do not know something better, do not write because you remain as ignorant.

    Jailbreaking your iPhone doesn't mean you turn it into android, it's just customization. Also, who are you to impose things on others?

      I'm nobody gilastrún, but among other things the jailbreak serves to put those icons that give it such an android appearance that they end up ruining the elegant and unique facade of IOS, look at your dock ... it's disgusting.

    The Copic application has not worked in IOS 8, do you know of any similar that if it accepts IOS 8?

    Simply put, an iPhone without jailbreak is for people who do not like to innovate, who always want to be in the same thing and follow things as Apple wants to, I think that if you pay so much dollars for a smartphone it is for you to do whatever you want with him and not what someone else wants.

      every asshole who comments that jailbreak is to look like andorid…. although there are subnormals that personalize it to the limit of looking like a cirso the iphone. for normal people the jailbreak is an improvement in accessibility and settings.
