Suggested April 2024 Some Of The Best Ios 14 Jailbreak Tweaks For Macos Users

iPhone and iPad jailbreakers that use a Mac as their primary personal computer often wonder why Apple didn’t include certain features in iOS or iPadOS that exist in macOS. Fortunately, jailbreaking means they don’t need to settle.

In today’s roundup, we’ll be discussing what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for those using iOS or iPadOS 14 who desire macOS-inspired features on their pwned iPhone or iPad.

So without wasting even another moment of your time, how about we dive right into it?

The best macOS-inspired jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14 LendMyPhone 4 – $3.99

One of the things that macOS users get to enjoy that iPhone and iPad users don’t is a native guest mode, which allows strangers to sign in an use the device without having their own personal account and while insulating your personal data from their own.

You can learn more about LendMyPhone 4 and how it works in our full review post.

Are You Sur? – FREE

Users of macOS Big Sur would have instantly recognized the changes to the native notification system compared to the previous macOS iteration. Meanwhile, the notification system on iOS & iPadOS continues to look rather similar to how it always has.

You can find out more about Are You Sur? and where you can get it from in our full review post.

Destra – $0.99

Another jailbreak tweak for making your pwned iPhone or iPad’s notifications more macOS-esque is Destra.

It’s quite a bit different than the tweak we showed you above, instead focusing on the actual notification banners instead of prompts and pop-up alerts, but it’s still a great way to add some macOS flavor to your handset.

You can find out more about Destra and how it works in our full review post.

Dock Indicators – FREE

Dock Indicators is at least one way to get a macOS Dock-inspired feature on the iPhone and iPad, and as the name implies, it deals directly with the app icon indicators that denote whether the app is running in the background or not.

You can find out more about Dock Indicators in our full review post.

BigSurCenter – $1.99

The tweak is highly configurable and it looks absolutely stunning. It’s well worth every cent for anyone who appreciates good eye candy.

You can find out more about BigSurCenter and how it works in our full review post.

Xenon – $1.99

Xenon is a jailbreak tweak that I instantly fell in love with because it lets me browse my iPhone or iPad’s native file system right from the comfort of my Mac or PC’s native file browser — be it Finder or Windows Explorer.

While the tweak isn’t available for purchase anymore due to a decision made by the developer, I still wanted to mention how much I enjoyed using the tweak. Additionally, anyone who already owns it can still download it from the hosting repository.

You can find out more about Xenon and what you could do with it in our full review post.

MacPass – FREE

If you want your iPhone or iPad’s passcode interface to look and behave more like the one on your Mac, then you’re absolutely going to want to check out a free jailbreak tweak called MacPass.

You can find out more about MacPass and why it’s a marvelous upgrade for supported devices in our full review post.

Boardy – $1.99

Your iPhone or iPad’s clipboard can be seamlessly linked with the one on your Mac or PC with the help of a jailbreak tweak dubbed Boardy.

With it, you can copy or cut something on your iPhone or iPad and then instantly paste it on your Mac or PC. It’s a very handy add-on for power users who need more flexibility between devices, and it’s perfect for your jailbroken iOS or iPadOS 14 device.

You can learn more about Boardy in our full review post.

Touchbar – $1.00

Last on today’s list, but almost certainly not least, is Touchbar.

This conspicuously-named jailbreak tweak brings a MacBook Pro-inspired floating Touch Bar UI to your jailbroken iPhone or iPad, enabling you to perform actions with a single touch on one of the bar’s buttons.

You can find out more about Touchbar and how it works in our full review post.


There are plenty of jailbreak tweaks for iOS & iPadOS 14 that bring macOS-inspired features to the iPhone or iPad, or that simply make integrating the two operating systems more seamless than they would be out of the box.

6 Great Jailbreak Tweaks For The Messages App

If you have an iOS device, then you already know one of the main features is the Messages app. On iPhone, it serves as an iMessage and SMS platform; on iPod touch and iPad, it serves as an iMessage platform only. Nevertheless, you can even use your iCloud account to sync your SMS messages with all your devices across the board.

Despite how useful it is to be able to message anyone on demand from any of these devices, jailbreaking has opened many doors for incredible functionality for the Messages app that Apple has yet to implement in iOS in its stock form.

In this roundup, we’ll be showing you some of our favorite jailbreak tweaks for iOS 9 that enhance the messaging experience in Apple’s mobile operating system.

Our favorite iOS 9 tweaks for the Messages app

We’re not putting these in any specific order because they’re not really in any direct competition with one another, but these tweaks all compliment the iOS 9 jailbreak experience nicely for anyone who does a lot of text messaging.

Remote Messages – $3.99

Among one of my all-time favorites is Remote Messages. This tweak lets you use iMessage on unsupported operating systems, such as Windows and Linux, through your web browser.

All you have to do is install the tweak on your iPhone and then visit a special URL in your computer’s web browser to see your conversations in an intelligent web app user interface.

All of the features you would expect in an iOS-based messaging client will be there; this includes typing indicators, reach receipts, Emojis, attachment sending/viewing, and more.

Couria – Free

Because there’s no biteSMS for iOS 9, there has been a huge lull in jailbreaking for those who expect more from their Messages app. Fortunately, Couria is a great jailbreak tweak, which is free of cost, that allows you to extend the quick reply and quick compose features of iOS 9.

The tweak lets you see message conversation history right from your notification banners without the need to launch the Messages app, and even includes a super sleek and customizable interface. The developer has also taken his time to integrate an API that allows several other third-party jailbreak tweaks to stay compatible with this beastly tweak.

It’s hard not to recommend Couria, but if you want to learn more, check out our full review.

SwitchService – Free

Another tweak that rose from the ashes of biteSMS was SwitchService, which is a useful free jailbreak tweak that lets you easily choose whether your message gets sent to the recipient as an SMS message or an iMessage.

The tweak is used by tapping and holding on the Send button, and doing so toggles between the two types of messaging services you can access in the Messages app.

For more information on the tweak and its availability in Cydia, you can check out our full review.

TypeStatus is a great tweak that lets you see when others have read your iMessages or are typing to you right from your iOS device’s Status Bar.

The tweak displays icon and a notification in the Status Bar whenever someone is typing to you via iMessage, which can be useful to know if you’re not hawk-eyeing the Messages app and still want to know when someone is replying to you. Notably, the tweak is not SMS-compatible, as iMessage is the only service that provides read receipts and typing statuses.

To learn more about the inner workings of TypeStatus, check out our full review.

Nuntius – $1.49

For those looking to add useful functionality to their Messages app in a single jailbreak tweak package, Nuntius is another great option.

This tweak lets you have any of the following features:

Pin your conversations in the Messages app

Mark conversations as read or unread

Hide or show individual conversations

Switch between sending as SMS or iMessage

Load more messages at once when opening a conversation

Hide your typing indicator so others don’t know when you’re typing

Customize the look and feel of the Messages UI

The tweak goes a long way to make the functions of the Messages app more useful than before in terms of privacy, troubleshooting, forgetfulness, and speed on top of customization.

For more information on Nuntius, check out our full review and watch our demo video.

CKCounter – Free

CKCounter is a simple but wonderful addition to the Messages app on jailbroken devices. It allows you to keep track of how many messages are in each conversation list in your Messages app, whether they’re iMessage or SMS conversations.

The counter is displayed to the right of the names on the conversations, and the number itself can be colorized to any setting you would like.

To learn more about CKCounter and how it works, read all about it in our full review.

Jailbreak Tweaks Of The Week: Letmedecline, Tritium Beta, And More…

Welcome to this week’s jailbreak tweak roundup – your one-stop shop for finding all the latest tweak and add-on releases for the week starting on Monday, December 16th and ending on Sunday, December 22nd.

As always, we’ll kick things off by talking about our favorite releases this week first, and then we’ll wrap things up with an outline of the rest afterward.

Our favorite releases this week LetMeDecline  – FREE

The iPhone is a great communication device, but when it it’s locked, it’s almost as if Apple wants you to answer every call that comes in. Rather than displaying options to answer or decline the phone call, the iPhone presents a ‘slide to answer’ bar. Users can double-press the side button to decline the phone call, but that’s a bit less obvious than it should be.

Those who fancy a civil solution to this apparent oversight will enjoy a free jailbreak tweak called LetMeDecline. As you might come to expect, this tweak displays a decline button as an incoming call option even when your iPhone is locked, making it easier to decline phone calls you don’t feel like answering.

You can learn more about LetMeDecline and how it works in our full review.

Tritium Beta – $2.00+

The iPhone lacks an always-on display like the Apple Watch Series 5 boasts, but it doesn’t have to. A new project called Tritium brings this functionality to the iPhone, although the tweak is currently in its beta stages at this time.

Given the nature of always-on display technology, this tweak looks and works best on handsets with an OLED display. The black background provides power savings, while the date and time always appear for the user’s convenience. What’s more is the date and time display is customizable.

You can learn more about Tritium and where to get it in our full review.

Jailbreak Tweaks Of The Week: Cclowpower, Ccrecord, Evanesco, & More…

We were in a lull for quite a while, but the jailbreak community seems to be making a comeback as of late, especially in the midst of a jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 by Luca Todesco, which is currently in beta.

This week, there have been a number of jailbreak tweak releases, and we’ll be rounding them all up for you as we always do on Sunday. We’ll start with our favorites, and then talk about the rest afterwards.

Our favorite releases this week

CCLowPower – FREE

CCLowPower is a new free jailbreak tweak that adds a Low Power Mode toggle button to Control Center on iOS 10 devices.

The Low Power Mode toggle appears green when activated and dims out like any other toggle button when disabled.

Because it’s usually so convoluted to get to Low Power Mode from the Settings app, CCLowPower helps save time when you need to save extra battery power by putting the toggle in a more convenient place.

To learn more about CCLowPower and its requirements, you can head over to our full review.

CCRecord – FREE

CCRecord is a pretty nifty little jailbreak tweak that lets you initiate a screen recording capture right from Control Center in iOS 10.

It adds a button to the bottom row of shortcuts in Control Center, and simply tapping on it begins the recording. When you tap on it again, the screen recording ends and an .MP4 file gets saved to your Camera Roll, allowing you to share it easily.

Because this tweak is free and uses resources built right into iOS 10, it’s hard to shy away from. You can learn more about how CCRecord works in our full review.

Evanesco – FREE

It works by dimming the app icons, dock, and Status Bar so that your wallpaper gets a chance to peek out from behind. For people who use portraits or detailed backgrounds as wallpapers, this tweak is a great addition that helps bring it to life on an otherwise cluttered Home screen.

There are a ton of configuration options to configure so you can time the idle just right and choose what gets dimmed and what doesn’t.

To learn more about how Evanesco works, we recommend checking out our full review.

Other releases this week

Cream 2: Based off of the original Cream jailbreak tweak, brings custom colored CC toggles to iOS 10 (free – review)

Creamless: Removes the coloring from the Control Center toggle buttons (free – review)

CustomCarrier (iOS 10): Lets to customize the carrier text in iOS 10 (free)

Cuddlefish: Tints the 3D Touch menu background via the Home screen based on the app’s color (free – review)

Disclose (iOS 10): Lets you swipe up to close the Define view (free)

ForceInPicture: Enables Picture in picture mode on unsupported devices (free – review)

NoWallpaperGray: Disables wallpaper dimming when choosing a white wallpaper on iOS 10 (free)

Reddit – No Blur on NSFW Media: Removes the blur on NSFW media in the reddit app & more (free)

StatusFolder: Shows the Status Bar inside of Folders (free – review)

StatusSwitcher: Adds the Status Bar to the App Switcher in iOS 10 (free – review)

VKPass: Lets you protect your VK with passcode and Touch ID (free)

That wraps it up for this week, but based on where things are going, jailbreak tweak releases may actually start to kick back up again. This will especially be the case when Luca Todesco’s iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak comes out of beta and more users begin using it.

Just as a reminder, we wouldn’t recommend using the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak until it comes out of beta, because if anything goes wrong, Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.1.1 and there would be no way to go back.

To learn about even more jailbreak tweaks, stay tuned to iDB for the latest and check out last week’s jailbreak tweak roundup to see if you may have missed anything previously.

11 Essential Tips For Macos Users Coming To Windows

If you’ve been a long (or even lifelong) user of macOS and now find yourself in the wonderful world of Windows, things are very different! In a broad sense, Windows and macOS aren’t that different. Most things work more or less the same and are intuitive. However, there are a few things to know about being a daily Windows user that can make the transition a lot smoother, as we shall see below.

1. Pay Special Attention to Cyber Security

It’s a myth that macOS doesn’t have any viruses or other malware. Still, it is much less of a concern than on Windows. On macOS, users enjoy some protection thanks to how small the macOS install base is. Malware creators are more likely to target the largest group of users, and that’s Windows.

Image source:


Windows has a built-in antivirus package called Windows Defender, which is perfectly fine for most users. However, it’s a good idea to change your cybersecurity habits to reflect how much more Windows malware is out there.

In particular, it’s a good idea to scan every piece of software you download from unknown sources. We suggest using VirusTotal for small apps and utilities. The website checks against a massive number of virus detection engines.

There’s no real reason to defer macOS updates. Since Apple is in control of both the hardware and software, you know that every update has been tested on a computer that’s identical to the Mac you’re using.

The same is not true of Windows, which is an open platform. There’s an infinite number of hardware combinations for Windows PCs. So it’s not uncommon for Windows updates to cause problems for some percentage of people.

With the exception of security updates, we recommend holding off on installing major updates in Windows for a day or two, so that any major issue will be reported. Once you know there aren’t any worrisome bugs in the latest Windows update, you can go ahead and install it. As always, do make sure your most important data is backed up.

4. Virtual Desktops Span All Screens

In macOS, each display has its own virtual desktops that can change independently of other desktops. In Windows, every monitor shares the same desktop. When you change to another virtual desktop, all of the screens change in unison.

Press Win + Tab to bring up “Task View”, and you can drag applications to different virtual desktops. It’s not as elegant as macOS, but it’s functional.

5. Splitting Your Screen Uses Gestures

In Windows 11, you can also hover the mouse pointer over the Maximize button (which is like the macOS “Zoom” button) and arrange a window into a variety of layouts.

6. You Need to Uninstall Apps Not Delete Them

In macOS, application management is very simple. When you install an app from a .dmg file or from the App Store, it goes to your “Applications” folder in “Finder”. If you want to delete the app, you just drag it to the “Bin”.

In Windows, you can’t just delete an app like this! First of all, applications aren’t condensed into a single package. There’s an executable file along with numerous resource files that it requires to run. Windows also has a “Registry” which records all the applications installed on the system.

7. Menus Are Attached to Apps

In macOS, there’s a unified menu bar at the top of the screen that changes depending on which app window is active. In Windows, every app has its own menu bar that moves with the app window.

This takes a little getting used to, but in a way, it makes more sense than macOS’s approach.

8. Windows Key Shortcuts Are Worth Learning

You’ve probably noticed the keyboard key with the Windows logo on it by now. Pressing it opens the Start Menu, which is where you can access everything that’s not on the “Task Bar”.

Image source: Pixabay

This little key is far more useful than that! There are numerous useful Windows key combinations. We’ve already covered Win + Tab for “Task view”, here are a few additional great ones:

Win + E – opens file explorer (which is like Finder).

Win + D – displays your desktop.

Win + Pause – opens System Properties.

Win + P – cycles through external display options.

Win + L – locks your computer.

Win + G – brings up the Windows Game Bar.

There are many more! Once you’ve memorized the most useful ones, you’ll be zipping through Windows on muscle memory alone.

9. The Task Bar is (Sort Of) Your Dock

The “Task Bar” is home to the “Notification Area” (where the clock and status icons are) as well as the “Start” button. However, it can also act in a similar way to the macOS dock.

10. There’s No Time Machine Equivalent Built In

Time Machine is one of the best features of macOS, giving you a granular, integrated backup solution. While Windows has System Restore, a backup utility, and offers paid OneDrive could backup syncing, there’s no direct equivalent to Time Machine.

Image source:


If you’ve relied on Time Machine on your Mac, you’ll want to look into third-party solutions to get a similar level of data protection and convenience in Windows.

11. Always Write Down Blue Screen Error Codes (And Don’t Panic)

Because it has to run on so many different hardware configurations and uses drivers from multiple hardware makers, Windows tends to crash more often than macOS. The worst type of hard crash is commonly referred to as a BSoD (Blue Screen of Death), although that’s not an official term.

BSODs can be scary! But if you encounter one it’s always a good idea to write down any error codes. You can even take a snap of the screen with your smartphone. It usually only takes a quick web search (or the Make Teach Easier website) to find a list of common solutions for the issue.

The Joy of Windows

While it’s popular for fans of either Windows or macOS to pit the platforms against each other, modern iterations of either OS have a lot in common. After all, the development teams from each side are happy to copy the best innovations from each other.

Learning Windows as a Mac user can feel like a steep curve. However, once you’re in that Windows mindset, it’ll all come together beautifully.

The Best Keyboards For Ios 8

For the past two-and-a-half weeks, I’ve been checking out the top third-party keyboard apps for iOS 8. Hopefully, my first-look reviews have helped some of our readers to figure out which one is the perfect match for them. Maybe you’ve already tried them all yourself and don’t need my opinion.

If you prefer your layout to be as similar to Apple’s stock keyboard as possible while still having a different look then this is your best bet. The keys are in all the right places, but you can choose from eight different colors. Plus, the nifty quick response feature makes it possible for you to send common phrases with one tap. My favorite feature is the spacebar cursor. Swipe your finger across the spacebar to the left or right to scroll through letters. This keyboard is available for free.


After testing more than half-a-dozen different types of keyboards, my favorite has to be Swype. It has a smooth swipe-to-type option, but also allows for tap typing. The five different skins are more than just colors. They are images. The predictive word suggestion is incredible and the keyboard will remember new words in the future. The auto-correct works nearly perfectly every time. One especially nice feature is that you don’t have to allow full access for the keyboard to work on your device. Everything you do is stored locally. This keyboard is available for $0.99.

MyScript Stack

If handwriting is your game, then this app is where it is at. With it, you can literally handwrite all of your words. All you have to do is start scribbling on the blank board and this app will identify the letter and transfer it to the document. The auto-correct and predictive word suggestion will help you if your handwriting is terrible. You can also change the color of the “ink.” It definitely isn’t good for those looking to write quickly. Typing is just faster. However, it sure is fun to show off to your friends. This keyboard is available for free.


This keyboard companion app makes it possible for you to prewrite what you want to say and then use the template to respond with one tap. In the app, fill out your TextBoards with standard text like, “Dear Mom, I need to borrow money again this month.” Then, open up a document you wish to type into, like email, and tap the template card. Everything in the TextBoard will appear in the document with one tap. You can also enter your personal information to use as quick fills for website forms. This keyboard is available for $1.99.

If you prefer screen space to keyboard space, you will love this layout. The entire keyboard can be squished down to two rows, no joke. In order to offer such an amazing feature and still make it possible for people to actually type words, the developers worked painstakingly hard to deliver the absolute best auto-correct engine. It has, by far; the best auto-correct I’ve tested. When reduced to two rows, the app will figure out what word you are probably trying to type and even offer it up ahead of time with predictive suggestions. This keyboard is on sale for $1.99.

SwiftKey’s focus is on coming up with the most personalized predictive word suggestions possible. When you sign into the cloud feature and log into Facebook, the app will automatically recognize words you use regularly. So, if you tend to use the phrase, “Let’s get drunk tonight,” a lot, the app will offer you that phrase as predictive word suggestions as soon as you type the letter “L.” Because it stores your typing habits in the cloud, you can use the app on multiple devices and it will work seamlessly across them all. This app is available for free.

Take the tap out of typing and replace it with gestures and you’ll get Flesky. Thanks to the gesture-based features, the app has been recognized by Guinness as the world record holder for fastest touch-screen text messaging. You can swipe to space and swipe to delete words. You can also swipe up or down to switch between different predictive word options. Swipe with two fingers to minimize the screen. Switch between letters and numbers by holding down a key to get additional options. It comes with six bright colors and you can add six more with an in-app purchase. This app is available for $0.99.
