3D Touch Display

This tweak is jam-packed with colorization options for your 3D Touch menus

One of the things Apple included on devices with the 3D Touch display is the ability to use a firm press gesture on an app icon to reveal a bevy of app shortcuts right from the Home screen. While this is useful, the menus have always looked pretty bland.

A jailbreak tweak called 3DColorChanger10 by gilsharhar7 fixes this problem by offering a myriad of comprehensive customization options that dwarf any tweak in its department.

This tweak lets you use a 3D Touch gesture to clear app icons badges

Anyone looking for a quicker way of dismissing unwanted notification badges from their app icons without having to open the app in question might want to turn their attention to a new free jailbreak tweak release called ClearBadges3DTouch10 by HiDaN.

As the self-explanatory name implies, this tweak is intended to give you a way to remove notification badges from your apps with a 3D Touch gesture.

BlurTouchClean removes the blur from your Home screen’s 3D Touch menu backgrounds

Anyone with a 3D Touch-enabled device is likely familiar with the bevy of menu options that can be revealed by imposing a simple 3D Touch gesture on apps from the Home screen.

Whenever one of these 3D Touch menus is revealed, iOS blurs the background to draw your focus to the menu, but a new free jailbreak tweak called BlurTouchClean by CydiaGeek can remove the blur effect so you can continue to see everything residing behind the menu.

This tweak removes the “Share This App” option from 3D Touch app shortcuts

When Apple initially started adding support for 3D Touch to apps on the Home screen in iOS 9, there were some that supported the feature, and some that didn’t. Then came iOS 10, where Apple attempted to make the feature more ‘useful’ for apps that didn’t utilize 3D Touch in creative ways by adding the “Share This App” menu option to those apps.

Because a lot of people don’t need or want to share their apps, and because it feels like unnecessary clutter to even have this menu option there in the first place, a new free jailbreak tweak called NoSharePlz by Olxios&Nico is now available in Cydia to remove it once and for all.

iOS 10 tidbit: 3D Touch the flashlight toggle to choose an intensity

Apple originally introduced Control Center in iOS 7, which was their way of answering both the competition on multiple Android platforms and the jailbreak community in one fell swoop.

With iOS 10, which Apple announced at the WWDC 2016 Keynote this week, Apple has shown off some obvious changes to Control Center, including a modular paged navigation design and different color tones and styles.

Of course, aesthetic wasn’t the only change. Apple also made the flashlight toggle button from Control Center a whole lot more useful as well.
