iOS 11 Jailbreak Tweaks Update: Dozen iOS 11 Features Borrowed From Jailbreak Tweaks; Smart Invert Dark Mode, One-Handed Keyboard, And More
iPhone users who have jailbroken their devices are able to enjoy features and tweaks that others can't as the jailbreak tweaks allow the users to do things on their device that other users wouldn't otherwise be able to do. However, Apple has borrowed some exciting features from the jailbreak community.
Jailbreak Tweaks Update: iOS 11 Features Borrowed From Jailbreak Tweaks
According to Value Walk, when Apple unveiled iOS 11 at WWDC, augmented reality, peer-to-peer payments, and a smarter Siri attracted much of the limelight. The iOS 11 has many features inspired by jailbreak tweaks that have been around for a long time.
Here's a list of all the iOS 11 features that were borrowed:
- Moving Multiple Icons Simultaneously On Home screen:
Currently, the iPhone users can move only one app icon at a time from one page to another. With iOS 11, Apple will finally allow users to move multiple app icons on the Home screen simultaneously. Jailbreak users have for a long time been using tweaks like MultiIconMover and MultiActions to move multiple app icons on their iDevices, as reported by Redmond Pie.
- Smart Invert Dark Mode:
One of the new iOS 11 features is the Smart Invert system-wide dark mode. It eases the strain on the user's eyes when using the phone in the dark.
The feature is almost identical to tweaks like Noctis and Eclipse. There is so much similarity between Smart Invert and Noctis that Noctis developer doesn't plan to update their tweak for iOS 11 even if a jailbreak for the OS appears later this year.
- More App Icons In iPad Dock:
The iOS 11 allows users to add more icons to their iPad dock. It is similar to a jailbreak tweak called Harbor that offers a macOS-inspired dock for iOS so that iPad users can add more icons to the dock.
- One-Handed Keyboard:
People using larger phones like iPhone 7 Plus have trouble typing one-handed. If they try one-handed typing, they risk dropping the handset. Users with smaller hands face the same problem even with the 4.7-inch iPhone 7.
However, the iOS 11 brings a new one-handed keyboard. This is similar to tweaks like OneHanded and OneHandWizard.
The 4-inch display was most suitable for one-handed typing. Apple took into consideration the 4-inch display to design the one-handed keyboard.
When active, it shifts the keys a little closer to each other. Hence, it moves them to the left or right of the screen.
