What are some must-have Cydia tweaks for iOS 11?

30. MusicBar 

MusicBar adds a minimalistic music bar that adds the currently playing song under an app or dock.

You can activate it by pressing the volume up button and tap it again to make it disappear. Its only downside is that the pause button present in the bar doesn’t work.

If you are an audiophile or just want to listen to your music without interruptions, you would definitely want to install this tweak on your iPhone.

29. IGDarkMode

IGDarkMode (previously called Unlit) brings a dark mode for the Instagram app for iOS and makes it go “unlit”.

It looks perfect regardless of whether you use it on an OLED screen (iPhone X) or an LCD screen (iPhone 8 plus or below).

If you are a heavy smartphone user – the kind that often stays awake late at night – this tweak should be a part of your iOS 11 jailbreak setup.

  • Developer – Chloe Kuznetsov
  • Repo – Packix
  • Price – Free

28.  Facebook Dark Mode

Facebook Dark Mode adds a stunning dark mode theme to the Facebook app for iOS.

What sets it apart from other tweaks is its roster of multiple addon themes that let you tailor the dark mode to your liking.

If you tend to network with peers or check the latest memes out during the wee hours, this Facebook Dark Mode is an absolute must-have.

27. Artsy 

Artsy adds artwork to the now playing view in the Music app, Control Center, lock screen, and the Spotify app for iOS.

  • Repo – mdaus.ch/repo
  • Price – Free

26. Jumper

Jumper lets you easily jump to an app straight from the lock screen. iOS 11 comes with two stock quick launch icons – camera and flashlight – that are not customizable.

These icons only waste that precious screen real estate considering you can access camera just by swiping left.

I would recommend installing Jumper if you would like to enable quick access for certain applications such as Snapchat and WhatsApp.

  • Developer – Neo Ighodaro
  • Repo – Packix
  • Price – $1.99

25. tweakCompatible

tweakCompatible is a game-changing tweak that lets you check the compatibility status of a tweak on-the-fly. It relies on user reviews to ascertain the compatibility.

 

All you need to do is install its Debian package from BigBoss. Once you install it, it will let you know whether or not the tweak you want to install is compatible with your device.

  • Repo – BigBoss

24. MitushaXI

MitushaXI adds a stunning Jell-O wave equalizer to the stock Music app just like the good old Winamp media player.

You can fully customize each and every aspect of the equalizer from its preferences.

The new version brings support for iOS 11.3.1 along with stability improvements and Artsy support. If you haven’t installed it on your iPhone or iPad yet, you are definitely missing out!

  • Repo – ominous.cf/repo
  • Price – Free

23. DarkMessages

DarkMessages enables the dark theme in the stock Messages app. What’s more, it also works with QuickReply and changes the theme on-the-fly using Noctis or NightShift.

AudioRecorder 2 is the only and by far the best call recorder available for iOS right now.

It comes loaded with tons of activation gestures, sharing options, supports Telephony, FaceTime, WhatsApp, Messenger, other services and tons of other features.

21. Notchless

Notchless removes the notch from iPhone X’s display. It doesn’t come with any customization, it gets to work as soon as you install it on your iPhone X.

Although average users tend to love the all-new iPhone X notch, jailbreak enthusiasts hate it with a passion! If you loathe the notch too, give Notchless a whirl.

  • Repo – https://member.sparkservers.co.uk/repo
  • Price – Members Plus subscription

20. Pikabu

Pikabu replaces the stock iOS volume HUD with a single volume bar in your status bar.

The developer offers two versions – Lite and Premium. The lite version with a minimalistic volume HUD in the notch or status bar.

The Premium version, on the other hand, gives you unlimited customization options and lets you place the HUD anywhere on the screen.

If you aren’t a big fan of the stock volume HUD that takes up the entire display, this tweak is a must-have.

BlackOutCC, as its name suggests, blacks out the Control Center. In other words, it adds a true dark theme to the stock Control Center of iOS 11.

InteliX backports the grouped notification feature in iOS 12 to iOS 11 firmware. It is compatible with quite a few other notification tweaks and lets you customize the grouped notification style too.

  • Repo – Packix
  • Price – $1.99

12. BetterCCXI

BetterCCXI is a solid Control Center enhancement for Apple devices running iOS 11. It lets you customize the Music and Connectivity controls in a number of ways.

  • Developer – Laughing Quoll
  • Repo – Packix
  • Price – $1.00

10. 0vigilate

0vigilate patches the legendary Palert Cydia tweak and makes it compatible with iOS 11 and above versions. For the uninitiated, Palert brings stunning Apple TV-inspired alerts to iOS.

If you are all about making your iPhone look nice, missing out on 0vigilate will be a cardinal sin.

9. BioProtect X

BioProtect X is by far the best security tweak developed for iOS 11.

It allows you to lock apps, photos, games, camera, and pretty much anything you can think of with Touch ID or a passcode. iPhone X users can make use of Face ID instead of relying on Touch ID.

Apart from its basic security features, it comes with loads upon loads of customization options.

Even though a lot of security tweaks have disappeared into depths of Cydia, BioProtect by Elias Limneos is still going strong and is considered a must-have tweak by many. For the best effect, use it alongside 0vigilate or Palert.

  • Developer – Elias Limneos
  • Repo – limneos.net/repo/
  • Price – $2.99

8. Eclipse X (iOS 11)

Eclipse X brings a stunning system-wide dark mode to iOS 11.

It supports all stock apps (Messages, Stocks, Books, Safari, Podcasts, Phone, etc), user interface elements (status bar, lock screen, etc) and all third-party applications that you may install on your device.

Eclipse also has a nice collection of dark mode themes that you can enable to customize the overall aesthetic of your dark mode setup.

Eclipse X

Its only downside is that it doesn’t apply the dark mode properly in some stock apps.

Heavy nighttime users should definitely take this tweak for a test drive. If you want to give Eclipse a miss, go for its competitor NoctisXI, which works equally well.

  • Developer – Guillermo Morán
  • Repo – Packix
  • Price – $1.00

7. ShortLook

ShortLook brings a stunning new Notification interface for iOS 11 with tons of customization features. It displays your notifications when your screen is turned off.

It takes full advantage of iPhone X’s OLED display and displays your notifications with a pure black background. Older devices, too, can make use of this notification style with a blurred background.

ShortLook doesn’t just make your notifications look cool, it also manages them intelligently on-the-fly.

If you receive multiple notifications from a single app, it automatically coalesces them together with badge indicator and other effects.

Though a bit on the expensive side, ShortLook does have a premium feel to it. Be sure to get it if you have some spare cash lying around.

6. Nine

Nine ports the good old iOS 9 Notification Center to devices running iOS 11 firmware.

Not only does it modify the Notification Center, but it also gives you an ample amount of customization options to take your setup to the next level. Nine also backports the notification banners present in iPhone X to older models.

The upcoming version of this tweak will also feature a widget view, grouped notification support, and much more.

Nine is a tweak that has a premium feel to it while still being free at the same time. If you are using Electra jailbreak, this tweak is simply unmissable.

LittleX backports iPhone X features and gestures to non-iPhone X devices.

Everything from the quick launch icons to app-close gestures will now be a part of your iPhone 8 or older device.

Xen HTML brings unified HTML rendering support to iOS, thus allowing you to install and run amazing HTML-based widgets.

It lets you theme your lock screen and home screen with its wide selection of widgets.

Xen HTML was a paid tweak and rightfully so considering the amount of work that went into it. However, it went free this year as its developer decided to finally quit jailbreak tweak development.

Ever since it the developer made it free, it experienced a resurgence in popularity and a lot of third-party widgets have been released since then.
