Get iOS 11 features on iOS 10 with these 15 Cydia tweaks

iOS 10 is now jailbroken on almost all devices and, naturally, users want a backport for all iOS 11 features. Here’s how you can make iOS 11 look exactly like iOS 10 without updating your device.

How can you get iOS 11 features on iOS 10?

Quite a few developers like LaughinQuoll and AntiqueDev took up the challenge of backporting iOS 11 features.

The duo released the “Eleven” series of jailbreak tweaks geared towards iOS 10 users who want the iOS 11 experience without upgrading.

Other developers also released several similar tweaks pertaining to specific components of iOS 11.

Unfortunately, a lot of features from iPhone X are still missing. These features are really difficult to implement and it’s unlikely they will ever be ported to iOS 10.

iOS 11 features on iOS 10

Thankfully enough, almost all devices on iOS 10 can be jailbroken with existing tools. If you don’t have a jailbreak, you can use any of the following tools.

Once you jailbreak your Apple device, start downloading the tweaks given below and update without updating. Remember, a lot of these jailbreak tweaks also support iOS 9 so you can try them on older models as well.

How to make iOS 10 look like iOS 11 with Cydia tweaks   

1. ControlCenterXI

ControlCenterXI was the first tweak to port the iOS 11 Control Center to iOS 10. It is developed by LaughingQuoll.

This tweak was originally a part of the “Eleven” series. However, the developer ceased development and began working on Maize instead.

Here’s how this tweak looks like in action.

  • Source – BigBoss
  • Price – $1.50
  • Compatibility – iOS 8-10

2. Maize (ControlCenterXI alternative)

Maize is the best iOS 11 Control Center port till date. It is developed by Andrew Wiik alongside LaughinQuoll.

It feels as if it’s a carbon copy of the stock Control Center and even replicates the 3D touch functions and animations perfectly. Here’s what sets it apart from other similar tweaks.

  • Stock animations
  • Custom modules
  • Compatible with other Control Center tweaks
  • Additional module support

You can download Maize Cydia tweak from BigBoss source. It is compatible with iOS 10.

  • Source – BigBoss
  • Price – $3.00
  • Compatibility – iOS 10

3. ScreenshotXI

ScreenshotXI brings iOS 11’s amazing new screenshot feature to iOS 10. It is developed by tweak developer DGh0st.

In vanilla iOS 10, you can’t edit the screenshots after taking them. iOS 11 features a revamped screenshot system that allows users to edit, cropping, add annotations, etc in real time.

ScreenshotXI ports all these features to iOS 10 except for cropping.

Here’s a video demonstration of this tweak.

You can grab this tweak from the official BigBoss repository for $1.00. It is compatible with iOS 9 and 10.

  • Source – BigBoss
  • Price – $1.00
  • Compatibility – iOS 9-10

4. DockXI

DockXI, as its name suggests, backports the iOS 11 dock to iOS 10. It is developed by tweak developer XC Xiao.

It draws inspiration from the floating iOS 11 dock that Apple implemented specifically for iPad. The non-iPad version of iOS 11 comes with a normal dock that doesn’t float.

It’s not a part of the “Eleven” project despite its name.

You can grab DockXI from BigBoss Cydia source for free. It only supports iOS 10 firmware.

  • Source – BigBoss
  • Price – Free
  • Compatibility – iOS 10

5. LockscreenXI

LockscreenXI ports the stock iOS 11 passcode screen and the music player to iOS 10. It is developed by LaughinQuoll and is a part of the “Eleven”  project.

What makes it stand out from the stock version is its ability to shrink the music player.

VideoPlayerXI ports the media controls in iOS 11 back to iOS 10. It is developed by LaughingQuoll and a part of the “Eleven” series.

While it’s not a carbon copy of iOS 11’s native media controls, it’s the only option you have. Apart from a few glitches, it works just as well as the stock feature.

8. Eclipse 4

Eclipse 4 is a user-favorite that brings a full-blown dark mode to the stock iOS operating system. It is developed by Guillermo Moran.

Surprisingly, iOS 11 doesn’t have a stock “night mode” or “dark mode” so this tweak is a bit overkill.

iOS 11 does, however, include an “invert colors” function, which is as close you can get to a dark mode.

GIFRoll is yet another important jailbreak tweak for iOS 10 users. It adds native GIF support to your camera roll and is developed by Sklikas.

For those who don’t know, iOS 11 has inbuilt support for viewing GIF files. This is something that’s missing from iOS 10 despite repeated requests by users.
