Apple wants their devices to never leave the closed ecosystem. And, you know the scope for customization on iDevices are slim, don’t you? That’s why people who migrate from Android to iOS find it difficult to get along for at least a few days.
What if you want to gain an advanced level of customization? Well, that’s when you have to jump into jailbreaking. It is the process of escalating privileges of an Apple device for the purpose of removing software restrictions imposed by the manufacturer (Wikipedia).
Once you have a jailbroken iPhone, you will get access to tons of features that a regular unit doesn’t possess. However, you can’t rely upon a single tool to jailbreak all the iOS versions because Apple does fix vulnerabilities with each release.
In case you don’t know, checkra1n has gone live a few days ago, using which you can jailbreak iOS 13. And, we already reported about a few tweaks to enable brightness sensitive dark mode, iPhone X gestures, Deep Fusion and Night mode on older phones running iOS 13.
Let’s rewind the time to iOS 10 days! There was a tweak named Apex that helped users organise home screen icons on the platform. From iOS 11, a rewritten version of the same tweak went popular, with the name Zenith.
Zenith lets your create “stacks” of icons on your homescreen. Simply swipe up or down on any app icon to reveal its sub-apps. Here you can select any apps you want to add behind it and those apps will now be unobtrusively peeking out from behind your central app. All you have to do to edit an existing stack is to press-and-hold on the central icon when that stack is expanded and you can edit any existing sub-apps or add new ones.
Configure options from Settings.
Good news is, now you can have the same feature set on iOS 13! The developer of this tweak has added support for the latest version of iOS.
The iOS 13 version of Zenith has just gone live on Packix repo. However, you need to pay $2 to get your hands on it. Apart from extending the support for iOS 13, the latest version reduces lags and crashes.
