Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are going to add some fantastic new features to the company’s smartphone lineup, but there are some great features iPhones will never have out of the box. It’s not because Apple wants people to miss out on these experiences, per se, but rather that Apple focuses on features that will appeal to the broadest range of users.

Of course, that’s why we have the jailbreak community.

Jailbreak developers fill in every gap they can think of when it comes to features and functionality that may be considered missing from iOS. Apple’s new iOS 9 software will add a wide range of new functions to the mobile platform when it’s released next month, but there are so many more features users are looking for that will still be absent from iPhones and iPads once the new release is made available.

That’s why we always try to highlight great jailbreak apps and tweaks. This way, people know all of their options.

Jailbreaking certainly isn’t for everyone. In fact, we strongly recommend against jailbreaking for users who aren’t particularly savvy. If you’re willing to accept the risks that come along with jailbreaking, though — and if you’re willing to accept a fairly substantial hit to your battery life — then check out the latest batch of 10 awesome jailbreak tweaks highlighted by iCrackUriDevice’s Tanner Marsh.
