25 iPhone tweaks that will make you want to jailbreak your phone

Apple fans celebrated in droves earlier this week as a new iOS jailbreak was finally released for the most recent versions of Apple’s mobile platform, including the brand new iOS 9.3.3. It’s not a perfect solution and it isn’t a true untethered jailbreak, but it works very well and it’s very easy to apply. In fact, as we explained in a recent post, you don’t even have to connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 and other recent versions. Instead, you can do the whole thing on your device quickly and easily using a special web-based tool accessible in mobile Safari.

Jailbreaking is easy indeed, but is it worthwhile? Wait, don’t answer that question just yet. Check out the 25 hot iOS tweaks covered below first, and then decide.

MUST SEE: As an iPhone user, I couldn’t be more jealous of Google’s newest Android feature

Why bother jailbreaking these days? iOS has gained so much new functionality over the years. And with iOS 10 on the horizon, iPhone and iPad users are about to get even more hot new features. Of course, Apple still limits much of what third-party app developers can do with their software, so jailbreaking is the only way to gain features that would be otherwise blocked from iOS devices.
