ReachAll tweak

The new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus bring a new feature called Reachability, which makes it easier for users to reach the top part of iOS by pulling it down through Touch ID. The feature is exclusive to the new devices, however a new Cydia tweak for iOS 8 called ReachAll makes it possible for users of older iPhones to have the very same functionality on their smartphones. ReachAll tweak adds the native Reachability feature to unsupported models, which means the working of the hack is same as that of the original function.

On iPhone 5s users can invoke Reachability by double tapping on the Touch ID, which is same as it is done on iPhone 6. On devices that don’t have Touch ID such as iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c users can tap on an on-screen box to pull the UI down.

The implementation on older devices isn’t as good as on iPhone 5s and that’s why the developer has promised the integration of Activator in the next update. With Activator support you will be able to assign action or gesture of your choice to invoke Reachability. From the preference page users can enable or disable the tweak as well as change the size and appearance of the tap box.

While we are not fans of the Reachability feature of iPhones it is still nice to see jailbreak developers giving a way for users to have features on their devices that are only available to newer models.

ReachAll tweak is available in Cydia for free. It requires iOS 8 or above.

If you are on iOS 7 you can use Reachability7 tweak.
