Are you jailbroken on iOS 10? If yes, then we have got some really nice homescreen tweaks for you that will allow you to add more features to the homescreen and personalize the whole experience. Although the tweaks work with iOS 10 without any problems they are also compatible with iOS 9 and iOS 8 if you are running older versions of the operating system on your iPhone or iPad. So without any further ado read on to learn about what these hacks do.
Cuttlefish tweak is named after the Cuttlefish that changes its color according to its surroundings. The tweak when installed does something similar with the background blur that appears behind the 3D shortcut menu. When you access a 3D Touch menu on a 3D Touch enabled iPhone, Cuttlefish will turn the background color to match the dominant color of that app’s homescreen icon. So if you access the 3D Touch menu of Facebook the blur would appear blueish where as it will turn greenish when Messages app’s 3D Touch menu is opened. Since it uses the app’s icon color to choose the blur color it is very likely that you will see a different blur for most of your applications. Cuttlefish is available in Cydia for free and supports iOS 10 and iOS 9.

There are some trigger options that you can enable or disable according to your liking. Evanesco tweak is compatible with iOS 10 jailbreak. It also works with iOS 9 and iOS 8. You can download it for free from Cydia.
