With more and more tweaks becoming available on Cydia with support for iOS 7 it could become hard to keep track of them all and very messy if you install all of them on your device. When deciding to install a tweak on your iPhone or iPad you should consider multiple factors regarding how this tweak will benefit you without affecting the overall performance of iOS.

Today we have some really nice tweaks to tell you about that bring useful features to the system. Some of them fix the software’s quirks while others add both powerful and useful features to it.


SBPowerAlert tweak

Apple does not allow Siri and Voice Control activated simultaneously. This means you have to choose from either one of these voice assistants. While Siri is a more advanced and feature-full assistant it is online only. On the other hand Voice Control works with or without internet connection.

Assistant Unrestrictor tweak allows users to enable both of these voice assistants on their device so they could take advantage of Siri when they are connected to the internet and still be able to use Voice Control when they are offline. It is a useful tweak that will be appreciated by users. You can get it for free from Cydia.


The CustomLS tweak brings a handful of features all of which are for the lockscreen. After installing this tweak users can hide the camera grabber, Control Center grabber, Notification Center grabber, hide the ‘Slide to Unlock’ text as well as hide the lockscreen clock.

But that’s not all as CustomLS also allows users to replace the ‘Slide to Unlock’ text with custom text of their choice. All of these options are available through the Settings app and no icons are placed on the homescreen. You can grab CustomLS for free, too.


Many users run out of battery instantly after the first low battery warning because they forget about taking extra measures such as reducing device’s brightness or turning off WiFi or Bluetooth. Turning these things off can greatly increase the time your device can run after giving you the first warning to recharge. For those of you who have this problem BatterySafe tweak is here to rescue.

This tweak allows users to specify a percentage of remaining battery at which user will be prompted to take measures to preserve the remaining charge. You can download it for free.
