iOS 9 Cydia Tweaks TouchID iPhone 6S

TouchID on iPhone 5s is equal to Siri on iPhone 4s regarding the most-popular characteristic covered by technology sites like us. The fingerprint security system is, as Walt Mossberg set it, among the very first & most successful huge, consumer-oriented implementations of biometric security.

By The Way, thats about all that it can perform for now.

1. AppLocker

AppLocker is really a pretty old tweak that has been upgraded lately to support TouchID-empowered password system. To people who arent comfortable with it, AppLocker locks your programs (shields them). You cant open the programs until you put in the passcode. With all the recent upgrade, it is possible to make use of a documented fingerprint rather than entering the passcode.

AppLockers functionality extends to the Settings page also it kicks in using the authentication condition when you attempt deleting programs.

AppLocker is on the ModMyi repo for $0.99 and is the most economical of all accessible TouchID program lockers.

2. BioProtect

BioProtect is the primary iPhone 5s-special TouchID Cydia tweak to deal with program security. BioProtect totally relies on TouchID when you open programs. The first start had some overheating issue that has been caused, apparently, as a result of an incessant cartoon. I believe the problem was fixed with all the upgrade. BioProtect is great but you should check out BioLockDown overly before jumping for this one.

BioProtect costs $2.99 and is accessible on BigBoss.

3. BioLockDown

BioLockDown is Ryans variation of BioProtect with more characteristics as well as a more affordable cost. BioLockDown functions quite similarly to the latter. Interestingly, it’s not only programs that you can lockdown. It is also possible to control / shield the Control Center toggles as well as the different elements of the Settings program with BioLockDown. Thats one component which this tweak reaches a lot more than other tweaks up to now.

4. Touchy

Should you take away the security feature out of TouchID and believe outside the domain of passwords and protection, the fingerprint detector could be used to do other things. Among the best executions is Touchy which maps fingerprints to programs. Thus, when you simply put your finger in the detector, it opens a pre-chosen program. Kind of cool, correct?

Touch is yet to start (on BigBoss repo with the intro cost of $1.99).

5. Virtual House

Virtual House is a house button emulator. Rather than pressing the house button, you simply put your finger to the house button and following a short pause, your iPhone 5s reacts as if youve pressed the house button. Therefore, it kind of understands whether you happen to be making use of your fingerprint to authenticate or to mimic pressing the house button. It may be somewhat tricky to get it functioning right.

Tweaking Notification Center

Considering the fact that most of your iPhone operating time is centered on notifications and the delivery option is having a high impact on your iOS experience, we decided that it’s about time to write an article that will address this matter.

You could say that apps run great in full screen mode, but sometimes you wish to know what notifications appear while you’re gaming. If this is the case, a new tweak called StatusTab has been made available that will allow you to swipe where the clock should be if you had the notification bar present and will allow you a quick peek at your notifications. Swiping anywhere else will make the notification bar disappear. You can download StatusTab for free in Cydia, the BigBoss repo.

TorchNC is the kind of tweak that will place a shortcut in your Notification Center that will grant you instant acces to your iOS device camera flash. You will be able to turn the flash on and off according to your own will.



InstaSnap is a tweak that adds a shortcut in the Notification Center that allows you to access the phone’s camera from within Instagram. This works perfectly with both iPhone and iPod Touch.


Another simple jailbreak tweak that adds extreme functionality is Fade. Its function is to force dim on Home Screen elements when you access the Notification Center. When you slide the Notification Center back up, the effect is reversed.

For the iPad users that wish to enhance the accessibility of their devices, a new tweak has been made available that allows users to adjust the length of their Notification Center in both portrait and Landscape Mode.

The first thing on your list should be the unnecessary content that Cydia shows. You can do that from the Changes tab by limiting content in some sections. You can do that by hitting the edit button in the Sections tab and turning off some sections that you’re not interested in, and by pressing Done. For your information, the sections that create the most undesired content are themes and ringtones.

In order to speed up Cydia a good procedure would be to clear the cache. Adding wrong or corrupt sources might give you a head ache when you’ll try to remove it. You can do all that by following these easy steps:

  1. Go to /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d and delete the files with the repository present in the filename.  Open and edit cydia.list and delete the lines that have the repos url. Then save it.
  2. In /private/var/lib/apt/list delete the files with the repos name found in its filename.
  3. In /private/var/lib/apt/list/partial delete all the files that have repositories name present in the filename.
  4. Now go to /private/var/lib/cydia and open for editing metadata.plist and find the line with the repos name present and delete them. Now save the file.

 Basically this will ensure your Cydia will work smoothly on you device.
