iOS 11 Features Apple Copied From Jailbreak Tweaks On Cydia
Here are thirteen iOS 11 features that Apple copied from various jailbreak tweaks available on the Cydia store.
All the talk right now is about Apple’s unveiling of iOS 11 during its WWDC 2017 opening keynote, but for all the new features that have been added as part of this upcoming release, so many of them feel eerily familiar. That is probably because, just as with other releases of iOS in the past, it seems that a lot of Apple’s inspiration has come from jailbreak tweaks that have been around for some time.
This is a pattern that has repeated itself for years now, going all the way back to before iOS was even called iOS. Those who jailbreak have been able to use some truly impressive tweaks, adding functionality and features to a stock iOS experience that just couldn’t cut the mustard for years. With iOS 11, yet more jailbreak tweaks, or the functionality they bring, have found their way into Apple’s version of what the iPhone and iPad should be capable of. Below, we are going to outline some of the tweaks that we think Apple may have taken some ideas from, and while we don’t think for a minute anyone inside Apple is looking to Cydia for inspiration, it is interesting to see that Apple continues to add more features that jailbreaking power-users have been demanding or using for years.
Let’s jump in, shall we?
