The Best Pokemon Go For iOS Cheats, Tweaks, Tips [Guide]

You will have had to have been living under a rock for the last few weeks or months to not have realized that developer Niantic has started a gaming phenomenon with Pokémon Go augmented reality game. Built using Unity 3D, the interactive augmented reality based game has managed to pull in millions of worldwide users in what seems to be a very small amount of time.

The game itself is addictive enough, but you can always rely on the community to release additional packages to make it ever more entertaining. We will be looking at the best iPhone and iPad tweaks, tips and cheats available right now, with some of them requiring users to be jailbroken.



If you are keen to get involved in the interesting and addictive world of Pokémon Go, but are using a jailbroken iOS device, then you could be in for disappointment. Like a lot of apps, and specifically gaming releases, the developers have added jailbreak detection into the codebase of Pokémon Go, which means that if you’re jailbroken you are fresh out of luck. However, if you install the PokePatch tweak, it will help circumvent the native jailbreak check. You can grab it from the developer’s personal repo here:

And then enjoy playing Pokémon Go on your jailbroken device!


If you are loving everything that Pokémon Go has to offer, but simply don’t want to have to explore the surround environment by actually physically walking places, then PokemonGoAnywhere is probably the right package for you. With this jailbreak tweak installed, you can cheat by simply tapping anywhere on the display to make yourself walk to that location.

What’s more, it also looks as though additional functionality and power will be added over time. The tweak is available from the developer’s personal repo here:


There are few things more annoying in the world than finishing a hard day at work, wanting to explore the Pokémon world and catch some exceptionally rare Pokémon, only to find that the servers are being hammered so brutally that they’ve given up and taken themselves offline. Now, with the installation of FlappyGo jailbreak tweak, you can wait for those servers to come back up by passing the time with a game of Flappy Bird without having to leave the app.

The tweak can be installed from the developer’s personal repository here:

Pokemon Lock

If you’re willing to disable the passcode on your iOS device, and are perfectly happy to have your battery absolutely annihilated, then you can now play Pokémon Go directly on the Lock Screen of your iPad or iPhone thanks to the Pokemon Lock tweak. If you need to cure that addiction, but really don’t have the energy or desire to unlock your device, find the Pokémon Go app and launch it, then this is a must-have jailbreak tweak for your device. But be advised, that this only works with the passcode disabled.

The tweak can be grabbed from the developer’s personal repository here:

Poke Radar

A free app available for iOS and web (coming soon to Android) features a crowdsourced map that helps Pokémon Go players find Pokémon near them. More details on it can be found here: Find Pokemon In Pokemon Go The Easy Way With This Crowdsourced Map.

Google Account Fix

In all of the excitement that comes with signing up for a Pokémon Go account, you could be forgiven for stopping to wonder what kind of access would be provided to the developers of the app if signing in with an existing Google account. It turns out that creating and signing in with a Google account provides developer Niantic with permissions akin to that of Google’s own Chrome account, which, in short, means total account access.

You can of course prevent that by following out guide here: Pokemon Go Is Getting Full Access To Your Google Account, Here’s How To Fix That.

Update: This issue has been fixed now with an update to iOS app. Read more on it here.

Pokémon Go Battery Saver

Not only is it a game, but it’s a game that’s extremely graphics intensive and also makes regular use of the device camera and GPS sensors to provide real-time location tracking services.
