Isn’t it unfortunate that Apple allowed only four icons in the iPhone dock found in iOS 8 and also on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus ? However, jailbroken iOS devices have already tasted the luxury of having a five-icon dock in your iPhone, thanks to the popular jailbreak tweak called Five Icon Dock Modoki. If you tried this tweak and loved it, then there is another treat waiting for you.

A similar tweak has been newly launched and is called the betterFiveIconDock, which allows you to have a fifth icon in the iPhone dock on your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus along with iOS 8. The dock looks really great with the five icons, especially on the iPhone 6 Plus. The reason behind this is that there is a good amount of space between the icons, so it does not look like a cramped dock, like on the iPhone 5/5s. However, you can fix that issue by decreasing the icon size. The betterFiveIconDock tweak works very well even in the landscape mode on iPhone 6 Plus.
