Those of you that jailbreak their iPhone 5 do it for one main reason – to customize it in ways that Apple doesn’t allow. There are thousands of different apps, tweaks, mods and themes for a jailbroken device, some of which are bad, some are mediocre and some are pretty stunning. Here are the top ten jailbreak apps for the iPhone 5:
Auxo is probably the most popular tweak of all times. It replaces the native app switcher with one that is much more versatile. You can easily preview each app or remove them, one by one or all at once. Also included is a set of toggles, similar to SBSettings that allow you easy access to your most commonly used settings. Auxo upgrades are free to existing users but new users must purchase the app for $1.99 from the BigBoss repo on Cydia.
