During the iPhone 6/6 Plus event in October, Apple also announced the Apple Watch. A wearable iOS device that comes with its own distinctive Watch OS. Many really liked the Watch user interface and to be honest, it does look better than the iOS interface. Now, what if you could run the same UI on your iOS device? Well, you can, thanks to a new jailbreak tweak called Aeternum.
There have been a few other tweaks that bring the Apple Watch UI to the iOS device, but this has to be the best one out of the lot. This is a fully functional Apple Watch UI, not just a theme and you get plenty of options. You can re-arrange the app icons according to your preference or in order of most used. The tweak also lets you enable/disable the dock, but the tweak looks best without the dock.
When you tap and hold to rearrange or remove an app, the apps start spinning in different directions, which looks great. All the other animations are butter smooth and tapping on an app will indeed open it.
If you want to use your own set of app icons, you can do that by adding your icons to the tweak location via iFile etc. Don’t want the tweak to display app names, there’s a toggle for that too.
All in all, this is a great tweak that changes the look of your iOS device. Aeternum is available in the BigBoss repo for $2.99. Try it out and let us know how you liked this tweak. Yes, you’re going to need a jailbroken device.
