With the release of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple released some device specific features such as Reachability and Lanscape Mode. The iPhone 6 Plus, due to its large size, isn’t easy to use with one hand. On the 6 Plus, Landscape Mode lets you change the orientation of the homescreen so you can use the device easily. A new Cydia tweak called SBFlip now brings this Landscape Mode to any iOS 8 compatible device.

SBFlip adds a landscape mode to your homescreen, but from some testing, it only works good with the iPhone 6. I noticed that on older iOS devices, even on a 4-inch display, the apps overlap each other when in landscape mode. Checkout the screenshot below, notice the dock?

If you’re an iPhone 6 user and would like to have Landscape Mode on your device, then you need to try out this tweak. SBFlip is available in the BigBoss repo for free and works on iOS 8 and later only. Want to jailbreak your iPhone 6? Follow our tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 8 and install Cydia manually.
