iOS 9 was officially launched in September, being installed on the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, which came with a new screen technology called 3D Touch, but some features which you can get on an older iPhone only if you jailbreak it, after upgrading it to iOS 9. So, here are the Cydia tweaks which you can install on an older iPhone, to get the features introduced on the iPhone 6S.
Unlike older iPhones, the iPhone 6S allows you to use Hey Siri without plugging the device into a power source, for it to be enabled. By installing UntetheredHeySiri, this feature will be available in similar conditions. You don’t need to hold down the home button to activate Siri, as you will just say Hey Siri and the personal assistant will “wake up”. UntetheredHeySiri will just add the option to the Siri menu, which will be found in the Settings app.
Live Photos Enabler
With the new iPhones you can record a video of 1.5 seconds before taking a picture and 1.5 seconds after the shot, so you’ll get 3 seconds worth of video, just like an animated gif. In order to get this feature on older devices, you will need to install Live Photos Enabler. So, with this tweak, you will be able to record a similar 3 seconds video and when you’ll send it to an iPhone 6S, it will be recognized as a real Live Photo. Live Photos Enabler doesn’t have any settings, being just added to the Camera app.
Apparently, in order to enjoy the experience of working with a screen that supports 3D Touch, you can install a tweak called RevealMenu, which will bring 3D Touch Quick Actions and Peek to your older iPhone. Quick Actions can be activated by long-press on an app icon on the home screen, then to activate Peek, just tap and swipe up. Pop really depends on the 3D Touch technology, so it’s not supported.
The iPhone 6S doesn’t have a LED flash on the front side, but the users can take selfies at night using a feature which turns the entire screen into a camera flash. Luckily, this feature can be used on older iPhones with the help of the FrontFlash tweak. However, it doesn’t work on all devices, because there were some users who complained that they encountered problems.
