Before we begin telling about the best Cydia tweaks for iOS 10, iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.2, let’s take a look at the jailbreak compatibility list.

  • iOS 10.1.1 works on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as other supported iPhone predecessors.
  • iOS 10.2 jailbreak works on iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE and iPad Mini 4
  • iOS 10.2.1 has not been jailbroken yet. There could be some time before the jailbreak for the firmware is released.

Apple is no longer signing the firmware installation of iOS 10.2, so you cannot downgrade once you install iOS 10.2.1. Therefore, if you want to remain jailbroken, do not update your device.

Irrespective of whether this is your first time jailbreaking your iPhone, or you have been jailbreaking your devices for a long time, the iOS 10 Cydia tweaks listed here will ensure that you can get the best out of your iPhone or iPad.
