Colouration lets jailbreakers add a custom splash of color to their device

If you’re fortunate enough to have a jailbroken iPhone or iPad at your disposal, then that means you have the ability to make your device look completely different from anyone else’s by way of jailbreak tweaks. Whether you prefer subtle aesthetic changes or substantial aesthetic changes, there’s a little bit of something for everyone.

Today we’ll be giving you first-hand look at the newly released Colouration jailbreak tweak by iOS developer kanns. The name practically gives the tweak away, as it’s quite literally a system-wide colorization tweak that allows you to tint user interfaces and change system colors to be whatever you might prefer over Apple’s native selections.

Among the things Colouration can make color adjustments to are:

  • Status Bar colors
  • System-wide colors
  • Home Screen colors
  • Lock Screen colors
  • App colors
  • System colors
  • Slider colors
  • And more…

It’s worth noting that the Colouration tweak also supports presets, allowing users to set up their favorite values and save them for use another time if they ever decide to change things up and decide to walk their configurations back a notch.

Once installed, Colouration adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users may configure their iPhone or iPad’s native colors on demand. The preference pane is divided into several different sections, each of which we’ll showcase for you below:

Below, we’ll outline what each section provides to the end user:

Below the aforementioned preference panes are sections for saving and loading presets and accessing tweak settings. The latter contains an option to respring, reset the tweak’s options to their defaults, and a way to enter Safe Mode if needed. The developer also provides an Apply button at the top right of each preference pane for saving your changes — tapping it will result in a respring.

Colouration is a good way to get your hands dirty with system colorization, especially if you’re new to jailbreaking and might be interested in trying to make your handset unique from everyone else’s. The tweak is available for $0.99 from the Packix repository via any package manager and supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices.
