iOS has come a protracted way in recent years, especially in terms of widgets and knowledge displays. But when put next with plenty of the smartphone competition on the market today, iOS (and even iPadOS) still lag behind.
Enter Velox Reloaded, a shocking new jailbreak tweak by ApexTweaks that introduces quirky system widgets with handy functionalities on to your iPhone or iPad’s Home screen via the exact same grid-space that you simply use to store application icons.
In the screenshot examples above, you may notice that Velox Reloaded uses the native app interfaces as widgets in most cases. as an example, the Weather widget uses the animated Weather app background and shows a fast synopsis of the weather outside. The Clock app, on the opposite hand, displays an ornate watch with this time.
If and when notifications are available for a selected app, Velox Reloaded may be configured to display those notifications as a widget instead if there’s no native widget available for that app.
To enable a Velox widget for a supported app, merely use a 3D Touch or Haptic Touch gesture on the app icon in question, and you’ll find a replacement option within the contextual menu for Velox. Tapping thereon gives you an interface where you’ll be able to preview the Velox widget and choose one amongst three sizes for the widget:
To disable a Velox widget, just use the 3D Touch or Haptic Touch gesture on the widget in question, and you’ll find an option within the contextual menu to disable it:
For those interested, Velox Reloaded currently supports the subsequent widgets:
- Phone (Favorites tab)
- Files (Documents)
- Apple Music
- FotMob Pro (TodayScores)
- Activity (Fitness)

As the developers note within the tweak’s depiction, updates are planned for the near future which will introduce over 20 additional custom widgets.
After you put in Velox Reloaded, you’ll find an infatuated preference pane within the Settings app where you’ll be able to configure the tweak to your needs:
