Little11 augments older iPhones with modern gestures and features

Now that we sleep in every day and age within which notched, edge-to-edge displays are the norm for Apple-branded smartphones, those sporting traditional rectangular displays are starting to show their age both in terms of appearance and functionality.

Despite the huge bummer this seems to entail initially glance, those who’ve taken the steps to jailbreak their aging iPhone can now call upon the assistance of a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Little11 by iOS developer Ryan Nair to port many of the newest gestures and program elements that we’ve come to enjoy on the iPhone X and later to older handsets with traditional rectangular displays
In the screenshot examples above, you’ll notice many of the items that Little11 can bring round non-notched handsets, including:

 

The Home Bar
Home Bar-based app-switching
iPhone X-style Status Bar
iPhone X-style Dock
And much more…
Upon installing Little11, you’ll find a frenzied preference pane within the Settings app where you’ll be able to configure the tweak to your liking:
Here, you can:

Choose your preferred Status Bar style
Default Status Bar
iPad Status Bar
iPhone X Status Bar
Toggle the house Bar on or off globally
Toggle the house Bar on or off on the Lock screen only
Enable or disable the larger keyboard
Enable or disable the rounded App Switcher and Dock
Adjust the corner radius via a slider
Reduce Home screen icon rows by one
Enable or disable the rounded screen corners
Adjust the corner radius via a slider
Enable or disable the Status Bar-based center grabber
Toggle the Status Bar-based battery percentage
Enable or disable Picture-in-Picture video viewing
Enable or disable Face ID animations for user authentication
Enable or disable Lock screen shortcuts for flashlight and Camera
The developer includes a Respring button at the underside of the preference pane to assist you to save any changes you create.

While we wouldn’t recommend all of those features on a conventional rectangular display thanks to size constraints, we particularly just like the iPhone X-style Status Bar and Dock, and therefore the Lock screen shortcuts, among other things. Others may appreciate Picture-in-Picture support and residential Bar support, but your mileage may vary.
Those inquisitive about downloading Little11 can snag it completely freed from cost from the Packix repository in their package manager of choice. The tweak works with all jailbroken iOS 11, 12, and 13 devices.
