System iOS 10 was released a long time ago, many have already had the opportunity to experience what is called for themselves the amazing new features that this OS provides, such as lock screen widgets, iMessage effects and an updated alarm clock.
With each update, iOS becomes more and more polished and functional, which makes jailbreak less and less relevant. But there are many more reasons why jailbreak iOS 10 is still necessary. In this article, we'll cover 8 main reasons.
1. Hacking applications
One of the biggest reasons for jailbreak is the new functionality of mainstream and third-party applications, as well as the ability to get rid of restrictions imposed on them. In the case of Pokemon Go, you can install a jailbreak tweak that allows you to navigate the map with a joystick rather than physically.
Cydia store is filled with a lot of tweaks, which increases the potential for use of third-party applications, from tricks for Instagram that allow you to save photos and videos to your device, to hacks for Snapchat that allow you to view pictures without time limits and save them in the Camera Roll.
2. File manager
There is another important feature missing in iOS 10, which is the presence of a file manager. Given the closed ecosystem iOS, it's no surprise that the company Apple hasn't provided this feature until now. But with the help of jailbreak, we can make it quite real and workable.
iFile is a fully functional file manager that allows you to view and edit system files and folders directly from your iPhone. You can also save files downloaded from the Internet.
3. Themes and appearance
Jailbreak will allow you to set your device to iOS 10 in every possible way. You can install themes using winterboard to change the look of your iPhone, which will turn your iPhone into Android – your machine or your iPad on Mac.
Jelbreak will also allow you to add original icons and icons, an additional row of keys on the virtual keyboard, change the operator's logo, and much more.
You can change the app icons to be more colorful or vice versa minimalistic, designed by true aesthetes. Examples of good setups:

4. New exclusive features from iOS 10 on older devices
Many were disappointed to learn that the new “Raise to Wake” feature from iOS 10 is only available on iPhone 6s and newer models.
Developers from Cydia quickly ported new features to older devices. We've already seen tweaks for Cydia that implement functionality 3D Touch for older devices, as well as picture-in-picture mode.
With a jailbreak available for iOS 10, there is no doubt that anyone will bring Raise to Wake to older devices. In fact, already a jailbreak tweak called ProximityLock, which uses the proximity sensor in iPhone to lock and unlock the device.
5. Restricting access to applications and folders
When your iPhone falls into the wrong hands, chances are your personal information will be accessed without your permission. With amazing jailbreak tweaks like Asphelia and BioLockdown & Bioprotect, you can lock apps and folders on your device using TuochID or passcode and prevent unauthorized access to them in a timely manner.
6.Changing the system font
BytaFont 2 allows you to change the system font on your hacked one iPhone. The program will change the font in apps, the lock screen and many other areas.
Would you like to play the classic Sega and Gameboy games that were popular in your childhood? With jailbreak tweaks like GBA4 iOS and RetroArch, you can play these games right on your iOS device and bring back your childhood memories.
8.Set the default app
One of the main limitations of iOS 10 is the inability to set your favorite third-party apps as default. Fortunately, the MapsOpener jailbreak allows you to set Google Maps as the default application instead of the Maps application Apple, and BrowserChooser allows you to change the default browser.
