Apple Watch UI tweak ‘Aeternum’ receives a huge update

Most of you probably heard about Apple Watch UI jailbreak tweak Aeternum which is considered one of the best tweaks that brings Apple Watch UI to your iPhone's springboard. However, the tweak has just received a massive update which brings new cool features beside bugs fixes. If you purchased the tweak but didn't want to try, I think this is the best time to change your mind..

The update is available for free for those who already purchased the tweak..

Here is the full change log for Aeternum
  • Added setting to switch between old rectangle and new diamond basic layout
  • Added animated clock and calendar icons
  • Added setting for animation speed
  • Added setting for scrolling speed
  • Added setting for default zoom level
  • Added setting for dock icon count
  • Added setting for centring on launched apps
  • Improved placement of icons to better fill screen and allow better sorting by usage (from rectangle to diamond shape) – you might have to – rearrange some of your icons to your custom order
  • Improved minimum zoom level
  • Improved appearance of Spotlight icon by hiding its name
  • Improved some more little things
  • Fixed Spotlight keyboard not showing up automatically
  • Fixed missing Icons on iPad mini non retina
  • Fixed crash when emptying folders in normal SpringBoard
  • Fixed hard to click x/delete buttons on icons
  • Fixed icons being clickable at minimum zoom
  • Fixed some apps having a very long name label
  • Fixed tap on status bar scrolling up Aeternum view
  • Fixed glitch with icons remain spinning when opening app switcher while icons spinning
  • Fixed some more bugs

As you can see, there are just as many additions and improvements as there are outright fixes, which is why I suggest giving the tweak another shot if you’re not still using it. I really enjoy the new diamond basic layout, and I also like the ability to change the amount of app icons present in the dock via Aeternum’s preferences. Users will also appreciate new settings for animation speed, scrolling speed, and default zoom level.

The one lingering bug that I noticed appeared when switching between the default Springboard and Aeternum’s replacement interface. The dock, which can be kept in Aeternum, disappears when switching back into normal mode from Aeternum. You can, however, quickly recover the dock simply by changing the orientation to landscape mode. It’s not a deal breaker by any means, but I wanted to mention it since I encountered it multiple times while testing this update.

As I said, the new update is available for free for those who purchased the tweak, while the tweak is available for $2.99, you can grab it from Cydia store if you hadn't yet..
