As many of you may know, iOS 7 has been jailbroken. The Evad3rs recently surprised the community with an official iOS 7 untethered jailbreak. While this is excellent news, unfortunately, there aren't very many tweaks that are compatible with iOS 7 yet. The compatibility issue is mainly due to Mobile Substrate lacking a much needed iOS 7/64-bit update, but hopefully that will be fixed in the near future. Mobile Substrate and certain tweaks will work with the iPhone 5/5c and below, but unfortunately Apple's iPhone 5s, iPad mini with Retina Display, and iPad Air are left out until things are updated. Cydia was recently updated to version 1.1.9 with a brand new design for iOS 7, so hopefully everything else will come together soon. The good news is, if you own a device that can run Mobile Substrate, there are a handful of iOS 7 compatible jailbreak tweaks available. We've put together an overview of some of the best tweaks compatible with iOS 7 devices. Check out our "top jailbreak tweaks" video below:
