iOS 12 is coming with more customizing features than iOS 11 and iOS 10. One such amazing feature is group notifications. Jailbreak users can’t update to iOS 12 to sustain Jailbreak. But you don’t have to worry about it as StackXI a Cydia tweak allows us to get group notifications right from iOS 11 Jailbroken devices.
StackXI Cydia tweak is developed by a famous tweak developer Ominousness. She has released the tweak recently.
What is Group Notifications?
Before iOS 12, Each notification is displayed separately on lock screen even though some of them belongs to single application. But fortunately, Apple added new feature Group Notifications on iOS 12 to show notifications to belong to one application into single unit. This feature makes it easy to read notifications on lock screen.
Stock iOS users have to wait until September to get this feature (Apple releases public version of iOS 12 in September 2018). People using jailbroken iOS device anyway can’t update to iOS 12 until there is a stable jailbreak released for iOS 12. In this scenario, StackXI will be the only option to get group notifications option right from iOS 11 jailbreak devices.
It works on iOS devices running on iOS 11 – iOS 11.3.1 and also on iOS 11.4 beta 2. Working smoothly with Electra jailbreak.
How StackXI Tweak Works
Unlike iOS 11 notifications, It groups all notifications belongs to one app into single unit and stacks them together. To see all notifications belongs to particular app, Simply tap on stack. Stack will automatically expand and it will show you all notifications. All new notifications will be shown in chronological order from top to bottom (Latest will be displayed on the top).
This is really a cool tweak that brings iOS 12 experience right on iOS 11 as many of Jailbreak users don’t want to update to iOS 12 to sustain jailbreak mode. This tweak was available on https://ominous.cf/repo. Now, its moved to new address.
StackXI is available on https://repo.nepeta.me/ repo compatible with iOS 11. Its absolutely free to download and use this tweak.
