Isn’t it great that you can now change iPhone theme for iOS 10 without Jailbreak. You can give your smart device with the latest iOS 10 a new look and feel without having to worry about Jailbreak or Cydia et al.
In earlier days, Jailbreak was deemed to be full of opportunities and a means of freedom from limitations. It was a huge breeding ground born out of Apple’s untiring efforts to increase security aka restrictions for its closed software ecosystem. But, it seems that lack of Jailbreak is posing itself as another opportunity full of promise.
We are seeing a spike in apps for iOS devices that don’t require you to Jailbreak and still provide quite some effective solutions. The gaming emulators are a prominent example of such apps that let you play retro classic games on your iOS devices but don’t require Jailbreak at all. Then there are multiple third-party apps that have earned their rightful name in non-Jailbreak community without any compromise on freedom from limitations.
