The title Cydia battery tweaks that save battery like a pro pretty much explains the thing which we’re going to discuss today. If you are still unaware of the term “Cydia“, then read the next sentence carefully. Cydia is an app store for iOS where users find the apps/tweaks that can be install on jailbroken iPhone and iPad.
There have always been issues with the battery life of newer iOS versions. In earlier versions, it was way better. But now it’s as you charged it to 100% in the morning and till the evening it gets down to 10-20%. Which definitely forces you to stop using it and put it on charge.
Some people follow the different precautions for saving as much battery as possible. But for most of the people, this thing sucks…
So what now?
Well, we have handpicked and personally tested two Cydia tweaks that save 2x times more battery. These tweaks have helped us and will surely help you too.
