How to Change the iPhone 6 Reachability Background Color


ColorReachability is the new Cydia tweak that we found that is available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free for all those who have a jailbroken iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It is a new jailbreak tweak available for you all to have and play with your iPhones to make it more colorful to your liking. So let’s check out what this reachability background tweak is all about.

Apple made iPhone 6 and 6 Plus so big, that is has become kind of difficult to work on it with a single hand easily, unless you are one of those giants who have been victims of over growth and have large hands and fingers. But for the others who sadly don’t have that option, Apple has provided a nice option in iOS called Reachability where the screen is shrunk to the size comfortable for the users to operate with a single hand. But now there is a limitation that you cannot change the reachability blank space.

Now using this ColorReachability jailbreak tweak you can customize the background to the color of your choice, literally. Using reachability is very simple. When you download the Cydia tweak on your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you will notice a new preference of reachability being created in your settings menu. When you go in there, there you will find the enable and disable button for the tweak and below is an option of tint color.

When you go into tint color, here is where all the magic happens. There are slider options provided with a proper RGB option where you can adjust the amount to your liking to get the shade you want. And then there is the alpha option provided as well below that to add certain effects to the color. So you can just keep playing along and make the color for your reachability to your liking. Also there is an option of blur provided to further texturize and provide effects to your reachability color.


And if like some, you are the lazy types, or like to stick to the basics and specifics, there are presets made available from where you can chose any color that you like, from primary ones like RGB to secondary colors as well like yellow, brown, purple, etc. and many more. There is also a random button provided which on pressing mixes up the RGB, Blur and Alpha values absolutely randomly to come with something whacky.

After you are done playing and setting the color to your liking, just press the home Touch-ID button twice to enable the color in reachability and that’s it, you are done. It is as simple as it gets.

ColorReachability is a nice and solid Cydia tweak that is available for your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and most importantly it is free. It is tough to find a decent jailbreak tweak and that too for free, so now we have one here to play with. All those using smaller iPhones can also get it, to play with mixing colors, but you won’t be able to activate it. So get this new Cydia tweak and do sent in some screenshots to us in the comments section below to show us all the whacky colors you have created and built using the ColorReachability jailbreak tweak.
