First and foremost, your iPhone is an Internet-based communication device, but that does not mean you can not use it for other things. The handset’s rear-facing LED flash, for example, works as a practical multi-stage flashlight when you are stuck in the dark.
Stock iPhone users are limited to using the lock screen flashlight for flashlight or using the control center rocker button anywhere else in iOS. But in the difficult situations with a slippery finger where using a touch screen is simply not a viable option, a new and free jailbreak tweak was called Manaar by iOS developer Plat-Ykor could come in handy.
Manaar circumvents the need for the touch screen by allowing users to switch the rear-facing LED flash on their iPhone with a double-tap on the handset’s side-mounted wake-up button when the device is asleep and locked. It saves both time and provides a more convenient approach to using the iPhone flashlight feature, especially in cases where the hands are greasy and unable to operate a touch screen effectively.
Activator also comes with a feature to activate the iPhone flashlight using other methods, but it is hit or miss, depending on the gesture chosen, and Manaar offers a little more customization to the end user. These customization options can be found in the tweaks dedicated preferences pane, which can be found in the Settings app after installation:
Here you can:
- Enable or disable Manaar on request
- Allow Manaar to work even when Low Power Mode is enabled
- Enable or disable haptic feedback when using Manaar
From what we can collect, there is no need to respring to save your changes.
If you are interested in trying Manaar yourself, you can download it for free from the Packix repository via your favorite package manager. Manaar supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices that have a rear-facing LED flash.
