How to get Apple TV style alerts on iOS

Palert jailbreak tweak tvOS

One highlight of the Apple TV interface is the design of alerts. Minimalist grey boxes with a blurred background make options clear and buttons are easy to select with the Siri Remote. Not only are they functional, but tvOS alerts look great. The jailbreak tweak Palert brings a similar tvOS-inspired appearance to iOS notifications on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Once installed, Palert implements an Apple TV look across the system. This includes buttons, text fields, and even animations that simulate making a selection with tvOS. Palert offers several customization options under Settings.

In addition to a toggle that disables the tweak entirely, the background blur amount can be adjusted. Wallpaper can be consistently used as the blur background instead of whatever is currently on the screen when a notification arrives. The colors, which are automatically adjusted for readability, can also be customized. Users of larger devices, such as the iPhone 6s Plus or iPad will find that manually adjusting the alert size improves readability.

Palert is $0.99 on the Cydia app store. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 9 with Pangu. Find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
