Assistability tweak adds tools to Reachability space

Assistability tweak adds new tools to the Reachability free space. This feature implemented by Apple pulls the contents of your display farther down so you can reach the screen with your thumb or larger displays. Now you can use it to access favorite apps or jailbreak tools on iOS 12 and iOS 13.

What is Assistability tweak?

When you use Reachability interface you will notice a large gap of unused space at the top of your display. Assistability13 tweak is a multitasking app that places an AssistiveTouch inspired menu into the Reachability window, making functional use of the space. You can but it for $1.50.

After installing the tweak adds a new configuration panel to the Settings app. From there you can enable the tweak on demand, activate push from button, select your favorite system or user-installed apps (up to 6), hide grabber, and also included the option to enable Assistability on iPads that have TouchID but do not come from the factory allowed to use Reachability.

Button Actions (define up to four) include option to open App Switcher, Apple Pay, Control Centre, Home, Notification, Siri, Kill All Apps, or clean UICache. Moreover, the developer @DODGraphics added a few more customizable options, you can adjust the height of the menu window, and you can adjust the timeout (system default 8s) setting that closes the window when inactive.

Assistability13 tweak can be pull down from the top like the factory reachability, or you can choose to have the menu push up from the bottom of the screen for easier use. It is also packed with a section for power options (respring, reboot, safe mode, SBReload, shut down, etc.). The tweak works on both unc0ver and checkra1n jailbreak tool running on iOS 12 and iOS 13.

Assistability13 tweak will only work if you have a Reachability-capable device and if the Reachability feature is turned on. If it seems like the tweak doesn’t work after installation, then make sure you have Reachability turned on from Settings → General → Accessibility → Reachability.
