What is Velox Reloaded?

Velox Reloaded is a jailbreak tweak by @ApexTweaks that adds new system widgets with intuitive functionalities directly to your iPhone or iPad’s Home screen via the very same grid-space that is used to display app icons. Pin your favorites iOS widgets to the home screen and install Velox tweak.

When you think about iOS widgets, the system is very limited allowing you to display useful information only if you will swipe over to the Today page. LockWidgets tweak is an addon to display widgets directly on the lock screen. Now, Velox Reloaded can do it on home screen.

Velox Reloaded

Velox Reloaded uses the native app interfaces to display widgets on the home screen. For example, the Weather widget uses the animated Weather app background and shows a quick synopsis of the weather outside. The Clock app, on the other hand, displays an ornate watch with the current time. If an app supports notifications, Velox Reloaded can be configured to display those notifications as a widget instead if there is no native widget available for that app.

Use 3D Touch or Haptic Touch gesture on the app icon to activate widgets using Velox Reloaded. From the contextual menu tap on Open widget Velox. Tapping on it provides you an interface where you can preview the Velox widget and choose one of three sizes for the widget.

Velox Widgets on iPhone Home Screen

To remove the widget from the home screen simply use the 3D Touch or Haptic Touch gesture on the widget in question, and you will find an option in the contextual menu to disable it. After you install Velox Reloaded, you’ll find a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app.

Velox Reloaded supports the following widgets FaceTime, Calendar, Photos, Phone (Favorites tab), Files (Documents), Apple Music, Settings, Notes, TV, Reminders, Weather, Activity (Fitness), Spotify, Watch, Clock. In the near future, the app will offer more than 20 additional custom widgets.

From settings access options to enable or disable Velox on demand, disable loading widgets after a respring, disable app icon badges when widgets for a specific app are enabled, push icons back to their original state after closing a widget, and also disable widget visibility while scrolling your Home screen to conserve RAM. Install Velox Reloaded via your preferred package manager.
