While we wait for an iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak [ext link], something which seems to be quite elusive at the moment, we have found a way to install tweaks on your iOS device, without having to install the jailbreak first. The solution is called Extensify and, while it isn’t as deep as Cydia, it does allow you to tweak your iPhone or iPad in some small ways. It will only work on stock apps or on those you download from the iOS app store but it is better than nothing and it also provides those who don’t want to jailbreak with a way to modify their devices rather than being tied to the stock iOS.

How to Use Extensify :
Extensify is simple to use; simply download it using the steps shown below and then you can open it and choose which tweaks you want to install. Instead of actually modifying the app, you download a modified version of the app and install it. You then have two apps the same, one original and one modified version.
How to Install Extensify :
There are two ways to do this. Both the methods are explained below with video tutorials.
Method 1 : Safari Browser
This will only work on Safari browser, not on any other that you may be using:
- Open Safari browser on your iPhone or iPod on iOS 10
- Tap the address bar and type in downloadextensify.com , tap the Go button
- When the page has loaded, tap the UP arrow from the toolbar at the bottom of the page on the iPhone or in the top right corner on the iPad
- A list of choices will now appear, tap on Add to Home Screen [ look for the + symbol ]
- Rename the app icon, calling it Extensify and tap on Add
- You will now see the Extensify app icon on your home screen
