How to speed up iOS 7

If you are reading this article, you probably want to find out how to speed up iOS 7 thanks to the Jailbreak. All you have to do is install these five Cydia tweaks that we show you below. Let’s start with those that allow you to speed up the animations, namely FakeClockUp, NoSlowAnimations and HiddenSettings 7.

speed up iOS 7


FakeClockUp is a tweak not very recent but still compatible – albeit in beta – with iOS 7. This program, which is integrated into the Settings menu of the iPhone, allows you to speed up the animations of iOS 7, especially useful on devices less recent (like the iPhone 4) that are not as fluid as they used to be. This tweak does not overclock the processor of the devices and has no impact on the battery: it is limited only to speed up the animations, such as those of opening an app, Multitasking or folders. To get the best speed balance, we recommend setting a value between 2.5 and 1.6 from the Settings> FakeClockUp> Animation Speed menu.



This is, instead, a recent tweak. NoSlowAnimations, a bit like FakeClockUp, speeds up the animations of iOS 7 without altering other parameters. Also, in this case, icons or settings will not be added: the tweak is much simpler than FakeClockUp since the user, after installation, will not have to do anything more, if not enjoy their device speeded up.

Also, unlike FakeClockUp, NoSlowAnimations is already available in the final version on Cydia and can be downloaded for free from the BigBoss repository.


Exactly like the two previous tweaks, even HiddenSettings7 allows you to speed up the animations of iOS 7. In this case, moreover, these are official settings of Apple – although hidden – HiddenSettings7 is the best solution to speed up your device with iOS 7. However , among the tweaks mentioned in this article, HiddenSettings7 is also the most difficult and risky to use: going to touch the wrong preferences, in fact, you run the risk of incurring more or less serious errors and, in some cases, the only way to solve these problems is to perform a device reset. If you’re not sure what you’re doing, then, avoid using HiddenSettings7.

iCleaner Pro

iCleaner Pro is an essential program to make cleaning on our device with iOS 7. This application, available on Cydia for some time, is among the most popular to speed up Apple devices. Through this software you can remove all cookies, cache and temporary files of applications, freeing disk space and speeding up the device. The beauty is that the process will be automatic unless the user wants to intervene directly.



Nitrous is a different tweak from the previous ones. In this case, the program does not speed up the animations of iOS 7 but acts, instead, on non-native browsers installed by App Store or Cydia. This tweak adds Apple’s “Safari Nitro” JavaScript engine in browsers that are not natively supported (like Google Chrome), which significantly speeds up a web page and web-app uploads.
