In case you haven’t jailbroken before and don’t know what Eclipse is, it is a cool tweak which adds a night mode to iOS. This helps in reducing the amount of eye strain while using the phone in darkness. Let’s do a quick recap of the tweak’s features.

Features :

  • Eclipse 3 tweak adds a dark mode to the entire iOS environment in order to subdue the white backgrounds which cause a lot of strain on the eye when the device is used in darkness.
  • Not only does the tweak bring a true dark mode to iOS, but it also enables you to pick the color of your choice which will replace the white hue of the iOS background. This gives a great customization ability in your hands. eclipse_3
  • The noticeable change in the iOS 9 compatible Eclipse 3 is that all the apps that get the night mode are disabled by default. This helps you save a lot of time which goes into disabling the apps and you can manually enable the dark mode for specific apps. eclipse2-2

Porting the Eclipse 3 tweak to iOS 9 is a major task, which is why there still are a handful issues existing in it. But regular updates will surely make the tweak bug-free in the coming weeks.
