If you are a long time Apple user or are familiar with iOS products, you would be knowing that Apple does not share the low-level specifications of its iOS devices, which is why we have to rely on other sources like benchmark tests in order to find out the detailed hardware information. Details like the amount of RAM, number of CPU cores, CPU clock speed, etc. are not displayed to the users.

Well, if you are someone who likes to keep a check on these numbers for the sake of information, this habit of Apple can seem really annoying. Well, not any more, as there is now a tweak for checking out the detailed hardware specifcations of any iOS device.
Named as the HardwareSpecs, this new jailbreak tweak provides you a complete hardware specs list right inside the Settings app. Let’s browse through the features of this tweak to see what it offers.
- The HardwareSpecs tweak provides you with a new Hardware Specs option in the stock Settings app.
- This option provides you information like the Model Number of your device, Product Type, Architecture, Processor, Platform, number of cores, etc.
- The tweak does not require any setting up and is ready when you have installed it. Just install the tweak and go to Settings > General > Hardware Specs to check what configuration your iOS device is running on.
If you own a jailbroken iPhone or iPad and like to keep a knowledge of what hardware your iOS device is carrying, then the HardwareSpecs tweak is a great tweak. Just like the Geekbench 3 app for iOS, the tweak tells you about the chip model number, which also reveals that vendor that made it.
The best thing about the HardwareSpecs tweak is that it is available for free on Cydia. This makes it an even more desirable tweak, and the usefulness of this tweak is great for the tech-heads who like to keep themselves updated with all the hardware details of their favourite iOS devices. HardwareSpecs is compatible with devices running iOS 9 to iOS 9.0.2. You can get it from Cydia’s BigBoss repo.
