What is Novus?

Novus is a jailbreak tweak that significantly enhances the aesthetic of the stock Phone app on iPhone by giving it a fresh and modern look that seamlessly blends in with the latest version of iOS 16. The resulting design is so well-executed that Apple will sooner or later adopt it.

All elements are easily accessible at a glance, with your recent calls list in the center, keypad, voicemail, and favorite contacts at the top, and a search bar at the bottom that can reveal your full contact list.
