VolVibes adds haptic feedback and colors to iOS volume HUD


The jailbreak community is always looking for ways to customize the appearance of their devices, and the volume HUD indicator is no exception. VolVibes is a popular tweak that allows users to completely transform the look of the volume indicator on iOS 13 – iOS 16.

Add VolVibes Repo to your package manager.

What is VolVibes?

VolVibes is a free tweak that replaces the default volume HUD on jailbroken devices with a HUD that looks similar to the iOS 14 stock volume controller. This is a great tweak to bring the iOS 14 HUD to the older iOS 13 release. But there are more features and options to configure.

Ultrasound tweak is one of the most beautiful volume HUD controllers for iOS, and there are many great alternatives like VolVibes. Once installed, VolVibes tweak adds a new preference pane to the Settings app from where you can configure all options to your liking.

VolVibes is a highly customizable tweak that allows users to transform the appearance of their volume indicator. It fully supports OLED mode and comes with four different volume HUD styles to choose from: default, mini, large, and giant. You can adjust the corner radius, width, and height values to further tailor the appearance of the volume indicator for a unique look.

What's more, you can enable slider corner radius, define dim alpha, y offset, and dismiss timer. VolVibes tweak allows you also to hide the volume HUD from the system, remove the speaker glyph from the HUD, and define the step amount for headphones and built-in speakers.

For precise control of the volume HUD, you can activate the volume percent indicator and select a color for it. VolVibes also provides control over the HUD background color and HUD slider color allowing you to make a unique look for your iPhone or iPad. Change HUD Color!

VolVibes is designed to work in both portrait and landscape modes, offering a range of customization options for each view. If you've played around with the settings and want to start fresh, the developer included a reset settings button on the front page of the preference pane.

The mini and large styles of the VolVibes HUD are attractive options as they are, but if you want to apply any changes to the style, you'll need to respring your device. Fortunately, the developer has included a convenient respring button in the top right corner of the tweak's preference page, making it easy to apply your customizations. However, it doesn't respring on XinaA15.

VolVibes tweak works with all modern jailbreaks running iOS 13, iOS 14, iOS 15, and iOS 16. Those include unc0ver and checkra1n installing Substitute and Substrate libraries. On top of that, the tweak supports vibrations when changing the volume for better feedback.

Originally, VolVibes was a paid package that could be purchased for $1.00. However, since version 2.8 the tweak is available for free to all users. Ethan Whited, the developer behind VolVibes, has done an excellent job creating this amazing HUD replacement for iOS devices.
