Get the iPhone 6’s Reachability Feature on any Device (Cydia Tweak)

Reachability7 is a great feature for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which allows you to double tap the home button or touch ID on your iPhone to view all of the applications you currently have open.

This feature is definitely a great convenience and can be used on almost any Apple iOS device. Those who get Reachability will find that it also comes with the new Cydia tweak (which allows for downloading and installing applications by third party developers that cannot be found in the Apple Store).


Reachability7 works on any jailbroken iPhone that is running iOS7 or later. This tweak also works alongside Activator, allowing you to setup a shortcut icon for Reachability so you can simply press it to open.

One of the best things about Reachability7 is the fact that you can go into the settings to customize it any way you want so that you can either double tap the touch ID or home screen if you have a slightly older iPhone that does not have this feature.

While it is true that the Reachability tweak is fairly new, it definitely shows a lot of promise and seems to be a massive convenience when it comes to viewing all of the apps that you currently have running on your phone.

There are some people who have reported that there are a few bugs that need to be worked out, but so far it seems like a fairly neat tweak with a lot of potential.

One of the most common complaints that have surfaced about Reachability is that some people’s Wi-Fi has crashed while they were installing it. If you have any issues with this tweak once it is installed though, Cydia makes it fairly easy to get rid of completely.

Before you install Cydia, you will definitely want to make sure that you have all of the data on your iPhone backed up with its Cloud service.

Reachability was announced by Apple in early September, 2014 during the iPhone 6 event as a feature that is part of Apple’s “one handed mode”, making it easier to do things on your phone when using just one want.

Those who are using an older iPhone may not find this tweak to be as convenient as others though. This tweak allows users to slide the screen down by simply double tapping the Home button or Touch ID, depending on which iPhone is being used.

Those who want to disable Reachability will be able to do so by going to Settings, then General, Accessibility, Toggle On/Off Reachability. Once you disable this tweak though, you will not be able to reactivate it.

You can, however, go back into your phone’s settings and re-enable it if you decide to use it again. A lot of iPhone users, especially ones that have a model with the Touch ID button, are starting to use this tweak to their advantage, though not everyone feels the same way about it.
