Given that the keyboard is something that most iPhone and iPad users will interact with hundreds of times each day, this seemed like another important niche that needed attention. That’s why today we will be curating a list of some of the best jailbreak tweaks for augmenting the keyboard on jailbroken iOS 14 devices.
If you’re a jailbreaker, then this is a piece you won’t want to miss. So without further ado, let’s get started!
The best jailbreak tweaks for the iOS 14 keyboard
ProKeys – $1.99
One of the first things you might be tempted to do after jailbreaking is change the way your device looks and behaves, and ProKeys is a jailbreak tweak that gives you these capabilities with respect to the keyboard on your iPhone or iPad.
With ProKeys, you can do things like colorize the keyboard, change keyboard animations, and tinker with haptic feedback. There are seemingly endless options pertaining to these categories that can help you get a unique keyboard experience that your non-jailbroken friends will be totally jealous about.

SwipeExtenderX – $2.49
Despite being easy to use, the iOS keyboard is lacking in so many usability departments. SwipeExtenderX is a jailbreak tweak that attempts to change that.
Perhaps one of my favorite features of SwipeExtenderX is being able to assign powerful typing actions to specific keys that take effect when you swipe in any direction from that key. These can be text-editing functions such as copy, paste, select all, undo, or something else.

Loupe – FREE
One of the first things you’ll notice about text editing in iOS 14 is that Apple removed the magnifying glass when you try to select text or move the cursor around.
This decision received so much backlash from end users that Apple will be re-implementing it in iOS 15, but if you’re jailbroken on iOS 14, then you can use a tweak called Loupe to enjoy the magnifying glass experience yet again without updating your firmware.You can learn all about Loupe in this full review.
Key+ – $0.50
Key+ is a jailbreak tweak that augments the iPhone’s keyboard in more ways than one.
Whether you’re interested in more shortcuts in the keyboard’s unused space near the bottom on notched devices, an ease-of-access Emoji bar, or a fully integrated clipboard manager, this tweak has a little of everything for everyone.

Unique – FREE
There are more than a few scenarios where you might need access to your iPhone’s UDID, especially if you’re a developer or even just a basic user trying to activate a jailbreak tweak with a custom licensing system.
Accessing the UDID is typically a convoluted process, but with a jailbreak tweak called Unique, you can acquire and enter your device’s UDID by simply swiping up on your keyboard.

Shortmoji 2 – FREE
Shortmoji 2 is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most comprehensive jailbreak tweaks available for the iOS 14 keyboard. In fact, the intent of releasing this tweak was to provide the functionalities of several high-profile tweaks such as AnywherePredict, Barmoji, ColorBoard, DockX, HapticKeys, HomeBarSizer, KeyShortcut Pro, Textyle, Translomatic, and a bevy of others in a single package.
With features for adding keyboard shortcuts, making keyboard keys exhibit haptic feedback, making Emoji easier to access, colorizing the keyboard interface, and much more, it’s easy to see why this free jailbreak tweak is such a screaming bargain.

Copypasta – FREE
As you copy and cut text, iOS stores the contents in something called the clipboard (sometimes referred to as the pasteboard).
Copypasta is simply a clipboard manager for your jailbroken iPhone that gives you a lens into your copy and cut history so that you can paste more than just the most recent item you’ve copied or cut.

Marker – FREE
As you’re typing in a body of text, you can tap and drag anywhere in the keyboard to access iOS’ trackpad feature. This makes it easier to move the cursor and select text for editing. But it’s not perfect.
Marker is a completely different approach and a full-blown alternative to Apple’s keyboard trackpad feature. It’s not only a great way to improve your productivity when typing longer bodies of text, but it’s highly configurable which means you can suit it to fit your unique and individual needs.
