In recent years, the iPad has undergone several design changes, resulting in a device that is faster, thinner and much lighter, as well as bigger in the case of the iPad Pro. The iPad benefits greatly from being jailbroken, perhaps more so in many respects than the iPhone but, right now, unless your iPad is running on an iOS version that can be easily jailbroken, you are out of luck. There have been recent jailbreaks shown off but none of them are being released publicly and we are now playing the waiting game. We are not without help, though; there is an app you can use that will help to fill the gap between jailbreaks and its called Mojo Installer.

The Mojo Installer is something similar to Cydia in that you can download external tweaks to modify stock apps. The only real differences are that you don’t need to jailbreak to make use of the Mojo installer and it doesn’t provide the depth that Cydia does. However, it is a decent alternative and will certainly help while we wait for a new jailbreak. It is also ideal for those iPad owners who don’t want to go down the route of jailbreaking but still want a small amount of extra functionality on their devices.
