How to get Pixel launcher experience on jailbroken iPhone

The Android world is currently abuzz with news of Google's latest flagship phones, the Pixel and Pixel XL, which have replaced the Nexus line of devices altogether, owing to their highly-refined and more user-friendly interface. iPhone owners need not fret about not owning a Pixel phone, as it is possible to enjoy the rich Pixel-like experience by installing just a couple of tweaks on any jailbroken phone.

Download Vinculum jailbreak tweak via Cydia or ModMyi repo

iOS users have long been customizing their iPhones with numerous jailbreak tweaks and apps that remove the factory restrictions imposed on the device by Apple. The only caveat for using the Pixel Launcher tweak is to ensure that your iPhone is already jailbroken.

Assuming that you have a working jailbreak installed on your iPhone, you can head over to Cydia or ModMyi repo to download the latest version of the Pixel Launcher app, which allows you to install a Google Search icon and data widget directly on to your phone's Home screen. You can initiate a search just by tapping on the Google logo.

There is another tweak called Vinculum, which can also be accessed via Cydia and ModMyi repo. This tweak enables you to organize your Home screen app icons through a vertical app drawer that nearly mimics the UI on the Pixel device running Android 7.1 Nougat.

With the above two tweaks installed, you can enjoy the look and feel of a Google Pixel without any additional investment for buying the phone.
