Jailbreaking your Apple device is one of the best ways to escape Apple’s imposed restrictions and unlock your device’s true potential.
However, that might affect performance because users install software from unknown or untrusted sources.
However, once you accept that risk, you can go ahead and enhance the experience your device offers.
New users tend to get lost among the thousands of Cydia tweaks available.

PowerDown is a tweak that works on the iOS 10.2 Jailbreak.
