Get Apple News App in Any Country with NewsOfTheWorld Cydia Tweak

Apple launched a new app in its latest iOS 9, the News app. News app delivers the latest news on your iPhone or iPad, but it is currently available only in United States. If you are not in USA and want News app to work on your iPhone or iPad, all you need to do is to change your region from Settings → General → Language and Region → Region → United States. There’s a catch with this trick; when you change the region back, the News app will again disappear from your iPhone or iPad.

In case you do not want to change your region, but at the same time you also want News app; then you need to jailbreak your iOS 9 device. If you haven’t done it so far, here’s the tool and tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 9. If you face any issue while Jailbreaking then here’s the guide on how to resolve issues while Jailbreaking iOS 9.

Get Apple News App in Any Country

After Jailbreaking, all you need to do is to install a Cydia tweak called “NewsOfTheWorld”, which is available for free on BigBoss repo. After installing tweak you will need to restart your device twice. There’s no logic behind restarting device twice, but the tweak does not seem to work without restarting twice.

The tweak does all the basic job of News app, and it’s pretty easy to get used to it, if you have ever used News app. It has some rich content like e-papers, magazines and many other sources. The tweak will replace Apple Newstand app with News, on your home screen.

After successful installation you will start getting latest news, and other updates depending on your favorite topics. Share your thoughts on our social media pages or in the comment box given below.

Cydia Tweaks Don’t Show Up in Settings App on iPhone and iPad? Here’s a Solution

After the news of iOS 9 untethered Jailbreak, users simply rushed to download the Pangu tool to Jailbreak their devices. But most of them were stuck after Jailbreaking, because few of the most demanding tweaks were yet to be updated to work with iOS 9. Basic tweaks like WinterBoard and PreferenceLoader were not compatible to work with iOS 9.

Many iOS 9 users would have already Jailbroken their devices and tried installing different tweaks, from the list we have already provided. If you aren’t able to Jailbreak your iOS 9 because of any error, you can also check our post on common iOS 9 Jailbreak problems.

Cydia Tweaks Don't Show Up in Settings App on iPhone and iPad

PreferenceLoader is one of the most essential tweak, because it lets you customize your installed tweaks under Settings app. PreferenceLoader was not compatible with iOS 9, and thus, all your installed tweaks were almost useless, because you cannot customize any of your tweaks.

However, if you are not seeing any tweak in the Settings app, obviously, it is because your PreferenceLoader needs to be updated to latest 2.2.3-1 version.

How to Fix Cydia Tweaks Don’t Show up in Settings App on iPhone and iPad

First and foremost thing you need to do is check whether the PreferenceLoader is installed in Cydia or not. Most of the times when you don’t find Cydia tweaks in setting, PreferenceLoader needs to be re-installed. So here’s how you can do that:

  • Open Cydia on your iPhone/iPad.
  • Search for PreferenceLoader.

Search for PrefenceLoader Cydia Tweak

  • Tap on Modify from top left corner (you will see Install button if you are trying it very first time.)

Tap on Modify PreferenceLoader Cydia Tweak

  • Tap on Reinstall from the Popup Menu (In case you are trying for first time, tap on install.)

Reinstall PreferenceLoader Cydia Tweak on iPhone

  • Right after that, your device will reboot thereafter launch the settings app to see the effect.

Most probably, this should solve the issue of Cydia tweaks not showing in Settings. If you are still unable to see the tweaks, then there might be problem with the Cydia installation itself. Or in some cases, you need to identify the particular tweaks which are not working and try to update them to fix the problems.

Re-jailbreaking your iPhone/iPad is the last option that will surely show the tweaks in settings once the process is completed. We hope that this solves your Cydia tweaks don’t show up in settings issue. Stay tuned on iCydiaOS blog for more such guides.
