Medusa Brings iOS 9 Picture-In-Picture, Split View On iPhone And Unsupported iPads



Medusa is the name of a tweak we heard a lot about recently. Available for free to all users who have the iOS 9 jailbreak, Medusa can enable some functionality provided by Apple on the latest models of their devices but not on the others. For example, the new iPad Air 2 can enjoy two really interesting feature called SlideOver and SplitView and Medusa not only fail to enable them also on all other iPad but even on all iPhone!

Once you download the tweak, just open any application and move our finger from the extreme right to the left. In doing so, we will call the bar “SlideOver” where we can choose a second application to be opened simultaneously with the initial one, dividing the screen into two parts. We can then see two things at the same time and move data from one to another without losing time.

Currently Medusa for iPad is already available in Cydia via the BigBoss repository. Medusa (iPhone) instead, is in beta and requires a little ‘work before becoming a tweak official. However, if you want to try it in advance, you can just open Cydia and add the following repository:


Medusa, among other things, has the ability to install add-on to expand its possibilities. These include add-on, Steven Troughton-Smith has made one able to add the Picture-in-Picture for iPhone. The installation for the moment can only be done manually and then download the file from here:

When the download is done, send the .deb file to your iPhone via email. Making sure that you have installed iFile from Cydia, open the email and the attachment using iFile and proceed with the installation. Thanks to Picture-in-Picture, you can keep the active window with the videos play even when you close the application that creates the video. This window can be moved anywhere on the screen allowing us to work more as we follow the video.


Medusa wins immediately the category of “Best Cydia Tweak”.
