Unable to enjoy the latest Netflix features on your jailbroken iOS device? Here’s the fix
While the picture-in-picture feature has been out for Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad device for a while, it was only a few days ago that Netflix, Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX) finally added support for the feature in its iPad application. Taking advantage of the iOS 9 PIP feature, you’ll now be able to watch Netflix in a small windows while continuing with other tasks on your device.
The feature has been supported for Videos and other applications such as Facetime, Hulu, WatchESPN and more. However, Netflix only hopped on board last week and to the dismay of many users, the feature is only supported on the iPad Pro, Air or later, or iPad mini 2 or later which run iOS 9.3.2 or higher. This has left a large portion of users without access to the feature. But if your device is jailbroken on iOS 9.0 or above, you can easily get past this restriction, thanks to an amazing jailbreak tweak. Here’s how:
