Most iOS users tend to upgrade as and when a new iOS version is available. Not everyone can because they own the older devices and, to be frank, not everyone wants to upgrade; what they have works just fine. For those who own iPod 3G, there’s a very simple way to bring a few iOS 9 like features to it – a new app called Grayd00r 9.
And the best bit?
It’s absolutely free to download.
Let’s delve a bit deeper
What is Grayd00r 9?
Grayd00r 9 is a simple application that provides extra speed and new features to the older iPod Touch 3G and other older iOS devices. How does it work? It disables some system processes to provide a boost in performance, and it offers users the choice of disabling other features they don’t use to speed things up even more.
But wait, there’s more
This is a continuation of a project started by the same team some years ago. That project was called Whited00r, which brought iOS 6 and iOS 7 features to the older devices.
Grayd00r 9 Features:
Grayd00r 9 also provides a few features to give your device an iOS 9-like look. Check out these neat features:
- An iOS 9-like UI
- SlideOver for easy multitasking
- App Time Machine to find and install older app versions
- Control Center
- Software updates Over the Air
- Lowercase keyboard
- iOS 9 fonts
- Impressive speed and performance boost
Cool isn’t it?
Things to Know:
Graydoor 9 is a cool piece of software but, before you even think about downloading it, there’s a couple of things to know:
- You must have an up to date version of iTunes on your device
- Your older iOS device must be clean, so a restore is advised.
- Make sure you back up your data before you start
Graydoor 9 is only compatible with older iOS devices:
- iPod Touch 1G, 2G, 3G
- iPhone 2G, 3G
- iPad 1G
