onion, a tweak that strips layers off of the Control Center.

Many themes are simplistic, with some pastel colors and simplified iconography. Until now, there hasn’t been a good way to strip down Control Center to match this ideology. Developer candoizo recently released his tweak, ‘onion’, which peels back the layers of Control Center to remove the gradients around buttons.


It works successfully on my iPhone 6+ with 10.2, Yalu b7. It does not currently work properly with FlipControlCenter, where the AirDrop/AirPlay buttons will work fine but the toggles at the top and bottom will not change. candoizo will be fixing that minor issue in the future.

An alternative I found works very well is adding the FlipControlCenter “Stately” theme in Anenome. The developer also ensured it had compatibility with Horseshoe and Noctis.

It’s nice to be able to get your hands on this tweak for free. For many themers, onion may become a necessary tool in their arsenal. It’s a simple tweak that does not require any configuration. It is available for free on the BigBoss repo.
