Are you excited for the new iOS 8 operating system? Can you wait until fall for its release? In some ways, you don't have to -- if your device is jailbroken.

With the help of these tweaks, you'll be able to enjoy iOS 8 features on your iOS 7 device, provided you have jailbroken it.

iTouchSecure is a great tweak for you if you're tired of typing in passwords for all the different apps you have. Instead you'll be able to use Touch ID to autofill passwords for you. No more typing in passwords everytime you want to get into your account on a specific app. Now you can just touch your finger to the the sensor. This is available on iPhones and iPads equipped with the iTouch sensor. It's available on Cydia for $5.00.

PredictiveKeyboard brings the iOS 8 feature of quicktype available to iOS 7 jailbroken devices. Just start typing and three options will pop up above your keyboard. It will get used to what you type as you type more messages. This is a feature that Android users have enjoyed for quite sometime. Finally, iOS 8 will address it and start offering quicktype. It's a Cydia tweak and only costs only $2.39.

MessageRenamer7 lets you rename text message conversations and give them a subject. This is especially useful for group text messages. Say there are three people at your job, and they are engineers. You can name the conversation "engineer discussion" so you'll know which work conversation is which.

OkSiri gives you the feature of "Hey, Siri" right now. Again, this is an advantage that Android users enjoy. Instead of having to hold down the home key and waiting for that Siri beep, you'll be able to just say, "Ok, Siri," and the Siri beep and screen will pop up asking, "What can I help you with?" In iOS 8, you'll say, "Hey, Siri," and it will be more stable. But, for now, say, "Ok, Siri," and enjoy this feature. This is a free tweak, and it's available here.

If you're one of those smartphone users that just has to have the latest technology, these tweaks will give you early access to iOS 8 features. Give them a try!
