Open iFile on your iPhone and go to /System/Library/CoreServices.

If you don’t see this immediately you need to go back to the very top of the file tree. Sometimes iFile starts you well into the file structure.

Scroll to the bottom and tap on Systemversion.plist.

Find the very bottom part of this text file look for 9.3.3 or your current version of iOS.

Tap on Edit and then change this to 9.0.2. Save the file and go back to your home screen.

Now you can buy Cydia tweaks on iOS 9.3.3.

If you left Cydia open, restart Cydia. At this point you should not restart or respring your iPhone. If you do this you will get stuck in a boot loop.

Now you can open Cydia, find the app you want to buy and purchase it. Do not install the app.

After you buy the Cydia tweaks you want, open iFile and go back to the Systemversion.plist and change it back to 9.3.3 or whatever your file originally said. Save and close the file.

Restart Cydia, find the app you just bought and you can now install it. You need to do this process each time you want to buy apps, so it is a good idea to buy several at once if you know you need them.

Activator

One of the most popular jailbreak tweaks of all time is Activator, and it's easy to see why. Activator allows you to set up automations as well as shortcuts for all sorts of different actions, like automatically turning on your alarms for the next day and even changing songs using the volume buttons.

This is especially true now that Activator works on iOS 9.3.3, so you can combine it with everything that Appl has added to iOS 9 and iOS 9.3.3.

AppDrawer

One of the best features of Android is the app drawer, where all of your installed apps appear when you bring it up. Something like this is awesome, since you don't have to have all of your apps on the home screen, and now the feature is on iOS through Cydia thanks to AppDrawer.

Browser Changer

Do you use a web browser on your iPhone other than Safari? Then it might be nice to actually change iOS's default browser to your preferred one using Browser Changer. This means that any links from other apps will now open in the web browser of your choice and not just default to Safari.

Bytafont 3

iOS 9 comes with the new San Francisco font, but if you're not a huge fan of it, you can use Bytafont 3 to change the font to whatever you want. The possibilities are endless here.

DeleteForever

Not a big fan of the Recently Deleted folder in the Photos app? While there isn't an iOS 9 Cydia tweak to get rid of the folder, you can at least bypass it altogether when deleting a photo.

DeleteForever will allow you to permanently delete photos with one swoop, rather than deleting a photo and then having to delete it again from the Recently Deleted folder.
