The redesigned lock screen in iOS 7 sports a minimalistic user interface. Apple got rid of the iconic slide to unlock slider button, and replaced with just the “slide to unlock” text and a subtle animation that highlights the text which hints at the direction in which you need to slide to unlock the lock screen.
If you’re not too satisfied with this clean new look, and want to remove text and the grabbers at the bottom for Control Center and at the top for Notification Center, then two new iOS 7 jailbreak tweaks let you do just that.
TabLess is a new jailbreak tweak that lets you remove the grabbers for Control Center and Notification Center from the lock screen.
