How many times have you handed over your iPhone or iPad and wished it had a guest mode so you could protect important files and deny access to apps?
You will soon be able to do some of that thanks to a jailbreak tweak aptly called GuestMode that is expected to be released shortly.
The tweak adds a Guest Mode button to the passcode lock screen. When you tap on it, it gives someone access to your iPhone’s Home screen, however you can restrict access to the apps and other iOS features such as access to Notification Center, Control Center, app switcher, Spotlight, Siri etc and even restrict the ability to close apps from the app switcher.
By default the apps will be greyed out and the person who tries to access your device won’t be able to access the apps. You can then selectively allow access to certain apps via the Settings app.
You also have the option to change the position of the Guest mode button, and the option to set a passcode for the guest mode, so only authorized people can access the device.
