Best Jailbreak Apps and Tweaks for iPhone Lock Screen


Other than a few minor tweaks here and there, the Lock screen in iOS has remained the same for several years now. In iOS 10, we got to see the addition of a new page on the Lock screen that displays all the widgets you’ve installed on your device.

While we’re yet to see Apple redesign the Lock screen to make it more useful, which unsurprisingly won’t happen anytime soon, users who have jailbroken their iOS 10 devices can already add new features to the Lock screen with the range of jailbreak tweaks that are available on Cydia.dsa

In this article, we will showcase the X best jailbreak tweaks that allow you to customize the iOS 10 Lock screen and add new features to it.

10 Best Jailbreak Tweaks for iOS 10 Lock Screen

Falcon

Falcon is by far one of the best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 10 that brings a host of amazing new features to the Lock screen. The tweak adds three new pages to your Lock screen, each of which serves a different purpose. They are as follows:

  • Browser: one of the pages is a built-in web browser where you can search for anything on Google directly from your Lock screen. You can view web pages as well as open them in Safari to continue browsing.
  • Toggles: the tweak adds another page where you can access over 15 different system toggles, such as Airplane mode, Location Services, Cellular Data, WiFi, and so on. It also provides access to brightness and volume sliders as well as options for rebooting, respringing, and placing your device in Safe Mode.
  • Notes: the last page is a note taking interfacing where you can quickly jot down important notes from your Lock screen.

You can access these pages by swiping right or left on the Lock screen.

LockGlyphX

If you use Touch ID on your iPhone, then LockGlyphX is a jailbreak tweak that you should definitely give a try. It makes your Lock screen fancier and “cooler” by adding the Apple Pay fingerprint glyph to the bottom of the screen.

As you place your finger on Touch ID to unlock your iPhone, the glyph animates to provide visual cues. It slowly fills up and turns into a check mark before your device is unlocked.

ColorFlow 3

ColorFlow is another interesting tweak for your Lock screen that customizes the Now Playing interface. Whenever there is music playing on your iPhone, the tweak changes the color of the Now Playing interface to the dominant color of the song’s artwork. This means that every song will have a unique Now Playing interface.

The best thing about the tweak is that it colorizes the UI elements in such a way that they blend in together very nicely.

Glancharger

This is one of the hidden gems that you won’t find in any of the default Cydia repos. Normally, when you plug in your iPhone to the charger, you’ll see the charging screen which shows an image of a battery with the amount that is left. Glancharger redesigns the charging screen by displaying the battery level as dots and it also shows a large clock on the screen.

Temporal

temportal tweak

Temporal is one of my favorite tweaks that always come in handy. The tweak allows you to view the time in different cities directly from the Lock screen. All you have to do is to swipe the Lock screen clock to view the time in different cities.

The tweak displays the world clock based on the cities added to the Clock app. If you wish to add a new city, you’ll have to add it to the Clock app first and it will automatically get added to the Lock screen.

DisplayWeather 10

If you tend to check the weather condition of your city frequently, then you’re going to love this tweak. It adds weather information to the widgets page on the Lock screen and Notification Center, which appears right next to the clock. It shows things such as the current temperature and the state of the weather (Sunny, Rainy, etc).

  • Price: Free

WeatherLock

This is another tweak for the weather that replaces the background of your Lock screen with the animated wallpaper that is displayed in the stock Weather app. The wallpaper changes dynamically based on the current weather condition of your city.

  • Price: $0.99

TapticPasscodeButtons

If you’re fond of haptic feedback, then you should check out TapticPasscodeButtons. As the name implies, this tweak brings haptic feedback to the passcode buttons on the Lock screen. So every time you press a passcode key, you’ll feel the haptic vibration.

  • Price: Free

Spin (iOS 10)

Spin redesigns the music interface on the Lock screen that looks completely different than the original design. It turns the UI elements into circular shapes. For instance, it changes the album artwork into a circular dial, with the playhead wrapped around it.

  • Price: $0.99
