Upcoming tweak lets you unlock iPhone by playing the piano

I know, sounds crazy right? But we have the video evidence that shows an in-progress tweak that allows you to do just that. The tweak is called Piano passcode, and just as its name suggests, it allows you to play a tune on a set of piano keys that reside on your lock screen. Playing the right tune unlocks the device.

We’ll be sure to come back with a full walkthrough once the tweak becomes available. What do you think about it? Would you consider using it?

      I believe those notes are “Na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na.”

    Why would you want a piano as a passcode?? Unless you’re Beethoven or Mozart.. Or else this is just impractical

    This idea was on reddit for so long glad someone actually took the time to make this tweak !

    If I set Moonlight Sonata as my passcode, nobody will be getting into my device anytime soon, and neither would I probably…

    I would never be able to unlock my phone while drunk. My friends might download this tweak for me!

    Ok, I want to make an urgent call, here I go! Na na na na na … for three minutes. By the time the phone is unlocked I forgot what I wanted to do hahaha. What a dumb idea!

      that’s why you can tab on the top and get to use the number passcode instead of piano passcode

    you open sbsettings from lock screen and go to safe mode :) then your phone will be unlocked.

    How about voice unlock like humming the tune to unlock the phone :)

  • iospixel

    This is something original. Not a re imagination of something out there already on iOS but something new. I like new.

    I’m glad it got air time. Thanks iDB.

  • Joe Benning

    Hell no. Not touching this one. I know a few who have already lost their jailbreak because they forgot the passcode. Only option after that is clean restore.
