WidgeficationX lets you tinker with the transparency of your banners and widgets

WidgeficationX is a new free jailbreak tweak by Justin Petkovic that lets you customize the look of your widgets and notification banners by modifying their transparency values.

The tweak has a system-wide effect on your device, so you’ll see the changes throughout your many iPhone or iPad interfaces, whether you’re on the Lock screen, Home screen, or viewing Notification Center.

Defluxit applies a fade effect to your Lock screen notifications

One thing the jailbreak community does best is change the way iOS looks through the channels of jailbreak tweaks and themes, and one of the latest releases to do so is Defluxit, by c0ldra1n.

This tweak is intended to give your Lock screen’s incoming notifications a visually-appealing fade away effect that puts emphasis on your most recent notifications, as shown above.

This tweak removes the dots from the iOS UI

All across iOS, from the Home screen, to the Lock screen, to Control Center and so on, dots of all kinds appear whether to indicate a page in a page-driven UI, or to let you know something’s new on your device.

While some people don’t mind them, there are a number of people that hate seeing dots across their operating system, and a new free jailbreak tweak called NoDots10 by harrywantstodev lets you erase the various dots from all over iOS.

Acapella III lets you control your music with gestures instead of buttons

Music lovers can make great use of Acapella III, the third iteration of the popular jailbreak tweak series by Pat Sluth that gives power users a way to do more from the Now Playing interfaces in iOS by way of gestures.

You can use these gestures throughout iOS, whether you’re in Control Center, on the Lock screen, or viewing the Now Playing interface or the mini player in the Music app, and as a result of the new gesture-driven music controls, most of the button-based controls are removed from the iOS interfaces.

Temporal adds your world clocks to the Lock screen (and supports a good cause)

If you ever wanted to know what time it was in a different part of the world, you would typically resort to asking Siri or launching the Clock app from your Home screen to see your saved time zones.

On the other hand, a new jailbreak tweak called Temporal by ridn puts that information right on your Lock screen so it’s the first thing you see when you wake your device up from a sleep.

This tweak shrinks and relocates the Lock screen’s date and time indicator

A few years ago, a popular jailbreak tweak called SubtleLock rearranged some of the Lock screen’s information pieces to reduce their visual footprint and put more emphasis on the wallpaper you’ve chosen. Unfortunately, despite its popularity, it hasn’t been updated for iOS 10.

Despite the lacking support for those who have recently jailbroken iOS 10 with Yalu, users can now flock to an alternative: a jailbreak tweak called SimpleLSiOS10 by XCXiao. This tweak carries on the minimalist legacy SubtleLock started and never finished.

Falcon supercharges your Lock screen and Notification Center

The creativity surrounding a number of the jailbreak tweak releases for iOS 10 so far has been quite impressive, but perhaps one of my favorites yet is one called Falcon by iOS developer Logan O’Connell.

With Falcon, you will be supercharging your Lock screen and Notification Center interfaces with a ton of new features; among those are a web browser, a note taker, and a toggle page.

This tweak takes a circular approach on Lock screen music controls

If you use your iPhone for listening to Music, then you are familiar with what the Lock screen’s Now Playing interface looks like; bland and boring, just as it has been for years.

On the other hand, a jailbreak tweak called Spin10 by s1ris transforms your Lock screen’s Now Playing interface into a circular modern marvel; something I wish Apple would implement right out of the box.

PassButtonStyle allows you customize your passcode buttons look

Most modern Apple mobile devices are Touch ID-enabled and rarely get any passcode button screen time at all; nevertheless, any time your Touch ID sensor decides not to work correctly, or when rebooting your device, you will be introduced to it from time to time.

For those who see the passcode input screen more than others, a new free jailbreak tweak called PassButtonStyle by developer CydiaGeek will let you customize the appearance of your passcode buttons.

Calendar for Lockscreen 2 ensures you never forget an upcoming Calendar event again on iOS 10

People who have busy lives often need to have a way to organize their upcoming plans so they don’t forget them, and that’s where your iPhone’s Calendar app comes in handy.

Unfortunately, the Calendar app only lets you see upcoming events when they’re coming up very soon, and for some things, “soon” isn’t enough time to get prepared, and that’s why a jailbreak tweak called Calendar for Lockscreen 2 by VladMax Soft was developed, attempting to make everyday life easier.
