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.

Various iPhone 8 and iOS 11 concepts have been proliferating lately, with app developer Matt Birchler jumping on the bandwagon with mockups of his own. We’re liking some of the smart ideas presented in his batch of thoughtfully done renderings that envision a much more useful Lock screen on iOS 11.
Going beyond simple things like checking the date and time, launching the camera, accessing your favorite widgets and seeing notifications that have arrived since your last unlock, Birchler is proposing a Lock screen with Apple Watch-like complications, user-selectable app shortcuts, alert bundles, smart notifications that could be augmented further with optional location information and so forth.

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.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
