Transition: new unlock animations for the Lock screen


Transition is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that adds a ton of new Lock screen-to-Home screen animated transitions to iOS. In all, there are over two-dozen animated transitions, and that doesn’t include the random option that will allow you to enjoy a different transition with every unlock of your device. If you’re looking to add some spice to the unlock animation on your iPhone, then Transition may be just what you need.

After Transition is installed, you’ll need to go to the Settings app to find the tweak’s preferences. Once there, you’ll see a kill switch, and a panel to establish the desired animation.

As mentioned, there are lots of animations included with Transition, and it can be a little overwhelming when you first scroll through the massive list. With that in mind, you may be best off using the random option, at least up front, so that you can easily get a taste of some of the included animations. You can also watch our video walkthrough, because I step through all 25 of the included animations so that you don’t have to.


One thing that you should keep in mind about Transition, is that while Touch ID works perfectly fine with it installed, the majority of the transitions aren’t visible unless you use a traditional slide to unlock swipe. Transition does work with a passcode, but it’s better experience without a passcode.

Transition will be out in the very near future on the BigBoss repo for $1.99. If you’re searching for a way to liven up things on the iPhone’s Lock screen, then this is a tweak to keep an eye out for.
