The Lock screen is the first thing you get to look at every time you pick up your iPhone and begin using it, and with that in mind, it’d be useful if Apple provided some kind of flexibility by way of user-configurable aesthetics and functionality.

While non-jailbroken handsets don’t have much to offer in this department, a newly released jailbreak tweak called LSTweak by iOS developer neoney empowers avid jailbreakers with the ability to have a sleek Lock screen interface like the one depicted above.

Once installed, LSTweak puts a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app where users can adjust and modify various elements of the redesigned Lock screen interface:

Here, you can:

  • Choose what the separator shows:
    • Nothing
    • Time
    • Battery level
  • Configure a custom day label color
  • Configure a custom day of the week label color
  • Configure a custom month and year label color
  • Configure a custom separator view color
  • Configure a custom time label color
  • Enter your preferred readout format

The developer includes two different buttons in the preference pane, including a Respring button and a Save button. The Respring button saves most of your color-centric options, while the Save button saves the formatting if you should ever change it from the default.

Due to the aesthetic nature of LSTweak, it’s understandable that some people may like the effect and others won’t. With that in mind, those who like what they see can download LSTweak for free from the Packix repository via your preferred package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 12 and 13 devices.
