April brings a new level of Lock screen customization to jailbroken iPhones

Jailbreakers that are looking to get the most out of their pwned handsets’ Lock screens would be doing themselves a huge favor by checking out the likes of a newly released and free-to-download jailbreak tweak dubbed April by iOS developer DaydreamDev.

April is a new all-in-one Lock screen customization tweak that provides users with everything they need to achieve the custom aesthetics they never knew they needed. Whether you’re trying to change up the Lock screen’s date and time display, tinker with the Now Playing interface, or customize the Quick Actions, this tweak’s for you.

The most important thing we can say about April is that it comes packed with a plethora of options. Once you install April, you’ll see for yourself just how many options the tweak brings to the table when you visit its dedicated preference pane in the Settings app:

Here, you can:

  • Toggle April on or off on demand
  • Hide the tweak’s welcome messages
  • Left, Center, or Right-align the date and time text
  • Make the text bold
  • Enable compact date format
  • Manually adjust the text alignment
  • Customize the Status Bar’s time label
  • Customize the date subtitle label
  • Display the battery percentage
  • Remove the date from the Lock screen altogether
  • Remove the No Notifications text
  • Hide the Status Bar’s time
  • Remove the device route label from the Now Playing interface
  • Remove the device route button from the Now Playing interface
  • Make the Now Playing interface’s album art larger
  • Hide the Lock screen’s Quick Action buttons from view (while maintaining their functionality)
  • Remove the Lock screen’s Quick Action buttons entirely (no functionality)
  • Use 3D or Haptic Touch for Quick Actions
  • Display alternate Quick Action icons
  • Change the system tint
  • And more…

The developer includes an Apply button at the top-right of the preference pane so that you can save any changes you make on demand.

One of our favorite parts about the new April tweak is that it’s free, and if that wasn’t compelling enough, it’s also particularly exciting that it provides a lot of different options for customizing your handset’s Lock screen. Those interested in trying the tweak out for themselves can download it for free from the Daydream repository via their preferred package manager. The tweak supports all jailbroken iOS 13 devices.

If you aren’t already using the Daydream repository, then you can add it to your package manager via the following URL:
