The Lock screen is the first thing you see every time you pick up your iPhone to use it, so we’d completely understand if you wanted to personalize it. Apple doesn’t allow much by way of Lock screen customization out of the box, but if you’re jailbroken, then you’ll definitely want to check out a free jailbreak tweak called Dress by iOS developer Litten.

In a nutshell, Dress is probably the most comprehensive Lock screen customization jailbreak tweak that you can get without paying money. It offers a plethora of useful options that will make you excited to get your hands dirty with customization, and best of all, it can get you that personalized Lock screen experience you’ve been looking for.

When you install Dress, you’ll immediately want to navigate to your Settings app where you’ll find a dedicated preference pane chock-full of options:

Here, users can:

  • Toggle Dress on or off on demand
  • Configure custom Time and Date settings
  • Configure custom Face ID Lock settings
  • Configure custom Home Bar settings
  • Configure custom Control Center Grabber settings
  • Configure custom Swipe text settings
  • Configure custom Notification settings
  • Configure custom Quick Action settings
  • Adjust automatic lock duration
  • And more…

Digging deeper, we’ll show you all the options the tweak provides out of the box:

The developer includes a way to reset all settings to their defaults at the bottom of the primary preference pane. Moreover, you can respring your device to save any changes you make here.

At the time of this writing, Dress is considered a public beta and more features are being prepared for a future update that will be released in the near future. That aside, we think this tweak is a substantial bargain for its free price tag, as it provides a ton of features that would otherwise only be possible through the installation of several free and paid tweaks.

Those interested in trying Dress can download it for free from Litten’s beta repository via their preferred package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices and is open source on the developer’s GitHub page.

If you’re not already using Litten’s beta repository, then you can add it to your preferred package manager via the following URL:
