The best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14’s animations

FastUp – $0.99

If you’re just fine with the way your animations look in iOS or iPadOS 14, then you may not need to change them. But that doesn’t mean you can’t adjust them.

FastUp is a handy jailbreak tweak that lets users customize animation speeds throughout the operating system, which can help you zip through some of those animations that seem to drag out longer than you’d like.

You can read all about FastUp and what it can do for you in our full review post.

LottieLockscreen – FREE

The Lock Screen is something you look at every time you pick up your iPhone to use it, so it’s a shame that Apple doesn’t do much to make it aesthetically pleasing – or at least exhilarating to look at.

LottieLockscreen solves that problem by integrating Lottie-style animations across the Lock Screen user interface, which includes the time indicator and the individual Quick Action buttons for the Camera and the Flashlight near the bottom.

Everything you need to know about LottieLockscreen can be found in our full review post.

Vide – FREE

When the Now Playing interface just doesn’t do it for you anymore, that’s probably because it lacks any sort of motion.

Apple should really get onto the bandwagon of making things fun to look at, but you can get a head start with a free jailbreak tweak called Vide, which promotes customization of the Now Playing interface and the integration of an animated waveform-style audio visualizer.

You can learn all about Vide and where you can get it from in our full review post.

Cylinder Reborn – FREE

A no-brainer for those who like animations is Cylinder Reborn, a tweak that lets users select custom paging animations for the Home Screen so that swiping from one page to another is a lot more exhilarating.

Cylinder Reborn comes with a slew of different animations to choose from, and it’s very easy to configure. It’s also one of the best ways to show off to others why having a jailbreak is cooler than not.

You can learn more about Cylinder Reborn and what you can do with it in our full review post.

MagSafe Controller – FREE

Not all iPhones support MagSafe, and we get it, the charging animation that Apple made especially for MagSafe is neat.

If you have an iPhone that doesn’t support MagSafe, but you still want to see the MagSafe charging animation every time you connect to a power source, then you might want a free jailbreak tweak called MagSafe Controller since it does exactly that.

You can learn all about MagSafe Controller and the things you can do with it in our full review post.

LottieStatusBar – FREE

Who said that Lottie-style animations had to be limited to the Lock Screen? Not us!

LottieStatusBar is a free jailbreak tweak that brings Lottie-inspired animations to various elements of the Status Bar, including the battery level indicator, Wi-Fi signal strength, time indicator, and more.

You can find out more about LottieStatusBar in our full review post.

FuturistiCam – $1.40

Even the Camera app can be more fun to use with animations.

FuturistiCam is a jailbreak tweak that brings futuristic-styled overlays to the Camera app’s viewfinder. Those include one inspired by Stargate, an on-screen guide, augmentations to the manual focus effect, histograms along the borders, and more.

Examples of the tweak at work for anyone interested in such an experience can be found in our full review post.

AnimeMyScreen Pro – $1.99

Another animation that’s often overlooked is the locking animation, which can be easily customized with a jailbreak tweak called AnimeMyScreen Pro.

The locking animation is what you see any time you lock your device via the sleep button, and this tweak lets you have almost any animation you want for that purpose. One of my favorites is the old-fashioned TV off animation, but there are countless others if that’s not your cup of tea.

Visualyser – FREE

If you like the idea if an audio visualizer, but don’t want something eccentric, then Visualyser could be the right way to go.

This tweak adds an animated audio visualizer right to the Status Bar when you have audio playing, and it’s so subtle in its small appearance that it won’t overwhelm your eyes.

You can find out where you can get Visualyser from in our full review post.

LottieNotifications – FREE

Lottie-styled animations can be enjoyed just about anywhere, and a free jailbreak tweak called LottieNotifications brings them right to your incoming notification banners.

The tweak is highly configurable, so you can get the aesthetic you want out of your Lottie-inspired notifications, but in addition to that, you can show your friends why having a jailbreak is still cool even in 2021.

You can learn more about LottieNotifications and how it works in our full review post.

Green Potion – $1.50

Your iPhone’s battery level is likely very important to you as you discern whether you need to plug your handset into a power source throughout the day or not. But the battery level indicator in the Status Bar is both small and unexciting.

Green Potion is a jailbreak tweak that moves the battery level indicator to the entire display, allowing a unique liquid-style animation to fill the screen to a certain level depending on your current battery level.

This tweak offers a fun way to gauge your battery level, and if you want to learn more about it, then be sure to check out our full review post.


Many of us have become so accustomed to our iPhones’ and iPads’ stock animations that we don’t even really know what we want until we see it. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of jailbreak tweaks that can provide more aesthetically pleasing animations on these devices.
