Just a couple of years ago, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called Mochi by iOS developer Sugiuta that aesthetically improved the Lock Screen’s Music player. Not only was it naturally big and clunky at the time, but it lacked the customization that jailbreakers had come to know and love.
Today, we’re excited to show you the latest iteration of the aforementioned tweak dubbed Mochi15, also by Sugiuta, which brings comparable Music widget-boosting features to jailbroken iOS & iPadOS 15 devices.
Just like the original tweak, Mochi15 makes the Lock Screen’s Music player more configurable, unlocking new aesthetic possibilities that otherwise aren’t possible on a stock device. Some examples include:
- Changing the UI of the music player
- Changing the color of each button and label
- Changing the speed and interval of label scrolling
Once installed, Mochi15 adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where a variety of different options can be configured to your liking:
Things you can do here include:
- Enable or disable Mochi15 on demand
- Adjust the speed and interval options via a slider
- Change the blur type
- Enable or disable showing notifications
- Colorize the background view
- Colorize the artwork border
- Colorize the title and artist labels
- Colorize the Play, Pause, and Skip buttons
- Colorize the time slider
- Colorize the slider knob
- And more…
A respring button appears at the top right of the preference pane such that you can save your changes on demand.
Sugiuta says that Mochi15 is compatible with both iPhones and iPads, so long as they’re running a jailbroken installation of iOS or iPadOS 15.0-15.7.1, but it currently only supports rootful jailbreaks with rootless support hopefully coming in the future.
If you’re interested in giving Mochi15 a try for yourself, then you can purchase it for $1.49 from the Havoc repository via your favorite package manager app.
