The iPhone X is a powerful new beast. Whether you are still debating on whether to get the new phone, or if you just want to know what makes this device stand out, I've taken a look at the 25 best features of the iPhone X.
iPhone X is set to hide previews of notifications on the Lock screen by default, only revealing them when the user has been authenticated by Face ID. While a great privacy feature, I find it to be more of an inconvenience at times, and fortunately, there is an option to disable that and always show notification previews on iPhone X Lock screen.
Although we've already written a lot about iPhone X there are still some aspects to it that we haven't explored in detail, especially its Lock screen and Home screen experiences.
OLEDification is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Shyam Lad that captures the notification experience of various devices with OLED displays and brings it to the Lock screen of your jailbroken iPhone.
Once installed, the Lock screen interface disappears when you receive notifications. Instead, you’re shown an immersive full-screen experience in which the background is dark, and the notification content itself makes up the only color you see on your display.
iOS 11 includes a new shortcut that allows users to temporarily disable Touch ID right from their Lock screen without the need to permanently disable the fingerprint sensor in Settings.
One of the newest jailbreak tweaks to hit the Cydia store this week is TransparNC (iOS 10) by iOS developer FromDerik.
This tweak gives your inbound notifications on the Lock screen and in Notification Center a polarizing and fully transparent makeover, eliminating the background that generally sets your notifications apart from your background.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, iOS 11 comes with a redesigned Now Playing Lock screen interface. It’s sleeker and takes up less space so you can manage your music playback and see missed notifications in the same place more easily.
Now, a new jailbreak tweak called Lysithea X by iOS developer ijapija00 brings this iOS 11 Now Playing Lock screen interface to jailbroken iOS 10 devices.
The Lock screen clock appears at the top center of the Lock screen on any stock device out of the box, but with a new free jailbreak tweak called TimeMover Lite by iOS developer NeinZedd9, you can re-position it anywhere you'd like.
If the concept sounds familiar, that’s because this is a free version of the TimeMover tweak that we showed you a couple of weeks ago, but it’s still plenty powerful.
A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed FancyNC by iOS developer Demy Kromhof makes your iPhone's banner notifications and widgets thinner, decreasing their visual footprint and pleasing the average minimalist.
Among the things it does to achieve the end result is remove both the bulky headers and the unsightly separator lines that appear on elements on both the Lock screen and in Notification Center.
Have you ever noticed that when you respring your jailbroken iOS 10 device, the passcode screen always appears after it boots back up?
A new free jailbreak tweak release called CanYouLikeNot by wizages prevents the passcode screen from appearing after every respring, which might be preferred on devices that are Touch ID-enabled.
WidgeficationX is a new free jailbreak tweak by Justin Petkovic that lets you customize the look of your widgets and notification banners by modifying their transparency values.
The tweak has a system-wide effect on your device, so you’ll see the changes throughout your many iPhone or iPad interfaces, whether you’re on the Lock screen, Home screen, or viewing Notification Center.
