This tweak gives iOS’ native Weather widget an animated background

Among all the widgets that can be activated via your iPhone or iPad’s Today page, perhaps one of my favorites is Apple’s native Weather widget. On one hand, it’s particularly concise and can be expanded to show hourly forecast information; but at the same time, it’s particularly bland, especially when compared to decked out alternatives such as Yahoo! Weather.

Given the circumstances afoot, we’re particularly excited to show you a newly released jailbreak tweak called AnimatedWeatherWidget by iOS developer Cole Cabral. Just as the name implies, this tweak updates the background of your iOS device’s native Weather widget to display the same animated background that you’d typically observe in the Weather app itself.

Carabiner gives your iPhone’s Home screen a more unified user experience

Apart from a few refreshed application icons and a nice new wallpaper here and there, Apple hasn’t done much to improve the Home screen experience since the original iPhone. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise to anyone that it’s a point of interest when it comes to customization on jailbroken handsets.

One such example is a brand-new jailbreak tweak release dubbed Carabiner by iOS developer LaughingQuoll. As shown in the screenshot example above, Carabiner crams several interfaces into the Home screen, providing a gorgeous all-in-one experience that provides more information at a glance.

This tweak replaces your iPhone’s ‘swipe up to unlock’ text with weather info

If you’ve been using an iPhone for more than a week, then you probably don’t need to be reminded to “swipe up to unlock” or “press home to unlock.” Apple designs its devices to display this text whenever you’re looking at your locked handset’s Lock screen, and to some, it feels unnecessary.

If you’re ready to rid yourself of that silly text with something more useful, then chances are you’ll come to appreciate a newly-released and free jailbreak tweak called WeatherUnlockText by iOS developer XCXiao. This tweak replaces the standard text string with weather information for your current location, as shown in the screenshot example above.

Speculum gives your Lock screen a customizable aesthetic upgrade

If you’re in search of a fresh and aesthetically-pleasing Lock screen experience on your iPhone or iPad, then you might take an interest in a newly-released and free jailbreak tweak called Speculum by iOS developer LacertosusDeus.

As shown in the screenshot examples above, Speculum augments the Lock screen experience with customizable new features, including custom text alignment, formatting, colorization, and even a helpful new weather display.

Manta: An uncompromising unified Lock screen experience for jailbroken iPhones

One thing I’ve long wanted from iOS, but still don’t have to this very day, is a fully-integrated Lock screen experience, complete with notifications, weather information, and widgets in addition to the expected date and time indicator.

While the Today page is a compromising feature on Apple’s behalf, it still doesn’t provide that unified experience I’ve wanted for so long. Fortunately, a newly-released jailbreak tweak called Manta by iOS developer Ben Giannis addresses my complaints with the stock iOS Lock screen, and it does so in an incredibly pleasant manner.

Customize your Lock screen text’s aesthetics with Fabric

One of the best ways to show your jailbroken device off to the rest of the world is to customize how it looks, and a newly-released jailbreak tweak dubbed Fabric by iOS developer CreatureSurvive will help you do just that.

As you might’ve noticed in the screenshot examples above, Fabric lets you get creative with the text strings that appear on your Lock screen; this includes, but isn’t limited to, the date and time. Not only can you change how large the text is, but you can choose custom fonts and formatting, among other things.
