Of all the smartphone manufacturers, Apple is the one that imposes most number of restrictions. You can’t change all the default options on an iPhone or an iPad. For the same reason, users have to suppress their desires to customise their devices.
But, people just can’t quench their thirst for personalisation. Maybe, that’s what paved the path for jailbreaking. In short, it is a process of delving deep into the filesystem of the platform to gain access to an elated set of privileges.
In case you are naive, you might not know about the infinite possibilities of a jailbroken handset. Let me take this chance to enlighten you. You know an incoming call alert takes the whole screen on your iPhone, don’t you? Well, with CallBar jailbreak tweak, you can minimise it.
Moreover, it’s possible to change display resolution of older devices, disable network access for individual apps, enable NFC Shortcuts automation, get screen orientation lock prompt, and more. There are thousands of tweaks available to transform your phone into what you always wished for.
In the past, we shared with you a method to add widgets directly on iPhone lock screen. Guess what! Fresh to the table is a similar jailbreak tweak (Complications) and instead of regular ones, it brings Apple Watch widgets to iOS.
Each widget beautifully animates and updates throughout the day, without sacrificing battery life. Get all the information you need with just a glance. Tap a complication to quickly open its app to get even more info. Custom x/y positioning lets you move the widgets to fit into your setup. You can even choose the number of rows and columns you want.
Apple Watch not required!
Simply press and hold a complication to choose from an ever-growing list of options.
So yeah, you don’t need to possess an Apple Watch to have the widgets (except Activity Rings) on your iPhone lock screen. Nonetheless, you may end up facing some troubles if you happen to be using Fabric customisation tweak.
Complications isn’t free and you can bag it for $1.99 from Packix Repo. Bear in mind that it doesn’t support iterations below iOS 11. Speaking of iPad, we don’t see a reason why the tablets Cupertino lacks compatibility.
Note:- Stay tuned to our iOS section for more jailbreak tweaks.
