Despite the super speedy Touch ID button that barely gives you a chance to peek at the lockscreen, this particular part of iOS remains important to this day. From the lockscreen you get to see what’s happening on your iPhone or perform certain tasks without unlock the device. While lockscreen is quite good as it is there’s room for improvement, too. To make lockscreen more useful and to help you do more without unlocking your iPhone or iPad, we have gathered a list of 5 lockscreen tweaks that we think you should download on your jailbroken device. Read on to learn about 5 lockscreen Cydia tweaks for iOS 9 that make it more useful.
Lockscreen features a music widget by default, which makes it easier for users to control music. The widget is useful but it lacks the all important shuffle and repeat buttons. If you want to shuffle your playlist or want to repeat the now playing song, you have to unlock your iPhone and launch the Music app to do so. Carrot tweak solves this problem by adding the two new buttons right on the music widget. You can download Carrot lockscreen Cydia tweak for free from the BigBoss repo.
3D Touch feature is cool but there’s nothing you can do with it on the lockscreen. 3D Touch Notifications changes that by allowing users to peek and pop on notifications belonging to different apps including Calendar, Facetime, Messages, Phone and WhatsApp (3DTN for WhatsApp tweak required). In addition to bringing 3D Touch peek and pop to lockscreen this tweak also adds the very same functionality to the notification center. The tweak is available in Cydia for free.
IfFound3 adds the super useful IfFound button on the lockscreen, making it possible for anyone who finds your lost phone to contact you via call, message or email. the tweak also offers some additional features that can help you finding information about your lost iPhone. IfFound3 lockscreen Cydia tweak is available in Cydia for $1.

You can also change the text color and change the way other elements appear. With miniTime you can choose from different style options and layouts. miniTime is available for free in BigBoss repo.
iPhone features a very handy flashlight feature that lets you turn on the camera flash whenever you are in a dark place. Flash tweak makes turning flashlight on easier by adding the flash button on the lockscreen. What makes this tweak special is that it uses device’s ambient light sensor to sense when you are in dark and adds the button. The button disappears when you are in a place that has sufficient lighting. You can download Flash lockscreen tweak from Cydia for free.
