Ever since I got my first Apple Watch I have been obsessed with the idea of Apple bringing watchOS inspired Complications to the iPhone. If you don’t know this, Complications are tiny Apple Watch widgets that allow users to quickly view useful at a glance information right on the watch face. The presence of Complications means you don’t have to unlock the Apple Watch and open specific apps to view information.
While Apple has yet to consider bringing watchOS-inspired Complications to iOS, a new tweak called Complications has answered prayers of Apple fans. This newly released jailbreak tweak brings pretty much the same Complications to the iPhone lockscreen as are available on the Apple Watch. The great thing about this tweak is that it does not require user to have an Apple Watch, so even if you don’t own an Apple Watch you can add useful complication to iPhone’s lockscreen.
Complications tweak offers animated lockscreen Complications or widgets for several apps including Music, Timer, Battery, Weather, News, Home, Mail, Messages, Find My and more. In addition to app shortcuts the tweak also enables users to add info based Complications to the lockscreen such as widgets that show Activity Rings, UV Index, Sunrise or Sunset Times, Weather Conditions, Wind, Chances of rain, Campus and more.
Tweak’s developer says Complications tweak does not sacrifice battery life and will not affect your device’s running time. Users can customize which widgets appear on their lockscreen and change the number of visible widgets, and choose how many rows and columns they want.
To replace a Complication with another one you have to simply long press on the complication. When you long press an extensive popup menu appears showing you the complete list of available options.
Complications tweak is available in Cydia or Sileo through the Packix repo. The tweak costs $1.99 and works with iOS 11 or later, including iOS 13.
