Those of us with OLED iPhones have long wanted some sort of alerting solution that could inform users about their device’s pending notifications while the display is off. While Apple has yet to take advantage of iPhone’s OLED display, we have seen various tweaks such as AOD and Tritium over the past few years that have tried to bring an always-on notification display feature to the iPhone.
Today a new tweak called Dots 2, which is the sequel to the original Dots tweak brings its own version of alerting system for iPhone’s idle state. Dots 2 adds colored and pulsing dots to the iPhone lockscreen that inform the user about pending notifications. Dots 2 not only tells the user that they have pending alerts, but also informs them about which app the notifications belong to by coloring each individual dot in the color of its corresponding app’s icon.
With Dots 2 users get multiple customization options that enable users to personalize the look and feel of the Dots. From Settings you can change the size of dot and pulse, toggle the always-on function of the tweak and more.
The tweak also features parallax header and option for users to choose between default app icon or a SnowBoard theme’s icon as reference for dot’s color. Dots 2 also enables users to toggle the Tap to Wake functionality of the iPhone.
You can download Dots 2 tweak from Cydia’s Packix repo where it is available for $1.99. If you already own the original Dots tweak, then you can download Dots 2 for free. The tweak is fully compatible with iOS 13.0 or later including iOS 13.3.
