We’ve seen many requests on social media communities such as /r/jailbreak and other social channels wanting an iOS 16-inspired Lock Screen experience on jailbroken devices running older firmware. Therefore, iOS developer Hyperixa has released a new jailbreak tweak named Helix that offers an iOS 16-like Lock Screen experience to jailbroken iOS 14 devices.
Helix isn’t an exact clone of the iOS 16 Lock Screen, but it offers a similar experience and many of the same features that come with a stock iOS 16 install. To that end, the Lock Screen allows various customizations, such as adding widgets and selecting different font styles for the text shown.
Helix’s Lock Screen personalization is simple. Jailbreakers need tap and hold on the object on the LS to appear editing options for customizing and removing things.
