iOS 7 changed the look of the dock quite a bit. Now, it appears as a blurry transparent layer over your wallpaper, rather than a glass shelf as shown in iOS 6.
With a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed DockShift by iOS developer NG, you can now adjust the transparency level and blurriness of the iOS 7 dock background to your liking, as shown above.
DockShift adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand. In addition, you will find a list of options for transparency and blurriness:
The options you have for applying to the dock include the following:
- Milk glass - opaque
- Milk glass - bit less opaque
- Milk glass - less opaque
- Milk glass - bit clear
- Milk glass - clearer
- Milk glass - clear
- Dark milk glass - opaque
- Dark milk glass - bit less opaque
- Blurried - most blurry
- Blurried - in between
- Blurried - clearer
With all of the options available to you, you're sure to find the right style for your iOS 7 dock. Whether you like the see-through look, the blurry look, or the opaque look, there's a style there for you.
If you want to give DockShift a try, it's available right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for free.
