About a year ago, we showed you a jailbreak tweak called SubtleLock
by iOS developer Michael Poole. The tweak simplified the Lock Screen by slimming down the user interface elements to make more room for incoming Lock Screen notifications and viewing your Lock Screen wallpaper.
The developer has just released an iOS 7-compatible version of the tweak called SubtleLock (iOS 7)
and it is available in Cydia right now for $1.00. If you own SubtleLock already, it's a free upgrade. As you can probably guess, the tweak does the same thing as the original, but it's intended for iOS 7 only. You can see what the tweak actually does to your Lock Screen in the screenshot examples above.
SubtleLock (iOS 7) moves the lock up to the top left hand corner with smaller font, and moves the date to the top right hand corner. The Slide to Unlock text is moved down a little more from before the tweak was installed.
You'll also find a preferences pane in the Settings application where you can further configure how your Lock Screen will look:
You'll be able to hide or show the clock entirely, or even hide or show the clock seconds. You'll also find options for hiding or showing the slider, changing the label color, hiding or showing the date, hiding or showing the Camera Grabber, hiding or showing the Control Center Grabber, and hiding or showing the Notification Center Grabber.
SubtleLock (iOS 7) is intended for those iOS 7 minimalists out there, and it does a good job of making your Lock Screen feel more lightweight. If you want to give it a try, you'll find it in Cydia right now.
