Those with jailbroken devices can disable the Spotlight widget page on the Home screen in iOS 10 with new Cydia release, dubbed as NoTodayView. With this jailbreak tweak you can turn off the Spotlight widget page individually on both the Home screen and Lock screen, depending on your demand.
Let's learn how NoTodayView tweak works in details.
How To Disable The Spotlight Widget Page On The Lock And Home Screens In iOS 10
In order to get ability to disable the Spotlight widget page on the Home screen in iOS 10 head to Cydia and grab NoTodayView tweak for free.
What is really important is that NoTodayView tweak allows you to turn on/off the Spotlight widget page from the Lock screen and Home screen individually, so you can continue to work the functional page from the Lock screen and still stay on Home screen.
You may know about Mobius jailbreak tweak that allowed you to infinitely scroll on the iOS Home screen and while within folders. But with iOS 10 release it was killed and now NoTodayView gives you even more functionality in iOS 10.
What is more the tweak won’t turn off the Spotlight widget page from Notification Center. In this way you’re not completely locked out from this functionality if you turn it off from the Home screen or Lock screen. This can be helpful as from time to time the widgets you might use can come in handy.
NoTodayView tweak will add its preference pane to the Settings app. From there you can choose where it should take action. You’ll also find there toggle switches individually for the Home screen and Lock screen.
So if you want to use Home screen modification tweak that was killed with iOS 10 release, then NoTodayView refreshes the jailbreak experience on your jailbroken iOS 10 device. Note that NoTodayView tweak works only with iOS 10 device so if those on iOS 9 are out of luck.
