New Cydia Tweak Disables The Lockout When Connecting iPhone To CarPlay Unit

Those folks who have jailbroken iOS 10 devices have an ability to disable the lockout when connecting iPhone to a CarPlay unit installing new jailbreak tweak dubbed as CarPlay Lockout. Normally when you use CarPlay, your iOS 10 iPhone naturally shows the screen shown below for several seconds before automatically falling asleep and kicking you out to the Lock screen.

The recently released CarPlay Lockout tweak prevents your phone from locking you out and rather returns you to the Home screen after a brief display of the CarPlay screen.

How To Disable The Lockout When Connecting iPhone To CarPlay Unit

iOS allows you to bypass the CarPlay screen manually by pressing the Home button while it’s showing, but CarPlay Lockout tweak eliminates this unnecessary physical step, making this process automated.

So how you can disable the lockout when connecting iPhone to a CarPlay unit. First, download and install CarPlay Lockout from Cydia. The tweak doesn’t have any options to configure. It means that after installation so you should start to notice that the CarPlay screen disappears faster than before and how you’re kicked to the Home screen instead of the Lock screen.

This small enhancement will allows you or your passenger(s) to continue using the iPhone after connecting to a CarPlay unit without any interruptions and without having to press the Home button to exit the screen.

It’s indeed a tedious nitpick of Apple’s stock iOS functionality, but depending on how often you use CarPlay while you’re in the car, it might be worth trying for the added benefits of both hands-free convenience and time savings. Despite how minor it sounds, sometimes it’s the small details that can change a near-perfect experience to a perfect one.

CarPlay Lockout tweak is available for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository and is compatible with jailbroken iOS 10 devices that support CarPlay addition
