Customize iPhone’s Locking Animation With Vespera (iOS 10)

A new Cydia tweak known as Vespera (iOS 10) by iOS developer muris allows you to customize iPhone’s locking animation. That's why I like my device to be jailbroken as jailbreaking offers the way to make some stock parts of iOS alive, in this case locking animation.

When you install Vespera (iOS 10), you’ll notice immediately upon trying to lock your device that an old TV animation takes place. You can choose the animation you like from the preference pane, which you’ll find in the Settings app:

From there, you can toggle the tweak on or off on demand, choose an animation of your choice, and configure the animation duration length. You can pick from any of the following animations:
  • TV
  • TV (Inverted)
  • Fade out
  • Slide up
  • Zoom out
  • Zoom out (Inverted)
  • Suck down

Once you're satisfied with your choice it is recommended to respring your device to apply and save your changes. If you don’t, your SpringBoard might crash when you lock your device for the first time after changing the settings. If it does, you can just restart the SpringBoard, and you’ll see your new animation as you’d expect it to look.

It should be noted that the developer said that more animations would come soon. We have no idea what kinds of animations are planned, but they’re sure to be better than the stock animation in any case.

So if you want to customize iPhone’s locking animation and change it custom look then Vespera (iOS 10) is available from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for only $0.99. The tweak supported only jailbroken iOS 10 devices.
