How to get iOS 7 ‘silde to unlock’ feature on older firmwares [iOS]

iOS 7 is definitely one of the major changes Apple made this year . The OS hadn’t changed much since 2007 and it was time for Apple to make a move considering the intense competition it’s facing with Android . iOS 7 features many changes and enhancements and one of them is the lockscreen which has been completely revamped . The lockscreen’s interface and functionality is completely different compared to previous firmwares .

Those days are gone when we had to put our finger on the slider and slide it to unlock. ¬†With iOS 7, you can just slide your finger left to right anywhere on the screen to unlock the device . If your on iOS 6 and wished you had this feature too then good news is that a recently released cydia tweak called Unlock7 allows users running iOS 6 to experience the iOS 7 ‘slide to unlock’ on their device . It also increases the font size of the clock giving it an iOS 7 look . Heres how it looks on an iPhone running iOS 6 :

Unfortunately Unlock7 only adds the unlock feature to iOS 6, it lacks the ability to redesign the lockscreen to look much like iOS 7 though you can download one from many Winterboard themes available on Cydia to get your device look as close as possible to the iOS 7 lockscreen .

So far, the tweak is working smoothly and I would recommend anyone with iOS 6 to grab this tweak as soon as poosible . It’s free and available on ModMyi repo .
