Download a Windows 10 Inspired Lock Screen for iPhone & iPad
If you're a fan of Windows 10, and happen to be an iPhone or iPad owner as well, then you might wanna look into Ventana.
Ventana Adds a Windows 10 Inspired Lock Screen to Your iPhone & iPad
Even with iOS 11 Beta, the lock screen on the iPhone and iPad remains unchanged in a lot of ways. There's so much Apple can do for users, but it has decided to let that extra screen real estate go to waste. However, thanks to the jailbreak community, there are ways you can spice up the lock screen.
A new jailbreak tweak that goes by the name Ventana takes some cues from Windows 10 and makes good use of the extra screen real estate left alone by Apple on the lock screen. It adds the ability to swipe up and unlock your device. But that's not all, it gives the entire lock screen a major overhaul by introducing some Modern UI elements along with spicing up the notifications system.
Here's the complete set of features of the Ventana tweak as per Cydia.
1. Slide up to unlock, even on iOS 10!
2. Support for using native notifications and notification tweaks on iOS 10!
3. Custom Metro-inspired notifications on all iOS versions! (Optional on iOS 10)
4. Option to group notifications and sort them by app
5. Media Controls inspired by desktop Windows 10 (for iPad) or Windows 10 mobile (for iPhone)
6. Quick reply support in notifications (iOS 9 and 10 only)
7. Siri ("Cortana-like") suggestions on the lock screen (iPad only)
8. Force touch support in notifications (iOS 10/native style only)
9. Full, unhindered access to lock screen widgets and camera (iOS 10 only)
10. Option to enable lock screen clock seconds
Now, it must be made abundantly clear at this point that Ventana is a jailbreak-only tweak. It's available to download straight from the BigBoss repo in Cydia and costs money as well. The tweak is also compatible to work with a wide range of iOS versions - this includes iOS 8, 9 and 10.
If you are a fan of the Windows 10 lock screen, and always wanted something similar on your phone or tablet, then Ventana is the tweak for you.
