How To Know When Your iPhone Was Last Unlocked

Dubbed as LastTimeUnlocked, this new Cydia tweak knows the answer for question how to know when my iPhone was last unlocked by showing you exact time right on your device Lock screen, so you can’t miss it at all. As shown on the screenshot example below, LastTimeUnlocked tweak displays a convenient little timestamp at the bottom of the Lock screen, showing you when your smartphone or tablet was unlocked. Using this info you can easily find out whether or not someone is snooping in on your device, allowing you to take subsequent action later on.

Here is short review on how the LastTimeUnlocked tweak works and how to know when iPhone was last unlocked.

To get started you should grab the tweak for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. LastTimeUnlocked supports all jailbroken iOS 10 iPhones and iPads and comes with dedicated preferences pane in the Settings app. From there you can  turn it on or off on demand and change the text string:

Because you can change the text string manually, it is possible to easily change the language to anything besides English. You can even set the text to something inconspicuous so no one else can guess what the timestamp actually means.

LastTimeUnlocked tweak will be useful for those who have a ‘family-oriented’ device, such as an iPad, that everyone shares. For parents, this will serve as a way to know if the iPad is getting used by kids during hours when it shouldn’t be. 

If you have this idea that someone might be breaking into your iPhone behind your back, then it’s a no brainer to install this little package right away. With just a lone toggle switch and a way to customize the text, this tweak is really easy in use. Personally I like the way the information is displayed on my Lock screen: the text doesn't occupy a lot of space and doesn't covers any other element of the Lock screen.

As you know all modern wireless routers utilizes between 2.4GHz and 5 GHz for signal transmission to feed internet data to your wireless devices. It can be real challenge to figure out what channel you’re using from your iPhone. To do it you'll need to install an app or to get access to the router’s wireless settings.

WifiChannelBar tweak developed by Jeremy Kister offers an easy way to view Wi-Fi channel that your network is utilizing by displaying it right next to the Wi-Fi icon in your Status Bar.

Wi-Fi channel is helpful for those users who configure their Wi-Fi networks to improve performance by using non-overlapping channels. Such channel reduces interference from surrounding networks and helps you maintain your internet speed over a wireless connection on your device. So it is essential to select the proper channel.

So to display Wi-Fi channel in the Status Bar on your iPhone head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and search for WifiChannelBar tweak. It is available as a free download package and supports jailbroken iOS 10 devices.

WifiChannelBar doesn’t come with any options to configure. The tweak reveals whether your iPhone is using the 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi band of your router. For example, when you see such channels as: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or 11 this means know you’re using the 2.4GHz band. If you see anything else, then you’re using the 5GHz band. So once the tweak is installed, this channel info will be shown in the Status Bar. If you don't want the tweak to display this info anymore, just uninstall it.

WifiChannelBar tweak brings you an useful details about what channel your connected network is operating on. As for me I'm find this tweak useful as configure Wi-Fi networks for better performance.
