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.

Whenever your iOS 10 iPhone passcode is entered incorrectly too many times, a pop up alert message appears sauing “iPhone is disabled.” This prevents the device from being used for a temporary period of time and is intended to deter people who try to gain unauthorized access to your phone and personal data.

If you don't like that horror message then a new Cydia release called GoAway by iOS developer gilshahar7 brings the ability to customize the ‘iPhone is disabled’ text when failed passcode attempts on jailbroken device.

The tweak is totally free from Cydia’s BigBoss repo and works on all jailbroken iOS 10 devices. So grab it and install on your iPhone. Right after installation the tweak will add a dedicated preferences pane to the Settings app. From there you configure custom text for up to three different text strings that appear on this screen:

QuickDial Pro Brings Speed Dial Functionality On iOS 10 iPhone

Those who have jailbroken iOS device have a great chance to get speed dial functionality on iOS 10 iPhone with new jailbreak tweak. The Phone app in iOS comes with a Favorites tab where you can add your frequently contacted people so that you can look them up more quickly rather than going through the entire contacts list. Jailbreak tweak dubbed as QuickDial Pro provides a more simpler method of contacting your favorite people.

How To Get Speed Dial Functionality On iOS 10 iPhone

QuickDial Pro tweak adds a speed dial functionality to the stock Phone app allowing you to assign your favorite contacts to the dial keys. When you 3D Touch or tap and hold on a key assigned to a specific contact, a menu is displayed for calling, messaging, or placing a FaceTime call with that particular contact.

The big advantage of this tweak is that it supports both 3D Touch and non-3D Touch devices. If you don’t own a 3D Touch device, then you can long press on the dial keys to view the shortcut menu. This means you can use QuickDial Pro on any of your pre-iPhone 6s devices, including but not limited to: iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, etc. This is really cool.

If you interested in getting speed dial functionality on iOS 10 iPhone then grab QuickDial Pro from Cydia for only $0.99. Once you install the tweak, you can get started by heading to its preferences pane in Settings where you can set the contact number for each of the dial keys. You can add a maximum of ten contacts to your QuickDial Pro roster, so you might want to limit your choices to close family members and friends that you contact the most often.

After you assign your favorite contacts to the dial keys, you can start speed dialing them right away from the Phone app without having to perform a respring.

If you don't want to pay money then you can use a Lite version of this tweak known as QuickDial Lite, which carries fewer features and is available for free from Cydia.
