Slide To Unlock is one of the most unique and old features in iOS devices, now if you are a true Apple fan, then you don’t want to change it at all but for the others, they might have gotten tired from it and might be looking for something new and fast, like tap or Swipe to unlock the screen, instead of sliding across. Apple on the other side, discourages all these things, as Steve Jobs presented it in 2007, why would Apple go against it, as in 2007 it was quite an achievement for Apple:
“To unlock the phone, I just take my finger and slide it across. Wanna see that again? We wanted something you couldn’t do by accident in your pocket. Just slide it across – BOOM.”
But as the time has passed, Apple remained at the old things, instead of adopting new things according to the Time. But thanks to Jailbreak Tweaks, users of Apple can try different things that are not allowed by Apple on a regular base. TaptoUnlock 7 is another Jailbreak Tweak, that allows users to unlock their device just by a Single Tap. This tweak replaces the original Slide across screen, with a Single Tap screen. You will see a Tap button on the bottom, upon tapping that your device will be unlocked, quite easy and faster than Sliding across.
It also offers, some other customizations, where you can tap anywhere on the screen to unlock, instead of the specific space. Well this Tweak is not useful for all the iPhone 5s users, where they have the option to unlock via Fingerprint scanner, but if you own any other iOS device, this is the best tweak to change the typical lock screen. TapToUnlock 7 is available on Cydia store for only $0.99, Want to know, how you can get it, follow the rest.
