Customize iPhone Completely with our How to Change Lock Screen on iPhone Guide
- Firstly, you can choose from a set of 4 different lock screen themes on your iDevice. While all of them look appealing to us, we personally recommend the Conceptual theme. You can also select the font type used for each of the themes then and there.
- Next comes the interface section which contains widget, toggles, background, and battery percentage tweaks. The background settings let you select a blur background for your device lock screen.
- The best feature we found integrated within this tweak is the ability to add and modify widgets on your iDevice lock screen. You can choose to display Weather, Calender and RSS information right on your device lock screen with simple swiping up.
- Coming to the Toggles widget, we are quite impressed with the clutter-free layout and neat interface Convergance has to offer. Toggles can be accessed by simply swiping left to right on your device lock screen.
Once configured, the toggles will actually look like the one in screenshot below.
- The advanced section of this tweak lets you customize text color, as well as translucency. Here’s where you can also select custom icons for notifications to suite your lock screen theme.
