Are you a fan of Apple’s good old iOS 6? Sure we at SwapMyApp are, and some of the features that iOS 6 brought along can never be replicated by iOS 7 or even the upcoming iOS 8 as a matter of fact, like the lock screen. Never mind, in case you have jailbroken your iDevice including iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, you can get any customization on your lock screen or feature you want, back on your iOS 7 powered iDevice.
Talking about good old 3D style dock in iOS 6, it has been one of the most significant features iOS users miss in their iDevices running on iOS 7 or above. With iOS 8 release around the corner, we can not really expect a jailbreak coming any time soon for iOS 8, but if you are still levelled on iOS 7.0.6 or below, here’s a good chance to get that good old iOS 6 classic dock back on your iOS 7. Classic Dock is the new jailbreak tweak that adds OS X style 3D dock back to your iOS 7 powered iDevice. So here’s how to get it.
THINGS YOU NEED:
- Jailbroken iPhone 4 or above.
- Working 3G or WiFi network.
- Little patience. 😀
