The iPhone 5S is widely expected to pack a sapphire-laden fingerprint sensor, which should make the process of unlocking the device a lot more secure. But until it happens, if it indeed ever does happen, the traditional passcode / password tools are your best hope of securing your device natively. If you're jailbroken, however, there are plenty of additional options at your disposal, and from the makers of the very enjoyable Piano Passcode tweak comes XPasscode, another Cydia gem that allows you to create your very own themes.
Most of us like to to keep our personal information safe and secure, and since our smartphones have become the foremost hubs for such content as banking, email and private messages, it's no surprise that security is high on the agenda of many an iPhone user. The native iOS Passcode feature is useful, but fundamentally flawed, because while a long, alphanumeric password can prevent anybody else from gaining access, typing it in every time we want to play a bit of Angry Birds can become rather cumbersome. As such, most of us opt for the famous four-digit Passcode, but while it's relatively convenient, a potential intruder wouldn't need to be too eagle-eyed to spot those rather blatant finger taps. Luckily, there's a tweak at hand to help, and it goes by the name of CodeScrambler. And we’ve got the details after the break!
The music controls on the lock screen of iOS, which are brought about with a simple double tap of the home button, are very useful in allowing you to play, pause, or skip through your music library without having to go and open the Music app itself. But if you're one of those people that like to skip to certain parts of a song, you have to go through the tiresome rigmarole of unlocking, perhaps typing in a passcode, and opening up the music app before scrubbing to find that favorite part of the track.
