Hide iOS Lock Screen Notifications With MultiLS

Despite the high iOS 7 adoption rate, developers are still working on new and useful tweaks for those with older, jailbroken devices. With an iPhone 5 or earlier running iOS 6.1.2 there are many options available on Cydia. Many of these tweaks simulate iOS 7 features, and others such as MultiLS add new functionality to iOS.

Essentially, MultiLS adds a second lock screen to iOS. Incoming lock screen notifications are stored on a separate lock screen, hidden from view. Instead of popping up immediately, when a new message or alert arrives a slick glowing bar appears on the right side of the lock screen. The text in the slider bar also changes from "slide to unlock" to "slide to view".

This means iPhone and iPad owners who would like to keep their devices jailbroken are stuck with iOS 6.1.2 until iOS 7 is released.

The evad3rs have a stash of several other exploits they could use to put together a 6.1.3 jailbreak, however everything depends on how many bugs Apple fixes with the new firmware. In the meantime, those who have already jailbroken up to iOS 6.1.2 can continue to use Cydia as long as they don't upgrade.
