Developed in a short duration of six hours, there’s a tweak that lets you play Pokemon Go on iPhone lock screen. There are quite many Jailbreak tweaks to tamper with Pokémon Go but this was perhaps the fastest one out of the oven.
The idea came from a user from r/Jailbreak subreddit who requested an app that would let him play Pokémon on iPhone lock screen. Developer Ziph0n noticed the request and got to the task. In a matter of hours he whipped out Pokémon Lock, the tweak to let you play Pokémon on iPhone lock screen.
Pokémon Lock is a simple tweak and is available for download from the developer’s own repository. The installation process is straightforward and you can get it with ease to play Pokemon right from iPhone lock screen.
Pokémon Lock: Play Pokemon Go on Lockscreen
Pokemon Go took the gaming world by a storm. Gaming enthusiasts had been playing their favorite Nintendo games on iOS devices since forever. However, with Pokémon Go, Nintendo officially stepped into the world of game apps for smartphones and smart devices. As soon as it was released, Jailbreak community set out to see what it could do with it.
Many tweaks emerged out to enhance the gameplay for users of Pokemon Go. The novelty of Pokemon Go is that the user needs to walk in reality to capture virtual Pokémon. The map on your iOS device shows you a destination where a certain Pokemon can be caught. You need to actually get out of your home and go to that location to get the cute monster albeit virtually.
This novelty, however, became annoying over time and Jailbreak community came to the rescue. Earlier we discussed the tweak with which you can tap on your map to simulate walk instead of actually walking to the destination to catch Pokémon. Today we will show you how you can play Pokémon Go on iPhone lock screen with Pokemon Lock.
Pokémon Lock is compatible with any iOS device with Jailbreak such as iPhone or iPad. All you need is a working Cydia and you can get the tweak from ziph0n repository with ease. The tweak doesn’t involve any complicated process of installation.

To install this tweak you need to go to the repository maintained by its developer Ziph0n.
Step 1: Launch Cydia and let all the sources reload.

Step 3: Now look for Pokémon Lock in the repository or use the Search tab and enter Pokémon Lock. Hit enter.
Step 4: Download and install Pokémon Lock.
Step 5: Disable passcode feature for your iPhone lock screen.

Playing Pokemon Go on iPhone Lockscreen
Remember to disable passcode for iPhone lock screen. If you don’t disable passcode, Pokémon Lock won’t work and your Pokémon Go app may crash. This is one downside of Pokémon Lock that’s really annoying.
Once you install Pokémon Lock, you may notice that your battery is consumed at a faster rate. Pokémon Lock does tend to use up battery faster so it’s wise to make appropriate arrangement if you’re going out for long time.
Good luck with your game. Hope you catch a lot of Pokémon and Pikachu on your quest.
