The “Slide to Unlock” feature of iPhone changes the way we answer calls or unlock the phone. Before the debut of iPhone, we used to click on the “Answer” button to pick up a call. With iPhone, you use the slider to answer a call.
The slider is fancy and works pretty great. But I have heard from some iPhone users that they are looking for tweak or hack to switch back to the old way – Tap to unlock.
So, is there any way to change the “Slide to Unlock” back to “Tap to Unlock”?
With cydia, there is always a hack for that! If you would like to switch back to “Tap to Unlock”, simply download a hack called “Padlock Tap to Unlock” from cydia. The hack requires to have Winterboard installed. If you are a new user of Winterboard, you can check out this post about how to install and use Winterboard.
To enable the “Padlock” hack, launch Winterboard and select “Padlock Tap To Unlock”. Then click the Home button to activate it. Wait a few seconds. Once activated, you can just tap on the lock icon to Unlock your iPhone.
This hack does not only change the “Slide to unlock” slider. For other sliders such as “Slide to Power off”, they will also be switched to “Tap”.
