Axon tweak is a Lock Screen notification system for iOS 15


Until iOS 16 Apple didn't change too much the notification system look on the Lock Screen. BlackBerry created BlackBerry Hub or known as Priority Hub to manage Lock Screen notifications per-app. Axon tweak delivers this feature for iOS devices.

Add Axon Repo to your package manager.

What is Axon?

Axon is a jailbreak tweak that changes the look of the notification list displayed on the Lock Screen. The developer introduces the tweak as a Priority Hub that supports iOS 11 – iOS 14, but you can also run it on the latest jailbreaks released for iOS 15 including XinaA15.

Nepeta created a port of BlackBerry's grouped notifications feature (introduced in BlackBerry 10) to the iOS Lock Screen, allowing users to filter missed notifications on a per-app basis. This feature makes managing notifications on iOS easier when you use tones of apps.

Once installed, the tweak adds a new preference pane to the Settings app from where you can toggle the tweak on and off and configure all options to your liking. There are a lot of options to choose from, but if you don't want to configure everything the default settings look great.

Axon tweak supports haptic feedback, dark mode, and various of styles for the notification look on your iPhone. All options can be configured from the configuration pane. From here you can also change the layout location vertically or use the auto mode.

Like the original Priority Hub tweak, Axon also sorts your missed incoming notifications by app on the Lock Screen. You can filter between notifications by tapping on the corresponding app icon that appears just underneath the date and time. This makes managing notifications more efficient. Axon tweak can also sort apps notification by latest, by count, and by app name.

There's not all yet. Change the tweak alignment, modify the spacing between icons, toggle on or off badges, add blur effect, choose selection style, or activate vertical mode that rotates Axon by 90 deg, and puts it to one of the sides and makes your notification smaller.

As mentioned before, Axon's Lock Screen notification system offers various styles to pick from. There is the default look, packed, compact, tiny, group (requires respring),and rounded group (requires respring). With all other options available you can get even more styles.

Axon tweak was released as an open source project through GitHub Repository under MIT license. Therefor, you can download, modify, and learn from the source code of this Lock Screen notification system tweak for iOS created by Nepeta and maintained by Baw Appie.

To modify and compile the source code of Axon it's required to use theos libraries and have knowledge of Objective-C and Logos programming languages. Theos is a very popular tweak development library that allows you to create tweaks without macOS and Xcode requirement.
