Exiwall tweak adds depth to the wallpaper on Lock Screen


iOS 16 introduced a feature, known from watchOS, that adds depth to the wallpaper on the Lock Screen. It makes a wallpaper 3D by selecting the foreground of the picture and setting it in front of the actual time. Exiwall tweak does the same but on iOS 14.

Add Exiwall Repo to your package manager.

What is Exiwall?

Exiwall is a jailbreak tweak that brings a very fun feature to iOS 14. It copies the iOS 16 wallpaper depth effect on the Lock Screen for iOS 14. Exiwall tweak generates depth effect wallpapers where you can place part of the subject in the wallpaper above the date/time.

On iOS 16 depth effect wallpapers require iPhone Xs or above (A12+) but with the Exiwall tweak, you can use this effect also on your older iPhones. Jailbreak profess again that these kinds of new features are not limited to the hardware but are only limited by Apple's will.

Once installed, the Exiwall tweak adds a new dedicated preference pane to the Settings app from where you can enable the tweak and respring your iDevice. The tweak works on iPhone 6s and above and requires iOS 14.0 - iOS 14.8.1 (not compatible with iPads).

Exiwall uses complex machine learning analysis on your device to create the depth effect on your Lock Screen. It works best on images with big well-lit subjects with contrasting backgrounds. It might have a poor effect on low-light images, grainy photos, or those which have no contrasting subjects. This is not a Lock Screen customization tweak.

Be aware that Exiwall-generated wallpapers are not compatible with the perspective zoom feature (moving of wallpaper when the device is tilted). It only supports portrait orientation and photos and will not work with video wallpapers.

Exiwall provides limited compatibility with Lock Screen customization tweaks such as Jellyfish, Kalm, Quart, WeatherLS, SimpleTime, Fabric 2, Complications, Watermelon, Axon, Analog, Diary, and DualClock 2. It will not work with Vartaman, Ventana, Helix, Xen Html, and LockPlus.

Exiwall only supports placing the wallpaper subject over the date/time view. Other items like complications/widgets/lock icon/battery charging indicators will always appear above the wallpaper subject. Exiwall was released by Foxfort Mobile the developer behind PortraitXI.

To change a wallpaper simply enable the tweak from the new pane available in the Settings app. Next, navigate to Wallpapers, and select a solid wallpaper. Exiwall will generate a depth wallpaper. Scale and freely move it to get the perfect look of the Lock Screen background.
