Make Your iPhone Behave Like An iPad with its Own Smart Cover

by Range

If you use an Apple Smart Cover – or something similar on your iPad – and wish you could have something like this on your iPhone, look no further because we’ve got you covered. This iPhone Smart Cover hack will work for many people dying to have this.

This hack requires you to have a jailbroken iPhone, so if you haven’t got one, it won’t work. Once you’ve got that, you’ll need to get a case, like TwelveSouth’s SurfacePad for iPhone, which is designed to work like an iPad smart cover. The only missing thing is the automatic unlock feature. In order to replicate this, add the Always On Proximity tweak from Cydia, which turns on your phone when something isn’t in the proximity of the screen.

You can use any iPhone cover that works in the same way, but it’s definitely a cool hack if you love the way that your iPad unlocks when you uncover it.
