Apple began integrating sleep-related health feature into the iPhone in iOS 13 with Bedtime, but it wasn’t until iOS 14 that more meaningful sleep-based features such as Sleep Mode came to fruition.
When Sleep Mode is active, your iPhone mutes incoming notifications with Do Not Disturb to keep you asleep and dissuades you from using your iPhone when you should be sleeping by way of a more convoluted Lock Screen that adds an additional button to tap before you can swipe up to unlock.
While Apple’s intentions were certainly good, lots of iPhone users really can’t stand the latter feature because it makes accessing the device more of a pain. For that reason, DontWannaSleepNow is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer AnthoPak that subverts said convoluted Lock Screen when Sleep Mode is active by continuing to allow swipe to unlock.
What you get with DontWannaSleepNow is the same Sleep Mode user experience that you currently know and love, but without the Lock Screen-based interruption that typically hinders your smartphone usage late at night.
Once installed, users need not follow the two-step process of tapping a button and then swiping up to unlock just to unlock their iPhone. It skips the first step, allowing you to get to apps and information in a pinch even when you should be sleeping.
While the tweak essentially renders one of the core functionalities of Sleep Mode useless given that Apple’s goal with Sleep Mode was to dissuade users from using their iPhone when they’re supposed to be sleeping for the sake of more accurate sleep tracking, some people merely prefer convenience over pure will power.
Those interested in trying the new DontWannaSleepNow tweak can download it for free from AnthoPak’s personal repository via their favorite package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 14 devices and doesn’t come with any options to configure.
If you aren’t already using AnthoPak’s repository, then you can add it to your package manager of choice with the following URL:
