Little X tweak for iOS 11: Get iPhone X gestures on older iPhones

When individuals jailbreak their iOS devices, they trade their device’s security by leaving Apple’s carefully managed app ecosystem, to gain that little bit of extra customization. Little X for iOS 11 meets this need uniquely, by bringing the revolutionary user interface and the gestures that are exclusive to the iPhone X line, to non-iPhone X devices.

It is, therefore, the perfect customization tool, and the answer to how to get iPhone X gestures on older iPhones, if you are not willing to pay the $1000 premium for an iPhone X.

The Little X tweak is one of the most comprehensive iPhone X gestures tweak available right now. The developer, Andrew Wiik, brings not just the gestures and the user interface of Apple’s groundbreaking recent flagships, but also all the Side Button shortcuts and functionality is mapped onto the Sleep/Wake key.

Also, unlike the majority of similar jailbreak tweaks, where developers host them on their own repo and force you to first add their repo manually into Cydia, the Little X repo can be found in Cydia, making its installation that much easier.

How to download and Install Little X tweak on iOS 11

When your iPhone finishes respringing, you will notice the immediate difference on your lock screen, with the camera and flashlight icons now being circular. Navigate to your Settings app and tap on Little X to see the multitude of changes and features that you can activate on your iOS 11 devices to get it just how you want it.

A unique feature which we would like to draw your attention to is the “Swipe Up to Kill” feature which was implemented in iOS 12. This is a much cleaner way to close apps than the clunky “Hold to Kill” method in the iPhone X originally, and the fact that it is already in Little X shows just how dedicated the developers are at updating this tweak.
