Take a Last Look: The Ultimate AOD Tweak for a Stock-Like Experience with Unlimited Potential.

What are users saying about LastLook?

  • “After having used LastLook @AnthoPak for about a week or so, it is added to my approved list of good AOD tweaks. […] Final verdict: LastLook is very much worth it. It supports both iPhone and iPad and I recommend you give it a try! […] Oh yeah and forgot to say: It barely drains any battery, just the usual usage + a little bit more. I use it on my LCD device (iPhone XR and haven’t noticed any excessive drainage)” - @FectaTr1 (Full review here)
  • “I want to preface by saying holy smokes LastLook is the always on display tweak of my dreams. I can tell you poured a lot of effort into this tweak, and it is working great. […] I absolutely love the wave to dismiss feature. Makes me feel like a Jedi. Truly, keep up the amazing work! […] I love the effort you’ve invested in supporting a variety of lock screen tweaks, and love how beautifully stock and fluid LastLook feels.” - Lance F.
  • “It’s the best always on/ambient display tweak out there. If you liked Ph**on but thought it needed some polishing, then this is for you!! I use it on the daily, very handy stuff.” - @chrismonster16
  • “Thank you for not adding unnecessary bloat to make it seem like it has more features.(it has tons) Tweak is amazing & beautiful. Had an iphX forever and this is the first AOD I was willing to try. Also, the explanations for each setting are worth $1 a piece, by themselves. 💯” - @iPhizzle

Useful, Gorgeous look

Every time you lock your phone, LastLook goes into action by displaying content from your Notification Center for a few seconds, all while gracefully fading out your wallpaper to ensure a clean and uncluttered appearance. With the Always On Display (AOD) mode, keep this information visible indefinitely, making it perfect for quick glances without needing to unlock your device. LastLook looks especially stunning on OLED screens, where the contrast between the display and the black background truly shines.

Almost stock

LastLook is made so that it doesn’t change the stock locking process. So when LastLook is visible, your phone will still be in locked state, thus you’ll be able to use Raise to Wake or Tap to Wake to resume the screen.
Also, it triggers every time your phone gets locked, either it’s when using Lock button, Activator action, or if the phone locks itself due to inactivity.

Main features

Short & AOD Modes

LastLook intelligently chooses between the two modes according to your configuration. If AOD should be disabled because of some of your conditions, it fallbacks to Short mode.

  • Short Mode: shows LastLook for some seconds after each lock
  • AOD Mode: shows LastLook until you hide it manually or if one of your configured conditions is met
  • Disabling mode conditions for both modes (under battery percent, LPM enabled, DND enabled…). If AOD is disabled because of some condition, it switches to Short mode (unless Short mode should also be disabled because of some conditions)

Ambient mode

LastLook transitions to this mode after a few seconds, automatically centering your essential content.

  • Choose to only keep date visible while in Ambient mode, or to keep everything visible
  • Configurable delay before switching to Ambient mode
  • Exit Ambient mode when receiving notifications or on music changes
  • Custom positioning, scale factor and animation duration


Several configurable touch gestures to interact with LastLook, and control your music. Also includes hand wave above screen to sleep it!

  • Swipe and Tap gestures to perform a list of actions (sleep/wake screen or control music)
  • Swipe Up from extreme bottom Gesture to Wake and auto request Face ID unlock for a superquick phone unlocking
  • Turn screen off special gestures (phone face down, phone in pocket, wave your hand above proximity sensor)
  • Ability to forward touches after wake to allow touches on media buttons (only available up to iOS 15)
  • Haptic Feedback

Notifications indicators

Configurable notifications indicators to get a quick look at your notifications and to make sure you don’t miss any!

  • App icons indicators
  • Colored pulsing Dots indicators with configurable settings
  • Filter indicators to unread notifications only
  • Custom positioning, size and spacing

Other features

  • Battery indicator with percentage and state (charging, LPM, normal)
  • Always show while charging (even if in LPM, DND, or under battery percent)
  • UI Adjustments: always see your content on a true black screen (hide notifications/media backgrounds, force white text, force white media buttons)
  • Configurable screen burn in protection
  • Inactivity detection to stop AOD after some time
  • Custom Message shown a few seconds after each lock (iOS 16 and above)

You can chose the elements you want to keep on screen when you lock the phone:

  • Hour and date (compatible with Kalm, JellyFish, …)
  • Unread notifications
  • Old notifications
  • Media player
  • Status Bar
  • Widgets View (iOS 16 and above)
  • Other tweaks (Axon, Xen HTML, LockPlus Pro, Designer, Dodo, Complications, Veza, Lune, Notchless…)

iOS Shortcuts Integration

LastLook brings actions to the Shortcuts app to control its settings. Although LastLook already brings a lot of settings to choose when it should be enabled or not, some of you may have specific use cases. For example, you can use Automations to change the max AOD duration depending on device battery, have specific settings depending on your current Focus mode, set a custom On Lock Message every day, etc… You can even control LastLook using Siri! You need to install Powercuts library (free) to get the actions.


It’s compatible with all devices from iOS 12 to 16. iPad support is included, as well as iPhone 14 Pro.
It’s fully compatible with tweaks that modify the time view and even looks more gorgeous with them. It’s also compatible with tweaks modifying the media player or notifications (like Sylph, Axon, Grupi, Tako …). Refer to the list below for known tweaks compatibiliy.

Tweaks compatibility

LastLook works great with the following tweaks (list is not exhaustive):
LockPlus Pro, XenHTML, Designer, Shortlook, Kalm, Fabric, JellyFish, Lyrication, Complications, Veza, Axon, Grupi, Tako, Lune, Notchless, Aperio, LockWatch, Libellum, Lucient, Diary, Dodo, Eneko, Stella, Reo, Velvet, betterAlarm…
