iPhone and iPod touch themers, get out those devices. Building upon the five gorgeous iPhone setups that we shared yesterday, today we look at nine must-have iPhone 5 lock screen themes by graphic designers Patrick Muff and Mark Stewart. All support the fifth-generation iPod touch, too.

All of the themes are free and iOS 6 compatible, available through Cydia by adding repository http://patrickmuff.ch/repo/ under Manage > Sources > Edit > Add. If you do use one of these themes, consider donating to Muff and Stewart through Cydia to help fund their hosting costs. 

RisingBars

RisingBars iPhone 5 Theme

This minimalistic lock screen theme by Patrick Muff has three bars that rise according to the time, with the option of a date stamp, and simplistic slide to unlock bar. Choose between a twelve or twenty-four hour clock, or set a custom wallpaper, through SSH. Instructions posted on Cydia.

Pebbly

Pebbly iPhone Lock Theme

A pixel-perfect lock screen theme by Mark Stewart, inspired by the Pebble watch. Time is displayed as a spoken word, with a present day weather icon and five day forecast underneath. To get your local weather, instructions are provided within the Cydia package for this theme.

Hexxly

Another lock screen theme by Mark Stewart, where each second is converted into a HEX tag that, in turn, corresponds with the background color. This minimalistic theme has a hexagonal slider for unlocking the device, which is rather fitting.

AnalogClock

AnalogClock iPhone Lock Screen Theme

An analog clock is at the core of this lock screen theme, designed by Patrick Muff. Tap and hold on the analog clock to view the date and digital time. Change the wallpaper using SSH if you wish, following the instructions found in the Cydia package.

Typo5

A popular lock screen theme by Patrick Muff, Typo5 boldly displays the date and time alongside a sleek and simple slide to unlock bar. Choose between a twelve or twenty-four hour clock, or set a custom wallpaper, through SSH. Instructions posted on Cydia.

Thin

Another creation by Patrick Muff, this lock screen theme lives up to its name, with a thin and dark design. Choose between a twelve or twenty-four hour clock, or set a custom wallpaper, through SSH. Instructions posted on Cydia.

ColorFlow

ColorFlow iPhone Lock Screen Theme

A colorful background and crisp time and date stamps highlight this lock screen theme, curated by Patrick Muff. Offsetting time and date intervals are displayed in blurry fashion. Choose between a twelve or twenty-four hour clock, or set a custom wallpaper, through SSH. Instructions posted on Cydia.

Binary

Binary iPhone Lock Screen Theme

Although it might bring out your inner nerdiness, this lock screen by Patrick Muff has a binary clock that is also equally stylish. A navy blue background and minimal slide to unlock bar compliments the design. Set an AM/PM clock or custom wallpaper via SSH. Instructions posted on Cydia.

Black & White

Black White iPhone Lock Screen Theme

A contrasting black-and-white lock screen theme by Patrick Muff, featuring a pack of swans. The time, date and day of the week are all displayed. The only questionable element of this theme is the status bar elements, which are difficult to see in matching white.
