When you make a phone call with the stock Phone app on iOS, you’ll notice a green status bar appear at the top of the interface when you exit the app. This status bar serves as a quick shortcut to get back to the stock Phone app, and it also lets you know how long the Phone call has lasted.

If you have sensitive eyes, then you may find the neon green color used on the status bar to be annoying, or at least visually unappealing. Thankfully, there is a simple and easy way to rid the status bar of its neon properties, and it comes in the form of a jailbreak tweak called CalmCall. Have a look at our full video walkthrough after the break to see what I mean.

Once you install CalmCall, you won’t find any settings or options to configure; it’s an install-and-go affair. After installation, make a phone call and exit the stock Phone app. You should notice that the neon green status bar has been replaced with a more subdued shade of green.

CalmCall 2

In the screenshot above, you can see the difference between the stock status bar—on the left—and the status bar with CalmCall enabled—on the right. The difference is subtle, but definitely noticeable upon head-to-head comparison.

CalmCall is available free of charge on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let me know what you think about its calming effects in the comment section below.

  • MHCsk

    May seem like a minor thing, but the ‘calm’ version really looks better.

    • SkyFall

      Well minor things are what make a software (and everything) great, because many minor things make a major thing.

  • Framboogle

    Jony was probably on LSD when he made that call bar.

    • Yash Gorana

      He was on LSD the entire time during the development of iOS 7 xD

  • Jeff Ramirez

    First world problems…

  • Jonathan

    Goes well with the new iOS 7.1 icons (if you downloaded the theme that changes the three)

  • Brian Brown

    Great idea to develop. I can totally expect to see a Paid version in cydia modify it to any color in mind :p

  • RustyRail

    Cool and a great idea,can he copy right it.Apple will grab it sure as god created green apples.

  • Jason Masters

    Most of all the tweaks for ios 7 don’t work or crash so much you end up uninstalling anyways this jailbreak is just not working out like previous versions…

  • Kenrick Fernandes

    i installed this 🙂 very nice tweak. I have just about 5 good jailbreak tweaks. But when i open my camera, it either freezes or theres no pictures. Sometimes i will have to restart. I have burst mode, lockdown pro, multitasking gestures, no slow animations, slo-mo mod, tinybar, and calm call. This happened in my previous jailbreak also. My guess is the burst mode? or the slo-mo mod. Every week this guy is updating slo mo mod on cydia. Seems to be alot of revisions…

  • Is there a point to this if you’re just smart enough to use CallBar?

  • czbird

    Anything to disable text blinking when personal hotspot is on?

  • There are so many haters on that video. Just leave him alone.
