DayNightSwitch adds a day/night theme to toggle switches in iOS

DayNightSwitch Before After

DayNightSwitch is a new free jailbreak tweak that adds a little bit of character to the toggle switches throughout iOS you use on a regular basis by theming their on and off positions to reflect day or night.

With the tweak installed, you’re going to notice switches that get toggled to the “on” position display a blue sky with a little Sun and cloud icon, and switches that get toggled to the “off” position display a black sky with a little Moon icon and stars in the background.

It’s a very subtle change, but it’s an aesthetically-pleasing one at that.

The animated GIF below shows a close-up of the transitioning icon as you flip an iOS toggle switch between on or off:

The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings app where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand for just the Do Not Disturb toggle switch, or system-wide for all toggle switches throughout the operating system:

From what we can tell, the initial idea behind the tweak was only to affect the Do Not Disturb toggle switch because the little day and night theme is intended to simulate the times of the day that you’re awake or asleep.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper jailbreak tweak if the developer didn’t give you the choice to enable it system-wide if you wanted to, so he threw that option in there too for you viewing pleasure.

After changing the settings, simply tap on the blue Respring button to save what you’ve changed.

If you’re interested in spicing up your iOS device’s toggle switches, then check this tweak out. It can be downloaded completely free of cost from Cydia’s BigBoss repository right now, and I think you’re going to like it.

DayNightSwitch works on jailbroken iOS 9 devices; earlier versions of iOS have not been tested.

    Got to love the jailbreak community. This was requested on /r/jailbreak and soon enough it got made, same with Reswitch and many other jailbreak apps and tweaks.

    It’s the same people who install useless shit like this on their device that complain how their device is always running “sluggish”. Hmm I wonder why? Couldn’t be from all the dumbass tweaks you install that have all those mobilesubstrate extensions running in the background using up resources. SMH
