While the Lock screen and Notification Center have each become much more functional and informative in some of the latest versions iOS, it’s still possible to improve on them, and jailbreak developers are taking note of this.

A new free jailbreak tweak called DisplayWeather 10 by pxcex puts your weather information to the left of the date information in each of these interfaces, letting you dedicate the space that would normally be taken up by the weather widget to other widgets instead.

DisplayWeather 10 utilizes the information that your iPhone’s stock Weather app receives based on your current location, so to use this tweak, you will need to have Location Services enabled for Weather. This tweak will not work for locations that you’ve set manually.

When you do have Location Services enabled for Weather, the tweak uses the space that’s normally empty on the left side of the header in the widget interface on both the Lock screen and Notification Center to show you weather information for your location.

As you can see above, the tweak works in Notification Center, but below, you can also see it working from the Lock screen in the interface that you can access by swiping right:

The tweak includes the name of your location, the weather conditions outside, and even a large weather illustration for visual purposes.

The first thing that might come to mind for some of you is, “but iOS already has a weather widget, so why install this?”

For me, the answer is that I have limited screen space and I want to see as much information as possible. If I can install this tweak and hide the Weather widget, then that leaves more screen space for other widgets that I can see at a glance without scrolling.

While others may disagree, it’s all in good fun. The point of jailbreaking is to do what you want, how you want, on your own device without Apple’s say-so.

If you’re interested in downloading and trying DisplayWeather 10 on your jailbroken device, you can do so right now from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak only works on iOS 10 devices.

    Not working for me…

    • iOS Kush

      same here.

    • Make sure you have the stock weather app installed and that it is allowed to use your location to get weather information.

  • Reilitas

    I think that they need to remove the place information. It doesn’t look like it really fits. Remove “Tampa” and “Sunny.” I think we can distinguish what the sun icon means, also.. why not incorporate in your current location? Just collect information from the Weather app.

  • tunutsaigon

    Can we tap on it to open Weather app?

  • :D

    Might as well just use a widget

  • The gross misalignment seen on the top screenshot is reason enough for me to pass on this tweak. Good idea, but not a great implementation.

    • Natalie

      Agreed, I’d like it more if the weather icons were to the right and the text to the left personally.

        Then use Ifile and move them to the location that you want. The device is jailbroken so it allows customisation and you can even customise tweaks that other people have created that you put on your device.

      • Anonymouse

        Thanks for that suggestion/reminder. Can your city be displayef without location enabled! using the ifile method?

      • burge

        Ive not jailbroken my devices for sometime now but when I did I used to combine tweaks. I’ll strip them apart to get the bits I wanted and build my own tweaks out of those pieces. You’ll need to find or build your own tweak and add it to this to get what you want. Just be prepared in case things go wrong.

      • David Berry

        Or get an android

      • burge

        Why would I want to do that.

    • Anonymouse

      You think that’s bad, I had SingleLineDate and by chance my display zoom was set to Zoomed, That causes the search bar to blow out slightly and covers half of the weather icon. Now that’s offensive.
      One other thing why can’t these weather apps etc display your city without the need to enable the spy sucking battery hoggibng location services? Surely preselecting a city without the need to enable location is achievable. I asked this developer and so far nil reply. The majority of these types of tweaks seem to prefer this method only.

      Not to mention the text is completely unnecessary…. I mean, the icon tells you the current condition, and you got the temperature. That’s all you need, it’s not like you don’t know where you are (and it doesn’t matter where you are anyway, only what the weather is like)

  • Blip dude

    I’ll continue to patiently wait for Forecast to be updated. It’s currently being worked on.

    • Agneev Mukherjee

      It’s a paid app, right?

      • Blip dude

        Yes, it’s a paid tweak.

  • Rafly Firdaus B

    That was developed by Indonesian.

  • Andrieux Querido

    I cant wait for JB on my 7Plus, at least iOS 10 is not bad at all
    Nice Tweak

  • The Zlatan

    Misleading title..

  • White nigga from the 6

    Y’all enjoying this tweak and many others… while I’m here waiting on a stable job for my 7+ 10.1.1
