Notification Center always has white text by default, but with a new free jailbreak tweak called NCTextColor, you can mix things up a little bit with some of your own favorite colors and settings.
This tweak works great for anyone who themes their iPhone and wants Notification Center‘s colors to better compliment the theme they’re using, but you don’t have to be a theme user to love what you can do with this tweak.
After you install it, you can head right over the Settings app and open the NCTextColor preferences pane. Here, you’re going to find the options for colorizing the various elements in Notification Center:
Right off the bat, you’ll find a toggle switch you can use to turn the entire tweak on or off on demand, but right below are the panes you’ll use to change the colors of:
- Headers under the Notifications tab
- Text under the Notifications tab
- Headers under the Today tab
- Text under the Today tab
After you’re satisfied with your color selection, which can be as bland or as diverse as you want it to be, you can tap on the red Respring button at the top right of the navigation bar to save your changes. Notably, the colors are chosen from a color picker rather than a list of presets, so your color choices are quite literally endless.
NCTextColor is available as a free download from Cydia’s BigBoss repository and works on jailbroken iOS 9 devices.
