When you miss a call on your iPhone, the Phone app tells you who the caller was and when they called. But one thing it doesn’t show you is how long the caller waited for you to pick up before ending the call.
iOS developer MiRO92 thought it would be a cool idea if the Phone app displayed this information too, and as a result, he created and released a new and free jailbreak tweak called DamnDuration.
Once installed, the tweak adds an additional readout to missed call information under the Phone app’s Recents tab that shows how long the caller waited through the ringing duration for you to answer:
Despite being arguably moot information, it’s still cool to see how long someone’s willing to wait for you to pick up when you miss their phone calls. After all, I know plenty of people who won’t even continue waiting for me to answer before hanging up after just two or three rings.
According to MiRO92, the tweak won’t display ring durations from phone calls received and missed prior to installing the tweak. Instead, it begins monitoring new incoming phone calls post-installation, and so that’s when the information will start populating in the Phone app.
If you’re interested in upgrading your native Phone app with a ringing duration display for missed incoming phone calls, then the DamnDuration tweak can be downloaded for free from MiRO92’s personal repository via your favorite package manager app. Please note that the tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 & 14 devices only.
If you aren’t already taking advantage of MiRO92’s repository, then you can add it to your package manager app of choice with the following URL:
