CryptoWatch adds a real-time cryptocurrency value display to any jailbroken iPhone’s Status Bar

Whether cryptocurrency piques merely your interest or you’re actively spending or trading cryptocurrency, having quick and reliable access to real time value data can be extraordinarily helpful.

While a handful of apps exist for tracking cryptocurrency rates, iOS developer NewPolygons has released a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed CryptoWatch that conveniently displays the value of your preferred cryptocurrency right in your pwned iPhone’s Status Bar for your viewing pleasure.

As you’ll see for yourself in the screenshot example above, CryptoWatch adds the cryptocurrency value directly underneath the Status Bar’s time display. Our example uses an iPhone X, a notched handset, however we’ve been unable to confirm if the tweak supports older Home Button-equipped devices without a notch.

As for changing what your favorite cryptocurrency value display would be, CryptoWatch adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where users can make their preferred selection:

Your options here include:

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • BNB
  • Monero
  • Polkadot

Once finished making a selection, users will want to tap on the Respring button at the bottom of the preference pane to save their changes and ensure that the Status Bar reflects their current changes.

While not for everyone, CryptoWatch is a great way to keep cryptocurrency values in your line of sight since the Status Bar is visible from almost anywhere in iOS. It’s a great add-on to have if you take any interest in cryptocurrency, and even more so if you’re in any way invested in it.

Those interested in giving CryptoWatch a try can download it for free from NewPolygons’ personal repository via their favorite package manager app. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 13 and 14 devices.

If you’re not already using NewPolygons’ repository, then you can add it to your package manager app of choice via the following URL:
