Some of the best jailbreak tweaks for hiding user interface stuff on iOS 14

While iOS is a beautifully refined mobile operating system, that doesn’t keep jailbreakers from putting their own spin on the user interface by hiding unwanted elements.

Best Hiding Jailbreak Tweaks

A plethora of jailbreak tweaks are proficient at hiding unwanted items from the iOS user interface, and in today’s roundup, we’ll show you what we believe are some of the best ones for pwned iOS 14 devices.

The best iOS 14 jailbreak tweaks for hiding stuff

Begone – FREE

Begone hides notification badges.

One of my favorite jailbreak tweaks for hiding unwanted user interface elements is Begone, a tweak that lets the end user selectively hide notification badges from individual app icons on the iPhone’s Home Screen.

This tweak is especially useful for the Settings app when your iPhone decides to alert you that there’s a software update you don’t want to install, and there’s no native mechanism for hiding this badge. Apart from this, Begone can also be used with other app icons for other purposes, depending on your needs.

HideSurplus – FREE

Hide things from the iPhone's Home Screen with HideSurplus.

With the HideSurplus jailbreak tweak, users can hide unwanted elements from the Home Screen of their device.

It’s particularly useful for doing away with things such as the app icon labels, the dock background, the ‘No Older Notifications’ text from Notification Center, and more.

clear not playing – FREE

Hide Control Center's Not Playing text.

There’s a small amount of text that appears in Control Center’s Now Playing widget whenever you don’t have anything playing that reads “Not Playing.” Some users don’t mind this, but others find it ugly in a glyph-based user interface.

The clear not playing jailbreak tweak simply hides this unwanted text from the Control Center user interface, allowing the Now Playing widget to look like any of the other ones.

ForceBar – FREE

You can use ForceBar to hide or show the Status Bar in specific apps.

There may be certain apps that don’t play nicely with the Status Bar. This generally happens in full-screen games rather than traditional apps, but ironically, not all these incompatible apps take steps to hide the Status Bar from the interface.

You can use a free jailbreak tweak called ForceBar to forcefully hide (or show) the Status Bar from individual apps on your device. The tweak comes with a comprehensive preference pane where you can configure the Status Bar one way or the other.

Peep Reborn – FREE

Hide the Status Bar on demand with Peep Reborn.

If hiding the Status Bar in individual apps isn’t your forte, then you might find Peep Reborn to be a bit more useful.

This jailbreak tweak can hide or show the Status Bar on demand with just a tap, even if you’re viewing from the Home Screen or somewhere else that isn’t an app’s user interface.

Hide VoIP Suggestions – FREE

Hide VoIP call suggestions from the contact list.

Apple has in recent updates to iOS made it so that VoIP calling suggestions would appear in the iOS contacts list in addition to regular phone number-based calling suggestions, but not all iPhone users like or want VoIP services deeply woven into their phone calling experience.

Hide VoIP Suggestions is a free jailbreak tweak that hides VoIP calling suggestions from the contact list, which means that you will only see phone number-based calling suggestions rather than suggestions from third-party calling apps.

Houdini – FREE

Hide unwanted elements from the iPhone's Lock Screen.

Some users find that the Lock Screen has too much going on, and if that’s your general opinion as well, then you might appreciate a jailbreak tweak called Houdini, which can hide almost anything you want from the Lock Screen’s user interface.

Whether you’re trying to hide the Quick Action buttons for the flashlight and/or camera, or you’re simply trying to remove the Face ID lock glyph or the date and time display, this tweak has you covered.
