We showed you a really nice notification aesthetic rework for jailbroken iOS 13 devices last year called Dayn, and this weekend, we’re excited to share that a new version of Dayn is now available specifically for the likes of jailbroken iOS 14 devices.
The iPhone is an amazing music player, especially when you have streaming services like Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, and others right in the palm of your hand on demand.
The infamous notch became a critical element of Apple’s design language when introducing it with the iPhone X. Fast-forward to now, and the notch has infiltrated more devices including the iPad lineup and, more recently, the MacBook Pro lineup.
When browsing certain websites in Safari on your iOS device, you’ll sometimes be presented with a banner at the top of the page that urges you to download that website’s dedicated App Store app.
If you’re jailbroken and in the market for an exciting new way to customize your handset’s notification banner experience, then we have just the right jailbreak tweak for you!
Cucu is a new and free release by iOS developer Xyaman that offers a handful of intriguing new features for incoming notification banners, and like most high-quality jailbreak tweaks, it’s fully configurable by the end user.
Apple Music is by far one of the most popular ways to stream music on the iOS & iPadOS platforms. This statement remains true even regarding users of jailbroken handsets.
Jailbreakers who want to upgrade their user experience in the Apple Music app are in luck this Tuesday morning thanks to a new and free jailbreak tweak dubbed MusicBanners by iOS developer level3tjg, as it effectively replaces the Apple Music app’s ugly center-screen HUD pop-ups with something nicer.
Anyone who takes advantage of the Shortcuts app to perform automations would be familiar with the notification banner that manliest itself after the automation completes.
Apple intended for this notification to let the user know when the automation finishes running, but if you’re already familiar with what your automation is supposed to do, then sometimes it can come off as redundant information.
It’s been our mission these past several weeks to provide visibility for some of the best jailbreak tweaks for various elements of iOS 14. But our work is never done, and the show must go on!
Having already covered some of the best add-ons and extensions for iOS 14’s Control Center, Home Screen, Keyboard, Messages app, and Now Playing interface, we figured that this week would be a better time than ever to focus more on iOS 14’s notification experience.
Banner notifications are just one of the native components of iOS 14 that could do with some intuitive design changes by Apple. More specifically, I’ve long felt that they’re just a little bit too large, often covering up navigation bars in apps when they appear for the short time that they do.
Countless jailbreak tweak releases in the past have attempted to remedy this situation by putting notification banners on a diet – an effort to reduce their intrusive footprint over whatever interface you might be using. The latest of such releases is miniBanner 14 by iOS developer MissThee.
As you run your iPhone’s battery far into the danger zone, iOS displays a low power banner to let you know that you should visit a charger as soon as you can.
The low power banner that comes with a stock installation of iOS is particularly barebones, and could do with some spicing up. TitanD3v seems to agree with this sentiment, and a such, a newly released jailbreak tweak dubbed Surge has been conceived.
The concept of smaller notification banners has been around for the iOS & iPadOS platforms for quite some time now in the form of jailbreak tweaks, but it’s something that Apple hasn’t yet taken up – not even in the latest iOS & iPadOS 14 releases.
Jailbreakers appear to enjoy this feature because it makes notification banners more compact and prevents them from getting in the way of the buttons on the navigation bar. Personally, I love this feature too, and that’s one reason why I’m so excited about a new and free jailbreak tweak release called Liddell by iOS developer Litten.
It’s no secret that iOS’ notification banners are quite a bit chunkier than they need to be, and this means that they can inadvertently block navigation bar buttons or in-app content when they materialize.
