Arizona lets jailbreakers reposition the Lock Screen’s date and time

While Apple has experimented with bolder and lighter fonts for the Lock Screen’s date and time display over the years, one thing that certainly hasn’t changed would be the position of this element.

For as long as I can remember, the Lock Screen’s date and time display has been centered somewhere within the top 1/3 of the display. Apple doesn’t provide any options in iOS for customizing the Lock Screen’s date and time display positioning, and with that in mind, it may come as no surprise that the jailbreak community has developed its own means of doing so.

Alternate your iPhone’s Status Bar time indicator between the date and time with TimeStamp

The iPhone’s Status Bar has always been home to a time indicator  so that you can always glance there from any interface you might be using to see what time it is. But how many times have you found yourself wondering what the date is — just to find yourself going back to the Home Screen or Lock Screen to check?

I’ve long wondered why the iPhone’s Status Bar didn’t display the date in addition to the time, and interestingly enough, iPadOS now does this natively. This begs the question of why a similar feature isn’t yet available for the iPhone or iPod Touch, especially with the extra vertical real estate afforded by the device’s notch.

How to propose a new time for a Calendar event invitation

Propose New Time for Calendar Event on iPhone

When you receive an event invitation, you may have a conflict with the date or time. In the Calendar app, you can propose a new time to the event organizer. This saves you from phone calls or the back and forth via email to reschedule the event. You can propose a new time before or after you accept the event invitation.

Here, we’ll show you how to use the built-in feature for proposing a new time for a Calendar event. And we’ll walk you through it on Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

How to insert and format the current date and time in Numbers

Insert today's date and time in the Numbers app

How many times have you typed the current date or time into a Numbers sheet? You might be using a spreadsheet for tracking weight, a work schedule, or activities, and enter the date each time you open it. Or, you might use Numbers for employees or team members and ask them to record the time they make their entries.

What’s nice about Numbers is that you can insert the current date and/or time without typing it in or using a formula to make it happen. You can also format both, here’s how.

Miss iOS 13’s wheel-based date picker? This jailbreak tweak ports it to iOS 14

If you ever set up alarms in your iPhone’s native Clock app or upcoming events in the Calendar app, then you’re probably used to having to enter a specific time and date for those types of configurations.

As many noticed, iOS & iPadOS 14 have replaced the traditional wheel-style date selector with an inline version that displays a combo box for the time and a full-blown calendar picker for the date. While some really like this new inline selector, others aren’t used to it and have found it to be more cumbersome.

Klean gives jailbreakers a more interesting date and time display

When you find yourself a bit curious as to what time it is, you might take a quick glance at your iPhone’s Lock Screen to take advantage of the massive time display iOS shows within the top half of the screen. It works, but we wouldn’t go out of our way to say it’s particularly beautiful.

If you’re interested in something a bit more eye-catching, and perhaps even more functional by way of the kind of information that gets displayed, then we’d advise checking out a newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Klean by iOS developer Ali Maulana.

How to keep track of birthdays on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

Birthday Reminder App on iPhone with Calendar

It’s always nice when someone remembers your birthday. Facebook has a handy feature for letting you know when one of your friends has a birthday, but not everybody uses that particular social network (believe it or not). So if you want to make sure you don’t forget your grandma’s 98th birthday or your niece’s second, you may need a little help.

Here, we’ll show you two great ways to keep track of birthdays on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac. You can then be sure to grab that birthday card or make that phone call to say “Happy Birthday” to someone special when the time rolls around.

How to edit or delete photo metadata on iPhone and Mac

Edit Exif Metadata for Photo on iPhone

If you have photos on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac with wrong or missing metadata, we show you the easy ways to add that data. After following the steps below, you can add, remove, or change the photo's location, date and time when it was taken, and several other details (metadata).

TextTime gives jailbreakers a text-based Lock Screen time display

The iPhone’s Lock Screen was designed to show the current date and time at a glance, and it does a particularly good job of it right out of the box. The large numerical display that comes from the factory makes discerning the current time an effortless task. But let’s say you’re jailbroken and want something fancier…

TextTime is a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Lightmann that changes how the iPhone’s Lock Screen displays the current time. It does this by switching from a digital numeric readout to a word-based readout that quite literally spells the time out for you.

How to use the redesigned date and time picker in iOS and iPadOS 14

Enhanced Date Time Picker Calendar iPad

Sometimes it’s those small improvements that make a big difference. With iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple updated the date (calendar) picker that you use in apps like Reminders and Calendar. No longer do you have to spin the wheel to choose your date and time.

This enhancement lets you select the exact date and time much quicker with a clearer view and simpler method of selection. Here, we’ll show you what’s new with and how to use the redesigned date picker on iPhone and iPad.

Indy brings interactive features to the Status Bar of jailbroken iPhones

Your iPhone’s Status Bar is great for giving you at-a-glance information about your handset, be it your current battery level, wireless connection strength, or the time. On the other hand, the Status Bar is also perhaps one of iOS’ most underutilized interface elements.

This is something that iOS developer Burrit0z wanted to change about the iPhone’s user experience, and so he created a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Indy to do just that. As you can discern for yourself in the screenshot examples above, the tweak gives users a lot more insight about information depicted by Status Bar indicators with no more than a tap.
