It is easy to take the Knowledge Center of your iPhone for granted. As useful as it is for viewing important warnings, reminders, and more, the feature is pretty boring compared to the customizable Control Center, accessibility shortcuts, and others.
Admittedly, viewing and using notifications was not the intention. exciting, but if you have a jailbreak iPhone, there are a whole host of features that you can add to the Alert Center to significantly improve your experience. These can range from very simple mods that cancel alerts to full UI adjustment for a unique look. So here are ten tweaks that are definitely worth watching.
Before you begin
Note that many of these tweaks are not standard available in Cydia or Sileo, which means that you must manually add a repo to grab them. The process is fairly simple, but feel free to go to one of the links below if you are not familiar with it.
On your notched iPhone, the battery percentage can be viewed by opening the Control Center or by adding the Batteries widget on the Today View page. With CydiaGeek & # 39; s MoreNotificationLabelBattery, you can add the battery percentage to Notification Center.
The tweak actually replaces the "More" label in grouped notifications with the battery percentage of your iPhone, eliminating the extra step to go in the Control Center or Today view to see the exact battery life of your device to watch. MoreNotificationLabelBattery is free to install and can be obtained by adding cydiageek.yourepo.com to Cydia or Sileo.
2. Cleaner Grouped Notification Cards
You can also choose to completely remove the & # 39; More & # 39; notification label from grouped notification cards instead of replacing it with a battery percentage indicator as mentioned above. Aptly named NoMoreNotificationLabel, the handy mod from CydiaGeek removes the label in warning cards with more than one notification for a more streamlined appearance.
Like MoreNotificationLabelBattery, NoMoreNotificationLabel can be installed free of charge once you add cydiageek.yourepo.com in Cydia or Sileo. Once installed, the tweak is automatically switched on, with no further settings to mess with.
3. Group notifications
If you want to organize your notifications and group them by app with minimal clutter, you should give Axon a try . Nepeta & # 39; s handy mod is essentially a remake of the popular Priority Hub tweak, which transferred the grouped alerts functionality of the classic BlackBerry 10 to iOS.
In short, Axon neatly groups all alerts per app on both the lock screen and the notification center. From there you can view app-specific notifications by simply tapping the corresponding icons.
Axon automatically turns on your iPhone resprings once, but you also have access to the menu in the Settings app to display elements such as icon layout , haptic feedback, sort order and more. That said, it's worth noting that the official Nepo repo is offline. To get this tweak, you must add chr0nict.github.io/Nepeta-Mirror/ to your "Sources" list in Cydia or Sileo.
4. Listen hands-free to your notifications
If you often forget to check notifications, there is a great adjustment that ensures that you will never miss important notifications again. Speak Notification by merdok lets you listen to incoming alarms hands-free by dictating them as they arrive.
Speak Notification is enabled by default after installation and continues reading incoming notifications. Of course you may want to prevent sensitive warnings from being broadcast for everyone. Fortunately, you can disable the feature for specific apps by placing them in the Tweak blacklist in the menu in the Settings app.
Furthermore, with the tweak you can set numerous options that better meet your needs. You can block the tweak to dictate alerts when you are in a designated app, make the tweak work even with Do Not Disturb enabled, speak only while your iPhone is charging, and more. Speak Notification is available in BigBoss + repo, so it is not necessary to install external repos to get it.
5. Remove app names and headers
Your iPhone's Notification Center and Today page make displaying notifications intuitive, although you can't really do much in terms of customization. With the Notifica tweak, however, you can make their user interface a lot more pleasing to the eye.
The tweak from Nepeta allows you to remove unnecessary clutter from both the Reporting Center and the Today page, such as headers and app names for a more streamlined appearance. You can also colorize your notifications or set their coverage so that they stand out even more.
Like Axon above, Notifica can be installed by first chr0nict.github.io/Nepeta-Mirror/ [19459020toetevoegen] in Cydia or Sileo.
Notifications that first appear on the lock screen will disappear as soon as you unlock your iPhone, so if you have not checked an alert there and locked your device, you must open them from the reporting center. If you want the notifications on the lock screen to remain as a reminder until you have time to view them in more detail, KingPuffdaddi Notif tweak has you covered.
Like Notifica above, Notif is natively available within Cydia and Sileo thanks to BigBoss +, so it is not necessary to add an external repo. Best of all, the tweak works automatically in the background during installation – no extra settings or options to play with.
7. Preventing notifications from waking your iPhone
Unless your iPhone is set to Do Not Disturb, incoming notifications are forced to wake up automatically and you are vulnerable to prying eyes. So if you want to keep your reports private, ShyNotification by CydiaGeek is a tweak that you should try.
The tweak is free to install and runs automatically in the background to prevent your iPhone from receiving an alert every time. ShyNotification is available by adding cydiageek.yourepo.com to Cydia or Sileo.
If you have trouble accessing notification banners at the top of your screen, then Rishanan & # 39; s BottomBannersX2 very near you. Once installed, the tweak works immediately and you do not need to configure anything, and warning banners are displayed at the bottom of the screen for easy access. Please note that the banner may not appear in the center depending on your device, as shown in the photo below.
BottomBannersX2 is available if you add repo.packix.com to Cydia or Sileo.
If you do not have the standard notification banner likes on your notched iPhone (X and higher), then you must give PeterDev & # 39; s BoardBanner12 a look. The $ 1.99 tweak takes full advantage of the extra real estate of your notched iPhone by completely filling in the upper part of the screen with a warning banner.
You can even set a number of elements, such as rounded corners for a more eye-catching appearance, and choose between "White", "Dark" and "Black" to better suit your style. BoardBanner12 can be purchased in Cydia or Sileo via repo.packix.com .
Last but certainly not least in this list is c1d3r & # 39; s Notchification. As the name implies, the tweak allows you to set custom animations for incoming notifications around the notch of your iPhone. However, that is just scratching the surface, because the tweak gives you a whole range of animations such as screen edge effects and centered animations to choose from.
You can also enable animations while your iPhone is sleeping, as can be seen on the GIF below. All in all, Notchification is worth the $ 2.00 price tag and can be purchased if you have repo.packix.com installed in Cydia or Sileo.
