The way iOS displays your current battery level has been approximately the same since the first iteration of the mobile operating system; albeit with a few minor changes present in some of the most significant updates over the years.
For anyone interested in a fresh take on iOS’ battery level indicator, a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed BatteryBar by iOS developer DGh0st may grab some attention, BatteryBar replaces iOS’ stock battery level indicator with a new bar that spans the full width of the device’s display.
After you install BatteryBar, you will find a new preference pane in the Settings app where you can configure a bevy of options:
Here, you can:
- Toggle the tweak on or off on demand
- Choose the default Status Bar text color (black, white, or default)
- Hide or show the Status Bar’s stock battery level indicator icon
- Hide or show the Status Bar’s stock charging icon
- Configure the thickness of BatteryBar
- Choose whether BatteryBar displays at the top or bottom of the Status Bar
- Configure BatteryBar’s alignment (left, center, or right)
- Configure BatteryBar’s color scheme (default, solid, or gradient)
- Adjust BatteryBar’s opacity
- Enable or disable a pulsing effect like you’d see on some other manufacturers’ phones
The developer includes a Respring button at the top right of the preference pane, but it stays disabled until you change some of the settings. When you do, it becomes tappable and you’ll want to use it to save your changes.
If you’d like to give BatteryBar a shot for yourself, then you can download it for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository. The tweak works on all jailbroken iOS 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 devices (excluding the iPhone X).
