Although iOS 10, and soon iOS 11, have added gradually a huge number of options that make the Jailbreak increasingly less useful, there are still those tweaks that offer features as curious as useful on iPhones and iPads. Such is the case of Hera, an app available in Cydia with which we can customize the icons of the status bar and grant direct access to other system functions.
For all those who still appreciate the Jailbreak in iOS, we bring you a functionality that can be most useful. Although iOS 10 already has a control center with shortcuts, the Hera tweak gives us a functionality that can be very comfortable. Below, we offer more in-depth details of the features of this app.
Tweak for iOS
As we already indicated, it is about Hera and the function of it is simple, at the same time useful. It gives us the ability to place the icons that appear in the iOS status bar at our whim. The best thing is that it allows you to do it in real time, just by pressing the icon and moving it to the desired space. In this way, it is possible to move the location of the icons corresponding to the battery charge, the network coverage signal, WiFi, Bluetooth and the time, among others.
Shortcuts to additional functions
However, perhaps the most outstanding ability of Hera, the aforementioned tweak for iOS, is the ability to assign a direct access to functions related to these icons. In this way, for example, it is possible to activate the airplane mode by simply pressing the coverage icon of the status bar. The same happens with the WiFi network icon, to automatically start searching for available networks. As for Bluetooth, the same.
Hera also allows you to activate the low power mode by clicking on the battery icon, as well as deactivating the location or network data by clicking on the respective icons. Likewise, it is possible to access the clock app if we exercise a slight click on the icon that shows the time in the status bar.
Download and installation
Hera is available through Cydia, through the BigBoss repositories at a price of one dollar and is compatible with up to iOS 10. However, it is also necessary to clarify that it is necessary to install independently the software packages libstatusbar and libobjcipc.
