Hide The Status Bar In Safari, No Jailbreak Required

Apple added full-screen Safari browsing in iOS 6, but one new method promises to further improve Web browsing on an iPhone or iPod touch. All you have to do is visit a website, touch an icon there, and the status bar will disappear from your mobile device. Best of all, no jailbreak is required in order to take advantage of this method. Here's the website. Just visit the page on your iPhone or iPod touch in Safari, touch the icon there, and (after a black screen appears), you'll notice that the status bar has been removed from the Safari app. Full-screen browsing is now all the more full-screen, and looks, in my opinion, much better than before. Below, we've included a demo video of the hack, provided by iDownloadBlog. Take a look at the status bar-hiding method now, and let us know if you're impressed in the comments. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqvPtLgcWGU&feature=player_embedded
