Cydia Tweak: TouchBar Brings iOS System Options To The Status Bar

February 26, 2014

TouchBar is a new jailbreak tweak that brings a bunch of iOS system options – including toggles for Airplane Mode, location services, and Bluetooth – to the iOS status bar. You can pick up the package for $0.99 in the Cydia Store, and it’s optimized for iOS 7.

Once you have TouchBar installed on your iPhone, you’ll be able to invoke a selection of system options which appear at the iOS status bar. This can be done either by tapping the status bar, or by assigning an Activator action to TouchBar using the free jailbreak app.

Functions including (but not limited to) Airplane Mode, Do No Disturb, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and location services can all be enabled or disabled using TouchBar, and the selection of toggles presented by the jailbreak tweak can be customized by users.

In terms of appearance, the jailbreak tweak looks nice and fits in with the design ethos of iOS 7:

However, I’m not sure this is a package I’d be inclined to install on my iPhone. Control Center provides an ultra-convenient means of accessing system toggles under iOS 7, and though limited by default to a handful of options, a growing number of jailbreak tweaks are expanding on the feature’s functionality in new and exciting ways.

These have included CCLoader, CC Desparator, and CCNowPlaying; CCClockOpenToAlarm and Hidden SBSettings for iOS 7 may also be of interest.

As mentioned, TouchBar is available to download now in the Cydia Store. How do you like the look of the new package?
