How To Replace The Carrier Name In Status Bar With The Date In iOS 9

Do you want to replace the carrier name in Status Bar with the date in iOS 9? You can do it with new Cydia tweak dubbed as CarDate. This great jailbreak tweak allows you to flexibly utilize space for carrier name in the Status Bar with the current date instead. What is more, it is even possible to customize and configure any date format you want. You can include or exclude the year or day of the week, use dashes, periods, or slashes; basically whatever you want.

Here is the short review on how to setup the tweak and use it.

How To Hide Carrier Name On iOS 9 iPhone

In order to replace the carrier name in Status Bar with the date in iOS 9 head to Cydia and download CarDate tweak for free. The tweak works with all jailbroken iOS 9 iPhones and cellular-enabled iPads as well.

Once installed, to start configuring the date formatting you want to use head over to Settings CarDate Advanced Options:

Here, you’ll find a text field where you can enter the date formatting you want.

To format the date, you will need to know the following symbols:

y = year
d = day
M = month
E = day of week

Remember don't put a lowercase “m,” because this will display the minutes of the time instead of the month. If you want to show the day of the week too, then you can use the E symbol. For example:

EEEE, MMM d, yyyy = Wednesday, Oct 19, 2016

Or, you can display the month and the year with the following format:

MMMM yyyy = October 2016

If you need more info on date-based formatting, the developer has an instructional web page you can look at as a cheat sheet.

It should be mentioned that CarDate only works on devices with active cellular signals and SIM cards, so if you try to use the tweak on a device with the “No Service” or “No SIM” indicator, the date won't be displayed in Status bar.
