How To Get Rid Of The Stock Volume HUD In iOS 9

If you have jailbroken iOS 9 device you have a great ability to get rid of the stock volume HUD in iOS 9 with the new jailbreak tweak called SmartVolumeControl. This tweak really does two main things: it reduces the size of the volume HUD to make it less intrusive and allows you to customize the appearance and behavior of the volume HUD.

Starting with the two designs it comes with, you can opt for either the clean volume bar, which is shown at the top post on the left, or you can opt for the tiny volume indicator that appears in place of the carrier name, shown above on the right. Both are really acceptable in terms of making the interface less intrusive, but each has its own benefits.

How To Get Rid Of The Stock Volume HUD On iOS 9 iPhone

To hide the stock volume HUD in iOS 9 you need first download SmartVolumeControl tweak, which is available for $1.49 from Cydia. The tweak works on both iOS 8 and iOS 9 devices.
Once installed, head to the tweak's preferences pane under Settings > SmartVolumeControl to start to configure the style and behavior of your new volume HUD:

Here you can also toggle the tweak on or off on demand, choose the volume HUD view you want to use (bar or tiny label), pick the bar color and others.

Notably, the color picker is a full-blown picker rather than a list of pre-sets, so you can get anywhere in between the typical colors you’d see in a color list and this provides a high level of flexibility for customization purposes. 

So if you don't like how the stock volume HUD sits right smack in the middle of everything and distract you from what you were doing then SmartVolumeControl tweak would be a real helper for you. It not only allows you get rid of the stock volume HUD in iOS 9 but allows to customize it appearance and look.
