How To Peek At The Status Bar In Fullscreen Apps In iOS 10

If your iOS device is jailbroken you can now easily peek at the Status Bar in fullscreen apps in iOS 10 with the Cydia release known as StatusPeek 2. Of course fullscreen apps offer a more immersive experience, but there is one disadvantage. While you are in the fullcreen mode the Status bar remains hidden, this means that you cannot check the current time, iPhone battery level, and other info that are shown in the Status bar.

There are two ways to view the Status bar when using a fullscreen app. First, you can press the Home button to return to the Home screen. Second, you can swipe down from the top of the screen to launch Notification Center to see Status bar. For many users it can be very inconvenient or even annoying. 

StatusPeek 2 tweak fixes this problem by allowing you to peek at the Status Bar in fullscreen apps in iOS 10. When you swipe down from the top of the screen, instead the Notification Center grabber, you'll see the Status bar. It remains visible for a short period of time and then it will disappear. In case you want to view Notification Center, you can swipe down the Status bar.

This is really convenient and faster than if you were to go to the Home screen to view the Status bar. So if you need this functionality then download StatusPeek 2 tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free of charge and install on your jailbroken iOS 10 device. After installation the tweak will add a dedicated preferences pane to Settings app. From there you can easily enable or disable the tweak on demand and choose the light or the dark Status bar theme.

StatusPeek 2 jailbreak tweak offers a very convenient and easy way to peek at the Status Bar while you are using the fullscreen apps. This is really saves your time as you can view the Status bar with a simple swipe down gesture without opening Notification Center.
