How To Remove Unnecessary Things From The Settings App In iOS 10

Those folks who own jailbroken iPhone can now remove unnecessary things from the Settings app in iOS 10 installing new Cydia tweak called SkinnySettings. Most iDevices owners usually use the Settings app to learn how much functionality is packed inside of it from Apple and from jailbreak tweaks that are installed from Cydia.

Some users find the Settings app more cluttered up than it needs to be out of the box. For them CydiaGeek developed SkinnySettings jailbreak tweak. The premise around this Cydia release is to clear the Settings app by removing some of the unnecessary things. Consequently, the Settings app looks less cluttered with the simplified UI.

In the image example below you can see example of how Settings app looks before and after installing SkinnySettings jailbreak tweak. As you've noticed the app icons, separator lines, and even the Status Bar are hidden from user's view. But this isn’t everything the tweak can do.

To get the ability to remove unnecessary things from the Settings app in iOS 10 on your jailbroken device you need to download SkinnySettings. 

The tweak is available as a free download package from Cydia and works with jailbroken iOS 10, 9, and 8 devices. To view all the SkinnySettings configuration options you need to visit tweak's preferences pane in the Settings app.

Once you're done configuring the tweak's options there is no need to respring your device. All you have to do is to simply kill the Settings app from the App Switcher and then restart it to view the recently made changes.

Although not every option in SkinnySettings will look great to everyone, as tastes may vary. That said, you can pick and choose tweak's options to get the look you’re going for.
