How To Summon Banners With iPhone Battery Information In iOS 10

New Cydia release called BatteryBanners allows you to summon banners with iPhone battery information on demand via Activator that shows a numeric battery level percentage. The Status Bar has already a battery icon and iOS can be configured to show the numeric battery level percentage right beside it. On the other hand BatteryBanners tweak allows you to disable the feature but still let you get to battery information when you need it.

So how this tweak can be useful? The Status Bar easily becomes overbearingly cluttered with icons and words, such as those from long carrier names, the rotation lock icon, the VPN indicator, the alarm icon, and more.

To avoid this problem, some find that disabling the numeric battery percentage helps to conserve space. The only problem with this is you’re then forced to rely on an icon to tell you how much battery is remaining, but because the icon doesn’t show any numbers, it isn’t as informative.

To start to use BatteryBanners tweak you should grab it from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free and install on your device. The tweak is compatible with iOS 10 devices and Activator must be installed to set it up.

As it was already said BatteryBanners tweak is invoked via Activator, so it’s super easy to access it from anywhere in iOS. For instance, you can be in an app, or on the Home screen or even on the Lock screen and easily see your actual numeric battery level percentage by invoking the gesture you've set.

To set this gesture launch the Activator preferences pane or app, choose the gesture, then assign BatteryBannners tweak to it:

I think BatteryBannners is really useful tweak as you can summon banners with iPhone battery information from whenever in iOS any time you need to check this details.
