The Status bar tells you the time, it tells you how much battery is left and it also indicates connectivity. But it can be much more than this.

Cydia tweaks have focused on customizing the status bar for a long time. With iOS 7, the game goes up one level and we have a lot of status bar Cydia tweaks that are aimed at pushing more information and experience through the status bar. Check this list:

Best iOS 7 Status Bar Cydia Tweaks

10 Best StatusBar Cydia Tweaks to Customize iOS 7 Status Bar

Zeppelin
Of the tweaks that don’t need any introduction, Zeppelin is one. Zeppelin puts custom icons instead of the default carrier name indicator on the status bar. The icons can be anything (from Batman to Optimus Prime to any other custom icon that you add). The tweak ships with a bunch of popular icons and you can add your own. You will find a ton of themes/icon packs on Reddit.

NowPlayingStatusBar
With iOS 7, Apple decided to remove the Now Playing icon from the status bar. It was one simple little icon (of course, in many cases not very useful) but if you rely on that icon for some reason and want it back, NowPlayingStatusBar is a Cydia tweak that will do it. The tweak is designed to put that little play icon back on the status bar when music is playing on your iPhone. Incidentally, you can alter the alignment of the icon with the tweak’s preferences.

StatusBarSuite
StatusBarSuite is one of the most useful tweaks for minimalists. If you think the status bar gets cluttered with too much of information, the only way out is hiding them. StatusBarSuite comes with a few switches that you can toggle to hide/show parts of the status bar: time, carrier, signal strength indicator, Wi-Fi icon, cellular data icon, time, DND, battery and more. It cleans up your status bar.

StatusWeather
Would you like to have some real-time weather info displayed right on the status bar (near the time)? StatusWeather is a simple tweak that puts weather information (based on Current Location) on the status bar. You can double-tap on the status bar to trigger a simple information dialog that presents weather information with temperature and humidity. That box also comes with a button to launch the weather app.

StatusTime+
StatusTime+ is a status-bar time format modifier. You have all these formats that you can pick to make the status bar time display seconds, days, months, year and even custom text. There’s a formatting guide that will come in handy when you modify the format within StatusTime+’s preferences.

Alkaline
Quite a smart name for a tweak that modifies the battery icon in the status bar. Alkaline lets you customize the battery icon on your iOS device. It comes with two default themes and the good thing is that it does not rely on Winterboard for the customization. There’s Bolus, a slimmer battery icon and Habesha which is more of a progress-bar-style battery indicator. Someone noted that each theme has about 400 images: the tweak itself is quite small but it’s exquisitely crafted.

StatusHUD 2
StatusHUD was a very popular (and very useful) status bar tweak that integrated the Volume HUD into the status bar. It goes a long way in terms of simplifying the user-interface when you use the volume buttons. The volume up/down is indicated by a circle/square (which you can configure) right on the status bar. The v2 is compatible for iOS 7 devices.

Percentage
iOS lets you turn off the battery percentage number from the status bar but when the battery hits red, you need to know the percentage. Percentage is a tweak that brings this conditional feature to iOS 7. When the battery hits 20%, the number indication switches on. At other times, there is no number indication; so that saves space on the status bar in a conditional way.

StatusModifier
I’ll call this a combination of StatusBarSuite and StatusTime+ along with one important addition: the tweak puts free RAM information right beside the time display. StatusModifier comes with a bunch of toggles too which can hide/show the battery icon, the time, carrier logo etc. You can change the format of the time.

MyStatusBar
MyStatusBar is an upcoming tweak that aims to add a lot of customization features to the status bar elements. Think of it as a combination of many of the tweaks mentioned above. With MyStatusBar, you can toggle visibility of elements, format the time, add custom animated text, replace time with IP address, RAM or other options etc. The tweak is quite packed with a ton of features to try.
