The Notification Center for your iPhone is simply a matter of course. As useful as displaying important alerts, reminders, and more, the feature is rather boring compared to the customizable Control Center, Accessibility Shortcuts, and others.
Admittedly, viewing and interacting with notifications was not intended to be exciting, but if you have a jailbroken iPhone, there are a number of features that you can add to the Notification Center to significantly improve your experience. This can range from very simple mods that overload warnings to extensive customization of the user interface for a unique look. So here are ten improvements that are definitely worth checking out.
Before You Begin
Keep in mind that many of these enhancements are not available natively in Cydia or Sileo, which means you need to add a repo manually to hold it in your hands. The process is fairly straightforward, but you can also visit one of the following links if you are unfamiliar with the process.
On your iPhone notched panel, you can view the Battery Percentage by viewing the Control Center or adding the Batteries widget on the Today page. With MoreNotificationLabelBattery from CydiaGeek you can add the battery percentage to the Notification Center.
The optimization essentially replaces the term "More" in grouped notifications with the battery percent of your iPhone and eliminates the extra step of either clicking on the Control Center or Today view to see the exact battery life of your device. The installation of MoreNotificationLabelBattery is free and can be done by adding cydiageek.yourepo.com in Cydia or Sileo
2. Clearing Grouped Notification Cards
Alternatively, you can remove the notification label "More" from grouped notification cards instead of replacing it with a battery percentage indicator as mentioned above. With the apt name NoMoreNotificationLabel, CydiaGeek's handy mod removes the label in alarm cards with more than one notification for a more streamlined appearance to either Cydia or Sileo. After installation, the optimization is activated automatically, without you having to make any further settings.
3. Group Notifications
If you want to organize your notifications and group them on an app-based basis with minimal clutter, try Axon. Nepeta's sophisticated mod is essentially a remake of the popular Priority Hub tweak, which ported the classic alarm 10's clustered alarm functionality to iOS.
In a nutshell, Axon groups all your alerts in a clear order by app on the lock screen and in the notification center. From there, you can view app-specific notifications simply by tapping their icons.
Axon automatically activates once You can also access the menu in the Settings app to access items such as Layout of icons, haptic feedback, sort order, and more. That said, it's worth noting that Nepeta's official repo is offline. To get this optimization, add chr0nict.github.io/Nepeta-Mirror/ to your "Sources" list in Cydia or Sileo.

If you frequently forget to check alerts, there is a great feature that helps you to make sure that you do not miss any important notifications. Voice Notification of With merdok you can listen to incoming alerts freehand by dictating them at the inbox.

Speak Notification is available in BigBoss + repo, so you do not have to install external repos to hold it in your hands.
. 5 Get Rid of App Names and Headers
The Notification Center and Today page on your iPhone provide an intuitive way to view alerts, although you can not do much about customization. However, with the Notifica Tweak, you can make the user interface more appealing to the eye.
The Nepeta tweak allows you to remove unnecessary clutter on both the Notification Center and the Today page, such as: For example, headers and app names for a sleeker look. In addition, you can color your alerts or set their opacity to highlight them.
Like Axon above, Notifica can be installed by adding chr0nict.github.io/Nepeta-Mirror/ first in Cydia or Sileo.
Notifications that appear first on the lock screen disappear when you unlock your iPhone. So if you have not reviewed a notification from there and locked your device, you need to access it via the Notification Center. If you want the notifications to appear on the lock screen to remind you until you have time to take a closer look, KingPuffdaddi's Notif Tweak has you covered.
As above on Notifica, Notif is available by default thanks to BigBoss + in Cydia and Sileo, so no external repo needs to be added. Best of all, the tweak will automatically run in the background after installation – with no additional settings or options to play.
