How to show status bar in iOS inside a folder
Thanks to a jailbreak tweak called FolderStatus, the status bar will always remain visible if you are in a folder in iOS.
Can’t see the status bar inside a folder? Don’t worry, FolderStatus is here to change all that.
Apple has taken some weird and wonderful steps in designing its software to look good in the corners where we least expect it to be. Take a look at that homescreen, for example, as soon as you pull it up it all fades to reveal Spotlight Search, with the keyboard popping up so you can type whatever you want. But the same cannot be said for the files. You see, while they perform their function in the brightest way you can imagine, they tend to hide everything else when in sight. In case you haven’t noticed, as soon as you tap on a folder, the status bar simply disappears while blurring everything. It is likely that Apple made this decision to make the records look good. But for some users, it can be an eyebrow enhancer. If so, and you have a jailbroken device, you’ll be happy to hear that a simple tweak called FolderStatus can fix everything in one fell swoop.
With the FolderStatus tweak installed from the BigBoss repository in Cydia, the status bar will be visible no matter which folder you open on your home screen. While the background will fade as usual, but the status bar will not leave your view. This is important, especially if you like to keep an eye on signal strength, battery level, and other information in the status bar at all times.
The tweak is absolutely free to download and use. But there is a small problem with that: it is only compatible with iOS 10 and 64-bit devices. If you have something a little older, you have absolutely no chance of getting the luxurious status bar in the files.
Try the tweak and let us know what you think. The tweak may not seem like much, but it’s heaven for those who don’t want to lose sight of status bar information.
