How To Get A Notification Banner With Weather Info On Demand On iPhone

If you want to get a notification banner with weather info on demand on iPhone then a new jailbreak tweak dubbed as WeatherBanners by iOS developer Cole Cabral makes seeing said information faster and easier. With full Activator integration, WeatherBanners displays a notification banner with the weather conditions outside on demand, as shown on the screenshot example below.


As you can see in our case the tweak displays the banner that says it’s 56? Fahrenheit outside and Sunny. The location of the weather information is conveniently drawn from the stock Weather app.

Let's learn how WeatherBanners tweak works in details.

How To Get A Notification Banner With Weather Info On Demand


So to get a notification banner with weather info on demand on iPhone in iOS 10 navigate to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download WeatherBanners tweak for only $0.99.The tweak works supports all jailbroken iOS 10 devices and requires Activator be installed for use.

Since the tweak integrates with Activator, you’ll need to assign it an Activator gesture. You can do that from Settings > Activator or from the Activator app on your Home screen:


On the example image we’ve assigned the tweak the double-tap on Status Bar gesture, but you can choose other gesture you want.

Note that WeatherBanners relies on the stock Weather app for its information. That said, if you removed the stock Weather app from your iOS 10 device, you will have to reinstall it from the App Store to use this tweak as it was intended, as third-party weather apps aren’t supported.

As a plus, the tweak doesn’t require location services, so it’s both battery and privacy-friendly. If you’ve disabled location services for the Weather app, it will automatically use the first of any manually-stored locations in your app.

So if you don't use Today and 3D Touch widgets to check the weather conditions then WeatherBanners tweak will brings you these details as a notification banner.
