iPhone owners looking to get system stats can add an array of meters directly to the Notification Center. Stock iOS hides much of this information from the user, but NCMeters seeks to change this on jailbroken devices. In addition to free storage space, additional information can be added at a glance.
Meters to choose from include CPU usage, RAM available, free disk space, upload speed and download speed. Once the tweak is installed from Cydia, these meters can be enabled, disabled and reordered under Settings -> NCMeters. Customizations include different colors for both the meter icons and text.
The widget will appear every time the Notification Center is opened. NCMeters will update only when it’s in use, which saves battery life. Not only this, but the tweak uses native iOS command line tools for accuracy and efficiency. NCMeters is similar to the jailbreak tweak CCMeters, which can add the same stats and meter icons to the Control Center instead of Notification Center.NCMeters is available from the BigBoss repo on Cydia for free. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. Those with older firmware can jailbreak with Pangu (iOS 7.1) or evasi0n 7 (iOS 7.0).
