The latest release of the Status Bar Changer tweak adds also an option to hide some icons displayed in your Status Bar. These include Do Not Disturb Icon, Rotation Lock Icon, Clock Icon, and AirPlane Icon. Whether you’re looking to set a custom carrier text, or make it seem like you have something other than an LTE or 5G connection, this tweak has all your bases covered.

All features provided by the Status Bar Changer tweak work perfectly on iOS 14. No SIM text replacement is also truly supported! The tweak was tested with unc0ver jailbreak but Taurine and checkra1n jailbreak should be also supported.

When you run an older device with iOS 9 - iOS 13 installed, you can install other tweaks to change the carrier name such as Zeppelin, Carrierizer, CarrierModern, or Xeon. To have even more control over your Status Bar I would recommend trying NoClutter or MiniXS tweak.
