Through Velvet jailbreak tweak, you can customize the cosmetic appearance of notification banners, lock-screen notifications, and the Now-Playing media player information banner on your iPhone. The tweak works at two levels viz Velvet and classic iOS appearance. Velvet is a completely modern approach as it removes the header altogether. The classic iOS one retains the stock appearance and allows us to customize the same. Let us have an elaborate look on the features and functionalities.

How Velvet Tweak [Customize Notification Banners] Works?

The Velvet jailbreak tweak provides a plenitude of customization alternatives viz bordering, custom coloring, notification styles, highlighting, and more. Post successful installation of the tweak, a dedicated preference pane comes up in the Settings app of your iPhone where you can configure the available options to your desire. Following is the screenshot provided for your reference.
