    Default 'NoLiveClock' Disables the Live Clock Application Icon in iOS 7 and Later


    iOS 7 and iOS 8 both come with an animated Clock application icon that shows the actual time in real time. The second hand is constantly spinning to show you the accurate time down to the second, just like an actual clock.

    If you're worried about how much CPU usage and battery consumption that this might be using, you can use a new free jailbreak tweak called NoLiveClock by iOS developer Mordred666 to disable the live animation so that your device doesn't have to keep the application icon animated while you stare at the Home Screen.

    Instead, with this tweak installed, the application icon will only update when you close applications, so you can see the actual time whenever you close the application that you're in and see the icon on your Home Screen. It will show the last-updated time instead of showing a static time all of the time and instead of updating every single second. This gives you a semi-accurate time, without being so inaccurate that you can't even use it.

    NoLiveClock has no options to configure just install it and you're good to go. The tweak works on both iOS 7 and iOS 8.

    ...you can now examine power consumption in iOS 8. And guess what, the clock icon will never show up. Another useless tweak.

    The icon itself isn't an app. It's a process. It wouldn't show up there anyways.
