Little else is known about the specifics of how this tweak will work, or even what features will be included in the initial release so that remains to be seen.

It is also unclear how well this tweak will work with notchless devices but the developer promises that this will work just as well on the notched devices as it will on the notchless ones.

This tweak is yet to be officially unveiled. The developer adds that when it does, it will only support iOS 13, but this will change quickly. This means that support for older versions of iOS will soon be added to the tweak in subsequent releases.

This tweak will be available for free and will be released soon on the developer’s repo.
