“Back to App” is a new feature included in iOS 9, which is useful to navigate back to app you were using. When in browser, you are redirected to an app; you will notice a message “Back to app” in status bar. The text will hide your cellular network and Wi-Fi in status bar.

There’s a tweak in Cydia which will remove the text and just display the arrow, giving enough room to display cellular signals and Wi-Fi. The tweak is very small in size and does not need any kind of settings. Above all, it is completely free. Apart from that, there is another tweak, with which you can swipe the text away. But down side is that you won’t be able to navigate back to the app.
