A few days ago I mentioned a nice library enabling you to create custom navigation bars with gradient coloring, and blurring.

While that library utilizes a custom navigation bar class there are a wide number of customizations that can be done using the iOS SDK and iOS 7 has changed a few things.

If you’ve been wondering how to create customized status and navigation bars, or been struggling to get your custom status bars to look right in iOS 7 here’s a tutorial that uncovers how to create many different styles of custom status bars and other customizations in the status bar areas.

Some of the customizations you’ll learn include:

– How to change the background color
– How to use a background image
– How to create a custom back button
– Customizing the font
– Using an image as your title
– Change the status bar style (dark/light)

Here’s an image from the tutorial showing one of the custom status bars that you’ll create – made from a background image:
