How to make iOS 14 aesthetics with custom app icons
- Searching the web for the application icon (s) you like is an option, for example, “Clock Icons” or “Clock Icons Aesthetics”
In the example below I use the free images available icons8.com. On the iPhone, you can long-press and select images Add to photos desire.
- A quick way to create your iOS 14 aesthetic is to buy an icon set and save it all in the Photos app or Files app on your iPhone.
- Now that you have the new icons / images you want to use, open the Shortcuts app (Free from Apple If you do not already have)
Tap “+” Icon In the upper right corner – tap Add action – Search Open the app, Tap it – then Tap Select Featured in blue
- Now select the app from which you want to create a custom icon
After selecting the application, tap Three-point icon In the upper right corner – tap Shortcut name Above and enter one – tap now Add to home screen
- Tap Shortcut name Enter the one you want again (may be the original application or your own custom name
Now Tap the icon To the left of the name you just entered – now tap Select photo (Or Select the file If you download an icon for your iPhone)
- Now find and tap the icon or photo you want to use
Make sure it is centered or zoom in by tapping and dragging – tap ADD In the upper right corner – tap now Done
- Now go to your home screen or last application page to see the new app shortcut with your custom icon
Press and hold the app to enter Jigsaw mode to move it wherever you want
- Return to the shortcut application and tap Done Twice to return to the main screen
Repeat the process for all the applications you want – you can tap the three-point icon on the icon or something you have already done to change the name.
One thing to keep in mind when you create iOS 14 aesthetics with shortcuts app / custom icons is that when you tap on them to launch an app, you will briefly see the shortcuts app on your iPhone before opening the app attached to it. It’s a bit complicated, but this is the price we have to pay for the custom iOS 14 aesthetic (unless Apple allows us to change the icons of the actual apps).
