However, there’a a workaround that allows users to use custom app icons for a particular app and a user can choose to change all the app icons in case they want to do that.
The process isn’t as easy as downloading a custom icon pack on android and applying it from the settings or custom launcher app. In the case of iOS, we will use Shortcuts app to create a shortcut with app opening command and then assign a custom image to that particular shortcut.
Sounds complicated right, let us simplify that for you in our step-by-step guide:
First and the most important thing is downloading app icon images of your choice. You can get plenty of free on the internet. Just make sure to download it from a trusted source.
Open Shortcuts app on your iPhone or iPad and tap on the ‘+’ icon to create a new Shortcut
Now, tap on Add Actions button and use search bar to find Open App action
Now, select the app for which you want to change the icon.
Then, tap on three horizontal dots and choose Add to home screen option
Tap on the placeholder app icon, it will open a drop down menu with options to choose a new image or click a new image.
Select the desired option. If you have already downloaded the app icons choose Files or photos
Choose the app icon and enter the name of the app as per your choice. You can also leave it blank to give the home screen a neat look.
Once done, tap on Add button and then tap on Done to save the shortcut.
Repeat the same steps for other apps to change the app icons.
Do note that, once you’ve created the app shortcut, clicking on them will first open the Shortcuts app and then redirect it to the app. Also, make sure not to delete the original app and to give it a fresh look, you can move them to App Library.
