It seems that minimalism is a default aspect in iOS 7 themes. A cursory look at all the new Winterboard themes for iOS 7 seems to reveal a lot of minimal themes. Our previous coverage on these iOS 7 Winterboard themes for iPhone had some of them too.
We tried to nail down some of the themes that looked truly minimal. Well, we couldn’t miss out Ayecon even though it doesn’t fit the minimalist label completely. Take a look at the themes and tell us your minimal favorites!
5 Minimal Winterboard Cydia Themes for iOS 7
1. 0bsucre 7
0bscure 7 is a relatively minimal theme in terms of colors and iconography. It’s a beautiful theme if you like monochrome: black and white. The theme looks awesome with its set of custom icons. But I think it’s a little trick actually: if you have a lot of custom apps, put them in other homescreens while have stock apps on the first page. That will make the theme look really great and minimal.

Ayecon was an instant-hit when it launched for iOS 6. Surenix, the developer, has finally updated the theme to support iOS 7 too. Ayecon isn’t the perfect candidate for a minimal type of a Winterboard theme but it does have a lot of elements that make it seem minimal. Ayecon has a riot of colors and custom icons designed by the developer. And the mods are truly awesome for iOS 7. For users who have purchased Ayecon already, it’s a free upgrade.

Passtel is a flat theme designed to bring pastel colors to iOS 7 – something that Apple never does. The theme has an amazingly minimal set of custom icons for a lot of apps. You can grab some mask packs from reddit and play with icon mask shapes.
