How to Customize iPhone App Icons

If you have a liking for customizing app icons on your iPhone and iPad, navigate through this hands-on guide to completely transform the looks of your favorite applications.

I have always liked customizing app icons on my iPhone. It’s a nice way to add some personal touch to your device. Now, it’s become more straightforward to modify the looks of app icons on iOS devices thanks to some elegant platforms like iSkin.

It allows you to install themed apps on your iOS device with ease. It has been developed to work with iPhone, iPad and iPod running iOS 7 or later and is available for free.

Interestingly, it only adds the themed app icons on your device Home screen and doesn’t replace the existing ones. Therefore, you will need to put all your stock apps in a folder to hide them once iSkin has added shortcuts to your Home Screen. Sounds interesting? Let me demonstrate how it works the right way!

How to Install Themed App Icons on iPhone and iPad

Step #1. Launch Safari on your iOS device you want to theme. And, visit iSkin web page.

Step #2. Next up, you have to scroll down and tap on Browse all themes under Install iOS Themes.
