Redoing your iPhone’s home screen required off last year when iOS 14 acquainted gadgets and the capacity to conceal default app icons for your own cool, modified ones.
Yet, iOS 15 opens up another aspect to home screen customization, on account of Focus modes — which give a speedy and simple method for stowing away and uncovering gatherings of home screens with a solitary tap. This is the way to do it:
Focus modes are apparently an augmentation of Apple’s Do Not Disturb mode — the expected thought behind the element is that you can tie explicit home screens to various use cases, such as having a work home screen with your schedule and email gadgets that naturally spring up when you’re in the workplace and a standard home screen with social media apps and music gadgets for when you’re off the clock.
However, since Focus modes let you pick home screens, you can likewise utilize them to rapidly trade between a record of uniquely themed symbols that you’ve made with matching alternate routes and gadgets, without having to physically conceal every one of your landing pages without fail.
Whenever you’ve done all that, you’ll need to go to Settings > Focus, select the particular Focus you need to use to trigger your custom home screen or screens. Then, at that point, select the Home Screen menu, flip the “Custom Pages” switch, and select the landing pages you might want to see when you empower the Focus mode. Then, at that point, you should simply turn on your Focus mode, and your telephone will transform into your ideal themed style at whatever point you’d like.
Assuming you’re truly able to put in any amount of work, however, you can exploit Shortcuts and make automation that changes your iOS backdrop at whatever point you turn on that Focus mode. Sadly, this doesn’t work incredibly — basically with the current iOS 15 beta — however, it is a possibility for those ready to sludge around with Shortcuts.
All of this is still a great deal of exertion for a themed home screen, obviously. Be that as it may, except if Apple yields and gives us better customization apparatuses one year from now, the new tricks in iOS 15 are the most ideal way to get your home screen looking beautiful.
With iOS 14, Apple has at long last enabled you to modify the format of your home screen somewhat. Rather than simply repositioning symbols, you can absolutely eliminate them because of the new App Library. With the new Widgets, you can, at last, fill your home screen with some different options from just applications.
Be that as it may, the new “stylish” iPhone pattern goes significantly further. By consolidating Shortcuts with custom symbols and exceptionally adjustable gadgets, you can give your iPhone a significantly unique look.
This is the way to get everything rolling making your iPhone “aesthetic.”
Firstly, get some icons
Before you do anything more, you’ll need to snatch a few pictures to use as symbols. There are loads of creators with matching symbol packs on the web, simply look for what suits you. Some are free, others (like Traf’s famous moderate symbols) are very costly.
An extraordinary method for discovering some free symbols is to scan Twitter for “tasteful iOS 14” and begin looking around.
You’ll need to add your icons to your Photos library. On your iPhone, long-press a picture and pick “Add to Photos.” If you have a Mac, you can drag pictures into your Photos app.
Use Shortcuts to replace apps
The way to supplant all your app symbols with your own plans is to supplant your genuine applications on your home screen with Shortcuts.
- Open the Shortcuts app (it comes introduced on your iPhone).
- Tap the + button in the upper right to make another Shortcut.
- Tap Add Action.
- Tap Scripting.
- Tap Open App.
- Tap the Choose word and select the application you need this alternate way to open.
- Tap the three dabs (…) in the upper right and select Add to Home Screen.
- Give your alternate way a name (the name of the application is smart).
- Tap the picture to one side of the name and pick Choose Photo. Select the picture from your Photos library you need to use as your new symbol.
- Tap Add in the upper right, and you’ll see a popup letting you know the easy route was added to the home screen.
Back on your home screen, you can see your new alternate shortcut. On the off chance that the first application symbol is as yet on the home screen, long-press it, pick Remove App, and afterward Move to App Library to get it off your home screen.
Rehash that interaction for each app you need to keep on your home screen and eliminate all the others, leaving them in your App Library.
There are three admonitions to know about when supplanting your applications with easy routes along these lines. To begin with, you will not get those little red warning identifications toward the side of your alternate ways like you will on genuine applications.
Second, when you dispatch an application from an alternate way, you’ll initially see a concise Shortcuts standard notice spring up before the application dispatches.
Furthermore third, you’ll lose the capacity to long-push on the application symbol to get to whatever speedy activities it has—the alternate route will not have those.
To match your custom application symbols, you’ll need some custom gadgets. New applications like Widgetsmith and Color Widgets are well-known choices.
You’ll utilize the application to plan your own gadgets, picking what data it will show, the textual styles, tones, borders, etc. Whenever you have your gadgets made, it’s an ideal opportunity to add them to your home screen.
- Tap and hang on any vacant space of your home screen until you enter “wiggle mode.”
- Tap the + sign in the upper left to add a gadget.
- Select the Widgetsmith or Color Widgets application (or whatever custom gadgets application you utilized) and the size of the widget you made.
- Tap Add Widget.
- Position the gadget on the home screen, and keeping in mind that still in squirm mode, tap it to change its choices—you might need to pick the specific gadget you’ve altered.
- Tap Done in the upper right to leave squirm mode.
There are cut-off points to how you can manage custom gadgets at the present time, however, the abilities of these applications keep on extending.
On the off chance that you’re willing to acknowledge the restrictions of utilizing easy routes to dispatch your applications and utilizing custom gadgets, you can make some really novel home screen looks!
