If you've downloaded iOS 14, chances are you've seen plenty of Home Screen redesigns making the rounds on the internet. It seems like a simple way to change up your look, but users have admitted to spending hours making their own custom widgets and iOS 14 app icons. Yes, it can take some time to create the aesthetic app icons of your dreams, but many creatives have come up with color-coordinated icon packs all ready to go, which you can download for free or a small fee. Once you know where to find iOS 14 app icons, you'll be ready to upgrade your Home Screen.
There's no denying one of iOS 14's most exciting features is the ability to swap out the app icons for apps like Weather, TikTok, and Mail to any image of your choosing, but it can take a long time. You can create your own Home Screen aesthetic by coming up with a theme, searching images that fit within that theme and color-scape, and saving them to your device, but some people have already put in the hours needed to create iOS 14 app icons — and the results guarantee a stunning and uniform look you can employ with barely any effort.
Once you're ready to customize your app icons, you'll first need to open Apple’s Shortcuts app, then tap on the plus sign located in the top right corner of the app. To change the name of the icon, choose "Add Action," then tap on "Scripting," "Open App," and "Choose," before tapping on the app you're trying to change. After that, tap "Next," change the name of the app, and tap "Done."
To swap out the image, tap the three-dot menu next to the shortcut action that you just made, tap it again, then select "Add to Home Screen." You'll then see the option to tap on "Home Screen Name and Icon." Tap that, and you'll be taken to your camera roll to swap out the original app image with a photo of your choosing.
To make things a little easier, you can download a pack of pre-made aesthetic app icons so they're ready to go.
Here are some of the best app icons packs you can download for free or for less than $6 on Etsy:
