iOS 18 will revolutionize the iPhone Home screen by allowing you to change the color of app icons

All social media apps can be one color or each app can have its own color

Customization is also coming to the iOS 18 home screen, allowing users to place app icons wherever they want for the first time in iOS history. But it looks like it will be much more than that, as you will also be able to change the colors of the app icons.

As Mark Gurman points out in the latest installment of his Power-On newsletteriOS 18 will come with many customization features, including the ability to place app icons wherever the user wants, as well as change the color of their icons, something that can currently only be done with the Shortcuts app.

iOS 18 Will Bring Historic Changes to the iPhone Home Screen

Mark Gurman gives some examples of how users could implement this new feature. For example, all social media apps could be blue, and all banking apps could be green. However, the color of the applications may vary depending on the user.

Currently, you can only change the app icon through the Shortcuts app. Simply put the shortcut on the home screen and assign an image to it. The downside of this method is that it’s not an app per se, but a shortcut. That means features like notification balloons are lost.

Another thing to keep in mind is that in iOS 18 you can also place the icons wherever the user prefers, being able to leave blank spaces following the imaginary grid that we have today. This way, the icons can have their own position and color. Undoubtedly, two changes that seemed complicated to achieve.

Recall that iOS 18 will be presented at WWDC 2024 on June 10, so there are two weeks left to clear up any doubts. iOS 18 will also include AI features in native apps, as well as a completely revamped assistant, which is expected to be the basis of all the new features and the main protagonist of the conference.
