Apple has released its latest iOS 14 update, and many people are starting to utilize the Shortcuts app which allows users to customize their home screens according to their preferences.
Internet users have been sharing a plethora of designs of their iPhone home screens in a variety of themes, including Star Wars, Friends and even the nostalgic Microsoft Paint aesthetic. With more freedom on your hands, the possibilities are virtually endless.
If you would like to join on board and express your creativity through your iPhone home screen, here are the steps to get started.
Firstly, you need to check if you have the Shortcuts app on your device. If you don’t, simply download it via the App Store.
On the app tap the ‘+’ icon at the top right-hand corner, and then select ‘add action’.
Pick out the app icon you want to start customizing with ‘open app’. Then, edit the name and add a file to change its design.
Finally, you can edit the background to match the icons, or leave it as it is, but be sure to remove the existing icon from your home screen to avoid having repeated shortcuts.
There are many ways to give your home screen a makeover. Check out some designs by other Twitter users for some inspiration.
