One of the most important differences between iOS and Android was the degree of freedom of users to customize the interface for themselves – Google gave more freedom and less stability, and Apple was betting on a pre-verified design and reliability. With the release of the operating system iOS 14, the situation changed.
With the release of iOS 14, iPhone and iPad users suddenly found that Apple now allows you to fundamentally redesign the home screen of your mobile devices with customizable application icons, wallpaper and widgets.
To change the icons of the application in iOS 14, you can use the updated application “Shortcuts”, and to create your own widgets – application Widgetsmith.
In social networks, users post the results of such home screen settings to their own taste. For example, in Twitter you can find very interesting examples of customization by hashtag #ios14homescreen.
Some people rely on such popular culture phenomena as Animal Crossing, the Stephen Universe, Harry Potter, Minecraft and BTS. Others make a “painted” interface or neon application icons, while others design a home screen for Windows 98, PlayStation 2 and even iOS 6 – in a number of versions this is the “last beautiful firmware” for the iPhone, because with the release of iOS 7 in 2013 Apple gave up skevomorphism in the interface design.
