How to change App Icons

Let’s move on to the next! You can change app icons to your images you like. This will be set up using the "Shortcut" application, which has been available since iOS 14 and above. It takes time and effort because you need to change app icon one by one. (After this explanation, we will also tell you how to customize icons all at once without using a shortcut app. But basically it’s better to use shortcut app to change app icons , so let's learn how to use shortcut applications first.)

First, collect the images you want to use as app icons

All images in your “photo” app can be used as app icons, and also you can get icons for free or for a fee from 3k+ app icon designs with WidgetClub!

Set icons by “shortcut” as the following steps

Use the Shortcuts app, which is always included on iPhones with iOS 14 or higher. “Shortcuts” app is a service that allows you to automate an action by setting a rule.
