Thanks to jailbreaking, you can make your iOS device look pretty much anyway you want. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of themes in Cydia that can alter the appearance of Apple’s mobile operating system.

But we’ve never seen anything like this before. Designer Anton Repponen has posted several images to his blog of what he imagines a Mac Plus-inspired iPhone theme would look like. Introducing iOS 86…

We have to say, the theme looks great. There’s something cool about blending Apple’s cutting edge handset with the interface of a classic Mac. So if any of you talented theme-makers out there are reading this, feel free to make this happen.

What do you think about iOS 86?

      It’s a cool novelty but not a theme I would keep running on my phone.

      Also I was never into Mac computers so the novelty is lost on me but I understand the retro nostalgia they’re trying to capture and know there is probably a decent size audience for this.

      If you were to use this theme and buy one of those cases you featured last week that look like retro apple computers it would be a complete throwback.

  • OMG I want it!!

  • that looks great but i still prefer stock

  • relase it please,omg!

    I think it looks terrible tbh, if the iPhone looked like a Nokia from the mid 90’s then ye.

  • if it was a complete theme, ( ie: icons, UI, NC, …) then it would be aswesome. i would use it for sure

  • Nice! Is available for download?

  • Winterboard themers…make it real!

    Been salivating over this all day. Poked around the internet, but couldn’t find any theme like it. Hope someone makes it happen. It deserves to live… on my phone.

      Make a theme folder, drag the original icons from the respective folders, edit them in photoshop, invert them or change the outer glow and overlay colurs and use a white wallaper … fairly simple tbh to make icons look like this.

      I’m not trying to sound big headed btw i’m just saying it is fairly easy to make icons using existing 1’s in photoshop.

  • i like it, but the fact that it needs winterboard. it makes me think twice, because i don’t know, but it seems to me every time I install a themes that uses winterboard I get a lot a trouble, because i have springtomize and it seem to be a really be issue with the two of them….

    • i’m using 3-4 themes right now on winterboar. also has springtomize 2 but dont have any issue yet

      • Installing winterboard will not allow to change icon labels custom color in your springtomize2. Well, this is the only problem i had while installing winterboard.

    • What was the themes that you installed in winterboard ?

  • I think i’ll pass on this one.

    neat but I wouldn’t use it
