Give your iPhone an iOS 7 makeover with this new theme

By , Jun 13, 2013

ios 7 theme 1

Folks feeling left out of all of the iOS 7 beta festivities will be happy to hear that there is now a way you can get in on the fun—no developer account required. A new theme just popped up in Cydia that promises to give your jailbroken iPhone an iOS 7-style makeover.

Now, obviously it’s not going to be exactly like iOS 7. You’re not going to get any of the new features that come with the major update, like the control center or the revamped Notification Center. But if you just want your iPhone to look like iOS 7, this theme is for you…

The theme is, aptly, called ‘iOS 7 Theme,’ and yes it requires WinterBoard. But if you can get past that, you’re just one quick download away from having the highly controversial, redesigned iOS 7 stock app icons scattered across your jailbroken iOS 6 device’s Home screen.

Unfortunately, new icons are about all you’ll get. It’s not nearly as expansive as ayecon, or some of the other more popular themes available right now. That being said, the iOS 7 Theme was put together in just a few days, so it’s possible we could see updates in the future.

But what it does, it does well. I’m using the iOS 7 beta on my iPhone 4S, and the icons on my iPhone 5 running the iOS 7 theme are a dead ringer (maybe they’re even the exact same ones). So, depending on how you feel about the iOS 7 icons, you may really like it.

Those really wanting to make their device look like it’s running iOS 7 can pickup the iOS 7 Lock screen theme, available in BigBoss. And I would recommend the BlurriedNCBackground, a theme for Notification Center that makes it look somewhat similar to iOS 7.

Anyway, if you want to check out the iOS 7 Theme, it’s available in Cydia, in the ZodTTD & MacCiti repo for free.

    why would anyone want the worst thing about ios7?

    • Jordan Carter

      Lol well put mr. Burgundy

    • yasin

      Many people like the icons for some reason the only one I like is the messages icon for some strange reason lol

      • Avery Massenburg

        If I had to pick my favorite Icon it would have to be the Photos Icon. Dispite the White background

      • Sigurd Boe

        I like the Messages icon, don’t like the Calendar icon, like the Photos icon, mixed feelings about the Camera icon, just don’t like the two colors in the gradient in the Videos icon, love the new Maps icon, like the new Weather icon, the Passbook icon is cool, but should be just a little flatter, I don’t know about the Notes Icon, Reminders icon is cool, Clock icon is awesome, Game Center icon sucks, Settings is cool but I think they should change it, App Store is just to neon, Compass is very cool, hate the iTunes, don’t like the Calculator, mixed feelings about Contacts, Phone is awesome, Mail is too neon, Safari is also too neon, Music is neon.

      • Micaiah Martin

        I like the passbook icon the best.

    • Kevin Guzman

      Music icon looks pretty cool… I guess.

    • EpicFacepalm

      To show how iOS 7 icons look to my friends

    • Ishaan Malhotra

      Haha..exactly!!

  • tbdm147

    People need to stop whining. This happens every single time a new version of iOS is released. People beg for change and then complain about the change. Then, when it’s released, it’ll be the most adopted version yet. I think it looks amazing. The background it what makes it more colorful and “childish”, have your own.

    • Jack Wong

      Exactly.

      I didn’t like it when they first announce it but after some video review, I do like the iOS 7.

      • yasin

        It’s a very drastic change and it’ll need some getting used to as Sebastian said in the podcast.

      • Jack Wong

        It is about time, it is the 7th generation!

        I can’t wait to see the new phone too~

      • http://rekit.tumblr.com/ rekit

        it’s really not drastic at all… the functionality is essentially the same with some very minor differences, intended to reduce the number of taps and actions to do what you want to do. most of the “drastic” changes are simply cosmetic.

      • yasin

        Not sure how you misunderstood but by “drastic” I meant the visual aspect not functionality

    • Siddharth Desai

      You nailed it, Changing the wallpaper has a profound effect on the way iOS 7 looks. I changed my background to a dark graphite color and it actually looks pretty good.

    • Stephen Hagans

      I mostly agree with you. People are always going to complain. But with that said, they typically bicker about small preferences but there is such a thing as bad design. Bad as in …. Bad. It’s good mostly but these icons are not good design, that unfortunately is not an opinion.

      • tbdm147

        Enlighten me on how it is not an opinion.

      • Rudy

        Because it was proven by the great “Stephen Hagans ” !! U don’t know him ?

      • Stephen Hagans

        So the design is good?

      • Rudy

        I like the new design !! That’s my opinion !! I’m switching back to ios !!

      • tbdm147

        I quite enjoy it. I got extremely excited watching the live blog when they first showed it.

      • Rudy

        Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

  • tbdm147

    Does anyone have the link to the wallpaper?

    • Marc

      unfortunately, no.

    • Ian

      Scroll down the whole way.

      replace * with a period.

  • Chris Willard

    I only looked at it for a second, and I can see several places where it’s wrong.

    • Michael Jay Delaney

      The Calendar icon font is in bold. Big deal. Nothing to do with the status bar cause this is obviously just an icon theme. So what else do you see wrong?

    • Gorgonphone

      the original IOS7 is all wrong visually so who cares..lol

  • Chuck Norris

    Fonts are way to thick.

    • MrM0N0P0LY

      (Insert chick Norris meme)

  • Michael Jay Delaney

    Not that I care for it one way or the other, but why do people dislike Winterboard?

    • http://twitter.com/jmarsh5 Justin Marshall

      From personal experience, it slows my phone WAAAYYY down. Also eats up a lot of resources in the process.

      • Michael Jay Delaney

        Really now? Hmm…Never thought it would make that big of a difference.

      • http://twitter.com/jmarsh5 Justin Marshall

        It does. I’m on an iPhone 5 too.

      • Michael Jay Delaney

        And obviously the bigger the theme the worse it’ll be…like say ayecon. Probably digging into my speed?

      • http://twitter.com/jmarsh5 Justin Marshall

        I don’t know if that is how it works. I don’t think the themes themselves are slowing things down. I think it is more Winterboard itself. Could be wrong. I am sure someone will correct me if I am.

      • Gorgonphone

        its not as bad as before but still sucks

    • Gorgonphone

      uses up ram

      • Michael Jay Delaney

        Just having Winterboard or having themes that use Winterboard? That’s the ultimate question. I assume the more “sophisticated” the theme the worse it will be.

  • http://twitter.com/jmarsh5 Justin Marshall

    Literally downloaded winterboard and the theme for 2 minutes just to look at it. I can honestly say that the icons are not as bad as people are making them out to be. I actually kind of like them. Maybe its because I HATE the whole skuemorphism thing, but really, they aren’t so bad.

  • ɑղժɾҽա

    I still hate the dock in iOS 7.

    • Gorgonphone

      it has no dock..lolol

  • Erny Carrillo

    I love it!!!!

  • Erny Carrillo

    Signal bars are diff! Round circles

  • Sandeep Roy

    ha, already done.

  • Jailbreaker

    Flaticons + IOS 7 Theme = good combination
    IOS7 Lockscreen + SubtleLock = also

  • dnice

    im having issues witht he status bar with this theme, seems like its overlapping icons twice. for example the pattery percentage is shown but you can see it also shown behind it. and when im on wi-fi i see LTE overlapping with it as well. very strange.anyone else see this? oh btw this only happens at the homescreen, not in apps.

    • Sandeep Roy

      Similar scenario here. No wifi icon in status bar,only on home screen (maybe long carrier name issue). Slide to unlock is also a struggle – needs 3 attempts.

  • Jeff H

    Best icon is the clock

  • Burge

    To get more iOS 7 beta
    Card switcher
    3dboard
    Live clock
    Plus this theme
    And a tweak that will crash the device when you least expect it..

    • Shiios Avila

      Don’t forget livepapers

  • Shan

    The icons that bug me the most are for photos, game center, and safari. Its something that I’m going to have to live with though

    • Gorgonphone

      sad

  • Brett Griffin

    There is another option in Cydia, also called ‘iOS 7 theme’ by pw5a29. It is also a Winterboard theme but it includes the icons, status bar and lockscreen in one.

  • Gorgonphone

    um the look is the worst part of IOS7 why would i want it?

  • sjah07

    Some of those icons are starting to grow on me, but not the Safari one. It literally makes me frown when I see it.

  • Mohamed Ibrahem

    i am just back to ios 6 and icons are way better than those crap !

  • Dylfo

    Lets see a ui theme now pleaseeee

  • Al

    I’d rather wait for iOS8,might be better than iOS7.

  • Preet Patel

    guys …dont worry im trying to make a better version of this theme and i have great success in doing this.hope to release it after 2 days

    • Sandeep Roy

      Looking forward to that :)

  • Ishaan Malhotra

    I dont like the part where you have to reach the bottom of the page or press the address bar just to be able to press the back button in safari. I like the full screen safari but i need the back and forward buttons to stay

  • Micael

    This works on iPads too?

  • Mohamed Nasser

    I knew that someone would do this soon

  • http://www.twitter.com/Namra297 Namra

  • Sleetui

    I applied the theme but it didn’t work for me. Instead it shrunk my screen size a bit and the only thing that did change was my badges.

    Anyone else have this problem? And if so please tell me how to fix, I already tried to respring and reboot my iPhone.

    Specs: iPhone 3GS/iOS 6.1.3

  • Alan

    I still have spots left under my developer account for
    anyone who would like to be registered to install the iOS7 betas! I only ask for a small donation. Message me at nalakrub1 at Google if
    interested.

  • cmverde

    The best iOS 7 theme by far on Cydia, iOS 7 Theme by pw5a29.
    Is the most complete, and is regularly updated as iOS 7 progreses from its beta.

  • dilucy

    is anyone else having a problem seeing the white fonts on the characters and the grey background? It is impossible to see in natural light.
