Apple first demoed iOS 14 at WWDC 2020 and showcased a number of the operating system’s upcoming changes. Hiding behind the scenes, however, were a plethora of smaller changes that were seemingly too tiny to mention on stage. One of those changes included an updated and more aesthetically pleasing Calendar app icon.
If you’re jailbroken on iOS 13, then you’re probably hesitant to upgrade to iOS 14 this Fall, and understandably so. Fortunately, the community is bringing several of iOS 14’s unique features to pwned iOS 13 devices. One of the latest of such add-ons is a free jailbreak tweak dubbed Valentine by iOS developer ArtikusHG, which ports iOS 14’s new Calendar app icon to jailbroken iOS 13 handsets.
In the before and after screenshot comparison above, you’ll see the distinctive differences between the Calendar app icon on iOS 13 (left) and iOS 14 (right). The changes are subtle, but they make a bolder statement in terms of aesthetics.
Not only does the iOS 14 icon exhibit a bolder numeric date text that makes the iOS 13 version look mellow, but it features an abbreviated and all-caps day display, which is also larger and bolder.
Whether or not you like iOS 13 or iOS 14’s Calendar app icon design better comes down to personal preference, but it’s nice to know that users now have the choice to choose between the two on their pwned handsets. Obviously, the tweak doesn’t come with any options to configure since it’s only designed to do one thing.
If you’re interested in trying Valentine on your pwned iPhone, then you can download it for free from ArtikusHG’s personal repository via your favorite package manager. The tweak supports jailbroken iOS 10, 11, 12, and 13 devices. Furthermore, Valentine is open source on the developer’s GitHub page for anyone that might be interested in learning how it works.
Those who aren’t already using ArtikusHG’s personal repository can add it to their package manager of choice with the following URL:
