While iOS 14 came with some terrific new features, Home Screen customization seems to have taken off as one of the most talked about. You have Home Screen widgets that can be personalized, come in different sizes, for third-party apps, and can be put most anywhere.
Along with that and even though not new, creating custom app icons with Shortcuts has become more desirable. So if changing the app icons you see on your Home Screen is something that interests you, how about making sure you have the icons you want? Sure, you can use a photo of your pet or picture of your pal, but if you want to go with a theme, an iPhone icon pack is a terrific option.
Here are some awesome spots to find iPhone icon packs.
