The introduction of the App Library in iOS 14 made Home Screen folders a moot point for many iPhone users. Still, some continue to use folders to organize app icons on the Home Screen, even in a post-App Library world.
Recognizing that this niche still exists, iOS developer Sirius24 released a new jailbreak tweak dubbed FolderPlus to provide users with a substantial amount of folder-centric customization that simply can’t be achieved on stock handsets.
As you’ll see in some of the screenshot examples above, FolderPlus makes a lot of different things possible, including borders, colors, gradients, icon styles, layouts, sizes, and more.
Once installed, users will find a new preference pane in the Settings app where they can get their hands dirty with different personalization options pertaining to their Home Screen folders:

- Enabling or disabling FolderPlus on demand
