It seems that iOS 14 had a secret gem that no one noticed during the beta period. You can now customize your iPhone home screen using Siri shortcuts and custom app icons. As you can imagine, Twitter and Pinterest users went crazy, sharing their creations, leading to Pinterest having a record app download week.
This trend reminds me of 2013 when everyone was jailbreaking their iPhones to install themes and change the UI. Fast-forward to seven years later, and you can actually do that with the official OS. Who knew? That doesn’t mean that everyone ends up with a fancy iOS 14 homescreen, though. In fact, most homescreens we’ve seen under the #iOS14Homescreens hashtag that’s trending on Twitter are the opposite of clean, minimalistic UIs, so we wanted to help.
We rolled up our sleeves, brewed some fresh coffee, and went on a mission to find you the best iOS 14 icon packs so that you can customize your iPhone’s homescreen easily. Keep in mind that we’re featuring premium icon packs since they’re the fastest way to customize your homescreen. This takes into consideration that the designers behine each pack carefully created them following certain guidelines and assembled the icon pack (which could take many hours). Full transparency, we don’t earn a commission, and these creators haven’t sponsored this post.
