The iOS version 14 update lets the iPhone user match features with the android users. Through this update, iPhone users can change the appearance of their iOS devices. Before iOS version 14, all Apple users were forced to have the same exact display screen application icon. But with this update, iPhone users now have the ability to personalize their devices and make them more attractive and unique.
All you need is a personalized icon or any other image and the shortcut app. From the huge pile of icons present online, you can choose the one you like the most. Users also prefer using other applications to create their own exclusive icons and make use of them according to their needs or wishes. You can also follow a specific theme and change all the icons of the application accordingly. The following theme makes your phone more interesting and attractive.
What Does Shortcut App Actually Do?
All iPhone users have gone crazy over the customization feature and are constantly changing their default icons. But, how does it work? Here’s how the “shortcut app” will create an entirely new application with the name and the application icon which you have provided or chosen.
So, towards the end, there will be two applications. For instance, if a new photo application is created using the shortcut app, you will find two photo applications found on the home screen (default application and newly created application). Users, can continue using the newly created application and move the default application to the library. The default application can not be deleted.
