iOS 14 Home Screen Setups! Aesthetic, iOS 6 & More!

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

what's that i'm too rich it can't be hold on let me get my third iphone i can't hear you clearly okay hey just joking hey what's up guys i got three phones uh because i want to be showing you today how to do three different setups something uh pretty advanced like this like an ios 6 theme on your iphone to something a little bit more uh more feng shui for all the visco girls out there sort of a i don't know they call it aesthetic i'm way too into this now and also something basic just to start messing around with

Widgets and probably the most practical setup of the bunch all right if you guys are excited for this one drop a like down below hit subscribe for more i want to show you how to do all three so here's my aesthetic page right here and i want to show you from scratch how i got here now i'm going to also throw some screenshots up of other similar ones that i've seen they are far better i just think like this is the best i can do as a guy okay cut me some slack please so you need two things to do this first

You need some pictures or images to use for your app icons second and really most importantly you need this app called widget smith again link is down below once you've downloaded widgetsmith uh all you have to do is is launch it up so i type in widgetsmith you can see right there popped up for me and you're gonna have a couple things in here off the rip it'll just say like small number one medium number one large number one for my setup i i just messed with small

And medium so let me show you from scratch what it's gonna look like this is what you get i know you're like how do i you know it looks a little boring right so what you do is just tap on it again and then you can start customizing everything so for me i wanted to do like uh scrolling down a little bit a photo maybe of a quote so what you do here is once you have the the photo saved you just hit choose photo it pops up with a bunch of stuff and you can tap on what you want it formats it

For you you go back you hit save and then we'll also do one more for medium so let's say i want to do something a little bit more advanced like the time at the top of my display you can change the location you can change the font just by going through here and then i want to make the background very uh i don't know very different so i'm going to tap on pastel purple hit save again okay so this is just the basics once you've gotten that go ahead and make a new page or add it

To one of your existing pages and once you've done that you can hit on the plus then scroll all the way down to the bottom where you see widget smith and then you're gonna have three options now right now they don't look like your widgets but just tap on one for example i'm going to start with medium and you can see it automatically formats it to just basically what i'm looking for quarter to six it's already starting to look pretty cool right next up we'll go back go tap on widget smith one more time and tap on small add widget and there

You go you've got your most recent widget in there as well now you can do this a couple times like when you tap on one you can go back to your widgets and and see all of these there's even a super large size it takes up like three or four rows of app icons so you go here you do it and then once you've got like a couple pre-made ones you can just go back hit the plus again and add something else so now i've got my previous ones that i made as well add a small widget you just want to tap and hold on it tap

On edit and then go to like small number one and right there you've got whatever you want this is the first part this is the fun part like basically finding the images you want or customizing the actual widgets messing around with the medium stuff you've got all these different things you can do most of which is actually free i got my wallpaper by literally just searching aesthetic wallpapers tapping on view images and i found like one like this

It's pretty cool to me listen i don't know if this can be my vibe forever but it's my vibe today but for me the part that makes it the most special it's like the wallpaper is nice yeah the widgets add a lot of personality here it's the custom app icons and i i promise you this is the hardest part it's also the most worth it so with the widgets set up with images that we've gotten and the wallpaper in the background we're two thirds away there but the most challenging patience required part but

Also the most satisfying is the custom app icon so instead of looking at apple's app icons which i mean admittedly are okay you can make it look however you want and for my setup i had the idea to do these color gradients like this because i think they fit with this wallpaper really well so what you can do is just head over the internet insert aesthetic images or i think i searched like aesthetic gradients that'll probably pop up something just like this so you can save these

They're super subtle or make any images just have as many images for as many apps as you want to customize so now you want to find this app on your phone called shortcuts it's free it's on the app store if it's not on your phone already but it should be pre-installed and when you tap on it you might see something totally different than me that's okay you don't need to worry about what's on the screen just tap on the plus icon and then tap on add action right here go to scripting

And then open app and what you're essentially doing is like creating a piece of code for your device to run to open what you want with your custom image so i'm gonna keep it simple and uh open up the cache app right that's something that we all use from time to time so then you tap on these three dots and this is where it gets cool because you can tap on add to home screen and this is how you name it so i'll just name it cache to keep it simple and then you tap on that icon right

There and this is where you can choose literally any image on your phone so i'm going to hit choose photo and you can see i've got all this stuff right here for cache app uh i don't know there's some green in it so i'm gonna use this one you tap on choose it automatically formats it you can see it's looking pretty cool already and then you just tap on add done uh and then you have to hit next you have to like name the shortcut to completely save it but then you're ready to go so now watch when you go back to your home screen

There's your new app on there and you can just obviously tap and hold as always to drag it and that's how you do it so you got to go through that process for every single app which again is shortcuts plus add action scripting open up choose the app and then tap on the three dots add to home screen yeah i know it's like there has to be an easier way right no there's not right now perhaps there's some speculation in the future apple

Would make it simple but that's how you do it so that's how i got my aesthetics set up i just made a ton of app icons saved a ton of gradients and found some cool quotes and also used widget smith again link is down below so that's the aesthetic theme and what's cool about the custom icons is that they all work if i tap on mail it takes me over to mail if i go to clock it takes me over the clock but you can see my icons look a little bit different now that's because i invested some some minutes uh

Probably close to like an hour or two customizing all of these icons so i've collected these ios 6 ones for you i'll leave a link down below i found all of these images and went through step by step in shortcuts to do the exact same thing as the aesthetic theme here yes tap plus add action scripting open up choose and then choose the icon so we know that process now but what's amazing is that it's fully functional so twitter takes me to twitter snapchat takes me a snapchat

I mean for all intents and purposes like this is uh basically what android has had forever custom theming of your apps and now you have that live of course as you go to your other pages like it starts to look a little bit more normal but the fact that you can get like a proper home screen page now that looks however you want is insane it literally just comes down to are you comfortable sitting still for a while and doing the same process for every single app

Again i hope it gets easier in the future but this is the best and only and fastest way to do it right now if you're looking for something a little bit more user-friendly a little bit more practical arguably then you can keep your icon to not mess with those at all and obviously just do something simple in ios 14 like this where i don't have any widget smith on here i could if i wanted to but i've just got calendar on top left and weather on the right and then you've got all your other widgets over here if you want to use them now listen this

Took me about 30 seconds to set up so it's a start is it as cool as impressive as the other themes no but you can still play around with widgets however you want like it's fun it's easy it's simple and the coolest part about ios 14. i have a thank you to apple for for finally doing this is that you can customize it to your liking for the first time ever you're not wrapped up in apple's constraints they don't stop you from doing what you want like if you have the

Time if you want to customize every app icon you can do that or like the simplicity of ios as we've always had it you can just have a couple of widgets like so and and use them and find out the weather find out what's on your calendar so i hope this video helped you out i hope you guys enjoyed it and again links to everything are down below drop a like if you did hit subscribe for more and i'll catch all of you in the next one and uh this is your your favorite vsco boy
