Whenever I open Instagram, FaceTime, Twitter, or any apps, I see the blue arrowed location symbol on the top of the iPhone home screen. I know Apple wants to alert the user that the App is using your location. But I don’t want to see that icon every time I use the App.
I guess I am not the only one who would want to change the iPhone symbol on top of the screen. Millions of iPhone users also want to remove the annoying location icon from the top. Thanks to the new Focus Mode on iOS 15 for allowing users to change iPhone’s symbol on the top. Now users can set heart, frozen, shopping, or any other colorful icon on the top of the iPhone screen instead of the location symbol.
