Make Your Own Custom App Icons on iPhone

It has been 2 a year since Apple released iOS 14 with the app icons replacement or changing feature. Since this new feature added, iPhone users have created millions of iOS home screen designs with new app icons. Even I tried many icon packs, but most of them are not free. Hence, I thought it would be good to design my app icons on my iPhone.

Instead of spending money on paid icon packs, iPhone users can make aesthetic iPhone app icons free on iOS 14, iOS 15 or iOS 16 running devices. Once you learn to create custom app icons for iPhone, you will no longer need to search for any paid or free icons. It will be easy for you to have your own app icons on your iPhone home screen. Without wasting much time, let’s check out the process to make to custom app icons.
