After updating to iOS 15, I started getting location, mic, or other icons on the status bar of the iPhone. It’s fine. Sometimes, it annoys me to see the white arrow icon on the top whenever I use any location-based app. Therefore, I decided to customize the status bar on iPhone.

If you want to remove the location icon from the top and replace it with heart, frozen, or dog feet, we will show you how to change the status bar icon on iPhone’s top screen in iOS 15. Without further ado, let’s check out these steps to customize the status bar on iPhone.
