Gorman: iOS 18 will allow users to recolor app icons and place them anywhere

Apple’s iOS 18 update will introduce new features to further customize your iPhone’s home screen, according to The Verge Bloomberg‘s Mark Gorman.


In his last edition “Run” newsletter., Gorman claimed that Apple will allow users to change the color of app icons in ‌iOS 18‌. For example, “You can make all your social icons blue or your finance-related icons green.” This type of home screen customization is currently only possible by creating single action shortcuts with a custom icon that launches the app.

Gorman also confirmed previous reports that ‌iOS 18‌ will allow users to place apps anywhere on the home screen grid. This will enable users to arrange icons more freely, similar to how widgets can be placed currently.

iOS 18‌ is expected to be previewed alongside Apple’s other major software updates at WWDC in June, before officially launching to the public in the fall.
