It was already clear that as a user you will have much more freedom when arranging the home screen in iOS 18. After installing the update, you can decide where you place apps on the screen. Now you are still dependent on the (invisible) grid in which you have to place applications. This is no longer the case with iOS 18, so you don’t have to place apps right below or next to each other. Instead, you choose where you place an app.

More changes for the home screen

According to the usually reliable Apple expert Mark Gurman, iOS 18 allows users to adjust the colors of the apps on the home screen. Now you have little choice, you have to make do with the icons that the developers make for the apps. It is possible to adjust the images in a roundabout way, but that is often cumbersome and you need third-party apps for that.

From iOS 18, Apple will introduce the function itself, allowing you to adjust the colors of the icons as standard on the iPhone. This makes it possible to turn all social media apps blue and all streaming services red. It is still unclear whether you can only adjust the color or choose a new icon for each app. In any case, iOS 18 will bring major changes to the iPhone’s home screen.
