Whenever someone things about doing customizations in their iPhone, the first thing that strikes is Jailbreaking. There is no doubt that jailbreaking your phone means the number of options available is substantially higher. But not jailbreaking and still customizing your iPhone is a no bad deal.
Hiding the App icons
- Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion and tap on it.
- From Accessibility, increase the contrast and turn on darker colors.
- Now, open the control center and swipe it up enough that it is at the center of your screen. Do not take your fingers off the screen.
- Double-tap on the Home Button to open the App Switcher.
- Now, you will notice that app icons in the dock are not visible anymore.
- You can do the same for more apps by putting them in the dock.
PS: It is a kind of a bug in iOS 10. Let’s hope it gets patched soon.
Hiding the Status Bar
Like the previous section, this is also done by exploiting a glitch in iOS 10. Please note that status bar will appear once you use any application.
- Double-tap on the home button to open App Switcher.
- Press & Hold the Sleep button till you see “Slide to Power Off”.
- Now, double-tap on the Home Button again and you will notice that Status Bar has disappeared.
Hiding the Dock & Folder Blurs
- Download this wallpaper on your phone.
- Set this as your Home Screen Wallpaper.
- Go to your Home Screen now. You will see that dock and folders don’t have a blurred background anymore.
