Installing Your iPhone Icons

First off, you have to start off with the basics. iPhone icons arrive in two sizes, one of which you see most; the home screen icons are generally 59×59 pixels, whereas some icons can also be seen in 29×29 for list size; an example of the list sized icons can be seen within the iPhone’s settings area.

Now, how do you replace the icons on your iPhone? The icons for each application on the home screen can be found in the bundles, which you can easily find on your iPhone’s /Applications folder. For example, for changing the Weather app icon, you have to place your new icon (that should be named as icon.png) in /Applications/ You will have to overwrite the existing icon.png file with the new one.

And there you have it! That’s how you can install an icon on your iPhone.

Customizing your iPhone can be a fun way to put technology to an inspiring use. Let your iPhone reflect whatever you’d like it to and which icon set did you like the best?

    Very nice set of alternative icons. I personally am fine with the standard look but if I had to choose one, I would say that Sleek Icon set looks great.

    So you can't update/change the default apps (calendar, calc, etc.)? They aren't in that folder with everything else..

      Possibly not. Keep searching through a few folders to see if you can find them :)

      Thank you all for your posts!

        ...Yeah, right. You don't have look these icons in ther sites, right?

        Spiffy Icon Pack, Sleek Icons, Web 2 Icons, IPhoneStyle Dock, Aquaticus Socia is not maded for iPhone, these are maded for Windows, Mac (for docks and into desktop) and for websites as webicons.

        So you fail.
