How to Customize Your iPhone Status Bar and Icon Label Colors “iOS & iPhone :: Gadget Hacks

My goal is to personalize my iPhone and make it as different as possible from others. While it’s easy to change the wallpaper, swap keyboards, and hide apps on your home screen, there isn’t much else you can do aesthetically without jailbreaking, especially regarding the status bar and application icons.

If you’re jailbroken and looking to make your springboard a bit more colorful, then SpringResearch from hiroshit can help. This setting will allow you to change the background and foreground colors of the status bar, as well as the font of the app icons on the home screen.

Go ahead and install SpringResearch in Cydia and restart your device.

After installation, SpringResearch will be among your other Cydia applications in your settings. Once you’ve opened SpringResearch in your settings, you’ll see three editable sections along with a toggle to toggle the status bar on or off on the lock screen.

Select a section to change the color and opacity of each using RGBA slides. The first three letters are pretty self-explanatory, and “A” is for opacity. Drag them around until you get the perfect shade, or just drag your finger around the color field to select a color. You can also enter your own HEX color code by selecting the hashtag (#) at the top right.

When you’re satisfied, go back to the tweak’s main menu and restart your device to apply your changes.

(1) Purple for status bar and icon labels. (2) A fully transparent icon label color.

You can continue to mix and match your colors as much as you want; don’t forget to restart your device every time you make a change.
