How to Use Focus Mode to Make Your iPhone’s Status Bar Sophisticated
Personalization has always been a strong point of Android smartphones. iPhone users, on the other hand, have had to deal with limitations imposed by Apple on its operating system. However, in recent years, Apple has made efforts to give users the ability and some control to match their iPhone to style or mood. The arrival of widgets was a big change for the company, allowing the house to be more than just icons. Recently, we are also seeing the rise of trends where users are using Apple’s new focus mode to put an icon of their choice in their status bar.
One of the great features of Focus Mode is the ability to set a specific icon to identify when a specific mode is active. Sometimes it can be complicated for ordinary users to set up a Focus mode, but if you just want to have a special icon on the status bar, the process is quite simple.
To get a particular icon in your status bar, you need to make sure you’re running iOS 15 on your iPhone or iPadOS 15 on your iPad. You can choose from over 25 icons, including fun icons like a smiley face, a fire symbol, a light bulb, and a paw print. So if you want to join this new trend, get ready to Check the following steps:
How to Set a Specific Icon on Your iPhone/iPad Status Bar
- Launch Settings app
- Scroll down and tap To concentrate
- Press the + at the top right
- Faucet Custom
- Select your icon of choice
- Name your goal
- Choose who can send you notifications (you can easily select all contacts)
- Enable all apps to show you notifications (this respects your custom notification settings)
- Faucet Do
- Tap the switch to activate Focus mode
After following the above steps, you will have successfully set a special icon on your status bar. This trend has grown exponentially in the circles of iPhone users. Of course, that wasn’t the exact reason behind Apple’s “mind” when developing this feature. However, it clearly shows how desperately iPhone/iPad users need more ways to personalize their smartphones and make them unique.
iOS 15 was released in September shortly after the release of the iPhone 13 series. The update came with bugs and Apple recently rolled out iOS 15.1 to address these issues. Despite this, many advertised features are still missing from the software.
