Want to turn your iPhone 12 into an iPhone 5? If yes, then we have the perfect tutorial that will let you have the classic iOS 6 look on iOS 14.
For years I had missed the iPhone 5 design, and when I came to know that Apple’s new iPhone 12 lineup will feature a similar design I was thrilled. Now that I have got my hands on an iPhone 12 Pro Max and absolutely love the straight edges, the first thing that I wanted to do on this new device was to get the same look and feel of my iPhone 5 from back in 2012.
Thankfully achieving an iPhone 5 look on iPhone 12 is very easy thanks to iOS 14’s custom icon feature. For this I downloaded the free moloko app, which is a theme app available through the App Store. Until iOS 13 achieving this look on stock iOS would have been unthinkable and users would have to jailbreak there device, however not anymore.
After setting up iOS 6’s icons on the home screen with the moloko app I downloaded the classic iOS 6 wallpaper to complete the new look of my device. And the result was as amazing as I had expected.
You can find the complete tutorial on how to get iPhone 5 look on iPhone 12 after the photos.
