    I've just updated my iPhone to 7 and although a few things are definitely an improvement, the apple apps look as if they've been designed by a 5 year old... and I hate orange! :eek:
    Is it possible to change the default apple icons.. ?

    Cheers, John

    It is not possible to change the icons.

    From personal experience, however, I can say they may grow on you.

    Nope, just hide the apps in a folder. Replace the apps with something in the app store, and hope for a jailbreak.

    The Voice Memo icon has got to go. That's the only one I would say is truly beyond all glimmers of hopes of redemption. It's just terrible.

    No way, reminders, settings, notes are much worse.

    Oh yeah the settings icon, what a travesty. How dare they replace metallic gears with, umm, metallic gears.

    Just get rid of the border and it would be perfect.

    No you can't change the icons. The guy who designed those "horrible" icons has a 15 million dollar mansion. Apparently the people paying him don't think it's horrible.

    Its kinda offensive to say that since you obviously know nothing about design compared to the team at Apple who have spent years looking at different designs and ideas who clearly know a lot more about what looks good than you.

    The iOS 7 icons were designed by the print and marketing team apparently. Still, it was Ives who approved them, so I'm still blaming him.

    iOS 7 icons look good to me. The colour and flat appearance is much more to my style.

    However I never complained about icons in old iOS versions instead just getting on and using the actual phone. Sure if people don't like it fine but if this is the biggest issue we are doing fine and really dont need so many threads about this.
