First, we need a jailbroken Apple device: Find out if and how you can jailbreak your iPhone by clicking  here. Once the unlocking operation has been performed, the next step is to open Cydia (the program that is installed with the jailbreak) and then perform all the updates initially proposed. Once this is done, Cydia will be updated as well as the package sources contained within it.

At this point, therefore, we use the search function to find the package called ” UIColors “. This is a paid tweak ($ ​​1.99) that will allow you to change the color of apps and texts on the iPhone. Then press on its name, then on “Install” and finally on “Confirm”. The installation procedure will start – lasting a few seconds – at the end of which our iPhone will restart. At this point we will be able to change the color of the iOS 7 screens.

To change the color of the apps and texts on your iPhone, just open the Settings app, go to UIColors, and then start customizing the device.The first item, “Blacklist Applications”, allows us to exclude those applications whose color we don’t want to change at the start: if you have particular apps that you don’t want to involve in the change, activate them from this screen.

Set Primary Color” and “Set Secondary Color” allow, respectively, to choose the primary color and the secondary color of iOS 7: the primary color is the one that will replace the white in the application screens; the secondary one, on the other hand, is the one that will replace the green (used, for example, in the on / off buttons of the settings).

In both cases, the user can choose the color using a “pie” of colors and then acting on values ​​such as the saturation and brightness of the color itself. Finally, the “Set Text Color” item is the one that allows you to choose – again – the color of the system texts.

At the bottom of the UIColors settings we find the buttons to activate / deactivate the tweak and to choose whether to apply the changes also to the Home or only to the applications; further down, finally, we have the “Respring & Apply Changes” button that allows you to perform a quick restart of the iPhone to make the changes effective.
