At WWDC 2024, Apple unveiled a new era of AI. But the company announced other significant changes, too — like new design options for iOS 18.

Amongst these is the ability to personalize more specifically, giving iPhone users the chance to decide how they want their home screen to appear. This means everything from a new dark mode ("Dark Look") and the option to customize each app with different colors.

If you're looking to color code each tile, here's how to do it. First make sure your Apple device is backed up. To get the software update, iOS 18 is now available for download in developer beta. The update is compatible with a slew of iPhones, all the way back to iPhone 11.
