How to change application cones on the iPhone (iOS) | Customization

The iPhone (iOS) does not allow you to change application cones natively, but a trick with the Shortcuts app makes it possible to use any image to personalize buttons. The procedure generates a shortcut to the desired program, which can be WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook or even system apps. During setup, it is possible to use an image from the gallery as an icon, being able to choose between personal photos, memes, personalized icons or any other file of the camera roll. When you tap the new button, the system opens the selected application immediately.
