Customize the iPhone: Here's how!

The Apple iPhone and many other smartphones always have a similar look: a more or less rounded cuboid with a display on the front and camera (s) on the back. You can quickly mix up the devices in the group, accidentally swap them around at work or otherwise incorrectly assign them. Optical customization helps against this. This can be implemented both on the software side on the display and with hardware adjustments. Whether in social situations or simply for your personal taste in everyday life: There are numerous ways to adapt the iPhone to your ideas.

Customize your Apple iPhone: customize the lock and home screens

With the last iOS versions 12, 13 and 14, Apple has repeatedly introduced new options for iPhone users to individually design the display. In addition to the dark mode, there are z. B. different sized app widgets are available. You can also set up different background images for the lock and home screens. You can even use Siri shortcuts to change app icons so that you can assign individual images to the individual apps on your home screen. I have always wanted to write instructions for this; keep your eyes open, at some point it will come! : D Oh yes: Of course you can also adjust the font size and thickness.

The dark mode and other adjustments for the brightness, for night shift and true tone are just small screws that you can turn for an individual display design of your iPhone.

Engraving Apple devices: advantages and disadvantages of the offer

Apple dedicates one to the subjects of "engraving and gift wrapping" own shop page. On it you can already see a few examples of devices with engraving: iPod touch, iPad, Apple Pencil, AirPods charging case and AirTag. The iPhone is not one of the devices that you can order from the manufacturer with an engraving. While that would be an advantage for permanent customization, I personally find an engraved name or a personal message not so practical. Because none of the devices will be used for a lifetime, and an engraving will of course reduce the resale value. A counter-argument would be that a quicker assignment is possible in the event of theft. What do you think of the engraving as an individualization?

The advantages of engraving the housing of technical devices are individualization and clear assignment in the event of theft. The disadvantage is the lower resale value.

Use a fancy or custom iPhone case

Covers, cases and smartphone pockets are not permanent, but can be changed at any time and the iPhone is also protective. There are quite a few of them, but even the most unusual cases that you can find on Amazon and Co. are not made just once. So if you choose a fancy pattern or a seemingly unique motif, the chances are that you will meet someone else who has the same smartphone case. Unless, of course, you design them completely yourself. In addition to other smartphones and devices, providers such as DeinDesign also have cases for the iPhone in their range - such as the custom iPhone XR case.

Various providers of cell phone cases also have the option of customizing sleeves, cases and bags in their range.

Same case, different look: use pictures and photos

Another cover idea is cheaper and suitable for quick adjustments: Use a simple, transparent TPU or silicone cover and clip pictures you have painted yourself, a beautiful photo or other things on paper between this and the iPhone. The photo of your loved ones, a photo souvenir from your last vacation, your most beautiful sketch and much more can be found behind the transparent iPhone case. If you want it a little more robust and still individual, then take a look at our article on the RhinoShield cases for iPhone XS, (Max), XR and X. There is also a transparent case that you can customize with elements behind it.

A vacation photo, a portrait of a loved one, a drawing or something else that is thin enough can be clamped between a transparent cover and the iPhone.
