As we have said many times before, Android is all about customization. We usually change themes, create our own Live Wallpapers and add our own touch to the OS. Those changes, however, get old pretty fast and so the desire for changes and customization, never stops.
Today we are gonna show you, how to do something completely different with your device and make its OS look and feel like an iOS. Blasphemy? Maybe, but I bet some of these features will be interesting even for the most hardcore Android fans. Let’s say that afterwards, your phone may look similar to this. (Spoiler: It is not an iPhone.)
Removing the App Drawer
One of the most distinct differences between Android and iOS is the existence (or not) of the app drawer. The lack of the app drawer makes a device easier to use and, because of that, this might be a useful feature for people with visual difficulties, or senior Android users.
The most simple way to remove the app drawer is to download a third party launcher, that has no app drawer whatsoever. The best apps with this functionality, are (in my opinion) ZenUI and iLauncher. You will find links for both of these apps below.
After you download your preferred application, tap on the home button and choose your new launcher as the default. If you download ZenUI, you will have to choose the one layer option for the home screen, in order for it to remove the drawer.
Changing the Icons
In case you downloaded the iLauncher, you can easily skip this step. For those of you that download ZenUI however, things won’t be so simple. First of all, tap anywhere on the home screen and hold. Afterwards, choose the option “Home Edit” and change the icon size to 130%.
If you don’t mind the default icons, you can stop there. However, for those of you that want something closer to the iPhone experience, keep reading. Fortunately, ZenUI offers a native icon pack and theme downloader, so choose that and download the icons that you like. An icon pack that somewhat resembles the simplicity of the iOS is called “Simple Color”.
Adding iPhone’s Quick Toggles
This is probably, my favorite iPhone feature. Swiping up in order to use the quick toggle menu is quite convenient, especially if you have a 5-inch screen. Fortunately, there is a way to bring that feature to Android and it requires no root.
To do that, follow this link and download Android Control Center straight from the XDA Developer’s site, or simply download Quick Control Panel from the Play Store. It’s the same application. See Link Below.
Note that you can customize the toggles and general info that this app displays.
Downloading iOS Wallpapers
Everyone knows how to simply change a wallpaper on an Android device. However, not everyone can find stock iPhone 7/7+ wallpapers. Rakesh did, so follow this link in order to find out how to download those beautiful wallpapers.
Those are all the tools that you need for an extreme Android (to iPhone) makeover. Keep in mind that you can selectively use some or one of the tricks provided (like Quick Control Panel). It’s all up to you, so have fun!
