Step Five

With the ‘Open App’ shortcut selected, tap ‘choose’, and select the app for which you want to change the icon.

Step Six

Tap the three dots in the top right and select ‘Add to home screen’.

Step Seven

Tape the icon to reveal the menu and select ‘choose photo’.

Step Eight

Choose the icon from your photos.

Step Nine

Finally, choose the name, either use the name of the app you are replacing or leave it blank for a more minimalist look.
