Best iOS 7 jailbreak themes for iPhone: Ayecon

Ayecon, pronounced icon, is a beautifully done theme that's available not only for iPhone, but iPad as well. It comes with over 100 custom icons as well as a mask to make all others mesh well. Ayecon focuses on adding depth back to iOS but does so in a way that creates a happy medium between the great parts of iOS 7 and those that could be improved on. There are also elements for the Messages app, status bar icons, and more.

If you don't mind iOS 7 but find yourself missing some of the depth previous iterations of iOS offered, you want Ayecon.

Best iOS 7 jailbreak themes for iPhone: Ayeris

Ayeris, pronounced iris, is a theme by the same creator as Ayecon. Ayeris focuses on the flat aspects of iOS 7 instead of bringing depth and texture back. It's meant more for those that quite like iOS 7 but think the icons could use some work. Ayeris comes complete with a new dock, tweaks throughout the entire system including Mail, Settings, and more, and most obvious, a completely new icon set.

If you like iOS 7 and want something that pays even more attention to detail, try out Ayeris.

Best iOS 7 jailbreak themes for iPhone: Zanilla

Zanilla is another flat theme for iOS 7 that doesn't change the aesthetic but aims to enhance it and make it better. Aside from adding a nice icon mask, Zanilla comes with several custom icons. The shadows and design are done quite nicely and add a more sophisticated look to iOS 7. Zanilla also extends to the Settings panel, includes a Lock screen slider, and has a PSD template for creating your own icons if you wish.

If you like iOS 7 but wouldn't mind a slight change to kick it up a notch, Zanilla gets the job done.


Best iOS 7 jailbreak themes for iPhone: Flat7

Flat7 is one of my personal favorites when it comes to theming in iOS 7. Not only does it feature flat icons that are squares with rounded edges — what iOS 7 comes with stock — Flat7 also offers a circular icon option that's not only different, but gorgeous. And if you really want to be different, you can choose a hexagonal mask that adds an all new flair to your iPhone.

For a more customized experience that still manages to stay clean and elegant, Flat7 is one of the best.

Best iOS 7 jailbreak themes for iPhone: iRa

iRa is a minimalistic theme for iOS 7 that comes complete with over 100 customized icons. It's bold and more colorful than most stock icons that come with iOS. Since most of iOS 7 is already flat, many stock icons fit in nicely even if iRa doesn't have a new icon to go with it. The Messages app and status bar are also customizable via iRa. If you fire up the Settings app and head into wallpapers, you'll also notice several new wallpapers that go nicely with iRa as well.

If you like iOS 7 but desire it to be completely flat, check out iRa.

UltraFlat for iOS 7

Best iOS 7 jailbreak themes for iPhone: UltraFlat for iOS 7

UltraFlat for iOS 7 is one of the flattest themes you could possibly ask for. I actually prefer some of UltraFlat's icon designs over Apple's own, especially the Reminders app icon. It's also one of the simplest consider you can just tap one setting in Winterboard and be done. Nothing else to fiddle with or customize, unless of course you want to on your own. Since UltraFlat for iOS 7 doesn't change any icon dimensions, icons that haven't been customized actually blend in quite nicely.

If you want as flat as flat can get, download UltraFlat for iOS 7 right now.

  • Flat7 and Aura are gorgeous. Posted from my TARDIS!
  • Flat7 looks hot goes perfect with iOS7
  • No Elite 7, No Loop, No Patience? All the ones in this article look like the same theme. Poor article. Do better research. Sent from the iMore App
  • I can't include every theme or that diminishes the value of a best of article. Of course these are my opinions. I did research, used them all, and ruled out anything that crashed or didn't blend well with iOS 7. Hence the title being themes for iOS 7. Obviously they're going to have similar aesthetic. Do better title reading?
  • Someone recommended Elite 7. Meh. Not liking the Elite 7 icons. To each their own but it seems overdone to me. Really really liking Flat 7 Theme though. Sent from the iMore App
  • I looked at Elite 7 and chose not to add it because I don't care for the icons either. I also do not like some of the fonts used at all. They are bordering comic sans style. :0 Sent from the iMore App
  • No mention of elite 7? By far the best theme for iOS 7..
  • Ah crap. I had that on my list and it got overlooked. I'll add it in, thanks!
  • Changed my mind after actually installing it. I don't like it the icons or fonts at all. Sent from the iMore App
  • Those cirlcle icons in flat 7 look nice. If only apple made their icons like this instead of the square look. Sent from the iMore App
  • I thought they would by now. Especially with the circles everywhere else., contact pictures, even the holes in the 5C cases!
  • Any idea if 7.1.1 is jb yet? I don't really know where to look anymore. Every google search results in suspicious looking sights.
  • I wish, but they are gonna wait until iOS 8 probably due to not releasing the exploits so it will be a faster and easier jailbreak with iOS 8. I had the same problem, as my device got into a bootloop; had to restore and force updated. I sort of like 7.1.1 though, it's animation speed kind of makes up for my NoSlowAnimations. I did also have the Ultraflat, it's a pretty nice theme, and it's in the making of 2.0 right now by its owner.
  • Yup, it just came out the other day.
  • I would like to learn how to jb my iPhone 5s.
  • @Ally In my extremely humble opinion I believe Solstice should have topped your list. I'm confident in saying if you try it (If you already havent) you will see why it definitely has a place in your article above. If nothinng else could you let me know your thoughts on it in a quick reply?
  • I'll take a look! Obviously best of posts are opinion. Everyone has different taste. I'm always willing to add to things but at the end of the day, I am never going to please everyone.
  • Hi Allyson, I would like to second Daytona's comment regarding Solstice! I prefer it hugely to all other themes I have tried, some of which you have listed. Furthermore I would like to point out that not only Solstice HD for iPad is amazing too, but also that Google seems to think the same way! Purported reports and screenshots about Android 4.5 are pointing that way - there is a screenshot of an icon overview (sadly I am not allowed to share the link - saw it just now on after searching for android 4.5 lollipop) and all you need to do is compare the proposed icons for android with the Solstice icons.
    Now it might be up to debate if being compared to Google is a good thing or not ;-) however I believe there are a lot of really good reasons to include Solstice in this overview! Thanks & best regards from Germany, Patrick
  • Allyson, is there a jailbreak theme that brings back the iOS 6 look? I mean keyboard, maybe icons, and remove some of the white to the various apps.
  • This.
  • Elite 7 does look like it has lots of customization.
  • Derrick, we tend to agree on the look of iOS 7 vs 6. Did Elite 7 allow you to get to where you wanted with the look of iOS 7? Edit: I'm thinking of giving Ayecon a try because of the look.
  • Flat7. Nice!
  • LMFAO. you guys are so sensitive. Someone says something you don't like and you delete it. Pull your big boy pants up FFS. My post had mention of themes in them that should be on this list. Isn't that what the replays are for.
  • They like to delete comments that go against what their article states. I still stand by my comments. Elite 7, Patience and Loop FTW! But if you're into looking like your phone isn't even jailbroken, then leave it stock or try one of the "Best Themes for iPhone". Sent from the iMore App
  • Odd, I have never had a post deleted. I thought they only deleted posts that were attacks or rife with foul language?!? I have seen Rene field some serious constructive criticism, but it was just that, constructive.
  • Your comment is still there. Sent from the iMore App
  • Comments never get deleted unless they are attacking someone else. I did not delete any comments on this post. Sent from the iMore App
  • Themes Luminous- keep your eye out for this guys next one
    Elite7 And keep in mind. If it's free, it isn't worth even looking at.
  • I've tried a few now and eventually found the one that has stayed on my iphone and I love it to bits... Kage7 Just fits iOS7 perfectly for me... before that I hated the flat look which had been poorly done by Apple IMO and I had gone back to an iOS 6 theme until I found a better flat design. Kage 7 looks fantastic.
  • Thanks Allyson. I just downloaded Flat 7 Theme and I love it. Almost makes me feel like I have a new OS again. Sent from the iMore App
  • Installed Flat7, my favorite so far!
  • How did you get that wallpaper that is shown with flat7 at the top and with zanilla?
