    Yes, it’s still not possible to make your own themes. I doubt if Apple will ever introduce that.

    I have been with iOS for a very long time and haven’t got bored yet.

    You can download icon packs if you’re ok with hiding the original apps and having a second delay in opening the apps.

    That is one thing that I love about Android, which is the ability to customize just about everything. Though there are drawbacks to that...

    That's one of the selling points of Android. If you feel the need for novelty in your UI, there's really no substitute to switching OS.

    The stable UI is a selling point of Apple's iOS, BTW, for those of us who prefer stability to novelty. YMMV, it's all a matter of preference. Do what you have to do.

    Welcome to iMore. I noticed that you didn't include which device you are currently using in your profile. If you're not already using an Android device may I suggest giving them a try. The Android platform has plenty of themes, and the best customization in the business.

    It doesn’t add to the user experience. It’s a gimmick.
    Too much themes only makes apps and the OS bigger and clunkier. iOS is awesome in managing its RAM resources and the lacking of themes is one of the reasons why.

    As a person that owns both an iPhone 7 and a Google Pixel I must say I love the ability to customize on Android and turn the OS into whatever you want it to look like and that's before rooting. That's one of the reasons I'm between back and forth between both OS. Allowing some customization is not gonna reduce performance like that.

    I have android device but not inserted in my profile and I haven't apple device but my friend have, so I can borrow apple friend and I look it for a while everyday. Then I got bored.

    In my opinion, I don't need a theme because iOS has the best display.

    Yes, but I think you can download an app in App Store that offers theme.

    You cannot apply themes to iOS. Apple does not allow it. There are some that offer custom icons and wallpapers but they’re nothing close to a “theme”.

    Oh how much I wish this were true, but unfortunately there are no themes for iOS in the Apple App Store. Moderator Rob is correct, Apple does not allow themes on iOS.

    Thanks for the reply. Makes sense. Of course it would be nice if Apple simply ADDED enough RAM to make this a non issue but they don't seem to like that idea.

    I'm kind of torn on this. I like customization to some degree, but I hate how you can pick up 3 different Android phones and they all feel foreign (but I guess that is what some people like). That is one of the things I love about Windows Phone. The start screen is immediately recognizable, but can still be customized in respect to color and layout, (and the live tiles are great).

    You get bored because you can't customize? There's plenty to do on an iPhone to keep from getting bored. Many great apps that offer a lot to keep from getting bored. Maybe your friend doesn't have many.

    It’s not about RAM. I have never heard any complaints about the RAM in iPhones, unlike android. With android it somehow never seems enough but that is a different story altogether.

    Adding support to iOS is also asking developers to take that into account, making apps bigger than they already are. And don’t let me start on the size of iOS. It would take considerably more space on iDevices.

    Exactly. Usually people who never tired android or gave it a fair shot always put down customization. All I ask with my iPhone is to be able to arrange icons how ever I want.

    I agree, that even just that would be a nice concession. I don't need icon packs or anything like that (I never used them or other launchers or anything on Android anyway).

    I totally agree. Mainly a "REAL" Dark Theme.

    Exactly. Inverting color has nothing to do with it.

    IF folks really want this feature added to the OS, best bet is to send Apple feedback suggesting it!
