Steps to Rename Apps on iPhone

Unfortunately it is not possible to do this if yours iPhone doesn't have Cydia and to have Cydia you need to do a Jailbreak. In case your mobile has been rooted, we will leave you the steps to do it.


We recommend that you do not root if you are unsure how to do so as you may lose your mobile phone completely, so we recommend that you ask for help or take it to a technician who has more knowledge of it.

Step 1

Open Cydia or the installer you downloaded on your mobile. Then open the section "Utility" and install the application called "Rename".

Step 2

When the application opens, locate the App you want rename and press on, a window will appear in which the new application name must be entered.


3 pass

After changing the name, press the option "Rename" and therefore upon exiting the application, the name of the App will have been changed.

Although the customization options are limited, thanks to applications like the ones mentioned above, it is possible to make our iPhones a little more original.
