Since Apple hit the market with its iPhones and its Ios system, they have been distinguished by state-of-the-art technology and always being at the forefront of the latest advances in mobile phones.
One of its most outstanding features is that you can customize it according to your personality or taste, making the cell phone one more piece in your look.
The most impressive one is the ability to change the color of your iPhone’s battery. Didn’t you know you could? Well yes, and there is not only one but several ways to change the color of the battery indicator.
In this article, we will show you the different ways to achieve it, so that you can choose which one is best for you practically and simply.
Changing the color of your battery icon with no apps
This is the only way you can change the color of your iPhone battery without tweaks or installing any kind of app or jailbreaking your smartphone.
The first thing you should do is go to the device’s settings, then tap General/Battery/Activate battery percentage.
When you do this, you will see that the status bar shows how much percentage your battery has left, accompanied by the classic lightning bolt of the iPhone battery icon.
After following these instructions, the only thing left for you to do is turn on the low-power mode with the switch on your cell phone. Then, you will immediately see how the battery symbol will turn to a yellow battery icon. That´s it! This is the fastest way to change the color of the battery icon on your cell phone.
2. White or Black
You can also change the battery icon to white or black. But this depends on the appearance of your cell phone screen.
When the screen is in light mode, the battery color will be black. And if you change your phone to dark mode, the battery color will be white. It will not change to any other color unless your battery is fully discharged.
3. Blue or Purple
Another creative way to change the battery color is by using the Classic Invert feature, which inverts the colors on the entire screen. This way you can get the color blue and purple.
However, there are other ways to do the same thing that give you more color options and even shapes, being able to change the battery symbol for many other icons.
But it is important for you to know that all these options cannot be done without having a, jailbroken iPhone. Next, we will explain what it consists of and how to do it.
What is a jailbroken phone?
It is a phone that has been modified to circumvent the limitations and restrictions of the manufacturer. That way you can access without restrictions to applications and internal files of the phone.
There are many ways to jailbreak, but it is usually done through kernel patches. This jailbreaking software gives you full access to the root operating system and functions of your phone.
How to jailbreak a phone?
To jailbreak you need a privilege escalation attack, in order to modify the main components of the iOS system that your iPhone works with.
Although this seems like a task for a hacker, it can be done relatively easily with programs that you can download from the App Store relatively easily.
We are not going to recommend any specific program since it is impossible to guarantee its safety. Jailbreaking is not an illegal action, but there is a possibility of security risks for your phone.
However, you are within your legitimate right to try if you find yourself in the need to unlock the restrictions of the operator or the manufacturer.
Use an app to edit the iPhone battery color
There are many applications with which you can change the color of the iPhone battery. Apps like ColorMyBattery or Battery Color Themes make your task very easy and simple.
ColorMyBattery, for example, works with all versions after iPhone 10. You can easily find it in Cydia, in its free version. But you will also have the option to buy it and access the premium version with many more options to personalize your entire device.
But as for the color change, the app will allow you to change the battery indicator icon every time it goes down 10%. That means you will have 10 different colors to configure. You can choose to go from a green color to the color yellow, orange, purple, red, or any color you can think of.
And if you want more options, you can even set the phone to change colors every 5%. The sky is the limit!
Connect iPhone to a computer
To execute this option you must download a program to share documents between your cell phone and the computer. Flick is one of the best-known apps that make this possible.
Your phone must be previously jailbroken. Connect your phone to your computer via a USB cable and launch the file-sharing program.
Locate the System / Library / CoreServices / SpringBoard.app folders. You will notice that there are several files with different battery colors. Choose a set of files that all have the same color and replace the color of the battery image with each of the colors you want your battery icon to have.
Remember that to do this, you must have a graphic design program. If you don’t have one, there are many free programs online that can help.
Save the new file with the desired color. Remember to save it with the same name as the original file. This will delete and replace the original file with the new file that is being copied to the iPhone.
Disconnect the USB connection to the computer. Remove the USB connector connected to the iPhone. Press the Restart button and it will be ready.
As you may have noticed, there are many ways to change the color of your iPhone battery. You can do it creatively with the tools provided by the phone, or you can venture into using a third-party app for more personalized customization.
Remember that for the apps to work, you must jailbreak your phone. This is not recommended because the security of your phone cannot be guaranteed with these programs, but you are free to try it in exchange for having a unique and personal cell phone.
