iOS 14 has been the biggest iPhone software update in years but just how can Apple fans create a red-themed aesthetic? You’ll need red logos for Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Spotify and TikTok!
It’s always an exciting time when a new iOS update is released for iPhones as fans can’t wait to test out all the new features.
In 2020, iOS 14 is set to give the iPhone’s software its biggest shakeup in years as it adds an array of features both large and small.
One of the biggest new features to arrive as part of iOS 14 is the ability to add widgets which not only lets the user see information without having to open the app itself, it also gives iPhone fans the ability to customise their home screen like never before.
This can be done through the creation of custom-made aesthetics and images of iPhone user’s new home screen designs have flooded social media.
But what if you want to make a red-themed aesthetic and need red logos for Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok? We’ve got you covered.

Create an aesthetic with iOS 14
The addition of widgets to iPhones with iOS 14 has driven Apple fans wild with the excitement of near-endless possibilities for customisation.
Since the software launched on September 16th, images of custom-made home pages, all with different colour palettes and aesthetics, have flooded social media.
From brightly coloured backgrounds to pastel-pink app shortcuts, we’re seeing a much more varied look to Apple’s latest iOS software.
Tutorial: How to create a custom aesthetic
Designing your own iPhone home screen aesthetic couldn’t be easier with iOS 14.
- Pick a theme – Whether you want to go for a bright neon colour scheme or an arts and crafts theme, you can’t go wrong.
- Find images – The first thing you’ll want to do once a theme has been decided on is to find a collection of images that you want to use whether that’s for your lock screen image or app shortcut images.
Images for app shortcuts will need to be set to a square shape. This can be done on the Photos app on your iPhone or a similar photo-editing app.
- Reorganise – To make space for your re-design, you’ll have to move all of your old apps out of the way (possibly into the last page on your home screen or into files), but be sure to just move them rather than delete them as app shortcuts still need the original app to work.
- Assemble – The next step is to put your new aesthetic together and this is where you take charge to create the design you want.
Using the Shortcuts and Widgetsmith apps, you can create custom logos and widgets for apps that fit your aesthetic.
A tutorial in video form from Kaice Alea on YouTube can be found below.
Apps you’ll need:
Over (photo-editing – can also work with iPhone’s Photos app), Shortcuts (creating custom app logos), Widgetsmith or Colour Widget (creating custom widgets).
How to find red social media logos
If you’re hoping to make a red-themed aesthetic on iOS 14, for example, you’ll no doubt be wanting to find red logos for the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Spotify and TikTok.
The best way of doing this is to head over to the search engine of your choice and look for images that fit your criteria.
For example, if you’re looking to find a red Facebook logo, simply search for ‘red facebook logo’ images and look for examples that match the style you’re looking for.
It is worth noting, however, that images in search engines are often protected by copyright laws so actually using images you find may well be prohibited unless they’re free to use as Creative Commons Images.

The Apple App Store….a platform that houses some of the world’s greatest and most innovative apps, all in the palm of your hand. Truth be told, at Spotify, we are big fans of Apple. You will find their hardware across our offices, in the hands of thousands of our employees. We also love having the opportunity to be on a platform where we can offer our services to millions of our fans around the world. But Apple makes it harder and harder for companies like Spotify to bring the best we have to offer to our fans — all for the sake of tilting the field to favor its own services and disadvantaging those it is playing against. Here are five fast facts that show Apple doesn’t play fair:
Apple Charges a Discriminatory Tax:
Apple requires that certain apps pay a 30% fee for use of their in-app purchase system (IAP). However, the reality is that the rules are not applied evenly across the board. Does Uber pay it? No. Deliveroo? No. Does Apple Music pay it? No. Apple does not compete with Uber and Deliveroo. But in music streaming Apple gives the advantage to its own services.

Apple Won’t Let Us Share Spotify Deals We Know You’d Love:
If we choose not to use IAP (the only payment option on iOS), Apple, in return, bars us from communicating directly with our customers who access Spotify via Apple platforms.
Apple won’t let us share awesome deals and promotions – like 99¢ for three months of Spotify Premium. And we aren’t just talking about what we are allowed to do on the app. Worse yet, they often block us from emailing after you register your account, claiming we are circumventing their rules.
Apple Doesn’t Allow You to Upgrade to Spotify Premium With Ease:
If users want to upgrade from our Free service to Premium, great, we’d love to have them! But Apple bars us from offering that option in our app, instead, forcing users to take multiple steps of going to a browser or desktop. Some of our users don’t even have a desktop. And to top it off, we can’t even tell them that or point them in the right direction. You have to figure it out all on your own.
Apple Rejects Our App Enhancements:
We love making improvements and introducing new features to Spotify. But where Apple thinks that our app doesn’t abide by their unilaterally imposed restrictions, it routinely rejects bug fixes and app enhancements that would improve user experience and the app’s functionality – leading fans to believe our app and tech abilities are sub par. Nothing could be further from the truth. And of course Apple never puts any obstacles in front of its own Apple Music app.
Apple Won’t Let You Access Spotify on All Your Devices:
We are all about ubiquity (being there for you wherever and whenever you want). And Spotify is lucky to be available for fans around the world on nearly every other speaker – except for Apple’s.
After years of unavailability, Apple has finally let us connect with Siri to play your jams…but if you fail to mention our name (“I want to play [X] on Spotify”), your Apple device will default to Apple Music. So while this type of integration is a much needed step forward in enabling access for Spotify’s users around the world, true parity is still far from being achieved and Spotify continues to be actively disadvantaged by Apple.
