Changing the Time Color on iPhone

If you’re tired of the default time color on your iPhone and want to add a personal touch, you’ll be glad to know that there are ways to customize it. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of changing the time color on your iPhone, step by step.

Step 1: Jailbreak Your iPhone

To start with, you will need to jailbreak your iPhone. Jailbreaking allows you to access the file system and make changes that are otherwise restricted by Apple.

Keep in mind that jailbreaking may void your device’s warranty and can have potential security risks. Proceed with caution and at your own risk.

Step 2: Install a Theme Manager

Once your iPhone is jailbroken, head over to Cydia (the unofficial app store for jailbroken devices) and search for a theme manager. There are several options available, such as Winterboard or Anemone. Install the theme manager of your choice.

Step 3: Download a Time Color Theme

After installing the theme manager, search for a time color theme that suits your preferences. These themes are usually available in repositories specific to each theme manager. Once you find one that catches your eye, download and install it.


Make sure the theme you choose is compatible with the version of iOS running on your device. Installing incompatible themes can cause issues and may require restoring your device.

Step 4: Apply the Time Color Theme

Once you have downloaded and installed a time color theme, open the theme manager app on your iPhone. Browse through the available themes until you find the one you just installed for changing the time color.

Select the theme and apply it. Depending on the theme manager you are using, you may need to respring or restart your device for the changes to take effect.

Step 5: Customize Further (Optional)

If you want to further customize the appearance of the time, some themes offer additional settings. Look for options within the theme manager that allow you to adjust the size, font, or style of the time display.


Not all themes provide these customization options. If you can’t find any settings, it means the theme does not support further customization.

Step 6: Enjoy Your Customized Time Color

That’s it! You have successfully changed the time color on your iPhone. Now, every time you glance at your device, you’ll be greeted with a unique and personalized time display.


If at any point you want to revert to the default time color or switch to another theme, simply open the theme manager app and select a different theme or disable the current one.

Remember that jailbreaking your iPhone and customizing its appearance comes with potential risks. It is crucial to exercise caution and take necessary precautions while making changes to your device’s system files.

With that said, have fun exploring different themes and personalizing your iPhone’s time color!
