As it is always the case, jailbreaking your device opens up a ton of customization options and presents flexibility. However, there are still a lot of customizations you could do to the stock iOS. Despite the updates and patches that come with each new version of iOS, you would still get steps to change a few things. Just like the process of changing folder and dock background color to black as explained below, it is clear that people will always find clever ways of personalizing their iPhones and iPads without jailbreaking.
To start with, there is no way to get black colored folders and dock in stock iOS. As such, the ability to change them is an exciting prospect. The user who has come up with this color trick was also in the limelight a few months ago. At that time, he had the steps for having circular folder icons.
Now, let us get down to business. The first step for changing folder and dock background color to black is to download a 1px image from the hack guy’s website. After downloading the image, set it as your home screen wallpaper. This step will change the color of your icons and dock’s background to match that of the image.
At this point, you have noticed the trick’s downside. You will have to live with a single colored gradient or wallpaper. The following steps involved in changing the color worked on iOS 10. Whether the steps will also work on other versions of iOS is subject to testing.
