On Monday 10th June, Apple gave us our first view of iOS 7. There is absolutely no doubt that this is the most radical change in iOS firmware since the iPhone first made an appearance in 2007. Unless you are a registered developer you will have to wait until the public release in autumn to be able to download it. Those who are paid members of the program are currently testing iOS 7 Beta 3 of the firmware.
However, if you are one of those who have jailbroken their iPhone or iPod Touch there is a Winterboard theme that you can download that will give your device an iOS 7 look on iOS 6+ .
It’s called iOS 7 Theme and the developer is AR7. It’s not a complicated tweak, it just replaces your iOS 6 icons with the new flat vibrant ones from iOS 7. While it doesn’t give you any of the functionality of iOS 7 it will give you a pretty good idea of what it will look like.
How to Download iOS 7 Theme from Cydia :
- Launch Cydia
- If you haven’t already, add the MacCiti repo by going to Manage > Sources > Edit > Add and type in this address: http://cydia.zodttd.com.

- Tap Select Themes
