*Note: there is now an "ALT" (alternate) version of the calendar icon theme in v2.0 and later. Use this theme instead of the original to avoid the Wednesday Winterboard bug. Although the text will be slightly smaller and not exactly like iOS 6, this is a solution for functionality.
Bring back the skeuomorphic nostalgia! :D
This theme is compatible with all iPhones, iPod touch 5, on iOS 7/8. iPad (all retina and non-retina) and iPhone 6 Plus is now supported from v2.0!
I am really pleased to inform you that this theme has been built from the ground up with every single icon re-optimized for those beautiful 5.5, 7.9, 9.7-inch screens on iOS 7 and 8. Enjoy skeuomorphism at a level Apple has never allowed you to.
This theme is better than all the other iOS 6 themes out there, as those are not optimised for iOS 7/8. However, I have optimised each and every one of the iOS 6 icons to fully fit and support iOS 7/8's new icon scheme, so they will show exactly as they did on iOS 6.
iOS 6 Complete includes more than 1000 raw PNGs, meaning extensive compatibility with every single iPhone and iPad on iOS 7 and 8 - that's 15 device generations in total. It has never been more Complete than this. Such attention to compatibility is only rivaled by paid themes. It is also extremely precise with icon masks for all icon dimensions across every single iPhone and iPad running iOS 7 and 8 — that's 17 different icon sizes across the board.
This theme includes:
1. ALL iOS 6 stock icons
2. 3rd party app icons
3. iOS 6 status bar icons
4. iOS 6 icon shape
5. Choice of Celcius or Fahrenheit weather icon
6. bold icon labels which looks just like iOS 6 (iOS 7 only feature at the moment. for iOS 8, get ClassicLabels on BigBoss)
7. All iOS 6 Settings app icons
8. iOS 6 Folder background (install FolderIcons to configure)
9. iOS 6 Charging sound, lock sound and many other UISounds - it's not just about the looks.
10. iOS 6 Tri-tone alert (since the iOS 7/8 version differs slightly) — Set it in Settings > Sounds for the respective types of alerts.
