A few months ago, Apple rolled out the iOS 15 update for iPhones along with the launch of the new iPhone 13 series. Apple first unveiled the new operating system for iPhones at the 2021 WWDC. All iPhone models launched after 2015 or above iPhone 6s are eligible for the update. With the update, the tech giant introduced some notable features like redesigned Safari browser, SharPlay, Live Text and many others, but the feature that got most iPhone users excited is the Focus mode.

By using the Focus mode, users can filter notifications and apps by focusing on what they want at a certain time. Users have the option to block incoming notification and their status will be displayed to their contacts — in iMessages only. Focus has an option to set the mode for different occasions like work, driving, or sleep. One of the best parts about this feature is that if Focus mode is active on an iPhone, it will automatically apply to iPad or Apple Watch using the same Apple ID. But the thing that most iPhone users don’t know is that by using Focus mode, they can select a custom icon for a certain mode that will be seen in the status bar.

Users can choose from more than 25 icons including smiley face, fire symbol, paw print and several others. If you want to know how to get a custom icon in the status bar of your iPhone, you can follow these steps.


Open Settings on your Apple iPhone.


Scroll down and tap on Focus. You can spot it below the Sounds & Haptics.
