iOS’86 theme for jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch brings old Mac look to iOS

Based on the concept of designer Anton Repponen iOS’86 theme for jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch brings the look of the original Mac to iOS devices. Originally came under spotlight as a concept in February, iOS’86 is a fully functional theme that will take your iPhone to another generation. The theme features 1,200 graphics and has custom designed icons for all stock and many popular third party apps including Chrome, Twitter, and others. Not only icons, but this theme also changes many parts of the UI and makes them black and white just like the interface of old Mac computer.

The font in the screenshots doesn’t looks perfect because i haven’t downloaded the font pack recommended with this theme. You can install the font and make the theme look much better than it is in the screenshots.
