iOS'86 was a personal project that developed into one of the most expansive iPhone themes of the time. Based on the concept designed by Anton Repponen, iOS'86 is a fully functional Winterboard theme for iPhone.

Including thousands of hand-pixeled monochrome graphics along with a port of the original Chicago font; iOS'86 takes your device back to another era. Available on iOS 4, 5, and 6.
