Platoon members with an Apple device such as an iPhone or iPad can now change the default color of their app icon. Peloton posted the news to their Instagram Story from the central @OnePeloton page:
Please note that you must update your Peloton app to the most recent version before you can change your app icon. Version 15.59.0 was released on the app store in the last 24 hours and users can now update their app to the latest version, which allows you to select an app image in a different color than the original. Many users report that they have to go to the app store and manually update the app there because the latest version has not yet been automatically updated.
Once you’ve downloaded the update, there are a few different ways to change the color of your app icon. You can do this directly from the Peloton app by tapping your profile icon in the bottom right, pressing the image with the three horizontal bars (the hamburger menu) and selecting “change app icon.”
You can also press and hold the app icon directly on your iOS home screen. This includes a shortcut to change the icon without having to navigate through the Peloton app. You’ll see a menu with the option to change the icon, which will open the Peloton app straight to the page with different color options.
There are six new options to choose from, all with a black background, but showing the Peloton “P” in a different color than the default white.
For now, this is only an option on iOS devices, not Android.
For years, the background of the Peloton App was the standard orange/red color, but it changed to black in May 2023 when Peloton announced the relaunch of their brand.
If you’re struggling to find the option to change the look of your Peloton app on your iPhone or iPad, make sure you’ve downloaded the most recent version!
