You can change the settings of application icons using Icon Resizer, a jailbreak application for smartphones iPhone with open access to the file system.
To use this tweak, after downloading and installing it, you need to open the 'Settings' program and click on the line with the Icon Resizer options. The program will offer several options for sizes, as well as a list of applications for which these changes are available.
This tweak offers to resize icons in the range from 20 to 120 points, the base size of application icons is set to 62 points, but you can set any value.

If after using Icon Resizer you don't like the appearance of the icons, you can easily return to the original image; for this, there is a special switch button in the tweak settings. After clicking on it, all changes made by the program will be disabled.
