How to apply icons:

Icons can be used in many ways, for example, some of the icons comes with the interface were you can directly apply those icons there itself, whereas some don't so you have to go with the launchers, So if you want to apply from the launchers just go to the launcher settings ( not your mobile settings ), and then there look for the icon and select it, then it will show the installed icon packs on your device. If you are using a theme engine, then it's even more simple you can just go to the icons and select desired icons and apply them.
