Apple’s fancy new (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8, now available to preorder for delivery next Friday, ships with an exclusive new wallpaper. It’s already available to download, which means you can enjoy it on any iPhone without having to fork out $700 for a new one.
Your iPhone’s dock is ever present. Also ever-present is the translucent ribbon behind the icons. Maybe it’s there to provide visual separation from the wallpaper behind it, but seeing as the rest of your home-screen icons are left to fend for themselves, visibility-wise, then maybe not. Perhaps it’s there to provide a visual separation between the privileged Dock and the rest of the home-screen proletariat?
But if you don’t like this separator, then you’re stuck with it. Or are you? You may not be able to remove the ribbon, but you can hide it.
The iPhone X will gain new functionality over the next year, according to Apple design boss Jony Ive.
In a new interview with design magazine Wallpaper, Ive discussed the challenges of designing in an age when products can be unfixed and fluid. With the edge-to-edge screen on the iPhone X, Apple’s now creating objects that don’t even look like they were designed, which is exactly what excites Ive.
Still looking for the perfect wallpaper for your new iPhone X? The folks at iFixit have come up with a new set of that takes advantage of Apple’s new edge-to-edge display to make it look like your iPhone X doesn’t have a screen at all.
Now you don’t have to pry your screen open just to get a look inside.
The iPhone X comes 10 years after the original iPhone. Even the name itself could be a not-so-subtle homage to this: Apple used X, the Roman numeral for 10, for years to name the Mac’s OS X operating system. But there is another 10th anniversary reference in the new iPhone X: It comes with an updated version of the original iPhone’s iconic wallpaper.
Apple has designed a whole bunch of awesome new wallpapers for iPhone and iPad that will be available in iOS 11. They weren’t present in earlier beta releases, but they are available in the iOS 11 GM that leaked out on Friday.
Developers received a surprise update for iOS 10.2 this morning after Apple seeded the fifth beta build of the new software.
The new beta comes just four days after Apple released the last version to developers. This time, both devs and public beta testers can get their hands on the iOS update that brings a number of new features to iPhone and iPad.
