New screenshots of iOS 14 leaked on social media yesterday have revealed that Apple could be bringing more customization options to its operating system. Specifically speaking, the wallpaper settings menu is undergoing a change with the addition of a “Collections” tab, revealed @DongleBookPro. Moreover, iOS 13 wallpapers will also be kept in a separate tab and a third category “Classic Stripes” is also seen in the screenshots. The new organized layout should be a very welcome change as far as freedom to choose new wallpapers is concerned.
The Collections tab could have a library of personally-clicked photos that can be used as wallpapers, something that has been sorely missed on iOS. Also, the screenshot mentions a new “Home Screen Appearance” option which will allows users to alter the appearance of only the home screen. It is similar to the watch face settings found on the Apple Watch app.

Apart from the new visual change, 9to5Mac reported that Apple could also be working on introducing movable widgets to the iPhone and iPad. Referred to as “Avocado” internally, it is related to the Springboard app that controls the Home screen. However, there’s no guarantee that this will see the light of the day as it might be scrapped after tests. This finding goes well with the new home screen wallpaper setting as a lot of details on the home page can make users miss crucial information.
DongleBookPro has previously provided images from Apple’s new CarKey system which leads us to believe that these new screenshots could be legitimate. Apple usually unveils new iOS versions at the WWDC conference which is held in June and we could see iOS 14 at the same time this year.
