Apple also looks like it’s changing the way wallpapers are organized based on the tweeted iOS 14 screenshots. DongleBookPro shows off a Collections section, which you’ll be able to fill up with your own photos, as well as a section for iOS 13 wallpapers that will remain even after the iOS 14 update arrives layer this year. Similar wallpapers look like they’ll be grouped together and you be able to swipe horizontally to view your options.
9to5Mac, which has previously reported that third parties will be able to offer wallpaper collections in iOS 14 which will be integrated into the OS’s settings, says that the DongleBookPro images point to bigger changes for the look and functionality of iOS 14 that include the addition of true widgets to Apple’s mobile OS.
