iOS 17 new Wallpaper Grid will allow users to rearrange and share wallpapers

Apple is known for constantly improving its devices, and its upcoming iOS 17 upgrade is shaping up to be no exception. While the company has been tight-lipped about the release, rumors and leaks have given us a glimpse of what to expect. One of the most exciting changes is an upgrade to the wallpaper selection process, which could make it easier for users to personalize their devices.

According to a leak from Twitter user @Analyst941, iOS 17 could introduce a new “grid view” for wallpapers. This view would display small thumbnails of up to nine wallpapers at once, providing users with a more visible range of options. The grid view would also allow users to delete wallpapers directly from the view using tiny minus buttons, and it would give users the ability to manage the order of their wallpaper selection.

Additionally, users may be able to quickly share and duplicate wallpapers with others by swiping up in a single wallpaper view and tapping the new share or duplicate button. These new features could provide a more user-friendly and customizable experience for Apple users.

While this leak is not an official confirmation, they align with Apple’s focus on improving the user experience. The company has made significant strides in recent releases, such as the introduction of Lock screen widgets on iOS 16. iOS 17 is expected to be a quality-of-life release, with many smaller upgrades and improvements, rather than major overhauls.

In addition to the new grid view, iOS 17 is rumored to introduce changes to the Control Center, CarPlay, and the ability to sideload apps. These upgrades could improve the functionality and convenience of Apple devices.

Apple is expected to unveil iOS 17 during the WWDC keynote on June 5th. While it remains to be seen whether the rumored changes will come to fruition, Apple users can look forward to exciting new features and improvements to their devices.
