    Ok. So I got bored with the stock iPhone wallpapers. I googled "bright iPhone X wallpapers" (I like the notch and don't mind showing it, lol) and saved this bright-greenish image from Google and set it as a Wallpaper, both lock and home screens.

    The font is a very dark grey-almost black, and the shading around the bottom dock where my Phone, iMessage, Camera, and Safari apps are no longer shows the white shading. See what I mean?

    Could this be a bug with iOS 11? Or something that is natural when using bright wallpapers? This is the first time I ever seen this and I've had bright wallpapers before...Kind of reminds me of the iPhone 5C days.

    I love this look and would keep it, except - now the home screens have a slight lag when swiping back and forth between pages.

    I am running iOS 11.2.6

    This has been how it works for many many versions of iOS. I think maybe even since wallpapers were introduced.
    It’s to make it more legible. Your speed issue is likely unrelated.

    The speed issue resolves itself when reverting back to a stock iPhone wallpaper.

    Very peculiar. Try taking a screenshot of a white web page and use that. Is it equally slow?

    Yes I just did that. Same shudder when swiping back and forth between home screens. Same thing happens on my friend's iPhone 6S Plus.

    Do you manually alphabetize your apps like that?

    I colour code my home screens. I have a lot of apps I never use cause I need apps in specific colours to make it work. A row of all green apps, a row of all orange apps, a row of all blue apps and so on.
