As of Beta 3, this is the default layout for both pages.
I wonder why there's an empty space on the first page, especially when there are other apps on the second page--and even fairly prominent ones like FaceTime--that could fill that empty space.

Apple should give us an option to reset the home screen layout without touching third-party apps.

I for one welcome the calculator to the default home screen, and not hidden in a folder :p
The Extras folder is sort of meaningless at this point with only a few apps in there while all the other ones already span 2 screens--might as well either pull them all out or put more into that folder.

Isn't that background pic upside-down? The water should be on the bottom, right? Or am I going crazy?


Never mind. It's UNDERWATER. Ha.

Why do the labels appear to be set in Calibri (with a weird black shadow) instead of Helvetica Neue?
Because I captured that with iTunes on Windows and not from my phone. I saw this thread and happened to have freshly restored with iTunes open on the Apps page, so I did it with that

While I agree it looks ridiculous, my guess is the reasoning for that is so people new to the iOS interface can see both the existence of multiple home screen pages and app folders. But it probably could've still been arranged better.

This is going to be rather interesting.

it was like that before

I always wondered why the home screen wasn't filled up on pictures of iPhone.



Always two spaces empty.

And now just one?
