    Hello folks,
    How do I make the home screen background on my iPhone 6s completely black in color?? I prefer this because the icons are more enhanced to the eyes. Any suggestions??

    Thanks

    Easy as finding one on the Internet , downloading it to your phone, and changing the wallpaper.

    You may want one with a touch of light in one corner...lots to choose from.

    On your pc/mac use any Paint type of program to make a 1334x750 solid black jpg. Email it to yourself, or OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.

    There's a faster way. :)

    Lay your phone down with the camera down (flash off) in a dark room. Take a pic.

    Black background straight to your camera roll. :D

    Place your finger over the camera sensor and take a picture...

    The anal-retentive in me had to test this, in case of noise in the camera photo, etc. I can't tell the two images apart.

    Good tip!

    I like the black home screen look. Makes me kinda miss the original iPhone.

    Why not?

    I've seen many nuances - a leather textured one, a wood grain one, etc.

    Interesting that this app requires iOS 9.2 or higher ...makes one wonder why?
