Hey Guys.

In all the ads and presentations,
the 5C has colour matched wallpapers.

But nowhere have they shown, these wallpapers can be changed.
I can see this as a marketing ploy to attract people to the 5S.

Anyone with information on this? Its just a speculation, but they're really emphasising the colour matched wallpapers a lot. I don't think theyre such a big deal. I can go online, and download a yellow wallpaper whenever i want.

It seems like theyre saying, the wallpaper is a part of the phone.

Anyone know 100% if they can be changed? Perhaps someone who played with one at the event?

Thanks

I wasn't at the event myself, but I seriously doubt they would do this (not that I couldn't be wrong, though). They already have included Siri, which we weren't expecting; I doubt Apple would try to use the ability to change your wallpaper as a selling point. Besides, changing your wallpaper should be a given with any smartphone these days.

Yes, they're just part of the included wallpapers in iOS 7. Not sure why they wouldn't use the dynamic color-coded ones in the commercials, they look tons better than the still ones.

You can change it. A friend has a blue 5c and is using the still that was the default on the 5s instead.
