    I finally got my iPhone 7 black today, and I was surprised / disappointed that there don't appear to be any new live wallpapers specifically for the new phone - I was expecting to see the new coloured blob in a variety of colours as shown in the various Apple marketing clips.

    Could it be because I restored my new phone from my old 6s backup via iTunes as soon as I got it home? In which case, is there anything I can do to restore the new iPhone 7 wallpapers? Or does the new phone now actually feature these new wallpapers as depicted?

    No new wallpapers unfortunately.

    That's most disappointing, but thanks for letting me know. You've saved me the bother of restoring my phone.

    [​IMG] This is strange. Those blobs are supposed to be there. You're supposed to get new wallpapers with the new OS and most certainly the new phone.

    But you know, I think it's a mistake because this has happened before. We're supposed to get the wallpapers as advertised.

    I'll document this and send it to Apple, hopefully they can put those blobs in the next iOS 10 update.

    Sometimes people can even go in and find the code for the wallpapers and realize they're hidden.

    Can I just check - are they missing even for people who didn't restore an old backup but started afresh?

    Thanks... I'm sure this is an oversight by Apple and will be resolved in due course.

    It's true. iOS 10 on all devices comes with just one new stock wallpaper. Maybe they will add more in 10.1 or another minor update if they realize that people are disappointed.
