    Is it just me or the iOS 10 beta, but whatever wallpaper I set seems to be more dim compared to the actual picture in my Photos?

    Yeah, this is intended so you can read the app name text, etc. Been like this since b1.

    Thanks guys! It was the Reduce White Point and turning it off has alleviated it :)

    Why? You go to set your wallpaper for home screen and you set it and it's dim!?!?

    There is an issue with the ambient light sensor on a lot of 7/7+ iPhones. A firmware patch should be forthcoming and sort it out (hopefully).

    Doing it on my SE. I think it started with iOS 10.

    It's not the light sensor. The colours just dim and are not as bright as the photo in the photos app.

    I googled and Apple dim it on purpose so you can see the icons on the home screen. Why can't you keep the lock screen bright though.
