I think the only time I've used a stock apple wallpaper was when the globe one was out ... I usually just waste my time browsing and looking for one that stands out and I like at the moment, usually some not trending and never will be trending obscure image of something ... I wouldn't be surprised if Apple released yet another app (for wallpapers now) with "curated/suggested" or otherwise "recommended" ones ... instead of letting the end user browse categories uniterrupted.We haven't had fresh new wallpapers since ~iOS 9. Time to completely overhaul the wallpaper selection; the dafault apple ones are too boring, too small a selection, and have been there for wayyy too long
And why can't there just be a guest account already?? The you can let someone else use it for basic iPhone functionality without seeing your private stuff, and have it reset every time it is lockedI agree it's imperative to have the ability to hide an app from view. For anyone who had a separate page or folder, with apps hidden in it, now a person can just flick for the app library and see a full list. Very counter intuitive for privacy.
Is that basically what's being discussed at Apple Delays Ad Anti-Tracking Features Planned for iOS 14 [Updated] (the changes for which don't seem to be part of this iOS 14 beta 7)?Pretty important change for entire iOS ecosystem which no one is aware since it's under the hood: Apple has granted "grace period" for everyone to adapt to user tracking rules they imposed in WWDC announcement and first six betas where advertising identifier was not available unless app prompts dialog to user asking if they are giving consent to be tracked or not. This is now changed and advertising identifier will be available as in iOS 13 until advertisers get their apps ready to face this change. It will remain like that in 2020, we'll see at which point in 2021 new rules will become a must.
i would use the app library if the UI was better. why can't it fit all of the folders on the screen at the same time? the fact that we have to scroll down is see all folder is a terrible UI. especially when i already have all my own folders on a single page without scrolling.
Seems to be the thing I'm watching for with each update: Do pinned text conversations finally stay pinned?
Update: They do not...
There were various people that have had pins disappear or not work properly in some earlier betas.They do stay pinned, I've been using this feature since one of the first early betas and it has worked flawlessly for me. I have 3 pinned threads and they have remained pinned to the top throughout the betas.
You realise that you not only don’t have to use the App Library, but you can continue to use your current home screens and organisational folders, right? No one is taking that away and forcing you to use a new system-wide tool that isn’t really what you’re complaining about it being.
As many others have said: it’s a library. Similar how on macOS you don’t see Launchpad or your Applications folder at all times, you don’t see the App Library at all times. It’s not a Home Screen. The benefit of App Library is that it’s one spot with all of your apps, so things can be removed/hidden from the Home Screen.
yes im not an idiot. what i am saying from a UI perspective, app library is a poorer experience than manual app management where you can put every app in a folder on a single page that doesn't require scrolling. curious why they didn't just automatically create the same folder UI paradigm that we've been used to.

Would you be happy if there maybe 6 or 7 different Christian theme wall papers or what about 6 patriotic American themes? Don’t you think is a bit much when almost 1/3 of the wall papers are lgbtq?Unless your device is forced to have a rainbow wallpaper, it’s not being forced upon you. Your annoyance that it’s an option does kinda come off as aggressive in a “I don’t care what LGBTQ+ People do in their own homes and bedrooms, but i don’t want to see it!” That’s why people got defensive. No one is forcing anything on you, and the rainbow is part of Apple’s original logo design in addition to being a symbol for the LGBTQ+ community. Do you want them to get rid of the Apple logo on startup too, or are you maybe unnecessarily annoyed by an optional wallpaper?
As far as the App Library showing apps you have installed, that’s its function. They aren’t folders because of the algorithmic nature of them. Maybe a way to customise this feature would be to, in the same space where you can choose apps to be ignored by Search and Siri Suggestions to have a toggle to not be favoured by the algorithm in the App Library category pages. That way people could deprioritise apps they want to keep private or already have on the Home Screen (including if there’s a widget on the Home Screen). That could be a cool implementation. And, speaking of LGBTQ+ people, it could help make closeted people safer with such a privacy option.
Same no unpinning or hiding messages so far in 7 for me eitherThey do stay pinned, I've been using this feature since one of the first early betas and it has worked flawlessly for me. I have 3 pinned threads and they have remained pinned to the top throughout the betas.

Again, the rainbow has been part of Apple’s logo since the beginning of the company. Many of their products have incorporated rainbow design elements since the beginning.
Now, if we’re going to pretend that the rainbow design is not the pattern and colour order found in Apple logo/designs: why should they support a marginalised group versus a single country or one of the biggest religions, many members of which persecute people of that marginalised group? I think it’s pretty straightforward.
(Speaking as a Christian, it’s not Jewish people picketing funerals with signs that say “God Hates Fags”. There’s a reason to give support and representation to people being persecuted for how they were born and not support for what people choose to believe.)
