Starting with the most eye-catching change: new rainbow wallpapers. These wallpapers only work when using dark mode on your iPhone or iPad. The wallpapers are inspired by the rainbow flag.
2. App library gets a better overview
The layout in the App Library, or App Library, has been overhauled. Categories have been renamed. iOS 14 automatically creates the format based on the apps installed on your iPhone. Facebook and Instagram, for example, end up in the Social folder.
