For all the fruitful AI announcements during yesterday’s WWDC conference, some of the loudest cheers were reserved for the most basic features. Most notable perhaps was the new Calculator app for the iPad, but another “it’s about time” addition is the ability to customise the iPhone homescreen by placing icons anywhere. Oh, and you can also change the colour of them.

The latter change is already proving to open up countless possibilities for the overall appearance of the iPhone – arguably the biggest step for customisability since iOS 14’s custom icons. But judging by the response on Twitter (sorry, X), that might not necessarily be a good thing.
