Apple allowed users to install iOS7 on Sept. 18. The upgrade includes everything from multitasking capabilities for all apps to a male voice for onboard assistant Siri.
Dedicated fans of the iPhone, however, were most taken with the elimination of the icon-heavy home screens. With an added degree of visibility for wallpaper images and better icon placement, users quickly created their own “masterpieces” on their new desktop and lock screens. Within moments of installing iOS7, they were sharing images of their new backgrounds on social media like they were Instagrammed lunches.
We did a scan of Twitter and found some of the most impressive backgrounds that have been made possible by iOS7. From personal moments to breathtaking imagery to, yes, even Breaking Bad in-jokes, iPhone users had some fun with the greatest invention since, well, iOS6.
And let’s hope these new backgrounds will look just as spectacular behind the spiderweb of cracks that will inevitably plague the screens.
Wow, the new iOS 7 looks great! pic.twitter.com/4FYfhA53Qb
