Everything new in iOS 14 beta 7: App Library & wallpapers

article thumbnail

The seventh developer beta of iOS 14 has been released to developers and includes a bit more polish as we approach the final release of Apple's massive update.

As we are deep in the development cycle with six beta preceding the current build, new features are rare and hard to come by. Still, Apple included a few noteworthy changes.

First, the new App Library has been updated with entirely new categories and updated category names. "Productivity" has become "Productivity & Finance," "Reference & Reading" has become "Information & Reading," and both "Shopping & Food" and "Travel" are new categories.

Another change is in the wallpapers category of Settings. The previous pastel-colored wallpapers with the retro stripes have been updated to work in both light mode and dark mode. Now when dark mode is enabled, these wallpapers will be jet black with just the stripes in the center. It lends itself much better to the dark aesthetic.

As always, this is a non-exhaustive list of the changes we've spotted so far. See any others not on our list? Let us know on Twitter @Andrew_OSU and we'll add them.
