Customize your iPhone with iOS 18

iOS 18 is here to help with more customization, Messages improvements & more

WWDC 2024 revealed new ways to customize iPhone with iOS 18, including new Home Screen arrangements and filters, Control Center pages, and replaceable buttons on the Lock Screen.

It was clear that WWDC 2024 would focus on artificial intelligence, but Apple started things off with feature upgrades first. iOS 18 has been revealed and it is more customizable than ever.

The ongoing annual theme of including new customization features continues. Icons can be placed anywhere on the Home Screen, which enables more unique layouts and eliminates the need for blank icons.

Icons can also be themed with colors. Backgrounds can be enabled for dark mode, or icons themselves can have color filters.

Apple Photos has been redesigned with new discovery features

Photos has been redesigned with new organization and memories features. There are no longer tabs at the bottom to switch views, instead, everything is in one scrollable view.

A new collections feature brings memories and topics into groups below the main photo grid. Each collection view has an audio playing view at the top with plenty of filters to find photos of people and places.

Despite some much-needed upgrades across various iOS systems, all eyes are on Apple’s AI features. Those will be revealed later in the event.

This is a breaking story. Refresh the page periodically to see new information as it becomes available.
