iOS 18 Leak: Revolutionary Changes Coming to Your iPhone’s Home Screen

Key Takeaways

  • iOS 18 will introduce enhanced Home Screen customization options for iPhone users.
  • These features will allow users to arrange app icons more freely, including creating blank spaces and rows.
  • Apple's upcoming iOS update will be announced at WWDC in June.

Insiders familiar with iOS development reveal that iOS 18 will empower iPhone users with greater flexibility in arranging Home Screen app icons.

Renowned tech journalist Mark Gurman from Bloomberg first broke the news, highlighting Apple’s aim to provide users with a “more customizable” Home Screen experience.

While the traditional grid layout will persist, iOS 18 is expected to introduce new features, allowing users to arrange icons more freely. It includes creating blank spaces, rows, and columns.

Unlike third-party solutions like Shortcuts and Widgetsmith, iOS 18’s native customization options promise greater convenience and official support.

With iOS 16 already enabling Lock Screen customization, iOS 18 is anticipated to bring similar levels of personalization to the Home Screen. If applied, this should mark one of the most significant revamps in years.

Apple is slated to unveil iOS 18 at its annual WWDC developer conference in June. Rumored features include generative AI enhancements for Siri and apps, RCS support in Messages for improved cross-platform messaging, design updates, and more.
