Tweak your iPhone’s Home Screen

Here's how to keep it clean and make it more useful.

Did you know that changing your iPhone wallpaper is as easy as changing the face on your Apple Watch?

Plus, you can associate that wallpaper with a different Focus, making it easy to switch modes as well as wallpapers.

And also you can set your wallpaper to show the live weather using Apple’s pretty wonderful weather animations.

Find out how to do all this, and much more, in our comprehensive guide on how to tweak your iPhone’s Home Screen.

One more thing ...

We spent some time in our family talking about what’s the trade-off we want to make. We ended up talking a lot about design, but also about the values of our family. Did we care most about getting our wash done in an hour versus an hour and a half? Or did we care most about our clothes feeling really soft and lasting longer? Did we care about using a quarter of the water? We spent about two weeks talking about this every night at the dinner table.
