Pretend You've Got a New iPhone X With These iOS 11 Wallpapers

The leak of iOS 11's final version provided us with more than a few hints about what Apple will announce at its press event September 12. While onlookers should expect to see new iPhones and an updated Apple Watch, those uninterested in the announcements could simply sit back and enjoy the gift provided to them by the company: new wallpapers.

According to 9to5Mac , iOS 11 has 16 new wallpapers to choose from for your iPhone or iPad. The images of flowers, celestial bodies, and retro rainbows reminiscent of Apple's older, more colorful logo, are all present in the wallpaper set. Three of the 16 wallpapers are exclusive to the iPhone X, Apple's rumored thousand-dollar iPhone.

The iPhone X-friendly wallpapers highlight the phone's rumored OLED screen technology, which excels in producing darker blacks thanks to its ability to light individual pixels rather than the entire phone's display. That means the predominantly black wallpapers draw less power than their brightly colored counterparts, which translates to an increase in battery life.
