  • Twitter user @heyeased discovered an
    iOS 12.1 glitch that makes the folders and dock on your
    home screen transparent. 
  • The glitch involves using a certain image as the
    phone’s background, and turning on “Reduce Transparency” in the
    phone’s settings.
  • Twelve backgrounds are available for notched iPhones,
    and 11 are available for older iPhones like the iPhone

In some rare cases, phone software glitches can actually make the
experience more enjoyable. 

Twitter user @heyeased, who
creates the “Mysterious iPhone Wallpaper,”
discovered an iOS 12.1 glitch
that makes your iPhone’s
folders and dock transparent. The result is a minimalistic look
for the home screen that isn’t conventionally available, given
Apple’s few customization options when it comes to their phones’

There’s only one color you should consider if you’re thinking
about buying the iPhone XS

Setting up the wallpaper is simple:

  • Go to Settings —> General —> Accessibility, then toggle
    on “Reduce Transparency.” 
  • Next, pick out the background you’d like to use. For notched
    iPhones like the X, XS, and XS Max, click here.
    For iPhones without a notch, click
    . Scroll to the colored wallpapers, tap on one to open it
    in its full resolution, and save it. 
  • For iPhones without a notch, @heyeased recommends
    using the “Perspective” setting when applying the wallpaper. He
    also said to make sure you don’t move the image around before
  • For the iPhone X and other notched models, @heyeased said
    to use the “Still” setting when applying the wallpaper, and to
    make sure “Reduce Motion” is turned off in the phone’s
    settings. You shouldn’t move the image around before
    confirming, either. 
  • The wallpaper should now be applied, and your folders and
    dock should be invisible. 

Here are the results Business Insider achieved with an
iPhone 8 Plus and an iPhone XS Max:

It should be noted that some subtle lines are still visible on
the edges of the folders, and right above the dock. 

The creator of these transparent backgrounds has also released a
different glitchy wallpaper series, but these don’t make your
dock and folders disappear. Instead, these “Painter Type”
wallpapers cause your phone’s background, folders, and dock to
all appear as different colors. 

Here’s an example from @heyeased:

iPhones here, and
