Sample Screenshot of white icons created with Mister Icon app on white wallpaper

For example, if you are using icons with a solid white background, you can set a white wallpaper on your device and the icons will look like they are just hovering in space.*


Prior to iOS 10, home screen wallpapers retained their correct colours, so it was possible to have a virtually seamless effect using any of the wallpapers above.

iOS 10 introduced a feature/bug where all home screen wallpapers were automatically darkened by the operating system so that it was impossible to have particularly light coloured wallpapers. So for example, a plain white wallpaper would look plain white on iOS 9 and earlier, but on iOS 10 the same wallpaper would look grey.

Thankfully, iOS 10.2 appears to have fixed this problem (for some colours at least), so the seamless effect is now possible once again!

After testing several different iOS devices and iOS versions, the results of my investigations are shown in the table below.
