The process of setting wallpapers hasn’t changed much. However, the option of light and dark mode is what I find most fascinating. Almost all the wallpapers have an accompanying light and dark mode, and they go perfectly together. You don’t have to worry about setting a dark wallpaper and worrying about not reading the text properly.
