    Anyone else notice when setting a wallpaper with a white background, or any background for that matter, that the home screen looks darker than the lock screen?

    Yep. This is done intentionally. I'm not a fan of it either!

    How do you know it's intentional?

    It happens with other colors too. My guess is to make the icons pop more on the screen but who knows.

    Because it happens with everyone. The iOS home screen wallpaper has always been somewhat dimmed but I think it's more prevalent in iOS 10. It's more noticeable because the wallpaper shows on the lock screen now.

    My home screen is noticeably darker. My iPad running 9.3.4 shows no difference. Even when in settings>wallpaper, the home screen view is much darker. I hope it doesn't stay that way.

    On my phone it makes the home screen look dingy, white backgrounds look grey.

    I cured the darkened home screen issue in public beta 3 with a Reset All Settings. Back to normal now in public beta 4.

    Do you lose anything other than settings by doing that?

    Yep, it's been like this for a while now (at least for me). I personally don't like it. I usually pick brightly colored wallpapers and it seems to just sorta wash them out a bit. =\

    No, just Settings and stuff. Alarms in the clock app will need be reset. A bit of work, but no loss. Fingerprints reset, etc.

    Settings like wifi passwords, do not disturb, sounds, brightness, privacy, location settings, notifications, etc., all get cleared with a Reset All Settings.

    Ughh, glad that my phone isn't broken but I hate this! Is there a way to fix this or at least get around it? Aside from increasing brightness?

    Yes and I absolutely hate it!!!!! I loved having an all white background, the text for the app icons would simply turn black, which is how it should be! Now white backgrounds literally turned grey! WTF! Even normal photos are dimmed, which makes absolutely no sense

    Yes, and it is very frustrating especially since I purchased an iPad Pro for the beautiful bright images on the screen but after updating to iOS 10 all my home screen images are duller than they appear in my Photo albums. I just got off the phone with Apple support and they said I should take it to an Apple store to check the hardware...I told them it is NOT the hardware, it is something that fit screwed up in the system update! 😡

    As did others, I noticed it and do not like it one bit. Looks muddier IMO.

    It's not a hardware issue. It's every single phone I've seen running ios10. As soon as I updated my iPad it turned to mudd.

    I don't always use black, but do use mostly dark wallpapers on the home screen.

    Yep, this is true. As soon as I downgraded back to iOS 9, my wallpaper is normal again \o/

    When I first started iOS 10 beta, there was a lot more darkening than normal. It was awful. When the next beta update came I Reset All Settings. That fixed it back to normal. I wish they would do away with the darkening all together. I'm on 10.1 beta and it still looks normal. If you're waiting for Apple to fix something, it won't happen. Reset All Settings did fix it for me.
