YOUR iPhone has two clever Steve Jobs tributes that you may not have noticed.
The late Apple founder changed the world with his gadgets – so it’s fitting that he’s remembered with at least a few fun iPhone Easter eggs.
First up is a clever tribute built into Safari.
You will notice an icon that looks like glasses.
It’s used to add pages to your reading list, but the specs may look familiar.
That’s because they’re modeled after the exact pair of round frames Steve Jobs famously wore.
The second Easter egg is harder to find simply because you need the new iOS 16 software update to see it.
Unfortunately, it’s currently only available in iOS beta, but you can sign up here.
And you will most likely have general access to the update outside of the beta in September.
This is said to coincide with the expected launch of the iPhone 14.
On iOS 16, if you go to Settings > Wallpaper, you’ll find a surprising new wallpaper.
It will look very familiar to Apple fans: two swimming clownfish.
In fact, it’s the wallpaper Steve Jobs first showed off at the launch of the original iPhone.
It’s an iconic moment in gadget history, but made weird by the fact that the wallpaper never made it onto the actual iPhone.
Instead, it was simply used for the original iPhone marketing (including the launch keynote and a TV ad), but ultimately scrapped.
Now it has appeared as an available wallpaper in iOS 16 beta.
It’s a brilliant tribute to Steve Jobs in the year the iPhone turns 15.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to say if the clownfish wallpaper will survive for the general release of iOS 16.
But it would be a great Easter egg to keep.
