Recently deployed, iOS 16 beta 3 contains what looks like an easter egg to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the iPhone: the clownfish wallpaper of the original iPhone.
Apple began to deploy the third beta of iOS 16 on July 6. Always intended for developers, the latter is mainly talked about for the addition, on the sly, of a wallpaper that may well remind you souvenirs. And for good reason, Apple has simply remastered the clownfish wallpaper from the original iPhone to add it to the list of wallpapers available on iOS 16.
As pointed out 9to5Macthis little novelty acts as aeaster eggs to celebrate 15 years of the iPhone… but unfortunately it is not accessible to all users who have installed beta 3. At least not yet, and it is probably not voluntary.
A wink from Apple towards the nostalgic
We learn that a bug would in some cases prevent the display of this “new” wallpaper in the settings of iOS 16. On Twitter, some users report not having access to it.
A problem that will probably be solved shortly by Apple. The firm must indeed deploy a new beta, public this time, later in July. iOS 16 will be launched in final version to all users during the fall, probably at the same time as the future iPhone 14 / 14 Pro. In the meantime, developers can still access beta 3 by going to the official developer page.
Has anyone else noticed this in iOS 16 Beta 3?

Finally, note that if the iOS 16 wallpapers are animated in real time, in particular to interact with the new lock screen, 9to5Mac managed to draw live wallpaper Clownfish a still image easier to share. The latter is available in full resolution at this address if you want to use it now, without waiting for the arrival of iOS 16 on your iPhone.
