App media library: iOS 14 brings order to the homescreen

In order to cope with the flood of apps on the iPhone homescreen, Apple is breaking new ground in iOS 14 with the app media library.

Ever since Apple the first iPhone was introduced on January 9, 2007, the homescreen remains largely unchanged. The technology at that time was very limited with a 3.5-inch screen and a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels (163ppi), but the basic concept has not changed much over time, despite the larger screen areas.
