    Could someone who managed to get a Passport with the officially released 10.3 check to see if there's a way to turn on the icon backgrounds? I don't know when other devices will get 10.3 but it'd be nice to know before I download it.

    Thanks.

    What's wrong with the icon backgrounds? They make it a heck of a lot easier to see the text under the icon, and prevent the icons from looking like they're floating around unattached to anything.





    A simple choice to enable the backgrounds would have worked fine. Why we're stuck with one or the other makes no sense to me.

    Well, for starters,.. getting rid of the background allowed for an extra row of icons in every device. Good enough reason right there.

    If you really need a flat square to frame your icons, then perhaps your wallpaper is just too busy.

    Maybe I like my wallpapers? The wallpaper I choose shouldn't be dictated by the icons I have.

    If you want more icons on a page, make the icon size adjustable. They've gone with ugly flat vector style icons that would scale really well to any size.
