The idea of a dock on a smartphone, be it an iPhone or an Android device, is a fantastic invention. You can stay up-to-date with a central set of apps that you use frequently. However, sometimes this dock feels like a hindrance to the style – but it's a trick to hide this transparency behind the most important apps at the bottom of your iPhone, without causing a jailbreak.
To cover the translucent, band-like background of your dock, we will use some special wallpaper by Hideaki Nakatani that completely masks the background of the dock. Some designs include a thick colored line at the bottom of each wallpaper, and these lines make the translucent dock layer become a transparent one. But not everybody works like that.
For lines with lines, the color of the line in each wallpaper varies depending on the color of the wallpaper in general, especially near the bottom where the dock is located. As a result, it's difficult to create your own unique background designs to hide the dock and remove the obvious disconnect between home screen apps and dock apps. For this reason, it is easier to use the specially developed Nakatani.
Remember that you need to find the wallpapers that match your specific iPhone. For example, you can not use an iPhone X wallpaper on your iPhone 7, but the Nakatani website has options for every wallpaper for all iPhones. You also need to be in the correct iOS version. Many of his docking wallpapers work on iOS 1
Step 1: Find the wallpaper you want
First visit the website of Nakatani, Mysterious iPhone Wallpaper to find the wallpaper you want. There are whole white backgrounds, batik-like colors, pastels and more. Some of them make the background of the dock invisible, while others make it barely perceptible. We've added a few of our most popular no-dock wallpapers for easy access.
If you use the Nakatani website, you will need to select the wallpaper that matches your iPhone model. Let's say you have an iPhone 8 Plus. Then tap the "[8P/7P/6P]" button. The "P" corresponds to "plus". Also, on the page that displays the wallpapers, make sure that the iOS version matches the iOS version that you have installed on your iPhone. Also, be sure to set "Decrease Transparency" to on or off as you'll need to know later.
Not all wallpapers will look like the following examples with the gray area that the dock would be in. I'll see in the other steps below where I used another wallpaper type.
Examples: iPhone X, X S X S S Max & X R Only
Examples: iPhone 6, 7 & 8 Only
Examples: iPhone 6 Plus, 7 Plus & 8 Plus Only
Examples: iPhone 5 S & SE Only
After you have selected the wallpaper on your iPhone Just set it as wallpaper for the home screen using either the Photos app or the Settings app. However, before doing so, you should look for the type of background on the Nakatani website page to see if "reduce transparency" must be turned on or off. Then make sure that the settings are made according to your settings.
To set a wallpaper in the photo app, locate the downloaded wallpaper and open it. In the options menu, click the Action (Sharing) button and then choose Use As Wallpaper from the series of action extensions. From here, make sure "Still Image" is selected and tap "Set," followed by "Set Home Screen." That's it.
Alternatively, you can do so through the Settings app by selecting "Wallpaper," and then "choose". Choose a new wallpaper. "Select the" Camera Roll "album and then the downloaded image, and make sure" Still Image "is selected, then tap" Set "and choose" Set Home Screen. "
