Huge Home.app Gradients

Ryan Govostes:

Home.app takes 360 MB to store a cache of background gradient images in various colors.

I guess that’s why there won’t be room for scripting languages. But, seriously, I wonder why they can’t be generated on-the-fly.

Update (2019-08-01): Collin Allen:

Underwhelmed with new Home app backgrounds in iOS 13. Apple should add images of textures one might actually find in a home — some tan wall texture, paved concrete, white subway tile, granite, green grass, or stained wood, etc. These would be more representative of real spaces.

That would take a small amount of thought and effort, which defeats the entire point of Marzipan/Catalyst.

This is weird, but hardly surprising.
