Version History

Be sure to check for updates as Virtual Backgrounds is updated regularly!

Latest Release

Version 3.0

Exciting news! The Virtual Backgrounds App has been rebuilt from the ground up in native SwiftUI featuring an all new design! More on that below.

• Optimized for iOS 14 (minimum supported iOS/iPadOS version: 14.0)
• All new design
• Support for iOS 14 Widgets
• 12 new backgrounds
• As always, Virtual Backgrounds doesn’t collect any personal data

Why does it matter that the app was rebuilt in native SwiftUI? This means that the app is setup for longer-term support, feature additions, improvements, and expanded device support. I’m excited to be able to continue adding new capabilities to future Virtual Background updates, as well as getting a macOS version out soon. Although this release is technically “3.0” it’s almost like a “1.0” as we’re starting fresh with this completely new user experience. I hope you like it!

Unfortunately this also means dropping support for older iOS versions. Please be sure your device supports iOS 14!
