Claim of US Patent No. 10,338,736

1. An electronic device, comprising:a display;
a touch-sensitive surface;
one or more sensors to detect intensities of contacts with the touch-sensitive surface;
one or more processors;
memory; and
one or more programs, wherein the one or more programs are stored in the memory and configured to be executed by the one or more processors, the one or more programs including instructions for:
displaying a first user interface on the display, wherein the first user interface includes:
a background with a first appearance; and
one or more foreground objects;
while displaying the first user interface on the display, detecting a first input by a first contact on the touch-sensitive surface at a location in the first user interface that corresponds to the background of the first user interface; and
in response to detecting the first input by the first contact, in accordance with a determination that the first contact has a characteristic intensity above a first intensity threshold, dynamically changing the appearance of the background of the first user interface without changing the appearance of the one or more foreground objects in the first user interface, wherein the dynamic change in the appearance of the background of the first user interface is based at least in part on the characteristic intensity of the first contact and wherein dynamically changing the appearance of the background of the first user interface includes displaying in sequence at least some of a plurality of images based at least in part on the characteristic intensity of the first contact.
