According to Bloomberg, this fall there would be no tweak in the home screen, neither would it have any major new features.
The report says Apple is also planning on revamping the Stocks app, improving Do Not Disturb to integrate Siri, as well as improvements to ARKit. A related enhancement would have also allowed users to let two screens from the same app run side-by-side.
