Launchpad is still called launchpad as far as I can tell. I'm not sure what you're looking at? Spotlight search perhaps.

Correct. The F4 key label changed from Launchpad squares to a Search icon, fooled me.

Hmm, that's odd. F4 still works as Launchpad for me on my MBP.

Yes, the F4 key label changed. Maybe you have a touch bar and not Function keys. Also the icon is no longer a rocket going diagonally, it is a colorful 9 square grid.

I'm really liking the F3 key to access multiple desktops. With a 15" Macbook it was less necessary than it is now with a 13" Air. Easier to control than W10 taskbar buttons.

I have a 2015 pre-touchbar MBP, the F4 function key has a launchpad icon on it. I'm not sure why yours doesn't work as expected.

I quite like the icon redesign throughout Big Sur. Far more consistent.
