Hands on with the new iOS 7 wallpaper

By , Sep 10, 2013

New wallpaper iOS 7

The iOS 7 GM release includes a bunch of new dynamic and static wallpaper for users to enjoy, and we’ve taken the liberty to showcase all of them in a hands-on video just for you. The final version of iOS 7 includes quite a few brand new wallpapers, and many of them are really well done. Have a look past the fold to check them out for yourself…

Which wallpaper happens to be your favorite? Personally? I’m digging the gray dynamic wallpaper. It’ll look great on my Space Gray iPhone 5S.

    • Moi

      People plz reply to me when there is a full change log about the gm , I have t sleep now it’s 00:32 am here , plz let me know

      • Moi

        I love that snow mountain with the red bottom

      • Jonathan

        I’m not sure, but check the one where iDB accounces the GM was published to Devs, iDownloadBlog keeps updating it when new ones are found.

  • Alex

    Did panoramic scrolling backgrounds return to the GM release?

    • Jonathan

      As far as I know, it never left.

      • Alex

        Try loading a panoramic background under panoramas in wallpaper settings. It doesn’t scroll on my iPhone 5.

      • Jonathan

        It has to be a full panoramic, not a half panoramic if you know what I mean.

      • Alex

        If it shows up under panoramas under wallpaper settings, then it should be full panorama, right? Otherwise it wouldn’t even list under that category. I’ve downloaded a few more panoramas in all sorts of lengths even made a few with the iPhone and they all list under there, but none of them will panorama scroll on my home screen under the icons. I’m running an iPhone 5 with iOS 7 GM so I don’t know what I’m missing. I restored my iPhone too, didn’t update or restore a backup.

      • Jonathan

        No. You could enter panorama mode, mode your iPhone 10 degrees, and you’ll still find it under the panorama category. It has to be a full panorama sweep, or almost near full. Also, they have to be a certain resolution to work I think as well.

        Try this now, enter panorama mode and take a picture until it stops itself. Go to settings and enable it as a wallpaper. Does it work?
        Let me know if you’re still confused.

      • Alex

        That’s what I did several times before you told me to do that as well as download various panoramas that have worked on the previous betas and it didn’t work on the GM. All I still get is the lame parallax effect on the panorama instead of a scrolling background as in iOS 7 beta 4 before they removed it. Thanks for the help though. No one else even replied. In the future, it also helps if you don’t assume people can’t handle basic tasks. It reminds them of the lame tech support calls and puts a bad taste in their mouth. It’s almost condescending, even if it wasn’t meant to be.

        So am I to assume, that you can get a scrolling background effect as in iOS 7 beta 4 and prior before the GM? You realize that they removed that feature in beta 5 and still beta 6? No one has posted on if it was brought back on the GM.

      • Jonathan

        My apologies, I just tried it, and you are right. It was removed. It was removed in GM. I’ve done it several times in Beta 6, so it is GM only that doesn’t have it. Sorry for being such a big confusion.

        And about that, yeah, such lame tech support nowadays.

      • Alex

        Thanks. Glad I’m not crazy! Well, crazier.

      • Jonathan

        lol xD
        We all have a little craziness in us…

  • on3simpleclick

    The music on that video is so annoying..

    • Supacon

      Yeah, it gets repetitive really quickly.

    • Matt Taylor

      You know that… Immensely irritating :|

  • George Yfantopoulos

    How to get GM ? Will it delete everything i have on my Beta 6? :)

    • Lordthree

      OTA doesn’t appear to be an option

      • George Yfantopoulos

        I know, any other possible ways? Without registered UDID :/

      • Rickm_jr

        GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND FOR IPSW’s

    • Andranik Sahakyan

      OK you have to get the ipsw file, so either download a leaked one from any tech site or google search ios 7 gm torrent and get the right file.

      from there its just going to itunes and pressing shift+update for windows and i think command + update for mac. select the file you just downloaded and it will install like a regular update!

      • Alex Marwaha

        This has kept me up all night: I have the Ipsw file and when I say “open with iTunes” iTunes opens like it should. But where is the update button? I’m holding shift and I don’t see an update button? Plz help

      • David Dudovitz

        Don’t open the file directly, instead, plug in your device, go to the screen with the device info, where there should be an update button.

      • Alex Marwaha

        There is no update button. It’s just check for update and restore. Nothing else

      • Umut Bilgiç

        Shift + “Check for update” and select the destination of your ipsw file. Then hit enter.

      • Alex Marwaha

        so first look at the picture with the blue highlited file. that is the file i downloaded and will use to update my ipod. then i clicked shift and check for update in itunes. i selectred this file. then look at the other picture to see what happened. help plz.

      • Umut Bilgiç

        Make sure you download the correct ios file for your device. You jave clearly downloaded ios for another device.

  • Reda AB

    any download link? I might use these before 7 comes out

  • MrPringle

    This music is a punishment for my ears!!!

  • Yujin

    if you want the golden master NOW…go to the pirate bay…or kick ass torrents and search for iOS 7 GM (then enter your model, att is A1428)..enjoy

    • chumawumba

      You can get t without torrenting, or paying

      • GuiyeC

        What’s wrong with torrenting?

      • chumawumba

        Nothing…as long as the stuff you download is non-copyrighted

      • Alex

        What a completely idiotic and worthless comment. The GM is clearly not legally available unless you are a developer until the 18th and apparently downloading it through torrent is not okay by your statement, but it is okay if you get it by other means, apparently; “You can get t without torrenting, or paying”?

      • chumawumba

        yeah just ask a friend who is a developer

      • Alex

        If you aren’t registered as a developer, then it is still against their terms, even if you have a developer friend.

      • GuiyeC

        That’s about exactly what I meant.

      • Yujin

        well it is posted online…i have a developer account so no issues…but my friends just updated by using the old otion key trick.

      • chumawumba

        what trick?

  • Eric Mason

    They got rid of the Autumn wallpaper. I had it set when I upgraded to the GM and it was still set after I upgraded but it’s no longer an option. I switched to a different one to try it out and then realized the Autumn wallpaper was gone. Sad.

    • Moi

      You stil CAN get it

      • Eric Mason

        I’m sure with a simple web search, yes… but that wasn’t the point. What’s with the all caps?

      • Moi

        I was writing with French keyboard and the autocorrect made it “can” all caps so I didn’t fix it cuz I thought it doesn’t matter , sorry

      • Eric Mason

        All good.

  • Ron Rainz

    Jeff, I’ve always been nice and respectful to you…
    I never once left a nasty comment, started a flame war, or acted in any way that could be construed as disrespectful. I appreciate the work that you do.

    But why, Jeff, why – must you rape my eardrums with that annoying music in the video?? :/// ;)

    • Question

      Lol jeff is the best bro but the music was a bit annoying

  • disqus_TMmElvKDq6

    anyone know how to extract the new wallpapers onto my computer?

  • Grande PHD

    I want some different dynamic wallpapers. They are all the same. I hope we can find some on AppStore…

    • Umut Bilgiç

      I dont think Apple would go for such a thing, but it would be super awesome frickin cool.

    • Jonathan

      I so wish that. It’d be so nice to get a tiny taste of Android.

  • Jesus M

    Jeff, do you already have the space gray? :o

  • abdullah575

  • ☁⚡Bläzé4President⚡☁

    I’d love a post about ios 7 GM, how it runs, if we should think about updating now. blah blah blah.

  • Taf Khan

    I need to create me some panoramic scrolling backgrounds before io7 drops.. .

  • Tien Nguyen

    The color of the lock screen clock and text actually change to black or white in accordance with the color of the wallpaper. That’s something new right?

    • Y2J

      No, been like that.

    • Jonathan

      Nope, been like that since beta 1.

  • Alex Marwaha
