WOTW New Year 2014 splash

If you missed the announcement last week, the Wallpapers of the Week format is changed. In a new effort to continuously provide top quality wallpaper images, readers are encouraged to submit any attractive wallpapers instead of simply ones created by an artist only. This switch also allows the images to be seasonally appropriate.

In a seasonally appropriate mindset, with Christmas behind us, the next holiday is celebrating 2014. Each year, a limited amount of new year options are created, primarily due to their short shelf life on users’ devices. However, several choices were rounded up and offered herein…


To offer a 2014 variety the following wallpapers are available for iPad and iPhone. While the images are not necessarily New Year specific, “time” is the running theme between the images. Whether switching to another calendar year or the Mayan calendar predicting the future, the wallpapers are all chronologically focused.

To download the respective wallpapers, tap each image to load the full resolution. Once loaded, tap hold, and save it to Camera Roll. From either Photos.app or Settings.app, find the appropriate picture, then set as wallpaper. From a desktop computer, right click the full resolution image, and save it to the iTunes sync folder.


With the new format, all images are now up for consideration. Readers no longer need to be the original artist to submit a wallpaper. If you have excellent wallpaper images, make sure to send them over to me @jim_gresham or jim@idownloadblog.com. For consideration, the images must be formatted specifically for iOS devices. If the artist is known, please include proper credit in the submission.

Happy New Year to everyone!

  • Leviscus Tempris

    Who would like these icons instead of the default for HiddenSettings7?

    • Giovanni Amadei

      no one cares

      • Leviscus Tempris

        Show your talent then

      • Giovanni Amadei

        You’re welcome

      • Dan

        if you don’t care don’t post

      • Giovanni Amadei

        Wtf Leviscus shouldn’t post with an argument that has nothing to do with the article

      • Dan

        Actually it wasn’t an argument. Anyhow, no need to get worked up over it.

      • Giovanni Amadei

        sorry for my english

    • Ishaan Malhotra

      The default ones are meaningless

      • Leviscus Tempris

        I know! And I just found the folder that has the icons! I’m going to do a replacement of them and do a tutorial on my fB page!

      • chumawumba

        Where is the folder located in ifile?

    • Leviscus Tempris

      Would love help with this. I’m going to try and duplicate HiddenSettings7 but place it in the Settings app like it was in iOS 7 beta not in control center where all my friends see it and mess things up. I could really use help finding the right people to get this going, not jerks who obviously have other issues.

    • Mikkel Frid Nørgaard

      Looks pretty sweet

    • Tahir Ahmetovic

      look much better !!

  • Abdl

    GUYS PLEASE HELP! Okay so my phone went off due to battery drain. When i put it on stock apps like safari,mail,weather crashes on start up. How do i fix that pls

    • Leviscus Tempris

      Stock apps crashing? I had same problem. I restored my phone and lost everything. Might can say you can try to save it all but if your jail breaking at this time most will tell you to be patient and don’t try to install just anything. Most things do not work and only the most current jailbreaks that say are for iOS 7 will work. I didn’t want to loose all of my stuff either but it is worth starting fresh than trying to fix something that could be broken many times over. If jail broken remove mobile substrate and substrate safe mode. That should delete all dependencies and clean your jailbreak. If nothing seems to work at that point do a restore. That’s what I would do. Or google more answers!

      • Abdl

        I was actually thinking of restoring,but I have alooooooot of things on my iPhone so it will be a paint getting them back after restore. I will keep searching for help. Thanks BTW

      • Leviscus Tempris

        If restoring is not an option due to the fact that you have not backed up your device, then I would suggest using iExplorer or iFunbox and backing up individual dada. that way if you have to restore, At least that way you can salvage some things.

    • patrick

      I had this too, I deleted a few tweaks from cydia, made a few reboots/respring and now its working again. Don’t know why though

    • Jamessmooth

      I’ve been having same issue on my not-yet-but-hopefully-soon jail broken 5s. Apps crashing, unresponsive trying to wake phone when asleep… Took it to the apple store, they ran their diagnostics tests. No physical issues, told me to consider restoring. I think I will probably do it. More of a pain than anything. That and I’ll lose my 7.5 GB of text messages 🙁

      • Nate McKelvie

        7.5 gigabytes worth of text messages? That in itself could have caused some of your problems, especially within the messaging app itself. The iPhone usually doesn’t have as many problems as other phones with large messaging app data like 7.5 gb worth, but it still does cause problems

  • Chris Zhu

    May I suggest my own new years’ wallpaper…
    😀 hope you guys like it!

  • blastingbigairs

    Took this one in San Francisco in China Town today with my 5s.

    • TheRunner024

      Nice picture.

      • blastingbigairs

        Thanks 🙂 I submitted it to Jim, hopefully it gets used on IMDB.
