iPhone 6 inside view retina hd display

With the excitement of a new iPhone, comes the need for individuals to customize their newest devices. Late last week, we were able to get our hands on the official iOS 8 wallpapers thanks to a few tricks from dedicated iDB readers. The official wallpaper images quickly became one of the most visited wallpaper post in site history. If you missed them, jump over to the download gallery and pick them up for iPhone or iPad, even before iOS 8 launches on September 17.

The Wallpapers of the Week section is dedicated to bringing stellar images to you on a weekly basis. Every Sunday, we release a new set of wallpapers, primarily for iPhone, but also for iPad and desktop. When new iPhones launch, there is always a scramble to find quality images to make a single iPhone stand out amongst the crowd of others. Step inside for your newest downloads.

Wallpaper knowledge

With the advent of Apple’s newest flagship device, wallpapers will be difficult to find for the exact screen dimensions, not to mention the parallax measurement has yet to be discovered. We know the iPhone 6 screen is 750 x 1334 and the iPhone 6 Plus screen is 1080 x 1920. The parallax dimensions are currently unknown. After iOS 7 introduced parallax it took a while for everyone to determine the exact parallax size and I assume there will be differences in the 6 and Plus.

Until an exact dimension is known, using wallpapers slightly larger than the given screen size should help a little, but is not an exact science. Because of this conundrum, the included images for iPhone 6 are actually a little larger than 750 x 1334, hopefully playing nicely with parallax. However, it is a struggle to find images just slightly larger than 1080 x 1920. Below are guesses for iPhone 6 parallax and standard 1080 x 1920 images for Plus. Both sets of wallpapers should show no distortion on either device, but the parallax effect may not be exactly perfect.

As we progress over the next few weeks, expect the general populous to determine the parallax effect and start producing wallpaper images of exact measurement. Once we have access to those images, we will make sure to post them! To help the cause, any information you may have about iPhone 6/Plus wallpapers or the updated parallax effect, please reach out to me on Twitter @jim_gresham. After all, I have always said the wallpaper section is a community effort!

Bulk iPhone 6 Plus download: ZIP File


To download the walls above, click the corresponding thumbnail image. Once the full resolution image loads, tap hold, then save to Camera Roll. Assuming you want to save these for your iPhone 6, download them to your desktop. Right click and save the full resolution file into a folder. In iTunes, designate that folder as a sync folder for your new iPhone 6. Of course, you will have to wait until you have the 6 to actually designate the folder in iTunes. Alternatively, you can download all of the images at once by selecting the ZIP file link below the corresponding thumbnails.

Don’t forget to help contribute! This section will be much more successful for the new devices if you help out. Make sure to send tips my way @jim_gresham, whether you send an image or details about parallax.

Finally, these images will still work on iPhone 5/s/c and iPhone 4. We often have complaints about older devices not being compatible. Any larger image is always backwards compatible with a smaller screen, but you may have to adjust the image slightly when setting as wallpaper in Settings.app or Photos.app.

    Best wallpaper of all time

    • Ajax

      Makes me want to cry

      • iphone5s&sgs3

        LOL wtf

      • Ajax

        Like he said it is the best wallpaper and it cannot be used anymore, you should get it since the word iPhone is in your username.

      • AJM

        What do you mean with “it cannot be used anymore”? Every picture in the universe can be used as a wallpaper.

      • Ajax

        there is no original copy of this wallpaper online, they are all lousy remakes.

      • I could pull it from an original .ipsw if you want.

      • Ajax

        Ok, if thats not a problem then that would be great.

      • Guest


      • Not a problem, I have plenty of devices still running older versions of iOS laying around. This is taking from a Jailbroken 4S running 6.1.3

      • Here.

      • Ajax

        thanks, you don’t my any chance have an iPad version do you?

      • I have an iPad 1 but I am unable to access any data on it sorry right now. Ill post it If I can get into it.

      • Ajax

        alright, thanks a lot for the SD version though. if you are ever able to access the data it would be nice if you could email it at sindri2412@gmail.com.

      • No problem.

      • I sent them a few min ago.

      • Ajax

        Dude, you made an account just to reply to my comment?

      • Matt

        Your profile picture makes me want to cry. 😀

      • Ajax

        mine is the logo of an application that every user here with an IQ higher than their shoe size should know, what the hell is yours???

      • Chinch07


      • Eric Mason

        Matt’s profile pic is something anyone who makes a decent amount of money would know, which correlates directly with said IQ since most people who make enough money to afford the item with this particular logo have a high IQ.

      • Ajax

        dude, im f*cking 15!

      • lbytesxk

        Yes because people with money all have high IQ, ROFL
        Besides, it’s a stupid BMW, anyone can get one from the low 30k’s

      • Heisennberg

        Jealousy is ugly

      • Jonas Johnson

        iOS has gone very far. I used this that jailbreak that your default logo represents to jailbreak my iPod Touch 4g back in 2012. Memories. I forgot which one it is though. Was it Greenpois0n or Absinthe because both of those jailbreak tools used that logo. Greepois0n used it first though.

    • leart

      • Rares

        The second one? What do you mean?

      • Noah

        The second best.

      • Ajax

        i think the second best was the iOS 5.1 wallpaper.

      • leart

        thats what i wrote, ios 4-5 is the most famous, the second best is the ios 6 default wallpaper

    • Fredric Kanngard

    • mobiIevids

      Best wallpaper ever

  • Gate

    iPhone 6 Plus wallpapers must be huge, with the homescreen horizontally and parallax enabled, the wallpaper is zoomed in considerably. Maybe 2100×2100?

    • Peter

      Well in file, they’re 1080 x 1920

  • moofer

    Not sure why someone colored the Andromeda galaxy pink… Hardly an improvement over the original.

  • DtownBlogger

    Here ya go!

    • yaynative

      • DtownBlogger

        Thanks Again @Matt!

  • leart

    • leart

      And this one for lock screen

      • Freddy Born

        where did you get this?

      • leart

        In a previous post here at idb, two days ago i guess

    • TechLove

      Is the iPhone 4s that small? 😮

      • leart

        Yeah, i still love the look of 4/4s but yeah nowadays is small

  • NaSty

    So as the iPhone 6 Plus has ‘proper’ 1080p resolution, does that mean 1080p movies will look better on it? (less/smaller black bars than an iPad maybe or an iPhone 5, which have weird screen resolutions)

    • Alex Blaha

      The iPad does indeed have a non 16:9 screen ratio, but the iPhone 5/5s have 16:9 aspect ratio’s, so no black bars are present while watching 16:9 movies. Although, a growing number of movies are now using a 2.5:1 (I think) cinematic ratio which display black bars on any 16:9 device (including new TV’s). I doubt the movies would look any better to the eye on a iPhone 6 Plus other than it’ll just be bigger.

  • Rami Tabaa

    Can you get us the new wallpapers on iOS 8 but for iPad?

  • Muhammad !

    I keep getting that error “you can’t upload more than 2MB !” :”(

    Okay guys I have a question.. Yesterday I was at the St. Louis Cardinals game vs. Colorado Rockies, and this girl by my right side had a 4.7 inch iPhone 6, at first glance I thought it was just an android. But after looking at it a couple of times I found out it wasn’t, it was more like an iPhone.. So I asked her if that was the iPhone 6, and she quickly pulled it down and whenever I wasn’t looking at her she putted it in her purse. She didn’t even look at the phone again. At the eight inning she left the game without any other words.. Probably Apple employee? A clone? I don’t know and I clearly saw she used reachability to open the messages app..
    Then this guy behind me whenever she left touched my back and said “Brother, that was an iPhone 6.. I was looking at it for a while before you asked her and to me it was clearly the new iPhone.” I don’t know. What do you think guys?

    • Vighnesh Manick

      Maybe she knows a guy

      • Adam

        Probably.. Or maybe Apple employee on vacation? Who knows.. But it the phone is stunning..

    • TechLove

      Damn! How was it looking? i mean, was it elegant like the 5s or was it beautiful in its own league? Was it too big? what colour it was? What did that other guy thought about it’s design!? 😮

      • Adam

        It was fairly big! I was surprised! I’m not sure if it was the 4.7 or 5.5 because I haven’t seen any of them in person, but it was clearly an iPhone, It was white but she had a case on it which made it harder to notice if it was an iPhone or not.. It looked high quality that’s why I kept looking at it thinking “this can’t be an android!” And for sure it wasn’t! Even the guy behind me agreed with me!

      • Amac

        5 more days man!! I can’t wait to get my hands on mine!

    • Charlie

      I saw someone using an iPhone 6 plus in a restaurant in bay area, I guess he is Apple employee. But it really looks like an android phone at first glance lol

    • sosarozay300

      yeah they gotta keep them in disguise until theyre officially out

  • jack

    is jeff dead?

  • hebron2000

    In what time unlock iphone 6 is coming?

    • jack

      the t-mobile version is unlocked

      • hebron2000

        I talk withe apple they said it’s locked to t mobile

      • jack

        damn it used to be unlocked…..

    • Joseph A. Ahmad

      If I’m not mistaken, you may be able to get the Verizon model of the iPhone 6/6 Plus. If you buy it as device only (don’t have it activated), it should work for you. The Verizon iPhones have come completely unlocked since the iPhone 5, maybe eve the 4s but I can’t confirm the 4s. In all actuality, any LTE/4G capable Verizon iPhone has to be unlocked as Verizon struck a deal with the FCC in order to purchase a part of the LTE spectrum. So again, try getting a “device only” Verizon iPhone. It should have the Verizon sim card but it shouldn’t be activated, and then you should be able to input another sim card. And for more proof, the unlocked version of the iPhone 5s is the same model as the unlocked version here in the United States, model number A1533. Give it a try and see if that works. Best regards.

  • Alex

    Nice one

  • XZavier

    Ok, all of these are nice I guess, but can someone please give me the link to the wallpaper that is on the iPhone in the picture for the post when on the main page? Because I really want that one!

    And if you don’t know which one I mean, I mean this one.

    • Alex

      Here it is..
