WOTW snow frost splash

Continuing our simple nature series, including mountains and lakes, the next images feature winter snow and frost. Ending November in the northern hemisphere means winter is coming. This year, it seems winter is arriving more quickly than previous years. Living in the south eastern US, I experienced my first snow in early November.

With Thanksgiving passed and temperatures plummeting, it is time to switch the Lock screen over to match the occasion. For an unknown reason, winter snowy wallpapers are my favorite genre. Consequently, find four wallpaper images below.


The images below are listed with iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Retina resolutions. As we typically find, many readers complain about alternate sizes for older devices. Please note, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Retina resolutions will fit and are scalable for smaller screens. With the Perspective Zoom feature on iOS 8, the images are even easier to scale.

Native resolution wallpapers are only important for wallpapers with specific patterns, boarders, or image features that are location-specific on the screen. None of the images below have any of those properties. Therefore, having a native resolution image is not necessary. The primary focal point of each image is in the center. Any part of the image that would but “cut off” by the screen size is not relevant to the overall image.

    Why only iPad and 6+? I like these but I have an iPhone 6

    • Riccardo Quartarone

      If you set an iPhone 6+ wall on your 6 doesen’t change anithings, while if you set an iPhone 6 wall on the 6+ it looks not at the better resolution because the 6+ have more pixel the the 6 in the same ratio

    I really wish apple would bring back the panoramic wallpaper option from iOS 7 beta. πŸ™ it was really good and I’m sure all the new phones can handle it especially if my iPhone 5 did.

    • jack

      Hey nice one!!! πŸ˜€
      I’m still running iphone 4 with ios 6.0, never updating to ios 7.1.2.
      I have got a question, i had an issue with imessage lately as it occured last night. “Waiting for activation” shown ages…… i tried switching off imessage and back on, still there. I tried resetting network settings – didnt solve the problem, i tried signing out of my apple id – didnt work either πŸ™
      I tried restoring my device using redsn0w since apple no longer signs ios 6.0 for iphone 4. I seriously need help!!!!!! thanks πŸ™‚

      • leart

        I remember that apple had a plan to drop support for iMessage on ios 6, I can’t tell since I’m not using it but in my ios 6 devices (3 devices) seems to be everything normal. Don’t panic maybe is a temporary issue.
        But if you really want to start from the scratch I would recommend to build a signed firmware with ifaith, is the only method working for me

      • leart

        Is incredible how easy and stable is to archive a downgrade with ifaith..
        Build the ipsw with ifaith, then put your device in dfu mode (hold both buttons for 10 second till windows make the connection sound, release lock and hold home button till the windows will make the second sound) use ireb to put the device to pwned mode. Disconnect the device, downgrade the itunes to 10.0.5 version, plug the device already on pwned mode, shift+restore and select the custom ipws πŸ™‚
        And if you really want to save your previous itunes data, just save the itunes folder on my documents/music, and put it back when you will use your normal version of itunes after you will done with downgrade reprocess.
        Sorry for the bad english πŸ™‚

      • andy

        Your are the best thanks mate!!! πŸ˜€
        So just ignore the imessage issue yeah? and continue using it like a normal device πŸ™‚ ?

      • andy

        Whats better, restoring using redsn0w or ifaith?

      • leart

        From my personal experience, ifaith to build the custom ipsw and restore in iTunes (11.0.5) obviously

      • leart

        A lot of people’s are having troubles with imessage, chances are that is nothing wrong with your device, I wold try just to sing out restart and sign back.

      • andy

        Done that and still stuck on that rubbish “waiting for activation” but some how when i tried texting and imessaging
        It works perfectly fine even though its checking and all hm……

      • leart

        can’t really tell, since im not an imessage user, but im sure that the problem is not in your device

      • andy

        Yeah im 100% sure theres nothing wrong with my device, probably the services or something….

      • andy

        So far after ur help, my imessage been working fine with no problem, but just problem inside settings to sign in and all pffttt. hahaha
