Guide To Select Perfect iPhone Wallpaper Size

Trying to find the perfect size for your iPhone wallpaper?

Well, if you have bought a new iPhone recently, you will need to find out the best wallpaper size. The wallpaper dimensions and aspect ratios do make a big difference to how your photo looks on the screen.


For instance, if you have selected a photo or image with different aspect ratio, it will look weird as iPhone wallpaper. The device will automatically adjust the photo size as per the preset template, and you might get to see a blurred image on the lock screen.

So, even if you like the photo and want to use it as wallpaper, you will have no other option than to look for something else.

To avoid this problem and confusion, you can refer to the following list of wallpaper sizes.

Pro Tip

If you find it difficult to remember screen resolution and pixels, try to remember aspect ratios. For new series of iPhones, use 9:16 ratio. 

It should do the job for you! And most importantly, you don’t have to remember complicated numbers each time.

You can also use this ratio to crop large-sized image files.
