Below you will find a dozen free iPhone wallpapers, part of our pre-order bonus to thank you for buying the book BALANCE: The Art of Minding What Matters Most.
These wallpapers should fit most iPhones, but unfortunately, they’re too small for iPads. Sorry about that!
If you need help saving these images to your own computer or cell phone, you will find a step-by-step instruction guide at the bottom of this post.
How to save these images to your iPhone:
- Open the link from the selection of wallpapers above by clicking on the individual image(s) you wish to save.
- Lightly press the full-size photo on the media page and choose “Save Image” from the menu that pops up when you do that.
- That’s it! The photo can now be found in your Camera Roll.
How to set these images as wallpaper:
- Once the images have been saved to your iPhone, click on your “Settings” icon to change your phone’s wallpaper.
- Scroll down until you find “wallpapers & brightness.” Click on that, then click the image under “choose wallpaper.”
- You’ll be given two options for selecting new images: “Apple Wallpaper” and “Camera Roll.” Tap “Cameral Roll,” then navigate to the image you wish to set as your wallpaper and tap it. Choose “set.”
- You will be given the option to set the image for your lock screen, your home screen, or both. We recommend using these photos for “Lock Screen,” although they’ll work for either.
How to create a “wallpaper album”
- This step is entirely optional, but will help you keep your wallpaper images organized so they’ll be easier to find next time you are in the mood for a change.
- After saving all of the above images to your iPhone (see first step above), click the “photos” app in your iPhone (not the camera roll).
- If you are not there already, choose “albums” from the selection on the bottom, then click the plus sign in the upper left hand corner to create a new album.
- Name the album something that makes sense, such as “Wallpapers” or “Favorite Wallpapers,” and then click “Save.”
- After you’ve selected all of the photos you’d like to add to this album (you can add more later), tap “Done” in the top right-hand corner.
- The new album is saved. So now, when you click on “Choose Wallpaper” in Settings, you will see a third option listed alongside Apple Wallpapers and Camera Roll — this new wallpaper album you just created.
