How to change the wallpaper on iPhone

Since we spend so much time with our phone daily, it is nice to be able to customize it using images that represent us.

The process is pretty much the same for all iPhones.

(iPhone, Iphone3, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone 11)

You can very easily change the background of your iPhone. Follow those steps:

Step 1: Go in your settings:

  1. Open your settings
  2. Click "wallpaper"
  3. Select "choose a new wallpaper"

Step 2: Choosing your wallpaper:

You have three kinds of wallpaper to choose from:

  1. Choose a default iPhone wallpaper between Dynamic, Stills or live categories.
  2. Select a picture from your album.
  3. Select a wallpaper that you previously downloaded from a wallpaper website.

*Live wallpapers don’t work with iPhone XR and iPhone 6.

Step 3: Adjust the image:

Simply drag the image to place it in the right position and pinch it if you need to zoom in.

When your wallpaper is the way you want it to be tap set.

Step 4: Choose where you want your wallpaper to appear:

You can choose where you want your new image to appear:

  • home screen or
  • lock screen
  • both

You can repeat the process if you want your lock screen and your home screen to both have different personalized images.

Finally, enjoy your new wallpaper on your iPhone and change it as many times as you would like.
