There are a handful of means to follow as to varying your wallpaper. There is the option of choosing a wallpaper from the collection of iOS of default wallpapers which come installed with the device. You could equally make use of your personal wallpaper dragged from the internet or possibly from your camera roll. Now let us go straight at them.

To start with, though, should you choose to design your personalized wallpaper (this could be via cropping the photo or extensively through Photoshop). Listed below are the wallpaper dimensions for each device:

iPhone 4/4s: 960 x 640
iPhone 6/6s Plus: 1920 x 1080
iPad 1/2/Mini: 1024 x 768
iPad 3/4/Air/Air 2/Pro 9.7″/Mini 2/ Mini 3/Mini 4: 2048 x 1536
iPhone 5/5s/5c/SE: 1136 x 640
iPad Pro 12.9″: 2732 x 2048
