The current iPhone lineup undoubtedly offers the best displays from Apple to date, but the background wallpapers do not really fit the screens. There are many third party wallpapers that you can use as well as those that you create yourself. However, if you want the typical Apple feel, you'd better stick with Apple wallpapers, and the iPad Pro has some gorgeous ones that look great on an iPhone.
These stills are exclusive to the iPad Pro, but that does not mean you can not have them on your iPhone right now. Reddit user ajsayshello discovered that they could unload the 5K demo images from an iPad Pro in the Apple Store and then upload them online for everyone.
While their first upload to Imgur resulted in compression, Reddit user TomLube appears to have helped create a WeTransfer link containing 5K versions of 25 full-resolution images of the iPad Pro. Below we have added the missing background image of Buenos Aires for a total of 26.
Of course it does not matter if the pictures are 5K or not when they are displayed on an iPhone. Apple's iPhone displays can not render images of this quality correctly.
A 5K image is about 5,000 pixels wide, and these iPad Pro images are 5,464 pixels wide at full resolution – twice as wide as the resolution of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Using a portrait or landscape wallpaper, the 5K images here are almost five times wider than the iPhone X display and over seven times wider than the iPhone 8 display.
That's not to say that these images are on your iPhone not look fantastic iPhone X or even your iPhone 8, 8 Plus or older iPhone model. Quality is more than just pixels, but if you just talk about "5K," iPhones just do not care what they're like today, so imgur images are more than good.
19659010] While you need to download these great iPad Pro wallpapers to follow the WeTransfer link, this is not a permanent solution. Free WeTransfer links expire after only seven days. So, if you come to this article just one week after publication, you're out of luck.
That's why we uploaded all images to our own MediaFire site here. We make sure the link stays valid forever. So if you need to download it again, visit it again or this article. You can also get them out of the Imgur Gallery, but there are some background images missing, so MediaFire is the way to go.
Of the 26 wallpapers shown here, 14 are portraiture while 10 are landscape. Of course, all are matched to the dimensions of the iPad Pro, so no one fits on your iPhone. Due to the shape of the iPhone display, the 14 portrait images need to be cropped less than the landscape images, but everything works fine in almost any orientation that you think is right.
