Last week saw the release of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and as is always the case with new handsets, they’re sold out. But if you have one of the two variants, are you currently enjoying what they have to offer in the way of wallpapers?
How to get iPhone 7 wallpapers
Whether you love Apple or not, one thing you can say is that their wallpaper art is the best. This time around, they have used what look like images of different colored floating liquid as first-party wallpapers. You may have seen them: black background with a black iPhone 7 and a liquid colored blob in the middle. These were the wallpapers Apple used in its promotions for the two handsets, and in total, there are five colors.
Usually, first-party wallpapers can be quite uninspiring. However, this time, around, Apple has created something that appeals to many. So these wallpapers have made their way onto the Internet. These static wallpapers are available on the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus or, in fact, any handset. They have a resolution of 1242 x 2208 and look very sharp.
If you want to get your hands on all five of the static iPhone 7 wallpapers, anyone can do so from here.
More iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus wallpapers
But what if you don’t want the first-party colored blob wallpapers? There are some alternatives if you head over to pixelstalk; they have wallpapers for the iPhone 7 and the Jet Black 7 Plus.
In fact, many of the wallpapers on the site are free to download and mostly aimed at users who have a Jet Black handset.
Called the Drop iPhone and 7 Plus JetBlack for iPhone HD, this wallpaper is free, as are others on the site.
The above iPhone 7 Jet Black dye wallpaper is also free for anyone to use. However, there are some instructions that you need to read beforehand.
The solar eclipse wallpaper above is an example of other gorgeous wallpapers you can find for the iPhone 7. Again, I think this wallpaper was designed specifically for the black iPhones, but it will more than likely end up on various handsets.
The instructions for how to download them are available on Pixelstalk. However, if you’d rather know now, here they are:
Step 1: Find a wallpaper that you like and click it to view a larger image.
Step 2: Next, right-click and choose Save image as. This will enable you to download the wallpaper to your computer.
Alternatively, if you are reading this / visiting PixelStalk via your mobile device, press or tap on the image and select Save image as; this will download the wallpaper to your device.
And that’s it; you now have access to two sets of wallpapers for your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. However, you don’t actually have to have one yet to get these wallpapers. Just use a Mac or Windows PC or even an older iPhone and keep them safe for when your iPhone 7 turns up.
Update:September 28, 2016
It’s now possible to download all of the wallpapers used by Apple in its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus promotions. However, they are still static, non-live versions, and Apple still does not include these with the handsets when shipped.
As all five have now been converted into wallpapers usable on any smartphone including the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. As for their native resolutions, that is 1242 x 2208, which is enough to make any handset display look high class.
Here’s what the static wallpapers look like, you can get all five in a download pack from here.
As you can see each image offers a different colored almost gem like looking liquid blob. Personally, I was disappointed that there isn’t a copy of each one with a black and gray/white background. However, if you’re adept at using photoshop, you could quickly edit these wallpapers to have any background color you want.
Next, we have a new set of iPhone 7 wallpapers created by Twitter user @AR72014. They are unofficial, but they look great and come in matching colors for the handsets available. So that’s Matte Black, Jet Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver.
Posted on Twitter on September 22, the wallpapers are available to download now for free here.
Personally, I think these are the better wallpapers featured in this article. Of the five the blacks, I believe will make any handset stand out from a crowd.
However, the silver/gray does also look classy, what do you think? Come and share your opinion with us in the comments section below. Plus, if you’ve found any great looking iPhone 7 wallpapers worth sharing with others let us know that too.
