You might be asking, “Why is iOS7 stretching my wallpapers?!” Unfortunately, recent iOS updates changed the way your phone plugs in wallpapers, and each images is auto-zoomed to fit with the new 3D motion aspects of iOS7… luckily, there’s an easy fix! Before uploading your new wallpaper, simply follow these four steps:

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Accessibility.
  4. Choose the option for Reduce Motion and turn the option to On.

Then just upload the photo and set to wallpaper as normal. This change will keep your iPhone from automatically resizing the photo!

Just a note, this wallpaper should work for many phones, not just the iPhone (although it may get cropped depending on the screen size). You can always download the many other free wallpapers from previous months, too!
