Resolution


Resolution in mobile is the number of pixels that are across the screen is to a number of pixels that are downwards. For instance, the first iPhone had a resolution of 320×480, with 320 pixels across and 480 pixels down. Some of the latest mobiles have the same resolution to that of a high definition TV, 1920×1080, separate sets of red, green and blue lights, all present in a 5-inch screen.

Compared: New 2022 iPhone SE vs iPhone 13 mini

The new 2022 iPhone SE may look familiar, but it has quite a few new updated internals. Here's how it stacks up against the next iPhone in the lineup, the iPhone 13 mini.

Getting Your Wallpaper to Your Phone

There are several ways to get your wallpaper to your phone. I describe each at a high level because the exact details differ depending on what computer you’re using with your phone.

  • USB cable:
    1. Plug your phone in to a computer with a USB cable.
    2. Make the phone’s storage available to the computer (look in the notification bar on the phone for the “USB” notification, and select the “mount” button).
    3. Copy the image into the “download” directory on the phone.
  • download from the web:
    1. Put your image on a website. (Maybe you have one, maybe you use facebook or geocities, or whatever.) Make sure the website doesn’t resize the image, (most photo sharing sites automatically resize the image—you don’t want that, or you must know how to get around that).
    2. Open the web browser on your phone and go to the website.
    3. Save the image by long pressing on it, then selecting “save image…” from the menu that pops up. It will end up in your Gallery application.
  • Over Bluetooth or Wifi: In principle one should be able to copy the image over Bluetooth or Wifi from a PC, but I don’t know how.

After you’ve completed these steps, the image should be in the downloads directory on your phone. When you run the Gallery application, there should be a download section with your images in it.

Why the Wallpapers Get Messed Up on Your iPhone

Depending on the screen size and the acceptable image resolution, the iOS installed on your iPhone automatically tries to fit the background’s selected photo best. In this attempt, it stretches the width and height of the image as needed.

If the image you have selected is not of the exact resolution specified for your iPhone’s screen, iOS stretches it to put it on the full screen, thus making it pixelated/blurry.

As mentioned above, the best way to avoid such issues is to use images that match your iPhone’s exact size.

However, since it is not possible with every image you prefer to use as your iPhone’s wallpaper, you must rely on a third-party tool to do the job for you. A few such apps are listed below, along with their details:

01 wallpapers Free (Free) An app by Ki Tat Chung allows you to scale, rotate, and position the selected image as per your iPhone’s screen size and compatible resolution. The app can be downloaded on your iPhone from the iTunes Store for free. Download wallpapers Free (Free)

In addition to resizing and adjusting your preferred images as per your iPhone’s screen size, Wallax also allows you to add some effects like blur, focus, etc. to them. Download Wallax    

03 Wallpaper Fix ($0.99) Another app that has been recently optimized (precisely on November 17, 2015) by the developer Bernhard Obereder for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus mobile phones.

iPhone Rendered Pixels

These comprise of a full number of pixels that are scaled. The rendered pixels give you the number when you use the multiplier (1x, 2x, 3x) that the device has to the screen size in points. If you want to draw an image in max resolution, then this is the size that you should stick to.

How to find the dimensions for your Apple product

Canva does require you to enter the pixel ratio for your Apple product. This is information you could find on the Apple website when looking at your specific product. However, here is a quick reference if you are like 99 percent of others and don’t know this number off the top of your head.

iPhone:

  • iPhone SE : 1136 x 640-pixel resolution
  • iPhone 6s/7/8 : 1334 x 750-pixel resolution
  • iPhone 6s Plus/7 Plus/8 Plus: 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution
  • iPhone X and XS: 2436 x 1125-pixel resolution
  • iPhone XR: 1792 x 828-pixel resolution
  • iPhone XS Max: 2688 x 1242-pixel resolution

iPad:

  • iPad mini (all models), 5th generation and iPad air (1st gen and 2): 2048 x 1536-pixel resolution
  • iPad (9.7in): 2048 x 1536-pixel resolution
  • iPad Pro (10.5in) and iPad Air: 2224 x 1668-pixel resolution
  • iPad Pro (11in): 2388 x 1668-pixel resolution
  • iPad Pro (12.9in): 2732 x 2048-pixel resolution

This will allow you to have the perfect sized wallpaper for your Apple product. No more cropping or tweaking your pictures.
