The most common desktop and mobile wallpaper size is 1920×1080 pixels, representing around 50% of all screen resolutions. We also found out that Apple products’ wallpaper dimensions increase by about 11% every third generation (equivalent to about 3.6% per generation).

iPhone Wallpaper Dimensions/Sizes

In general, it seems that the resolution of the iPhone wallpaper has been increasing over time. For example, the iPhone 6 has a lower resolution than the iPhone XS Max, which was released several years later. It is likely that this trend will continue as newer models of the iPhone are released with higher resolutions and larger screens.

It is also worth noting that there are some variations in the wallpaper dimensions among the different models within a given year, such as the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. This suggests that Apple is taking into account the specific features and dimensions of each individual model when designing the wallpaper dimensions.
