Download new iOS 16 wallpapers for your iPhone and iPad

This week, Apple lifted the lid on the next version of iOS, set for release later this year.

Apple premiered a new Lock Screen design, and another exciting change is an overhaul to CarPlay, with Apple now supporting vehicles with large dashboard screens.

Apple says that it will now integrate more deeply with vehicles to control things like climate control, and users will be able to personalize their experience. Other changes include new notifications, refinements to the Focus experience, an iCloud Shared Photo Library, and more.

If you want to give your smartphone the iOS 16 experience without downloading the beta, which is likely to be filled with bugs and could make your device unstable, you’ve come to the right place.

Choose your favourite iOS 16 background below, right-click on it, and choose Set as Wallpaper. You’ll then be able to enjoy a new look for your smartphone and get ready for the release of iOS 16 in September!
