Pro Tip:

If you want to use one of your own photos as the home screen wallpaper, you can select the “Photos” option at the top of the wallpaper collection. From there, you can choose any photo from your camera roll or albums.

Step 6: Choose Display Options

After tapping “Set,” you will be presented with three options: “Set Lock Screen,” “Set Home Screen,” and “Set Both.” Selecting “Set Lock Screen” will only change the wallpaper on your lock screen, while selecting “Set Home Screen” will only change the wallpaper on your home screen.

If you want to change both, select “Set Both. “


  • If you choose to set different wallpapers for your lock screen and home screen, repeat steps 4-6 for each screen.
  • If you decide to go back to using the default wallpapers provided by Apple, just follow steps 1-3 and select one of the default wallpapers instead of choosing a new one.


You have successfully changed your iPhone’s home screen wallpaper! You can now enjoy a fresh new look every time you unlock your device.

Changing your home screen wallpaper is a simple yet effective way to personalize your iPhone and make it truly yours. So go ahead, have fun exploring the vast collection of wallpapers available to you, and keep your home screen looking fresh!
