    New to iOS development, as well as Macs... so...

    So I started a new project. The first thing I tried to do is set a background image for all views. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this without adding a UIImageView to each view separately, which seems redundant.

    The thinking here is that I can set a background image that all views will inherit, then if I want to change it I don't have to do it for each view.

    How do I accomplish this, or does it just not work this way?

    There is no concept of an application background. Depending on your application/view structure you might be able to achieve something similar. For example if all the view controllers inherit from a common base class it can create the UIImageView programatically solving your issue (if the views you layer above it have transparent backgrounds).
