    Hello,

    Has anyone else had issues with iOS 8 on the 6+ blowing up wallpapers when switching to landscape?

    I have it in the proper resolution but it seems anything but Apple's own wallpapers that it zooms in when going to landscape mode making the wallpaper blurry. iOS 8 bug?

    What resolution are you using? You can't use 1920x1080. You probably need 1920x1920 images.

    iPhone 6 plus needs 1920x1920 wallpapers (or even higher because of parallax).

    That's the way it works.
    Set your wallpaper in portrait. When you go to landscape, it expands to fill in the left/right side. To do this it "zooms in".

    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to avoid that with custom wallpapers currently. I just tried again in case something had changed in the last update and I'd missed it, but even with a 1920x1920 image (no parallax) the phone takes its 1080x1920 portrait crop, then zooms in on that when you go to landscape mode. It's a bummer, and hopefully they'll fix it sooner rather than later (which shouldn't be hard, given that the included wallpapers work properly).

    EDIT: tried with 2208x2208 as well, in case it needed the rendered resolution, same deal.
