    Hey there,

    I have updated my iPhone to iOS 9 and recognized that all the iOS 8 stock wallpapers are gone. I would love to have the wallpapers back without downgrading and jailbreaking the phone to access the wallpaper library. It would be absolutely awesome if anybody have the original stock iOS 8 wallpapers extracted from an IPhone 6. I know there are a lot versions out there but it would be great to have the real original ones.

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!!

    Best Regards

    I'm pretty sure I do. I'll check my computer when I get home from work.

    No prob! I still can't figure out why Apple removed some of these. The default iPhone 6 wallpaper was one of my favorites!

    Yeah me too. From what I've read on here, Apple removed the wave wallpaper from the final release of iOS 9 too, even though it was present in all the beta's. I managed to get the wave wallpaper from tigger or fire dept. If you don't already have it and you would like it, I can put it on here for you ?

    Thanks but I was never that wild about the original iOS 9 wallpaper. The colors were so intense that it made it difficult to see the icons on the home screen. It did look very nice with the iOS blur effect though!

    Could you or someone else upload the iPhone 6 Plus version of the mountain starry night wallpaper? I tried following this URL but the file isn't there anymore. Thanks.

    Thanks. I put them on my phone by just downloading then directly to photos and also emailing them to myself. I can't get my phone to look like this when it's in landscape though:

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

    That is the way I built them. I will build you a larger one when I get home this evening. Usually do not build for landscape view as Apple has done something unusual with the Plus that prevents me from building properly for landscape. But we will give it a try and see. I can not guarantee it will work and want you to be aware of it ahead of time.

    There's a bug with the 6+ series and all iPads since iOS 7 that causes any wallpaper made from your photo collection to not scale properly when the home screen is switched to landscape. The stock wallpapers all work fine. But, even if your photo is the exact same dimensions as the stock wallpaper, it STILL won't scale right if you set it as wallpaper. I've about given up on Apple ever fixing this bug. Quality control in their software seems to be a much lower priority in the post-iOS 6 era.

    Bug has been there since day one. Apple seems to have ignored this problem. Here is a 2592 x 2592 image. It may not work as the rotation will be the problem. But you can at least give it a try.

    At least you gave it a shot. Like MacDevil7334 and I stated, it is an Apple bug that has been there since the 6 Plus debut.
