    They're quite depressing looking, such a large contrast from last year. Just an observation. I guess this is the direction they went because vibrant geometric or paint wallpapers have been beaten to the ground.

    Edit: I must say, I really like the direction they took. Especially with the plants, it's unique.

    You can always add your own wallpapers :)

    I like the dark purple wallpaper. Haven't checked out the others, yet.

    I've been looking for a way to get access to the files but I can't find one. Apparently these images are in a root file which can only be accessed if it's jailbroken. :confused:

    If anyone could share the very first one (the violet starry one) for iPad, I would be deeply thankful.

    Is there a way to back up the previous iOS wallpapers? (As to use them in later iOSs?)

    ^ Other thank just downloading them from the internet? iOS 7's are all over the place. They usually just use a program to get the wallpapers off of the phone. Probably iFile or something.

    Btw, my great friend was able to take a screenshot so we can see it up close.

    The trees one looks great. But the mountains on the third one don't pair very well with my setup. I really like the mountain wallpaper that comes with the iPad, wish they'd adapt it for the iPhone.

    It's quite the change from iOS 7- you are spot on. It really stands out but in line with some of the questionable design choices for the iPhone 6 body.

    There's only a select couple that I like (the dark solar system and Earth outline); the rest are crap for me. Either too bright or too feminine.

    There are no new dynamic wallpapers? Unless this is a joke, in which case, I get it..

    It was, I just find it silly how apple introduced 1 dynamic wallpaper (in different colours) a year ago and we haven't seen a single new one since.

    Probably something they didn't really think would take off and seemingly it didn't so they haven't really bothered doing anything more with it.

    Much better than the iOS 7 wallpapers, thats for sure. They look very sleek and atmospheric I'd say :p

    Wouldn't it be cool to have a dynamic wallpaper that works like the opening flower on :apple: Watch? Or your location on earth? (In case you forget.) I'd love to see those integrated into iOS.

    Also, I'm assuming they have these dark wallpapers because they want to showcase iPhone 6 and it's black-friendly display. :D
