yea I liked the older ones. shouldn't be hard to find but now will have to keep them in your photos folder rather than wallpapers.

They're all online yes, but you can't find the best resolutions for the parallax effect. The stars will always look blurry compared to the ones included with the software when using parallax.

Hey there,

Just updated to iOS 9 and can't find many of the older wallpapers from previous iOS versions.

For example the space wallpaper which is one of my favorites (still activated)

Was this intended or went something wrong with my OTA update?

These are the worst wallpapers I have ever seen on an Apple device. All the good ones are gone. I want my old ones back. Anyone know where to download them. My wife hasn't updated yet. Can I save them some how?
There are many places that offer downloads of other iOS version wallpapers, some are even on macrumors. A Google search will show you

They should have at least kept the space ones, the new ones like the planets are rather boring compared to the zoomed in shots of Earth and the Moon. Does anyone have a archive of all iOS 7&8 wallpapers sized for the 6 Plus?
You know if they don't all the wallpapers building up over the years taking up space they could at least just have older ones just load from the web on demand akin to iCloud library.

I have updated my iPhone to iOS9 but those cool wallpapers (green wave) i have seen in promos are no where to be found... Have they been removed at the last minute or something?

That wave wallpaper was removed about 6 weeks back in the PB 3/DP 5 beta builds. Along with some iOS 8 wallpapers too. With some googling you can find them if you wanted to have them back.

Is there a way to extract the wallpapers from .ispw files?

I have been searching on Google for the iOS 8 wallpapers but I have not been able to find them for the iPhone 6 Plus.

Aren't you guys getting a little worked up for this? iOS native wallpapers are all over the Internet. Just Google image search for them.

Can't believe the wave wallpaper is just gone altogether. Been using it as my default since iOS 9 beta 1 dropped, thinking it was one of the coolest that Apple has had in years. More so shocked that it was in the beta and was scrapped for public release.
