    I've been wanting this for a while. Every year I'm hopeful we'll get something like that.

    I'm not a fan of photographs and nature scenes as wallpaper... which unfortunately is 99% of what's out there these days. I prefer CGI, textures, and artsy, surreal, and/or minimalistic type backgrounds. I guess the search continues...

    Same. I’ve found some stunning images that look crazy cool on this display... they’re just not good for what I want in a wallpaper/background.

    Yep, this is why I can’t just take a picture myself and use that as a background. I want something that’s sort of abstract. If it’s a scene or a person, then it just bugs me that the icons disrupt the image. And unfortunately I don’t have the artist ability to create anything myself so I just have to rely on the generosity of the more fortunate! ☺️

    Looks great as lock screen and home screen wallpaper on my silver Xs Max, with Midnight Blue leather case :)

    Yeah I'm gutted about that to. I like the new Live Wallpapers on the XS, XS Max, for a Lock Screen wallpaper, but I don't like them at all for a Home Screen wallpaper.

    The one I used to have on my iPhone X for most of the year, was the pink and blue Live Wallpaper. Would love to have it back for the Max.

    Might not be the exact resolution but I like https://alpha.wallhaven.cc when I need a change in background on my PC and other devices. I think it use to be called wallbase or something like that.

    Now that you have the biggest out there, you should get a few that have the outline of all the other flagship phones that your Max dwarfs. Then, if you know you're about to meet up with someone who owns one of those flagships, you can pull yours out & point out how much smaller theirs is than yours by the outline....but before you show them, tell them you took a photo of a chalk-outline around the corner, of something your X Max just killed...:eek:

    The hunt is definitely on. So far I’ve just used photos of mine and zoomed in. Some look better than others.

    Thanks everyone for the links!

    Just collected these over last year or so and most seem to look fine on my XS Max - I didn't make them but I enjoy them :D

    I'm the same, also think that wallpapers on iOS are nowhere near as nice as they are usually just covered up by 24 icons or folder. I really wish the makers of the most 'personal' phone in the world would let us actually personalise it!

    Here are some of my favourites.......

    I’m a sucker for stock wallpapers. I know some might say it’s blasphemy but I really dig the OnePlus wallpapers created by the talented designer Hampus Olsson- all wallpapers from every single OnePlus phone release is available on his blog:
    http://hampusolsson.com/

    The current ones from the OnePlus 6 looks amazing on the Max.

    Those kind of wallpapers are my favorites. Ones that are a bit abstract and the ones that are blurry (I loved the live wallpapers from the iPhone X retail boxes).

    Another tip is the app Vellum. Also many great wallpapers in that app.

    Anyone find any live or dynamic wallpapers out there? I'm puzzled why Apple only includes a few of them on each phone, I'd gladly pay to have more choices.

    And this one is my wallpaper/home screen:

    Anyone can use his blueprint images as a starting place and build wallpapers that include pixel precise elements (good for abstract arty wallpapers.

    Now, I can create vector versions of his templates and have properly prepared precise pixel perfect pics! :)
