As usual, Apple has crafted new high-resolution wallpapers to release along with the latest version of iOS. While iOS 9 is expected to launch in September, the wallpapers have just arrived in developers' hands with iOS 9 beta 5. The firmware was seeded to developers last Thursday, while public beta testers are now at iOS 9 beta 3. Altogether there are 15 new iOS 9 wallpapers, some of which replace existing wallpaper selections found in iOS 8.
Anyone looking to download the new iOS 9 wallpapers for iPhone can grab them at 2208 x 1242 resolution from user BobbyJindal on Imgur. This link was posted by iphonehacks.com after Fabiano Confuorto at iSpazio leaked the iOS 9 wallapers.
The new, colorful backgrounds for home or lock screens on the iPhone have mostly dark tones. Themes include feathers, planets, other natural patterns and colorful freeze-frame explosions of color. When it comes to the public release of iOS 9, this major update will include hundreds of optimizations and features such as email annotation, low power mode, and app thinning.
Public beta program participants running iOS 9 beta 3 can get the latest developer beta now. Click here for instructions on how to update to iOS 9 beta 5.
