Adding new wallpapers is easy. You can use your own images or have an app help you. Here's what we like to keep our iPads fresh.

What We Like
  • No ads

  • New wallpapers weekly

  • Wallpapers customized for iPad and iPhone

What We Don't Like
  • Cost. But they are adding new wallpapers each week, so it's hard to really complain.

The Iconfactory has been around a long time and their work speaks for itself. Not only do they make terrific apps, they love making new wallpapers. And it shows.

Use Your Own Photo

What We Like
  • Any image you’ve captured or created that means something to you will make a fantastic lock screen or home screen image.

  • You have complete control over images you make!

What We Don't Like
  • It can be hard to choose an image. (Remember, you can change your wallpaper at any time!)

  • Keyword search for images doesn't always return results you expect.

Many people like to look at a photo of friends, family members, pets, or a favorite place on an iPad lock screen or home screen. That makes sense, as the most personal wallpaper may be an image you capture or create. So, open the Apple Photos app and browse through your photo albums to select an image that means something to you, then set it as your wallpaper.

NASA Images

What We Like
  • Stunning images of space and Earth.

  • Nearly all images free for personal use.

What We Don't Like
  • May take a few tries to determine the appropriate size to select when downloading an image.

  • Some NASA images can be extremely large.

NASA provides a searchable site for photos from space and space-related images. Tap “Most Popular” to see some of the most iconic images, including photos of Mars, the entire planet Earth, or images from the moon landing. When you download an image, select from several sizes (e.g., small, medium, large, or original resolution). Almost all NASA content is not copyrighted and is available free for personal, non-commercial use.

What We Like
  • Easy to select background, adjust, and edit text.

  • Fairly basic for a paid app.

What We Don't Like
  • Very limited number of text box display options.

  • Can create similar images with free presentation tools.

SimpleScreen ($0.99) helps you create a wallpaper that includes your name and contact instructions that display on your lock screen. This may be helpful in the event you misplace your iPad Pro. A few of the options allow you offer a reward for the return of the device.

What We Like
  • Keyword search typically returns a solid set of relevant photos.

  • Many quality photos available.

What We Don't Like
  • No way to restrict results by image resolution or orientation.

  • May need time to scroll through search results.

Open Unsplash, type a search term, then browse through photos. When you find an image you like, tap it to see it full-screen, then tap the down arrow in the lower-right corner of your screen to save the image to your iPad. The Unsplash license lets you use any of these images for free.
