4 Ways To Make Your iPhone Wallpaper Change Automatically

Instead of looking at the same wallpaper on your iPhone every day, you can use Shortcuts or Focus modes to have them change automatically. You can look at specific wallpapers at specific times of the day, or have a random wallpaper or photo show each day.

    Great way to personalize your iPhone. I think I've set it up to show weather on the Home Screen at 7am We'll find out tomorrow!

    Thanks, Gary. Excellent explanation and fun! Could you do something like this shortcut on the Mac, especially with the moving wallpaper?

    Jeff: You can set the wallpaper on a Mac in a Shortcut, but there is no timed automations on a Mac like there is on an iPhone. You'd need a third-party app for that. But then you do have some better options for rotating the wallpaper in System Settings on a Mac. So maybe you don't need a Shortcut at all.

    Thank you for this video! Not only does it make it more fun to use my iPhone it also helps me appreciate Shortcuts more. One issue which may be out of scope, how do I crop/edit the photos in my Wallpaper album in my Photos app to fit more nicely as an iPhone wallpaper. For example, I have these great photos of Monument Valley but they are either too large or off center for my iPhone. Is there a trick to this or is it more hit and miss and is it easier to do this on my Mac or on my iPhone?

    Jonathan: I don't know of any trick to it other than to crop to roughly the ratio of your phone's screen.

    Your response to Gary Rosenzweig's comment is not exactly correct. Yes, one can rotate wallpaper on Mac with Ventura. However, that option does NOT exist on Mac with Sonoma. Otherwise, great tip--thanks!
