iPhone 5 Wallpaper Pack

Here we are again, another new Apple device and another new screen resolution to accommodate. There has been some obvious debate over the new screen size but I for one am loving the long format, it does allow a bit more screen real estate without sacrificing a comfortable feel in the hand. I hold the new phone more within my fingers rather than my palm so my thumb has more space to reach all areas of the screen but I have had no trouble using it with one hand. The feel and finish of it is pretty extraordinary, no one else on the market is making anything like this and to call it “just another iPhone” is pretty short sighted. I have a feeling that those holding that mentality are simply rebelling against the popularity of Apple in general which I can understand to some extent and of course I realize everyone has their own opinion.

How is it that for years now Apple has released laptop and desktop computers along a similar and gradual design evolution but we all expect a dramatic redesign every year with the iPhone? What would you expect it to be? A circle? Should it have mood detection and texture mapping? When did we get so spoiled, entitled, or desperate for something new all the time? Doesn’t it exhaust you never being happy with a piece of tech for more than one year? Haha, OK I digress, this has nothing to do with why you are here today, we are here to celebrate the new iPhone 5 display so lets see what we have here…

Before we get to the images I need to make things as clear as possible this go round. The terms of use can be found in a link below or in the navigation to your right, simple, plain terms. In the past with these packs I have had people take advantage of the wallpapers being in one place and discover fairly rampant theft of the images that are thrown on other ad driven sites to make a quick buck with little to no consideration of their origin. That said, here are a few simple guidelines.

• Never re-host full resolution images without permission from fiftyfootshadows.net
• Please refrain from linking directly to images, simply link back to this page.
• These images are provided for your personal use only as digital wallpaper.
• Do not make any physical reproductions of these without permission. (A shop is coming!)
• This include posting them on Instagram and pretending you took the photo with your iPhone ;)
Screenshots are fine, I encourage you to share with others in this way, I just ask that you help me out by linking back to 50ft.

Thats it! Simply read the Terms for more details and thank you so much for your understanding and support! I do my best to make 50ft as great as I can make it and it would be impossible without the support of you guys. I have an exciting roadmap lined up for the site and while I know things move slowly at times around here it will only get better in the future.

I did my best to prepare a well rounded selection of images. If you have a favorite that I left out let me know and I will see what I can do to add it to the collection. Every wallpaper from here on will be cropped to the new format. It will work with older models of iPhone as well, of course. You may also notice a few new images hiding in there that I have not made a dedicated post for yet. Just a little something fresh for you. Check back here in case any others get added from the past, otherwise I will see you here in the future for plenty more great imagery.

    Lovely pictures indeed, thank you very much. The one named Patience, is that one available as a regular desktop?

  9. John carey - September 28, 2012 at 1:20 am

    Happy to hear everyone is enjoying them, I will do my best to add new ones that have been requested as soon as I have the chance. Also, Johan, those images are only available here for now not will have a propor post in the coming couple of weeks I hope.

    Thanks again everyone!

  10. Adam - September 29, 2012 at 1:15 am

    Love these! They’ll be among the first things to go onto my iPhone 5 once I finally get it.

    Would love to see the shots from the winter pack make their way into the new format. Was just getting ready to use them on my iPhone 4…

  11. Luis - September 29, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    Awesome photos, thanks so much! Also, are those Alessi watches? I really like them!

  12. Khürt Williams - September 29, 2012 at 6:40 pm

    @John, I kept this page bookmarked for a week while I waited for my iPhone 5. My favorites are “going home” and “road side”. Thank you.

  13. Tim Burner - September 29, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    These are great wallpapers, thanks. I also found interesting the “Frames” on this website: http://www.myiphone5wallpaper.com

    They look great for use on the Home screen.

  14. Paul Anthony Webb - September 29, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Oh sweet, thanks a lot of updating these! I got my iPhone 5 on launch day. :D

    hey guys, here is some promo codes for the new iphone 5 wallpaper app called SKINZ

    you can see their screenshots here http://goo.gl/sE79V

  26. john - October 9, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Really? I suppose this is relevant topic wise and I am not quick to delete comments but why troll around here with this? And where are these promo codes?

    Please don’t poke your head in here and lie to people visiting again. Makes you look sketchy at best… Thanks!

  27. john - October 9, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    Tim, I think the frames type wallpapers are kind of cool too, I remember when people would hack their original iPhones back in the day to accomplish this sort of effect! But…

    I don’t understand how so many of my photos are listed on this site without receiving permission. This is exactly what I was talking about above, a mass grab of my photographs which were pasted up on another site to make a few dollars in add links. I really don’t appreciate it.

  28. sanvy - October 9, 2012 at 9:20 pm

    Love your wallpapers here: http://www.ilikewallpaper.net/iPhone-5-wallpapers, I have share some of your wallpapers and make link to your site fiftyfootshadows for review.

  29. john - October 9, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    …Sanvy, would you mind not posting my images at full resolutions with no credit on this clearly ad supported for profit site? Thanks.

  30. asca - October 10, 2012 at 4:12 am

    The watch is what brand?

  31. john - October 11, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Thanks for the amazing iPhone 5 Wallpapers ! Which Camera and Kit are you using !
    Having Nikon D5000 with default Kit. I want to upgrade the gadgets and myself ! I love macro and Landscape and Portrait. Love to shoot Textures as well !

    Can you Suggest me a Good Lens. I am using very rarely – but love to shoot more natural Images.

  45. John Carey - December 7, 2012 at 12:32 am

    Sri, happy you enjoy the photos, plenty more around the site to explore as well. While I am not always the fastest to respond, an email is the best place for questions like this about gear, I would be happy to write more as I have time so use the contact link and say hello any time.

  46. Georg - January 21, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    So beautiful photos :) Your desktop wallpapers are very beautiful too (found your site via Gnome 3 Desktop themes published on DeviantArt ;-)). A low-fi version would be cool (e.g for my Huawei Ascend Y)…I would make and publish them by myself with a proper backlink to your site but your ToS forbid me to do it.

    Btw, did you make this wordpress theme by yourself or is it public? I woud love to use it :D

  47. Mark - January 29, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Hi John, that’s really an amazing work – indeed fine screenshots, colors, light and contrast truly magnifies each photo shot. Thanks for sharing the wallpapers – will surely glitter on iPhone :)

    Very good info. Lucky me I ran across your site by accident (stumbleupon).

    I have book marked it for later!

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net.

Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
