Winter is definitely the longest season up here in New England, so we just have to embrace it fully. I’ve really started to love a beautiful snowfall over the last few years and the way everything feels hushed and magical during the winter.
When I was looking for winter wallpaper for iPhone, I mostly found Christmas options. Don’t get me wrong: I love Christmas, but what about once the holidays are over?
In my book, January and February are the months to embrace the stillness of winter. Christmas is all about the hustle and bustle of the holidays and is filled with singing, presents, food, and clutter, but January and February show how magical the quiet part of winter can be.
My hope is that these winter wallpaper downloads for your iPhone will reflect that quiet magic that winter holds, regardless of the holiday season. Enjoy!

How to Save on the Phone:
Press and hold the photo that you want and click save to iPhone. This should work on Androids as well! Once you’ve saved the photo to your camera roll, you can go into settings and change your wallpaper.
How to Save on the Computer:
Right click and click save to desktop (or whatever folder you prefer). Once the photo is saved to your computer, you can go into settings and change your wallpaper.
Note: The sizing is slightly different on each phone and computer so you may have to crop these photos slightly to fit your phone. They should be close enough that you won’t lose much of the photo!
Winter Wallpaper For iPhone:
You’ll see a lot of quiet tree or field shots on here, either during or just after a snowfall. Although not many of us have the opportunity to see these spots during winter (especially city-folk like me), there’s something so peaceful about seeing a scene like this every time you open your iPhone. Don’t forget that this can be set as your lock screen, home screen, or both!
This city scene reminds me so much of New England and Boston. It’s old-fashioned and peaceful, but you still get a city vibe and know that this street will be bustling and busy in only a day or so.
I also included a bunch of close-up shots in this roundup, whether the winter wallpaper background is a snowflake, a tree branch, or simply a small piece of the sky.
Even though lights are always associated with Christmas, I think that lights (in the right way) remind me of winter magic just as much, as I included lots of photos with white lights (or pink lights in this case) in this winter wallpaper for iPhone roundup.
This background is plain but sweet if you’re the kind of person who needs a crisp background in order to find apps.
This photo is obviously photoshopped, but I absolutely love it. It reminds me so much of January and February, and is peaceful and natural yet magical.
This is a modern city-scape that captures New York City perfectly during a snowstorm. As much as I love quiet woodsy winter photos, there is something really cool about how an entire city will quite literally shut down during a snowstorm. I included plenty of other city-scapes as well (mostly during stormy days) so keep scrolling if this is your vibe!
