Summer is on it’s way and I want all things warm-weather around me! Summer wallpaper for my iPhone is my special favorite. Even when it isn’t quite summer outside, summer wallpaper on my iPhone never fails to make me happy.
There are so many different vibes of summer, so there are of course just as many summer wallpaper options!
From lemons to flowers to vintage California sunsets, I really love it all, so I included a bit of everything.
My hope is that these summer wallpaper options for your iPhone will make you happy every time you see your phone!
How To Save A Summer Wallpaper For iPhone:
These summer wallpaper options are super easy to save to your iPhone! They should work for most smartphones; don’t worry if you need to crop the image a bit.

Now, go into your settings and you can change your lock screen, your home screen, or both.
Feel free to save as many options as you’d like and try them out all at once! Sometimes a wallpaper option will look slightly different once you actually try it out. Enjoy!
