Change iPhone home screen wallpaper to blank/black in iOS4

Having just updated my iPhone 3GS to iOS4, one of the new features is the ability to set a custom home screen wallpaper, problem is the upgrade defaults to setting the home screen wallpaper to the same as your lock screen wallpaper.

I might be alone on this one, but I really don’t want anything distracting behind all my iPhone app icons and Apple haven’t given you a way to revert back to a black wallpaper. You could simply cover your camera lens and take a dark photo and set that or instead, just click and hold on the image below to save it to your camera roll and set that as your homescreen wallpaper, problem solved.

  1. Thanks for the tip! Yes, I too want black wallpaper. Apple is getting too much, now that they’ve made so much money. I will never buy Apple in future anymore.

  2. Great tip!
    Trust me you are not alone on this one. I wonder why Apple changes the wallpaper after the software update.
