New iPad wallpapers coming with the release of iOS 5.1

According to a find by Mark Gurman over at 9to5Mac, Apple will refresh the stock iPad wallpapers when it eventually gets round to releasing iOS 5.1 to the public. iOS 5.1 is currently in its second beta phase and as there is no sign of a Gold Master release we have no idea when it will become available to all.

The latest iOS 5.1 beta 2 reveals four new wallpapers for the iPad. These are pictures of water lapping a sandy beach, long dew laden grass, water rings and a calm ocean view. The new wallpapers are only included in the iPad version of iOS 5.1 beta 2.

Many are speculating that that these wallpapers could be for the iPad 3; which is set to be released early next year. Of course the resolution of the new wallpaper is currently 1024 x 768 and not the Retina size we are expecting with the next generation iPad.

Go get them via the source link below.

New iPad wallpapers coming with the release of iOS 5.1


We're expecting a retina ipad now? It'd be nice (ok..really nice), don't get me wrong, but that's still on the desired list for me. Not really expecting it yet.

There have been several new apps this month for " live" wallpapers on the lock screen. I haven't tried them yet but will. Don't listen to macboy74. It's your iPhone.
