200+ Retina iPad Wallpapers for iPad 3


We received a positive response on our earlier article about iPad retina wallpapers and we have decided to showcase even more wallpapers for our readers/fans. The New iPad has an incredible display and a resolution of 2048×1536px. However, in order for wallpapers to look good in portrait as well as landscape mode, the backgrounds have to be 2048x2048px. All the wallpapers below are of that resolution. The pixel density of the Retina iPad is 264 PPI and the various wallpapers we have collected below will definitely look best on your retina iPad’s high resolution display.

To save these wallpapers, you have to go to each source and download them individually. There are a couple of sources that list a zip of all the wallpapers they have. Also, if you are checking these wallpapers from your iPad – there is a bug with the Safari browser that downsamples the wallpapers to 1024x1024px, If this is the case, make sure you visit from a computer and then sync the wallpapers using iTunes or iCloud.

In order to save the wallpapers, you can visit the image source and when the full-size image is open in your browser, you can tap on “Save Image” to save that wallpaper in your camera roll. If you are viewing from a computer, right click (secondary click on Mac) on the full-size retina wallpaper and then click “Save Image As…”. Afterwards, you can sync the folder using iTunes. Once the images are in your iPad, you should go to ‘Photos’ app and find your favorite background. Then tap on share icon and press “Set as Wallpaper” button. Enjoy this enormous collection of retina iPad wallpapers. You can also use DropBox to sync the wallpapers between your iPad and PC/Mac. If none of this works, you can email the wallpapers to yourself from your computer and then open the mail on your iPad.
