Here at Geeknaut, we are big fans of having a lot of wallpapers on our device so that we change them at any time. You just bought a New iPad with retina display and want to change its background. We have looked for and found 60 best retina wallpapers that will roch your New iPad.
Your old iPad wallpapers obviously won’t look good on the new iPad because of the huge resolution difference. The native resolution of iPad is 2048×1536px but in order for the images to look just as decent in the landscape mode, they have to be 2048x2048px.
All the pictures below are 2048x2048px so these will look great in portrait as well as landscape mode. These retina wallpapers are optimized for the New iPad but should work on old generation iPads too.
Without further ado, here is the list of 60 HD high resolution wallpapers for your new device.
You can click on the wallpaper to download full, high resolution version or you can right-click (secondary click on Mac) and then click “Save Target As…” or “Save Link As…” depending on what browser you use.
If you are viewing this on the iPad, you can tap on the images to open and then save them. Don’t long-press and save the images as that will download only the thumbnail.
You might be also interested in checking out designer iPad cases, DIY iPad stands and cool iPad cases. If you own an iPhone 4 or or 4s, you might also like retina wallpapers for iPhone 4 too. If you are looking for some protection for your new iPad, you should check cool new iPad cases too.

If you want to download even more, don’t forget to check InterfaceLift’s page for New iPad wallpapers. You can also find ones on iLikeWallpaper.

We tried to include only the best ones here. We might have missed you favorite, in which case you can leave us a comment below. You can also Like us on Facebook or Add us to your Google Plus circles and we will keep you posted with even more backgrounds.
I noticed that if you open the images using your ipad(safari), the images are downsampled to 1024×1024. So if you save them, that´s the resolution you´ll have.
They work pretty fine for me.
Its a flaw in Apple’s iPad Safari. Use your PC to download them and send them to you iPad via sync or email
Hey it saya in there up on the top that you have to open the picture to save it as 2048*2048, read the whole instruction before you complain
These are NOT retina resolution.
They are 2048×2048 at 72 ppi.
Per Apple’s site:
2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi)
So to work for landscape/portrait it would need to be:
2048-by-2048-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi)
PPI means pixels per inch. 264 is the number of pixels 1 inch of New iPad screen has. If you put a 2048-by-2048-pixel onto a 9.7 inch display, it will have 264 pixels per inch too.

That’s not how resolution works… PPI is totally irrelevant. All that matters is the pixel count, i.e. 2048×2048.
It has to be ‘s Hertogenbosch instead of shertogen Bosch
Images are 2048×2048. Dl’d with atomic browser, confirmed in photogene.
Thanks a lot, a very nice colection.
I noticed these wallpapers also work very well on my Nexus 7 tablet.

I want to give this iPad third-generation to my husband and I would like to buy the newest iPad. I am afraid however that I will get the same service that I have gotten with this iPad. You have one employee that I have talked to over the phone and he is fantastic but you also have some employees that Are not very bright. The person that I have been talking to that is very smart his name is Eddie. He only works a certain amount of hours however and I have been playing phone tag with him. If anyone can fix it I think he could. He would at least know what the eyeball is on the front of the iPad. For the last time it is on every iPad in the store. When we showed the employee
and said this eyeball This eyeball that you see. It is an app on the front of the iPad with the rest of the apps.
