I seem to always be drawn to lots of blues and greens this time of the year (I realized that when I looked at last year's January freebies). But, this year, there's also a splash of red with my favorite bird, the cardinal. See the quote, blank, and calendar versions of these Free Winter Wallpapers and Screensavers below.

Is your phone ready for a little seasonal pick-me-up? Maybe your computer is looking a little blah after all the holiday fun? Be sure to give them a quick makeover with this January edition of wallpapers. This year, I've added in the iPhone 12 sizes, too, but I kept all of the other sizes I've already offered.

The sweet little cardinal peeking through the greenery just makes me smile.



Free January Calendar Printable
Today's free winter wallpapers and screensavers were inspired by my new January Calendar Printable (pictured above). I also included a blank version of this calendar, in case you'd like to save a bit of ink.  


Winter Wallpaper Designs

Below are all of the designs for this month, as displayed on the computer versions. The tablet and phone designs are basically the same, but the orientation differs from device to device. 
Computer Wallpaper with Cardinal
The blank design, pictured above, is always the most popular. It allows for plenty of "screen space" for all of your apps and icons. 

Inspiring Desktop Wallpaper
And I think we all can agree...it's definitely time for a fresh start. 

Free Desktop Wallpaper Calendar
The calendar design, due to size limitations, is only available for the computer and tablet wallpapers. 


Downloading onto an iPad or iPhone

Shortly after I started this free wallpaper series a couple of years ago, a number of readers reached out and asked for download help using your iPad or iPhone. I thought I'd share my own method for that (the way I do this is kind of cheating, but the fact that it's crazy-easy makes that completely fine fine). My 13-year-old calls this a very "unofficial" way to do this...he is actually my resident IT (I wish I were kidding, but he's definitely more technologically savvy than his mom).
  • Before I start the process on my phone or tablet, I download my particular device's wallpaper design onto my actual computer (download links are available below). I then email myself that file (I have gmail and it allows me to email to the same address I'm sending from). If you'd prefer to skip the whole emailing yourself process, you'll need to download the Dropbox app on your device (I provide all of the download links for these wallpaper designs within Dropbox for this very reason). I like to send readers to a fantastic tutorial on this Dropbox downloading method here on the iDownload Blog. But, again, if you'd like to avoid that, just email yourself the image from your computer and open the email on your phone. Then, follow the below steps:
    • Open that email that you sent yourself (with the wallpaper attachment) on your device's mail app. At the bottom of your email, you should see the words "Tap to Download". Go ahead and do just that.
Changing Wallpaper on an iPhone

    • Tap on the image you downloaded within the email (it should appear at the bottom of the email). The above image (on the left) is what you should see. Tap the square box outline with the upward arrow in the bottom left corner of your screen (labeled as 1 in the above image).
    • After you've tapped the box, the screen pictured above right should appear. Tap 'Save Image' (labeled as 2 in the above image). Your design should now be saved to your device.
  • Go to the HOME screen on your iPhone. Then, head to Settings>Wallpaper>Choose a New Wallpaper.
  • On my own phone, my images automatically save to my Camera Roll (I *think* this is the default on most iOS devices like iPhones and iPads). I select Camera Roll and then I find the wallpaper that I just downloaded. If your device saves elsewhere, you'll need to search that place for the download, instead.
  • Feel free to set this new wallpaper design to your lock screen, your home screen, or go a little crazy and do both. It'll be a wonderfully wintery time on your device!
  • That *should* hopefully do the trick for you. Let me know if you have any questions regarding this method.

Download Your Free Winter Wallpapers and Screensavers:

Below the following image, I have listed out all of the links to download your wallpapers. Please note that while I don't create wallpapers specifically for Android devices, many of the iPhone sizes will work on various Android models. Feel free to play around with them. Also, I'm using a new method for downloads this year (my old method is actually being dissolved by the platform that carried it). Please let me know if this is too confusing...I know it's a lot of links, so I tried to break them up a bit.

  7. WOW! This wallpaper is stunning! I accidentally made a chart I created into my background, and then I remembered it was time for a new wallpaper anyway, and came looking for this one. Thank you so much! I love it!
