Make iOS 8 Automatically Change Your Device’s Wallpaper, Here’s How

Want to automatically change the wallpaper on your iPhone or iPad after set intervals or particular actions? An old age question really, and with plenty of answers, but if you’re running iOS 8, then read on after the break for details on how you can get that feature on your iOS device.

In order to achieve the above mentioned feat, you will need the services of the Wallmart jailbreak tweak.

iPhone 6

Wallmart is a no nonsense offering which is designed with a very simple purpose in mind; that is to automatically shuffle through your wallpapers after a set period of time, or after some defined action. To be precise, not only will it change your wallpaper after set intervals, but can be configured to swap a wallpaper every time you lock your device. Even better, the tweak supports Activator gestures as well, so any gesture defined via that nifty tweak can be used to quickly change your device’s wallpaper.


Wallmart can be set to change your wallpapers in order, or shuffle through them, mixing it up a bit every time. Often a slightly blurred effect to the wallpaper really makes the entire home screen or lock screen on the iPhone or iPad stand out, and Wallmart lets you achieve just that with the blur option found in the tweak’s settings page. Oh and the much hyped about perspective zoom can be enabled as well, or disabled, if you’d rather not go all 3D on your background.


Wallmart however is not the only solution to your automatic wallpaper changing needs, and as the tweak itself says on its page, "Wallmart is like WallCycler for iOS 8" with Wallmart being applicable to iOS 8 unlike the latter, which is iOS 7 compatible only.

Wallmart is compatible with iOS 8, and is available for free from the BigBoss repo in Cydia.
