How can I set the iOS 5 Springboard wallpaper to a different image than the lock screen wallpaper without jailbreaking? The answer may very well be "you can't." I just want to know for sure.


After going to the Wallpaper section from within Settings.app and choosing an image;

  • On the iPad, there are 'Set Lock Screen', 'Set Home Screen', and 'Set Both' buttons on the top of the screen while previewing the image.
  • On the iPhone, a menu pops up asking whether you'd like it on the Lock Screen or Home Screen, or Both, after tapping 'Set'.

  • Duh, I should have just tried it, I guess. Thanks. Dec 29 '11 at 22:46
