Tip: Make a Wallpaper Out of Your Panorama in iOS 7 Beta

iPhone 5 camera

Here’s a very cool tip. It turns your panoramic shots into a wallpaper on iOS 7. Maybe this doesn’t seem like a big deal, but the really cool thing about it is that you can turn your iPhone and the image will pan through, making something of a moving background.

Our friends over at CultofMac have it down.

You just go to your settings in iOS 7 beta and select Brightness & Wallpaper. Go to “Choose Wallpaper” and scroll down to your photos. You should see a “My Panoramas” option. Choose your image and take a look at the preview. If you hold the iPhone up, you can turn (just the way you do when taking a panorama) and you can see through the entire shot.

After that, tap “Set.” This will set it as your background. As with any image, you can choose for it to be your lockscreen, homescreen or both. Go with whichever option you like here. It’s pretty cool.

In case you need help installing iOS 7 beta, here’s how.
