I grew up in Wisconsin (aka one of the coldest, snowiest states in America) and while I love living in San Francisco now because those winters were brutal, I still love the vibey winter magic. Everything just looks extra beautiful during wintertime.
And sometimes I like to extend that aesthetic wintertime magic to my phone’s home screen. So I gathered all the best and totally FREE winter wallpapers for your phone ( iphone or Android!) Just screenshot or right click and download these to save.
90+ Best Aesthetic Winter iPhone Wallpapers That Are Totally Free
If you’re looking for Christmas winter iphone wallpapers, I have a whole other blog post with tons of collections of photos just all about that holiday magic you should check out. I’ll include a few here, but mostly these winter backgrounds are focused on Jan – March scenes.
Use them to kick off the New Year, Valentine’s Day, or just fuel your wanderlust to somewhere in the mountains covered in snow…. these are some cool winter wallpapers iphone lovers will adore (and yes, that’s kind of a bad pun there).
Winter Pine Trees Scenic Iphone Wallpapers
One of my favorite times of day is sunrise after a big snowstorm before the sun heats up the world. You’re left with all the pine trees and houses covered in snow, it looks like a true winter wonderland.
I actually spent all this year renovating an old cabin up in the Sierra Nevadas (check it out on Airbnb here!) and we lucked out on a few magic mornings like this. One day in particular, the snow didn’t melt from the branches until around 10am.
All the pine trees were blanketed in white and I ran around our yard taking photos, making snow angels and giggling like a little kid. If you also want to channel that feeling, you’ll love these free winter scene wallpapers for your phone!
Aesthetic Cozy Winter Iphone Wallpapers
Maybe you’re more into the cozy cabin vibe. I get it, that’s why I bought a cabin in the mountains with a fireplace – so I could put on jammies, burn a pine candle, make a cup of hot chocolate and get cozy under a blanket. If that’s your vibe, try these free wallpapers for your phone lock screen and background.
Aurora Borealis Wallpapers
This scene feels like what I once saw on a screen. I searched aurora borealis green…
Taylor Swift aside, the aurora borealis are a winter bucket list thing to see that I have yet to have the pleasure of witnessing (one day I’ll make the trek up to Norway or Alaska to see them!) Until then, I’ll live vicariously through all these aurora borealis iphone wallpapers.
Snow On The Beach Wallpapers
Ok, now I have Taylor’s songs stuck in my head so I just had to gather some pretty snow on the beach photos for all my fellow Swifties to use. It’s weird but fucking beautiful and makes a dang good iphone wallpaper background.
Cute Winter Wallpapers Iphone
Puppies playing in the snow? Adorable winter patterns and illustrations? Sometimes a girl just needs a cute winter wallpaper that matches our phone color scheme for our backgrounds.
Winter National Parks Backgrounds
If you’re a hiker or outdoor lover, try one of these state and national park wallpapers for your phone to inspire you to visit these gems in person one year!
Winter City Iphone Wallpapers
New York City covered in snow? Sitting on a hotel in Paris with Effiel Tower views while it’s snowing? That’s even better. I love winter urban landscapes, especially if you are manifesting a trip or a move to one of these cities.
New Years Resolution & Quote Wallpapers
If you already have your word of the year picked out, or a resolution then it’s best to pop that into Canva and download it for your phone so you can see it every day. But if you’re on the hunt for a good quote wallpaper for motivation, or trying out goals, these are some of my favorite winter ones.
Valentine’s iPhone Wallpapers
Hey, I had to sneak a few of these in here! Valentine’s Day is in the wintertime, after all. I’ll do a whole separate post later with more ideas but I love these ones.
Christmas iPhone Wallpapers
Again, I have a whole post with more Christmas wallpapers, but these were some of my favorites.

Snow falling, winter vignettes, holiday glam – there’s a lot of small little moments that are super aesthetic and make perfect iphone backgrounds. These are some of my favorites!
Free Winter Screensavers For Desktop
Some of the best winter backgrounds are actually for your computer. Or Zoom backgrounds! If you love to also customize your work space, I gathered some horizontal winter desktop screensavers to use. They’re also free!
I hope this helps you find the perfect free aesthetic winter iphone wallpaper to get you in the season spirit!
