The first beta of iOS 8 comes with a really nice default water wallpaper of an underwater camera shot, it appears to be sun or light rays shining through the calm surface waves of an ocean. It looks absolutely fantastic on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and even if you aren’t running the latest iOS 8 beta release you can still enjoy it on your iOS device (or Android, no judgements) by downloading the high resolution versions.

Click on the smaller thumb nailed images below to download the full sized and appropriate resolution version in a new window. The full sized images are hosted on a third party site (thanks iClarified!) so it may take a moment or two to download them. Let us know if the links stop working for whatever reason and we’ll find a different source to share them through.

Because these wallpapers are from the first beta of iOS 8 they may change to a different version when iOS 8 actually ships this fall.

If you want to use the wallpaper on a desktop computer instead, go for the iPad version at 2048 pixels wide, it looks pretty good on most Macs and PC backgrounds.

Don’t forget to get the OS X Yosemite default wallpaper too, it’s equally gorgeous and looks amazing on any Mac or iOS device.
