    Oh no! Good question but unfortunately not a very simple answer. It looks like whoever made the wallpaper has not updated it to support the latest resolution on the newer phones. Basically the resolution on the new phones is higher than the old ones meaning there are more pixels on the screen. Pictures, which is what a wallpaper is, is made up of pixels. The pixels on the picture need to match the pixels on the display for everything to match up. I hope that helps!

    You're either using the wrong view for wallpaper, or you're in Standard view but reduce motion is off.
    There's standard view and zoomed view. Set in Settings > Display and brightness.
    The other issue with reduce motion is odd. Turn reduce motion on and see if the wallpaper gets normal. You may need to add it on again. I haven't yet figured that little glitchy thingy out.

    Ok. I was in Standard view and all was well. I turned reduce motion OFF, and all was well. But when I added a new wallpaper, it looks like this.

    So I turned reduce motion on, and it's still a little off.


    Added the wallpaper again and it's fixed.

    Pretty sure this is related to the Parallax Effect. You either need reduce motion on. Or use a larger size wallpaper. Like 2662x2662. That's square. I'll dig some more.
