While assigning a photo to contact is pretty simple, there might be some accompanying issues. Like, instead of a fullscreen view, the photo is shown in a small circle. There are some tricks to make contact picture full screen on your iPhone in iOS 14. So, if you want to get a full-screen iPhone caller photo, here is how you can do it.
How to Make iPhone Caller Photo Full Screen
Step #1. Open the Contacts app and select the contact.
Step #2. In the contact’s information, tap on Edit from the top-right corner.
Step #3. Tap on Add Photo or Edit Photo
Step #4. Select the Camera icon to click a picture or All Photos for an image from the library.
Step #5. Choose the Album, search, and tap on the image.
Step #6. Move and scale the photo to fit the circle and tap on Choose.
Step #7. Select the preferred filter and then tap on Done.
And that’s it, next time the contact calls you, iPhone should show a fullscreen image of the contact.
For best and assured results, you should select an image with a portrait orientation. While many also suggest cropping the image or a screenshot, but these tricks are a hit or miss.
To Make Existing Contact Picture Full Screen on iPhone
Steps #1. Open Contacts app → Contact → Edit.
Steps #2. Tap on the picture and then Edit.
Steps #3. Here, select Edit from the options.
Step #4. Move or scale the photo and tap on Choose.
Note: Basically, you need to change the position of the image enough for the phone to register the change.
Step #5. Select a filter and tap Done.
And this should do the trick. The issue with the trick is that you might have to do this a few times, to achieve the result.
Additionally, you will have to repeat the process for every contact that does not show a fullscreen image for incoming calls. So, that can be a real pain.
This mix-up started way back with the iOS 8 update. And somehow Apple hasn’t come around to find a permanent or feasible solution. So, yes, as irritating as it might be, these are the only solutions to get full-screen pictures for iPhone calls.
