I'm creating some wallpapers for an iPad mini retina. I'm confused at the resolution size. 2048x1536 is what they say use. But most I see are square 2048x2048. Could someone enlighten me on this, as I don't have an iPad. Thanks!

Since wallpapers on the iPad rotate to landscape and portrait orientations, the wallpaper needs to be 2048 x 2048 to provide full coverage of the screen in both modes.
