    I have a problem with background images on iOS tablets with resolution higher than 1024px.

    The following case:

    I use a container with background images.
    On desktop: background-attachment: fixed;
    On tablet/mobile: background-attachment: scroll;

    On desktop and mobile it works fine.
    Only on tablets with a higher resolution (ipad pro, etc.)
    the background is pixelated.

    Here is the example page: http://i.curiopia.de/try/

    I use Generateblocks Pro. Latest version 😉

    Do you have any ideas how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance!


    Newer generations have a retina display.

    The Mini and Air are at 2048 x 1536.
    10.5″ Pro is at 2224 x 1668.
    11″ Pro is at 2388 x 1668.
    12.9″ Pro is at 2732 x 2048.

    Your image is only 1800 x 1200 and the iPad hasn’t been at 1024 x 768 since Gen 2.

    Your image isn’t a high enough resolution.


    @bryan Thanks a lot for your reply. Unfortunately thats not the solution. Even if i use a larger image (you´ll see it on the demo-page) – the problem still exist.

    The problem may be that the media-query for tablets are set to 1024px. The new tablets have higher pixels, so that the media-query of the desktop is taken. Thus the tablets use again background-attachment: “fixed” and not “scroll”. Then the distortion arises.


    I see—When turning my iPad horizontal, you are correct, there does appear to be a problem.

    Hi there,

    Try adding this media query to set the background attachment to scroll.

    @media (pointer:coarse) {
        /* styles for a touch device */

    It will detect any device that has limiting pointing accuracy which is generally the case with all touch enabled devices.


    Wohow!! @david it works!

    Thanks a lot!
    You made my day.

    I appreciate your support very much.

    Happy sunday!
