SOLVED: This bug was fixed in the 8.9.0 release.
Wattpad is experiencing an issue on iOS where when uploading a cover, the cover is being cropped into a square. We know how hard you work on your covers, and we want to get this fixed as soon as possible!
Our team is currently investigating this issue, so please bear with us while we get to the bottom of this! In the meantime, you can upload your cover with the correct dimensions on the web version (www.wattpad.com) of Wattpad, under Write in the navigation bar. Please note this is only available on desktop web, not mobile web.
Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. Further details on this fix will appear in this article
We apologize for the inconvenience this causes but hang tight, we are working towards resolving this.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
The Wattpad Team
