Hello Wattpadders!

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!

In the meantime, you can upload your cover with the correct dimensions on the web version ( of Wattpad, under Write in the navigation bar. Please note this is only available on desktop web, not mobile web.
