The iPhone models on the market and in use today vary in screen size. Apple used to have just the one size for its flagship phones but the demand for a larger screen eventually won out and now, you will see quite the variation in the screen size. Even iPhone models that are no longer receiving iOS updates are still in use and they further add to the screen size variation you see.
Most iPhones will be able to zoom/adjust/scale images fairly well and use them as a wallpaper but it’s a good idea to find the right-sized image or get it as close as possible to the right size.
