Anyone who knows me in real life would tell you I’m a bit of a wallpaper nut when it comes to my iPhone and iPad. While I can normally get my fix via Google image search, that sometimes doesn’t cut it. Sometimes I come across a photo that isn’t sized correctly. Luckily, as long as you know iPhone wallpaper size, or iPad for that matter, Pixelmator can help you create a perfectly sized wallpaper in no time.
When OS X Mountain Lion came out, we found out that there were 43 hidden high-resolution images included as part of the screen saver system: nature images from National Geographic, aerial images, images of the cosmos, and patterns in nature, to name a few.
It turns out that the same images are hiding in Mavericks, too, just in a different–maybe more accessible place.
In all the hubbub yesterday, it’s possible you missed the most exciting iPad news of all: Apple has given the iPad Air and iPad mini an incredible new wallpaper!
We kid, of course, but featuring a lovely blue gradient, the new wallpapers are rather nice. With the iPad Air and iPad mini not shipping until November, though, you can only see it in Apple’s new iPad ads… or download it from us!
Redditor corvettevan has been collecting parallax wallpapers for use with iOS 7’s new visual feature for a little while now, and he decided to put up a Tumblr blog to archive them all and make them available to you for download.
While we showed you how to make your own parallax-flavored wallpapers for your iPhone or iPad, this is a much faster way to get some cool stuff on your iPhone that didn’t already come with the iOS 7 download.
The images are pretty cool: there’s nature, space, music, science fiction, and–of course–the obligatory girls in bikinis. Here are a few we liked.
In iOS 7, the background behind your Home screen apps is just a little bit 3D-ish, moving slightly as you twist and turn your iOS device around. Personally, I figured it was some fancy special effect that only Apple could create, but I was wrong.
