Wallpapers of the week: nature inspired Light Wind

By , Sep 15, 2013

Eddy Younan splash

We are creeping closer to the public iOS 7 release and the excitement is almost palpable. On Wednesday, we will all be able to get our greedy hands on Jony Ive’s latest software creation and, with it, a whole new list of excellent wallpapers. Actually, for the astute readers, we have already posted the entire list of Apple wallpapers that will be available in iOS 7.

This week is another in the growing installment of Wallpapers of the Week. In this section, we are excited to continually feature the works of our talented readership. Recently, lots of readers submitted excellent wallpapers and the next installments should continue to please. Inside the post, this week’s featured artist is Eddy Younan…

Wallpapers

Eddy is a UI and UX designer who is involved in iOS and OS X development, game development and, naturally, a big Apple fan and iDB reader. Using his previous skills, Eddy created “Light Wind” and “Midnight Meadow.” Both of these will look excellent under those transparent iOS 7 layers later this week. Make sure to give @eddyounan a follow to keep up with his latest.

A quick note, before moving on. As with all wallpaper posts, I post the resolutions submitted by the artist. Often, readers comment their concerns that an iPad version or iPhone 4 option is not listed. That is because the artist did not create that device as an option. So, start your new wallpaper folder and download the next two images.

Downloading

To get these new images on your iPhone, tap the corresponding description and let the full resolution image load. Once loaded, tap and hold the image, then save to Camera Roll. Finally, locate the newly saved images via Camera Roll or Settings > Wallpapers. Via desktop, load the full image, then right click and save to your iTunes sync folder.

Submitting

To continue the Wallpapers of the Week section, I need excellent submissions from the readers. If submitting an image, it will only be considered if the artist submits two different, original images that are formatted for either iPhone or iPad, but preferably both. To have your images considered please send me a download link on Twitter @jim_gresham or email them directly by embedding them in an email to jim@idownloadblog.com. Thanks for all of your great walls!

    • Michael Crabtree

      • abdullah575

        Read the last sentence !!

      • Michael Crabtree

        It is the same as posting, “I can’t wait for Mavericks to be released. iOS 7″.

      • Moi

        :D

      • Y2J

        You never but a period, so there’s only one sentence…

    • Taf Khan

      You don’t need a jailbreak for GM 7

  • Jason Duong

    I thought this one was pretty cool.

    • onebyone_

      The design is great, but the quality is poor, I think it was because the discuss compress the image quality to attach automatically (like facebook app).

    • illK†Δ

      It’s basically the stock iOS 5 wallpaper with some boxes..

      • Jason Duong

        no shit sherlock

      • illK†Δ

        Why would you want old design on a new phone? 0/10

      • Jason Duong

        Why do you even care what others like or not? My your own business.

  • Thiago Vaccaro

    iOS 7 standard wallpaper, looks pretty dope.

    • jacobkwright

      yes…this is the one i’ve been using for the past week!

    • Jarryd Richards

      I love aurora wallpapers :D

  • abdullah575

    This is the best wallpaper

  • Abdl

    Your greedy hands?? Lol

  • Danuel Carr

    Can we get an ipad specific wallpaper for once? I know not all the wallpapers sent in to you have ipad versions, but there must be some. Can you post at least one? I only ask because these blurred and gradient wallpapers cancel out the parallax effect, which stinks. :/

  • bloodshed

    i still prefer this

    • Jonathan

      Been my lockscreen for 3 days.

  • Rami Tabaa

    Great job Eddy! I’m looking forward for your future wallpapers ;)

  • leart za jmi

    traditional :)

    • Jonathan

      Sorry, old Apple logo.

      • leart za jmi

        Old logo? I use it for that, i love traditional look, i wrote it

      • Jonathan

        Fair enough. :)

      • leart za jmi

        Looks that you are big fan of ios 7 :)

      • Jonathan

        Very much so! I got my hands on every beta (and GM) as soon as I could. More so than iOS 7, Apple itself. I wish to work there after college.

      • leart za jmi

        I hope you have the chance to work there :D
        i am a senior designer now, and for me apple is the mother of advertising, so even for me apple is the best.
        saying that i am not sure that the ios 7 design is in the apple standart :S just my opinon anyway

      • Jason Duong

        Those app icons were designed by a 5th grader using Microsoft PowerPoint. lol wut.

      • leart za jmi

        yeah may your right to say so but you have to remember something, at apple are not stupid, they know what they’re doing, for example, ios 7 makes all the other operating systems looks old, this is not about only for desing, this is a bussines war :)

      • Jonathan

        We’re used to the outdated iOS, so no. Once we do get used to this, it will be the new standard for everyone
        That’s awesome you are a senior designer too!

      • leart za jmi

        some modest wallpapers, they are in the old style of ios anyway :)

      • Jonathan

        Love the 3rd one!

      • leart za jmi

        ok and here is one with your name in, always in old style :P
        Have a nice day
