Wallpapers of the week: starred night sky

By , Feb 9, 2014

starred sky wallpaper splash wotw

Another post arrives in the Wallpapers of the Week section, as the calendar turns to another Sunday. Last week, we posted Apple’s newest teaser wallpaper which debuted in their Valentine’s Day advertisement for iPad Air. As the wallpaper was pink, it seems our hyper masculine readership did not take very well to the selection.

Considering the small rebellion, today the wallpapers are photo images, which is a complete break from any Apple replicated gradient images. We try to monitor the sentiment of readers through the comment section. If you want to help direct the wallpapers, keep the comments coming, but we rely on positive comments too…

Wallpapers

The starry night sky is one of nature’s most beautiful wonders. The following wallpapers capture the essence of vibrance and color. Using photographs as wallpapers will create depth to your flat Home screen. Below are links to full parallax versions of each image.

To download these images, tap the corresponding device name below the picture. Once the full resolution loads, tap hold and save the image to Camera Roll. From either Photos.app or Settings.app, set the image as wallpaper. From a desktop, simply save the full image to the iTunes sync folder.

Submitting

As always, please feel free to pass me your best wallpaper selections. Catch up with me on Twitter @jim_gresham, or send them embedded into an email to jim@idownloadblog.com. I always take a look at what comes in and base it on the images I found across the web during any given week.

  • David

    Is there a tweak that can turn my CC flat like in an iphone 4? Because on 4s it lags sometimes. I want to enable the “increase contrast” feature but only for CC, anyone have the solution??

    • Mohammed Sahib

      Parallax enablur can disable blur in the whole os though, not only CC. I guess u can use hidden settings 7 to manually do it, but I’m not sure.

  • Noah Mospan

    Great pictures as always, keep it up :)

    That awkward moment when the Wallpapers of the Week are actually good for a change.

  • Sam Khan

    Anyone tried it on iPad air 7.1 B5? When you try to use this as a wallpaper from camera roll it takes you to the printer menu.
    P.S I know its beta so no need to tell me about that!
