Apple tribute wallpapers

1 Infinite Loop

This weekend, Sebastien and I had the pleasure of traveling to Apple HQ with popular jailbreak dev, Filippo Bigarella (@FilippoBiga). We were all in Silicon Valley for JailbreakCon 2014 and decided on Friday to drop by 1 Infinite Loop in hopes of scoring some excellent garb from The Company Store. While we all successfully spent too much money in the store, the highlight was getting inside the secretive office building.

Sebastien posted a tweet asking for an invitation from anyone employed by Apple. Shortly after, we received a response from an avid iDB reader! Of course, I cannot mention his name here, but we fondly call him the “Mystery Man.” While dining at Caffè Macs (yes, we happened to see Sir Jony Ive), Mystery Man mentioned some of his favorite iDB posts are in the Wallpapers of the Week section! Honored to have met a fan, the following walls are sent out to you, Mystery Man, celebrating our recent visit to the Mothership…

Wallpapers

I offer the following Apple logo wallpapers to commemorate our trip. Representing the past, two older versions with 8-bits and the rainbow Apple logo. Contrasting, two modern wallpapers, one of the 5th Avenue store location and the second heralding the gold iPhone 5s.

Downloading

Downloading the full resolution is available through the dedicated link, below the respective image. Once the full resolution is populated, tap hold and save to the Camera Roll. To set the image as wallpaper, find it in either Photos.app or Settings.app. From a desktop computer, right click the image and save it to the iTunes sync folder.

Thanks so much to Mystery Man that let us into Apple HQ. Without him, I may have died a sad, sad man. Getting to eat a Caffè Macs and view the beautiful Apple campus was the highlight of my entire month-long trip to the Bay Area.

  • Taf Khan

    Colorizing the 8bit black and white logo wallpaper brings out the pixels in more detail.
