Space wallpapers splash

Having posted the Wallpapers of the Week for well over a year, certain trends become apparent to us. Popularity of images can be predicted and we try to stick to topics we know readers will enjoy. Of course, every now and then we need to vary from topic to topic. After all, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Not all wallpapers are created equal. What you see is what you get. And, any other cliche you can think of about imagery.

Today, however, we harken back to a topical wallpaper post theme, made popular by several other previous posts. Focusing today on space, is not a new trend, but a popular version by way of social shares. Step inside for details, downloads and backlinks.

Space and Galaxy Wallpapers

We featured space focused wallpaper imagery previously and it proved quite popular. Before downloading today’s offering, take a look back through some of our previous selections: Interstellar; galaxy creation; stars and moons; and galaxy wallpapers.

The options below are also in the same genre. Although, if looking closely, you will find another Interstellar reference in one of today’s images.

Seeking: Guardians of the Galaxy

This time, I am sending out a specific request, not just a blanket appeal for any wallpaper. While creating this wallpaper set, I spent a good time looking forย quality Guardians of the Galaxy images. There were little to none. For a future post, I am requesting iPhone and iPad wallpaper images for Guardians of the Galaxy. If you have them, can find them, or make them, catch up with me @jim_gresham.

Please, make sure the images are made for at least iPhone 6 Plus and iPad retina screens. For that, the images will need to be at least 1080×1920 for iPhone 6 Plus and 2048×2048 for iPad. I look forward to seeing the results!

    • Anmol Malhotra

      Ikr! It will look great on iOS 6. ๐Ÿ˜€ :p

      • leart

    • August Ebbesen

      Wow, didn’t even know that iOS still exsited.

      • Warmachine69

        you can’t delete the past. Unless your stewie griffin with a time machine who almost saved the titanic!

      • leart

        some people like the classic in general and in terms of usability i’m pretty fine with ios 6.1.3 .
        i have saved all the ipa apps compatible for that firmware, im missing only some new ones, not a big deal since i have the prefered ones installed and the device is stunning fast and the battery life is just amazing (10-13 hours)

      • andy

        My iphone 4 2 days and 5 min xD!!!!!
        multitasking like over 20 apps, i love ios 6 its so useable, i still have my ipod touch 5th generation on ios 8.1.2 latest, im thinking of using it again but battery life totally is a true hunger!!

      • leart

        Latest iOS are not optimized to work well on older devices I guess. For my experience devices in their 3 major update starting to lagg, in their 4th are close to be unusable, like ip4 on iOS 7..
        Since you like classic take a look of the tweak i installed “again” this morning ๐Ÿ˜›

      • andy

        STOP MAKING ME CRY!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ HAHAHAHHA
        hey is it possible if i can upgrade to ios 6.1.3 from being on ios 6.0 (being on ios 6.0 when i bought the iphone 4 of my mate) ?
        Is it possible, and is there really difference between ios 6.0 and 6.1.3, or is it generally just bug fixes but nothing new?

      • leart

        You can install other versions of ios 6 only if the device was jailbroken and cydia was open at least once at the time when other ios 6 versions were the latest, you need to open cydia to save the shsh blobs automatically to their servers. Give it a try with ifaith, it will let you know if there are some shsh blobs for that device in cydia servers.
        The difference should be small, there are just a couple of improvements but just a few visible in interface like that report button on maps.
        Anyway in my experience 6.1.3 feels slower and the battery drains faster compared to ios 6-6.0.1 maybe they patched to many things in a little time and their attention was all to prepare ios 7 and not to fix the last ios 6 release..
        Sorry for my english ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • andy

        Ah ok, no sorry!
        I may sound like a nerd. I don’t like jailbreaking anymore, i used to love it back when ios 4-6 was around but now its risky :
        I checked using ifaith and it only saved me ios 6.0 and ios 7.1.2 ๐Ÿ™ so what do i do now!??

      • leart

        yeah, im done with jailbreaking, i dont trust those chinese jb to.
        the last one im still using on my A4 devices is evasi0n 6..
        I would like to try to jailbreak my mini, but since afte the process i cant never use again erase all content and settings, im keeping the stock ios..
        well if you have dumped shsh with ifaith, your fine, if the phone is factory unlocked, no reason to worry about baseband update if you try ios 7, downgrading with ifath is a peace of cake

      • andy

        Yeah bro ๐Ÿ™‚
        Ummm I’m not sure but my mate told me the iPhone I’m using used to be on plan and contract but it expired so that why he wanted to sold it and get new phone. So I ought if and I’m using my SIM card which is Optus yes pre paid.

      • andy

        I updated to iOS 7.1.2
        Omfg it’s crazy as hell!!!!!
        I’m never updating again
        Due to downgrading back to iMessage error
        Nd yeah
        Everything kept crashing so never hahaha :p!

      • andy

        Also the iphone i bought has never been jailbroken yet. Been stuck on ios 6.0 until im using it right now.

      • leart

        ios 6 should be fine and probably better than 6.1.3 ,many users confirm that..

      • andy

        Ah yeah awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

      • leart

      • leart

        the first ipad mini would be a brick if used on ios 8 AND and the most important im a little nostalgic ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Andrew

        I’m using a 1st-gen iPad mini on iOS 8.1 (is was pre-loaded with iOS 8.0.2) and it’s not too bad, but it definitely isn’t fast. I’m actually about to update to 8.1.2 to see if it helps at all.

      • leart

        My IPad mini was preloaded with 6.1.3 and i bought it in December 2014 so I had no choice ios 8 or ios 6, since I love old ios look, i choosed to stay on ios 6.
        Waiting for you to tell how it works on 8.1.2 , probably better than 8.0.2 but after seen some videos on youtube, 8.2 will be even better probably

    • andy

      Hahhaah u made my morning xD classic.

  • ghenoway

      • Jordan Stevens

        Glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed that ๐Ÿ™‚

  • These are incredible! Damn good choice indeed. Shame though that you missed the Pillars of Creation. Now that’s a wonderous sight

  • Joseph Apodaca

    More wallpapers. Enjoy!

  • Alain Vasquez

    ๐Ÿ™‚

  • That final one looks amazing with the Obscure 7 theme and Perspective Zoom turned on. Anyone know how to hide the folder/dock backgrounds?

    • Andrew

      There’s one tweak I’m thinking of in particular that lets you change up folders, and I’m pretty sure it’s called FolderIcons (or something like that. I don’t have my phone to check.)

      There are a few tweaks to hide the dock, but I don’t remember any off the top of my head. I know Springtomize does it.

    22d w00t and love the wallpapers!
