Geometric Splash

The Wallpapers of the Week series is advancing in age, and with age comes experience. We keep a close eye on the section and try to determine what readers enjoy, what is a habit, a preference, a hate. Of course, data provide quantitative numbers and comments provide qualitative feedback. Crossing the two, provides a path for further posts.

Naturally, not every reader will find their favorite wallpaper each week and they are always quick to sound off. However, there is a certain thread of wallpapers that always seem to draw positive attention: geometric shapes.

Geometric wallpapers

The images below were sourced from iDevice Walls. You can find a wide selection of wallpapers, specifically for iPhone 5 and newer. Additionally, @iDeviceWall keeps a steady stream of high quality images as well.

To download the following set of images, simply tap the wallpaper and a full resolution version will load. On your iOS device, save the image to Camera Roll and set it as wallpaper from the Share Sheet.

Wallpaper submissions

The Wallpapers of the Week section is made possible by readers! If you stumble across a great image or have a resource of curated wallpapers, make sure I know about them! The best way to do this is find me on Twitter @jim_gresham. From there you can send me a link or keep up with the images I find that do not quite make the section each week.

      How do you put your pages of apps at the top of the home screen what tweak is it? Also what tweak do I need to put the weather in the middle of the home screen?

      • h4nd0fg0d

        Go back a few pages on iDB to the ’16 new tweaks to consider for the weekend’ post and scroll down to those comments. I broke the whole setup down.

      • h4nd0fg0d

        Themes- Sumwaz ios8, Spaceship, 3 4 All Glyphs version 2. Sumwaz has the theme’s iconomatic ‘rays’ addon running. Harbor and Dockshift for dock. iWidget June’s pack 7 for the simple weather, HTC Animated Iphone 6 for other. Springtimize3 for cover flow look of top row. BatteryStatusBar.

      • h4nd0fg0d

        No tweak it’s just the first row of icons at top of screen. 2 folders, settings, 2 folders.

    IDB TEAM PLEASE READ: Seriously I ask this every time, can we get a dedicated section where users can show off their themes and wallpapers. Everytime I see the comments below with the creative ways that people made their themes and wallpapers it makes me want to go back and change up my phone. IDB TEAM can we make this happen please!!! Even back in the day when Blackberry’s were a thing Crackberry even had a Iphone forum with 100’s of pages of iphone themes and wallpapers for jailbroken iphones!

  • ‘Simple minimalist points’ is similar to this book’s cover: I’m just honestly curious if the artist knows it was used.
