Apple WWDC 2016 wallpaper Matt Bonney splash image

Every Sunday, we utilize the Wallpapers of the Week section to highlight great background-worthy pictures and images. Whenever Apple hosts a media event, the Internet lights up with invitation-inspired graphics, that often make excellent wallpapers.

Apple used a retro looking script based invitation for the upcoming WWDC event, leading pundits to assume the event may only contain software updates. Inside you will find wallpapers, for iPhone, iPad, and desktop, that pay homage to the upcoming event.

The Wallpapers of the Week are found around the Internet, on dedicated wallpaper sites, or, most often, via Twitter. Connect with me @jim_gresham to highlight your favorite wallpapers or your own creations. Follow along during the week to grab a few new images in between Sunday afternoons!

Apple WWDC wallpapers

The first set of images highlight a retro Apple logo, recreated by Matt Bonney. Below, we featured the light and dark versions for iPhone (any size), iPad (any size) and desktop (2560 x 1440). If you are looking for other device sizes, even 4K, 5K, and 8K options, you can visit his gallery directly.

Additionally, he provided a full resolution version of the retro graphic so you can make your own! If you do, share your screenshots in the comments below and show them off to Matt on Twitter @bonney.

The following images were also inspired by the new WWDC invitation. A very cool representation of the Siri bands would make a great Lock screen option. It is hoped there will be major improvements to Siri during the developer’s conference, including an API. The following two wallpapers were created by designer Bryan Mortensen. You can check out his vast portfolio via his personal website. Follow him on Twitter @bemorte.

    Signifies Apples backwards trend

    • JustCause

      I was thinking the same thing lol.

      They’re probably gonna announce that they’re gonna bring back the original iPhone. They need to go backwards so that they can go forwards and look like they’re being innovative again lol.

    • LARRY

      Apple has been backwards since Steve jobs passed Tim Cook has ruined apple!! Can’t wait to sit back and laugh at iOS 10 iPhone 7 issues to arise just as iOS 8/9 did lol

      • Tommy

        Can’t really blame Tim. There’s just nothing else new to bring to the mobile table.

      • tariq

        SD cards and water proof ness and battery and camera and safer icloud would be nice.

      • John

        SD Cards? Because they are toooootally still in.

      • tariq

        I’m just saying, there are things spoke could do to improve

      • LARRY

        John is a fanboy he doesn’t understand the concept of Apple improved features just living in the same old past like Apple does

      • John

        Oh Larry, I feel sorry for you. What sort of pathetic shelters life do you live that you have to create a profile just to troll a discussion board.

I can understand maybe you never hear of Walmart but there is internet and there must be no internet where you may live?? But androids are world wide,

      • leart
      • LARRY

        Exactly Apple will never catch up to them very wanted features like androids if so they might be up to the plate to smack a home run??

      • leart
      • LARRY

He has done zip for Apple stocks down Apple needs water resistance design SD extended memory and removable battery needs faster cpu speeds like androids needs more Apple will never catch up to android Apple want to control your overpriced iPhones what you can and can’t do!!
