Wallpapers of the week: yellow, red, and blue droplets

By , Nov 6, 2016

iOS 10.2 Stock Wallpaper Splash

Any time Apple uses specific images to highlight their new products, we scramble to find copies. For example, go ahead and grab our iPhone 7 marketing wallpapers, from the Apple website. In addition, Apple used what appears to be amorphous droplets in a variety of colors to highlight the iPhone 7, but neglected to put them in the iOS 10 GM.

Thankfully, with the release of iOS 10.2 beta 1, the wallpapers are now included. If you do not have a dev account and the latest beta, you will be waiting for the images. Additionally, these wallpapers appear to be available only for iPhone 7, so this might be your only chance to get your hands on them if you don’t have the latest device.

You can download variations of this wallpapers in yellowred, and blue.

According to 9to5Mac, the wallpapers were extracted directly from the beta. The large, square files should make for great wallpapers on iPhone or iPad.

If you ever have a great set of images, wallpaper tips/tricks, or want to stay in touch, find me on Twitter @jim_gresham. Follow along for fresh finds. Often my conversations with iDB readers, lead to great Wallpapers of the Week posts.

Thanks to a tip from Twitter, @jazielbaca, you can also have these wallpapers set as Live wallpapers on devices with 3D Touch. Using the app Black Lite – Live Wallpapers, you can download live versions of these wallpapers in yellow, red, blue, and green.  The app prompts users to download the Live wallpaper to Camera Roll. Then, from the Photos or Settings app, set the image as a Live wallpaper. Like the stock Live wallpapers, simply 3D Touch the image to animate!

The images are not quite photo quality, but we have been frequently asked how to make these animate on iOS devices. Thanks for the tip!

    I’m shocked. Y’all folks have ruined this week’s Wallpapers…

  • Stuart Lombard

    Thanks for these!

    Am I only one that doesn’t like wallpapers like this that are just solid black with something in the middle? I think this would be cool if it was dynamic.

    • Diego Milano

      You’re not alone. I never liked these at all, but I will say I did enjoyed the white versions of similar wallpapers, yet eventually I stopped using those as well.
      Also, am I the only one who doesn’t care about having a Live photo as a wallpaper?

      • Y2J: Keeper of the List

        I don’t care about Live Photos either, especially since they don’t do anything on the home screen. I really wish they add more dynamic ones or at least let devs make some or something.

      • Diego Milano

        That is actually a GREAT idea! Just like they allowed developed to code widgets on NC, they should open it up a little bit to LS. 🙂

      I like the MacBook Pro announcement ink cloud ones, usually I don’t like the stuff as u said ^^^ but those are different…

  • These are the worst wallpapers have ever done. I’m impressed how they got over themselves after previous terrible ones.

  • James G

    Primary colors? Or carrier colors?

    • Interesting

      • James G

        The carriers have clearly aligned to their respective colors when showing the phone in their TV spots.

    Off topic, but I’ve noticed in IOS 10.1.1 message screen effects utilize the Taptic Engine on the 7, like on the fireworks as they explode the phone taps you, dunno if that was there since day one tho
