Our Wallpapers of the Week collection brings you photo quality images, every Sunday. There are many different genres scattered across the section, but one stands out as particularly popular. Anything that is an Apple original, always receives the most views. These have been media event wallpapers, Apple advertising imagery, or in this case, original iOS wallpapers for iPhone.

Apple removed many of these original iPhone, iPad, and Mac wallpapers, but thanks to @AR72014, we have 45 of them optimized for iPhone X devices! 

Original iPhone and Mac wallpapers

The 45-wallpaper collection is almost all previous iOS wallpapers. The only missing few could not technically be optimized at a photo quality standard for the larger iPhone X screen.

There are several important notes about the collection, before you begin a downloading rampage:

First, they are in no particular order, meaning their association with an iOS release is not specifically ordered below. Second, they are optimized for iPhone X, which means they will fit all iPhone devices, but are scaled for iPhone X. When setting them as wallpaper on other devices, you will need to zoom slightly. Third, it is not an exhaustive collection, as mentioned above. Follow @AR72014 for any additional releases, if they are possible. Fourth, there are no optimized versions for tablets…if there were, I would have already included them. Finally, there is no zip file because file size, even when compressed.

I personally curate our Wallpapers of the Week collection via @jim_gresham. It is on Twitter I interact with many of the artists who are featured in our collection. You can submit images to me, originals or not, via Twitter and should follow along for mid-week updates or even extra downloads!

Again, many thanks to AR7, for making such a wonderful collection.

    Brilliant! I love the Kai fish but who made the wallpapers to be compatible with the Iphone X

    • R.B

      It’s definitely states @AR72014 did

  • Jose Rivera

    I wish I was able to extract the wallpapers from an iPad IPSW on iOS 6 and 7 along with 9. I’m able to do it with iOS 10 and later, but not with older builds. I was able to get the iPhone X exclusive ringtone that way.

  • Nathaniel

    These are absolutely amazing! Thanks so much!

  • Jacob Bennett-Watkins

    Nice…. the moon wallpaper seems to be true black!

  • You got me all emotional

  • Titan3636

    Awesome

  • TheShade247

    If you want punchy eye popping color then when you save these wallpaper go to edit and turn on auto enhance, would make it look even more brighter and vivid on OLed display.

  • big Rafa

    i’ll post some tomorrow

  • CuBoy531

    Thanks so much. Been looking for the Nemo fish with HD quality.

  • William Melendez

    iOS 5 wallpaper, the one with the water drops looks amazing with the silver iPhone X !

    • Fanboy 

      It was iOS 4 I believe 🙂 but it does!

      • William Melendez

        I was 100% sure, but good to know ! Takes me back when I got the 4 in white.

      • Fanboy 

        It was the default for both, but definitely came out in iOS 4. Having flashbacks of staying up late night to install iOS 4 because it introduced multitasking and came with this wallpaper! Aaahhh good times.

  • Todd Watts

    Nice!

  • J.A.F

    Where is this technicolor flower I’ve seen on some of Apple’s demo. Of the iPhone X? Is it’s dynamic? I’d love to find it!

  • 一天不来访,浑身上下痒!

  • besrate hogsa

  • Oh the memories, how time flies. Something special about the iPhone X good lord where did a decade go.

  • Gianpiero Scire

  • Tim Z

    Is it completely legal to download them and use them as a wallpaper for the iPhone? I will have No Copyright issues if I don’t change anything and don’t sell that picture?
