By Jeff Benjamin on Sep 30, 2015

There might not be a lot of new contained in today’s iOS 9.1 beta 3 release, but it does come bundled with three new static planetary wallpapers. Actually, the wallpapers are only new in the sense that they’ve been revamped, as they’re still photos of the same three planets, just presented in a way that’s much more appealing and not so dark.

Even if you’re not currently running the latest iOS 9 beta, you can still enjoy these new wallpapers on your current iOS install via the download link inside this post. Read More

iPhone 6s still wallpaper images

By Jim Gresham on Sep 20, 2015

With the iPhone 6s releasing on Friday, everyone is getting excited about the new features offered by the updated hardware. Naturally, one of the features I am most excited about is the option for dynamic wallpapers. The live wallpapers are a combination of iOS 9 and iPhone 6s hardware operability. If you downloaded iOS 9 this week, you will notice the motion wallpapers are missing from the list, due to their iPhone 6s exclusivity.

Inside, we have still images of the live wallpapers for iPhone 6s. The images are quite stunning, even if they are not in motion. Step inside for the option to download six iPhone 6s dynamic wallpaper still images for your current device! Read More

By Jeff Benjamin on Sep 8, 2015

In yet another sign that we’re ridiculously close to launch, several images are now floating around the web showcasing the iPhone 6s box, complete with cover art.

The latest box art leak that I’ve seen is from @alixrezax, and it features what seems to be a Space Grey iPhone 6s. Unlike last year’s sparse white box that featured a mere embossed outline of the phone awaiting inside, this year’s model goes back to the product shot and wallpaper seen in past iPhone releases.

By Jim Gresham on Aug 27, 2015

Rumor: iPhone 6s sports animated backgrounds inspired by Apple Watch’s Motion face

By Christian Zibreg on Aug 27, 2015

Apple’s upcoming ‘iPhone 6s’ and ‘iPhone 6s Plus’ smartphones are said to include animated backgrounds inspired by the Apple Watch’s Motion face, 9to5Mac learned from sources. Of course, Apple has offered dynamic wallpapers since iOS 7, but it’s a single motif in seven color choices.

These new animated backgrounds created for upcoming iPhones are being described as sharing the same theme as the Motion face on the Apple Watch, which shows painstakingly crafted animations of jellyfish, multi-colored butterflies and brightly colored flowers. Read More


WGradRemover gets rid of the wallpaper gradient overlay shadow

By Jeff Benjamin on Aug 24, 2015

Have you ever noticed how your iPhone’s wallpaper is sometimes noticeably dark at the top of the screen near the status bar? That’s because iOS automatically overlays the wallpaper with a shadow gradient. This is done in an attempt to make status bar icons and assets more visible, especially on busy wallpaper backgrounds.

But not everyone wants to have their wallpaper modified by this shadow overlay, as it can change the true look of your wallpaper. WGradRemover is a new jailbreak tweak that helps jailbroken users easily remove the wallpaper gradient overlay. Read More


Wallpapers of the week: there’s nothing quite like iPhone

By Jim Gresham on Aug 23, 2015

Apple always posts excellent background images when highlighting their devices on their website. However, they do not always include their creations in iOS releases, leaving avid wallpaper fanatics lacking. It would be amazing if Apple included these images in a downloadable form.

A new Apple marketing series has them touting iPhone specific features. With a new line of “if it’s not an iPhone” TV commercials, the Cupertino based company now has a dedicated website that features similar justifications. The “Why there’s nothing quite like an iPhone website” highlights several features of their flagship device that cannot be replicated on other hardware. The page uses great graphics, three of which we have downloadable today for iPhone, iPad, and desktop.

Textured pattern wallpapers for iPhone and iPad

By Jim Gresham on Aug 16, 2015

Continuing the Wallpapers of the Week section, we turn to simplistic images. Often, patterns and textures make for great Home and Lock screen images because they can be colorful, but not distract from the UI elements, like the clock or app icons. Personally, I prefer this style wallpaper due to the simplistic nature of the images.

Below the fold, you will find several walls to choose from, which will bring nice contrast to your devices, even if color isn’t a requirement to do so.

Yosemite National Park wallpapers for iPhone and iPad

By Jim Gresham on Jul 19, 2015

Before focus shifts completely to El Capitan this fall, we wanted to capture the wholistic beauty of Yosemite National Park instead of focusing on a single mountain. The park, which is the focal point of the two most recent OS X operating system naming conventions, was first protected in 1864.

Totaling 1,200 square miles, Yosemite is accentuated by natural valleys and steep rising cliffs, formed thousands of years ago by glaciers. Four million visitors trek to the park each year to take in the beauty. We are continuing the Wallpapers of the Week section to highlight that natural allure.
