The recently released James Bond film Spectre has been showing good numbers in the box office. A harkening back to the good old days of Bond, Spectre is full of gadgets, cars, and explosions. It puts Casino Royal’s only gadget, the heart defibrillator, to shame, but Spectre doesn’t quite hang with Skyfall.
My personal movie commentary aside, it was a bang up James Bond film and a few iOS device wallpapers will show your support. Inside, there are Spectre wallpapers for iPhone, iPad, and desktop. Although today’s Wallpapers of the Week post is a mixed bag of devices, there is something for everyone. Read More

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

We continue the Wallpapers of the Week section with sunset wallpapers. This natural beauty is hard to synthesize and these photographs capture the colors extremely well.

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.

The Wallpapers of the Week section continues with geometric images. This category has been popular over the course of our wallpaper section and today bolsters the collection. Geometric wallpapers add a flash of color and texture to iPhone’s Lock and Home screens. With iOS 7+ these images can drastically change the look of your device because the opacity changes drastically across the UI. In addition to grabbing some fresh new versions, inside is also a back catalogue of previous posts that include similarly tailored options.

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.

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
