Wallpapers of the Week: flat pastels honoring Steve Jobs

AppleStick splash

Round five on the Wallpapers of the Week section and we are loving the submissions from our fan base. The response is excellent and we are happy to keep fulfilling the readers’ requests for more. Thanks to you, we will be keeping the section as long as we keep finding amazing wallpapers.

With the upcoming iPhone 5S and 5C, including the potential for a retina iPad mini, there may be big changes with the resolutions of our line up. Until then we will be providing two wallpapers for at least one device. Many of you ask, why not include all resolutions each week. The answer, many artists only create wallpapers for one device. However, whenever we happen to run across an excellent wallpaper with full resolutions, we are happy to include them.

This is one of those weeks. Thanks to @Frenchitouch, the line up includes a beautiful array of pastel colors with the unofficial Steve Job’s tribute logo. And for the full device thirsty readers, Frenchitouch provides all colors for iPhone 5, 4/S, iPad retina and desktop resolutions…


It is not often one finds a complete suite like the AppleStick collection we are presenting today. These simple and attractive pastel wallpapers are designed in blue, gray, green, purple, red, and yellow for iPhone, iPad and desktop. Because of the variety and device options, we are looking at 24 total wallpapers. To make things easy, a ZIP file is also posted. However, if you truly embrace the post-pc era, you will need to download each individual wallpaper on your device by tapping the desired color.

To see more goodies from @Frenchitouch, visit the Deviant Art gallery or bookmark the upcoming homepage.
