Astrophotography Milky Way galaxy wallpapers for iPhone

There’s nothing quite like the Milky Way galaxy. For starters, it’s home; moreover, it’s beautiful. In today’s iDownloadBlog Wallpapers of the Week, we are taking the opportunity to enjoy some “far out” astrophotography. In line with the recent Apple event stars-themed media invitations, these Milky Way galaxy wallpapers make awesome backgrounds while we wait for the iPhone 14 announcement.

The following collection of photographs was sourced from, an online, license-free image repository. Our featured photographer is Evgeni Tcherkasski. As his profile confirms, he is interested in nightscapes, landscapes, and astroscapes. This collection of five downloads squarely fit into that description.

After seeing the Apple event invitations, I was struck by the fun design, which I can only assume is comprised of stars. Consequently, when I stumbled over Tcherkasski’s library, they triggered that connection. The below downloads are the original size as hosted on unsplash. Instead of cropping them down to exactly fit iPhone’s screen size and ratio, I decided to leave them untouched. Consequently, you will be able to adjust the canvas when setting as background to showcase your favorite pieces of each image.

My favorite is the last image. A mirror-like body of water with a single boat reflects the entire sky. With colors ranging from black to orange and purple, it is also visually appealing from a contrasting color perspective.
