In 2018, Apple launched its first speaker in more than a decade. The HomePod was the very indirect successor to the Apple iPod Hi-Fi speaker. This time, coming with a completely new design, voice control via Siri, and pairability for stereo sound or whole home audio. The rounded cylindrical design was instantly iconic, but the device was not.
These inspired HomePod wallpapers for iPhone recall the curved, mesh edge design.
Sometimes the beauty is in simplicity. Having a busy Home Screen wallpaper just gets completely jumbled up amongst the grid of icons and widgets. Don't even get me started about how the icon labels just add to the extra business of the screen. In this edition of iDownloadBlog's Wallpapers of the Week simplicity is in vogue. These colorful horizontal stripes wallpaper downloads are just the right combination of pop and flash, without cluttering your experience.
I loved all of the hardware refreshes Apple launched in 2021. The iPad mini is one of my favorite. While the design language was an obvious next step, given the existing iPad Pro and iPad Air, the iPad mini redesign was hard to resist. Cramming that edge to edge screen in such a small form factor is awesome and the new color ways are really fun! The iPad mini launched with gradient wallpapers that inspired this Waves wallpaper collection.

Apple officially announced the third, annual Apple Music Awards, honoring the best artists of the year. The awards recognized artists' achievements in music across five categories and specifically highlighted regional artists. In the Apple announcement, the artists are pictured with incredibly well designed physical plaques. These Apple Music Awards wallpapers are inspired by the award designs and make incredible backgrounds.
AirPods Max are my most expensive set of headphones. In fact, they are one of my most expensive accessories, even in covering premium Apple products for about a decade. My first concern when opening the AirPods Max package was the skimpy, low coverage piece of cloth that Apple considers a case. I immediately started looking for a premium AirPods Max case and Woolnut delivered on all levels.
Another "crispy" addition to the iDownloadBlog Wallpaper of the Week collection. "Crispy" both in sharp imagery and crisp in the cold, snowy, icy nature of the subject matter. Winter is my favorite time of year and stepping out into the crisp, cool air feels rejuvenating. I know we have readers south of the equator, but us northern hemisphere residents are gearing up for the colder months of the year. Crisp and chill your devices with this winter wallpaper pack.
Apple recently reopened a retail store with incredible offerings and stories. The Grove store in Los Angeles is twice the size of the original building that was redesigned for this grand re-opening. Additionally, Apple announced a new location in Berlin, on Rosenthaler Straße, at city center. These iPhone wallpapers are from the Apple imagery of each location.
The Netflix international sensation Squid Game proved to be even more popular than Tiger King in its prime time. The South Korean reality game dramatization pit contestants in a death battle for a cash prize. Catch the hype with these mobile and desktop wallpapers.
The iPhone 13 Pro is a modern work of technical genius. One of the heralded upgrades from the previous iPhone generation is a larger battery capacity. You can see the new “L” shaped battery design that is giving some extra charge, in these tear down wallpapers. In addition to the teardown photography, you can also snag an X-ray version that shows off a lot of the cool, upgraded internals.
