Tomorrow, Apple kicks off the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC21) with a media event. Each year, WWDC announces upgrades to all Apple software systems. We get the chance to see upcoming improvements for our devices. With each new OS, a new stock wallpaper is released and today we offer downloads of incredible iOS 15 wallpaper concepts, based on existing systems.
With new hardware and a new spring season, Apple also "Spring Loaded" new accessory colors for Apple Watch, iPhone, and iPad. The new MagSafe versions of the iPhone 12 silicone cases came in four very springy new color ways, Cantaloupe, Pistachio, Capri Blue, and Amethyst. Some of the Apple Watch bands are near matches to these colors as well. To ensure you can celebrate these new colors without spending any money on new accessories, you can download these color matching wallpapers for iPhone.
With a brand new design refresh not seen since before 2010, the 2021 iMac boasts seven (technically six) brand new color ways. Each of these devices was advertised with a playful, color matching background. We have a giant iMac wallpaper pack that is a reproduction of these images, ready for download and installation on your current iPad, iPhone, or desktop machine.
At the "Spring Loaded" Apple event on Tuesday, April 20, Tim Cook and company announced updates to the iPad Pro lineup. The biggest feature enhancement, other than touting a desktop class M1 Apple silicon chipset, is the Liquid Retina XDR display. Shining at 1,000 nits of brightness, with 1,600 nits of peak brightness and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ration, this screen is going to be phenomenal. To showcase the new device, Apple used several wallpaper variations on the website. Download them now for iPad and iPhone.
Today, Apple announced new iPad Pro, iMac, Apple TV, and AirTag hardware. Most striking is the all new, completely redesigned iMac line up, which has not been significantly updated since around 2009. The decade old design gives way to an 11mm thin chassis, poised on top of a minimal stand. The "hello" wallpaper used to announce the device harkens back to when Steve Jobs launched the Lisa. Download this collection of Apple 'Spring Loaded' hardware inspired wallpapers.
Earlier today, Apple confirmed an upcoming April 20th media event with 'Spring Loaded' invitations. With the invite comes a cryptic message hidden deep within the graphic design. This Apple Pencil stylized drawing seems to further indicate iPad devices may be a large feature of the announcement. Regardless, we have Apple event wallpapers inspired by the new invitations.
Space wallpapers are a popular theme on the iDB Wallpapers of the Week gallery. This week, we bring you images directly from the surface of Mars. Thanks to the NASA Mars 2020 Mission, the wallpapers in todays collection come directly from that Martian surface. These Mars Perseverance wallpapers showcase the red planet's rough surface and thick atmosphere.
Since the launch of iOS Home Screen widgets and the ability to change app icons within native iOS 14, people are getting really creative with their setups. Pictured in the preview above, this @AR72014 wallpaper mod takes it a step farther with a creative way to enhance the look of the iPhone dock.
I love a smooth gradient wallpaper for iPhone. In fact, a lot of my personal wallpaper collection consists of simple gradient color changing images. The reason gradients make such great iPhone wallpapers is the simplicity and color variety. One thing to consider when using gradients is how it plays with the icons on your Home Screen. You don't want a lot of color clash. The set today comes from the macOS Big Sur color palette. From hot pinks to rich, navy blues, this set is both dark and bright.
On the iDB Wallpapers of the Week collection, we tend to post a set of images that fit a similar genre. Space, galaxy, stars, and planetary themes are always popular, when it comes to total visits and download numbers. Today's set fits within this exact genre and spans from land to space and the stars. Utilizing clever gradients for a pop of color in an otherwise colorless vacuum, these minimal images will make great additions to your collection.
Over the last few months, a new wallpaper trend is forming. "Duo" wallpapers are popping up around the designer community as a way to splash your Home and Lock Screen with multiple colors. Potentially a result of iOS 14's ability to add widgets, this Duo iPhone wallpaper pack helps to bifurcate the layout of your icons and on-screen widgets. In another edition of iDB's Wallpapers of the Week, download your favorites from this complete collection, including colors matching the AirPods Max.
