Designer based in England Hector simpson has created a nice set of new wallpapers for macOS, iOS and iPadOS inspired by the classic blue wave designs that were a staple of early versions of Mac OS X. The set is called “Aquex” – clearly a tribute to aqua. Simpson also designed a wide range of options that also use color schemes from newer versions of macOS. The best part, however, is that there are dynamic wallpapers that change throughout the day.
Mobile versions are available for iPhone and iPad for free in a variety of different color options. They’re optimized for the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, so they will look great on any size screen.
The Mac wallpaper collection costs $ 3, however, and includes an installer that will add them all directly to System Preferences, including dynamics. The package requires Mojave, but the one-time purchase also includes a folder with each individual file. So you can use them with concepts and mockups or use them on non-Apple devices.
Each Mac wallpaper is 6016 x 3384, so they will look great on 6K displays like the Pro Display XDR. They also support the wide P3 color gamut which helps make modern Mac screens stand out. There are also dark and light versions of each wallpaper so that you can choose an optimized one for your system theme.
Aquex is now available on the Simpson website, and we highly recommend that you check it out. These wallpapers are simply beautiful.
