Some Gradient Wallpapers

I haven’t made any wallpapers in a long time, but I wanted some new gradients and no one had seemed to make any that totally made me happy, so I made my own. I hope you enjoy! Update 2019-08-26: I've added 4k desktop/iPad versions at the bottom of this post. They're big files, but gradients are wildly inefficient when it comes to compression.

As always, these are at 4k resolution and you should click the links to download each one directly (WordPress will downscale the ones you see on this page).

Some Updated Swift Wallpapers (5k, Ultrawide, and mobile)

I made a set of wallpapers a few years ago and since then screen resolutions and technology has changed since then. Tons of people have downloaded them and seemed to enjoy them, so I wanted to make newer versions of these that will both look better than the last set, as well as make them easier to update in the future for when we have 10k screens. Enjoy!

WWDC19 Wallpapers for iPhone, iPad, and Desktop

This is becoming a bit of a tradition!

This year’s WWDC has some pretty rad artwork which I think makes for some pretty rad wallpapers. Minimal adjustments were made to these this year in part because I simply don’t have as much time as years past, but also because Apple was good enough to give us art that actually just works great for this sort of thing!

Without further ado, here are 4 versions of the wallpaper, all in 4,000x4,000px resolution so they should work on most devices you have lying around. Also, make sure to view the full resolution version of the image by following the links below. My site will cache lower resolution versions on this page so that the site stays up (yay) but will look rough on your phone (nay).

Custom Fiery Feeds Halloween Theme

Fiery Feeds is my favorite RSS reader for iOS. One of its more unique features is its ability to install custom themes, and with Halloween right around the corner, I went looking for a Halloween theme. After coming up empty handed (“Fiery Orange” in the theme directory was close, but I didn’t love the colors chosen there, so I made my own. This is definitely a dark theme and I think it looks great on the iPhone XS.

You can download the theme at the GitHub page right now. If you want any variations, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. If anything is completely broken, I’d love to know that too and I’ll fix it.


Just a Simple Apple Wallpaper

It feels like Apple is trolling me today because not only did they release at least 86 variants of their logo today, but they made all of them crazy tricky to replicate.


Here's a simple Apple logo I made after trying to mess around with one of those many versions. It's not my best work, but I thought it was important to maintain tradition and post at least something today. If you like it, yay! If not, I promise the best one will be a little fancier 😁

Another Apple Event Wallpaper

Apple updated their Apple Events app for the Apple TV today and it of course has its own Apple graphic to go along with it. And in true BirchTree tradition, I’ve made some wallpapers to go along with the artwork.

These are, you guessed it, 4k square images that should look good on whatever you throw them at.

Wallpaper Tuesday: Rays

It’s time for some new wallpapers, everyone! Below is a new wall I’ve made for myself, which is Kinda of a sharp look, if I do say so myself.

I’m partial to the orange myself, but you may be interested in some other options. If so, please check out my Patreon where you can not only support this site, but will also get some exclusive variants of wallpapers from today forward1. If you’d like to support the site and get some extra wallpapers, support me on Patreon.

Below is the orange version in full 4K resolution. Enjoy!

Direct link to full 4K version (if WordPress is being funky and giving you a low res version).

  1. I don’t intend to ever make anything completely exclusive to Patreon, so all wallpapers will continue to be posted here, but sometimes there are dozens of variants of these wallpapers, and they will begin to be exclusive to patrons.
