Basic Apple Guy Wallpapers

I’ve seen Basic Apple Guy’s wallpapers popping up all over my feeds for a while now. Most recently, he released a beautiful Starry Night / Big Sur mashup. So I finally visited the site, and there is a mother lode of classy wallpaper there for you. While you are there, make sure to leave a tip. This was a lot of work.

My iPhone Wallpaper


Following yesterday’s post about my home screen, a lot of people were asking about my wallpaper.

Several readers wrote in to say the wallpaper’s creator is Dan Waldron (@dwaldron) who shared it with this tweet. Moreover, I’m pretty sure I found it with this post at MacStories.

Thanks everyone for writing in and thanks Dan for some great work.
