    That was crazy. I was just thinking about changing my iPhone Wallpaper and thought: “let’s check out if there is something on the smashing magazine.” I typed in the url and what did I have to read at the first headline? “100 (Really) Beautiful iPhone Wallpapers”. You guys are just awesome. Allways the right thing at the right time! Thanks!

    I love the designs, but there’s not much point in these wallpapers as you only see them when your screen is active but the phone is locked. Apple certainly went full-of-function over pointless form on their interfaces!

      You can use Cydia Software that come when you unlock phone in that winter board application you can see the wallpaper behind your application

    Wonderfull & very funny wallpapers! Personally love the Daft Punk wallpaper from James White! Thank youw!

    Lol at fijis, yeah that one is cool too, someone should make App for that with sounds and stuff! Maybe really capable to have a sort of a conversation ;)

    iPhone wallpapers is not really “inspirational”, I find.

    FYI: The Pixelgirl iPhone Wallpapers link (in the post) is wrong, it links to IconFactory. Thanks for featuring my Robot wallpaper btw.

    Hey there, thanks for featuring our wallpapers – the We Made This set. You’ve credited them to James White, but they’re by Alistair Hall.

    ohooo really really cool wallpapers!!

    massive big up to the artists!!! and for you for putting them together!! :D:D

    As always, Smashing kicks out another great post! If only I could choose which one of the 30 I like the most to put on my iPhone… Decisions, decisions.

  26. 28

    You forgot the big source of iPhone Wallpapers in the planet

    Open to everyone, nicely organized with tags.

  27. 29

    Terrific Collection, well done!

  28. 30

    I think these are really cool. I wish you had cited who all the artists were though. I know you linked to the original compilation sites in the titles, but I would have thought clicking on each image would take to me to the page with the artist’s name.

  29. 31

    Mmm, lots of win here. It’s interesting that the most compelling ones (for me at least) happen to be nature and astronomy related.

  30. 32

    i really like this collection.
    my favorite though is the violin one – though, as always, they are all smashing,

  31. 33

    I love the Daft Punk one!
    most of them are amazing, but it would be great if you could do something similar for other resolutions
    I mean 240×320, which is more common than the apple mobile toyiPhone. I am suggesting some themes for Nokia‘s :-”
    [which I probably will never get on this kind of site :( so... skip this comment ]

  32. 34

    great designs

  33. 35

    Fantastic article, i’ll be exploring some of those sites in alot more details.

  59. 61

    Please, do us all a favour and skip the “(really)”´s in the subject. Seems to me like every 2nd new blog entry start with “xx (really) beautiful/useful/meaningsless/… yyy”. We all know – you really _do_ great lists on everything.
