Basic Apple Guy has just released a collection of awesome new wallpapers for iPhone, iPad and Mac inspired by one of the designs included with the 7th generation iPod nano. The 7th generation iPod nano was originally released in 2012 and has seen two very small refreshes in its lifetime. The new wallpapers are available in 13 different varieties representing the colors of 2012, 2013 and 2015.
The 7th generation iPod nano was the second model to offer different wallpaper options for the Home screen. The 6th gen model came with wallpapers inspired by those available on the iPhone and iPad at the time, but with the 7th gen model, Apple decided to give them their own unique set of patterns. matched to colors. One of those designs was a series of lines starting from the center of the bottom of the screen. This is the one that Basic Apple Guy remastered and brought to Apple’s current platforms.
You can see in the comparison image below how great these recreations are. These really are almost perfect representations of those wallpapers first introduced in 2012.
The original 2012 iPod nano collection included 8 colors: slate, silver, purple, pink, yellow, green, blue, and (PRODUCT) red. Basic Apple Guy has created wallpapers that match each of them and they are absolutely gorgeous. Keep in mind that in 2013, Apple replaced the slate iPod nano with a space gray model alongside the iPhone 5s. It included a space gray version in addition to the slate.
Two years later, in 2015, the company replaced the entire color palette with more limited and less attractive options. The new collection included standard space gray, silver and red (PRODUCT) as well as the new colors gold, pink and blue. The red (PRODUCT) wallpapers from 2012 and 2015 are the same because Apple has not changed this color. However, Basic Apple Guy included a refreshed silver version of the wallpaper in its 2015 collection to distinguish it from the original 2012 variant.
You can see all of these wallpapers side by side below. They are a fun walk down memory lane. I remember using this wallpaper pattern on my 7th generation iPod nano in 2012. I will definitely be using them on some of my devices. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
