Wallpaper Weekends: Retina Wallpapers For Your New iPad!

Posted in iOS, iPad, Miscellaneous on 11/03/2012 by Jim Gresham


Wallpaper Weekend is a post series intended to bring you stunning, high quality wallpapers for your iPad, iPhone, and/or iPod Touch.

This weekend I present you two “New iPad” wallpapers created specifically for the 1536×2048 (at 264 ppi) Retina display! It is time to start prepping your wallpaper library with HD+ images for March 16th.  After all, I wouldn’t want you using stock wallpapers on that shiny new screen.  Taking full advantage of every single beautiful pixel, the paint splattered Apple logo shines against a dark woven background.  Additionally, for the avid MacTrast reader, please enjoy the MacTrast logo amid a warm wooden backdrop.  You really have to blow these up to see the extra detail in the textured images!
