I’ve had my new Retina iPad mini for just over a week now. It’s just as great a device as I hoped and expected it would be – and I’ll share more thoughts on it sometime soon.
Whenever I’ve got a brand new device I always end up spending some time on wallpapers and home and lock screen looks. It’s just part of the fun of a new iPad or tablet or smartphone for me.
With that in mind, I thought I’d share an old favorite iPad wallpaper that is looking just glorious on my Retina iPad mini lock screen. It’s an epic image of a space shuttle lift off, one that I found via the fine folks from @retinashots.
It looks good on the home screen too, but it sort of overwhelms the icons – so I prefer it on lock screen only.
I’ve spotted a number of cool iPad wallpapers that help mark the 4th of July and US Independence Day. I particularly like the one shown above – as it’s subtle and looks great on the iPad home screen.
The image above is from the excellent Pimp Your Screen wallpaper app – which also has quite a few other July 4th themed iPad wallpapers. Check out the app if you feel like decking out your iPad for the holiday or just want to find tons of great iPad wallpapers.
Here’s some weekend iPad wallpaper choices for everyone who’s looking forward to iOS 7 on the iPad, or just likes the look of the new iOS 7 wallpapers.
The folks at the iClarified site have been kind enough to create static versions of some of the new dynamic wallpapers used in iOS 7 for the iPad home and lock screen.

This weekend’s iPad wallpaper pick is this Warrior image shown above. It reminds of the fantastic ‘300’ movie about Sparta’s legendary warriors.
It’s also just a powerful, striking image in its own right. I found this one at the ipwalls.com site, at this page which is unfortunately unreachable today: http://bit.ly/14fhk4j\
Today’s iPad wallpaper pick is Deep Carving – shown off on my iPad mini home screen above.
I’m not usually a fan of gold-ish or brown iPad wallpapers, but this one is too good to pass up. I find it powerful and striking looking, and app icons stand out very well against it.
Once again, it’s the creation of Brett Jordan – who continues to be one of the biggest contributors to our iPad Insight Flickr group.
Check out the Flickr group to download this Deep Carving wallpaper at a range of high-rez sizes and browse through lots more great iPad wallpapers and some amazing iPad paintings.
