Christmassy iPad Wallapers: Santa Selfie & More

Santa Selfie iPad wallpaper

Just one more day, as my daughter keeps reminding me, until to jolly man in the red suit arrives. So it must be time to share a few Christmas themed iPad wallpapers. I’ve found the perfect one for my Retina iPad mini – it’s the ultra traditional Santa Selfie, all he’s missing is Google Glass instead of those red specs and maybe a fleet of gift-delivering drones in the background.

This one is the work of Katya Volodina, via the wonderful Poolga.com site.

I’ve also found quite a few I like in the excellent (and free) Pimp Your Screen iPad wallpapers appPimp Your Screen iPad wallpapers app – hit the break to check out a couple examples …

iPad Wallpapers: Lock Screen Lift Off

Lift Off Lock Screen

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.
