The amazing new retina display is the signature feature of the new 2012 iPad. I’ve had the new iPad for two days now and I’m still marveling at how great this new display is. And of course such a gorgeous new display can’t be left with just the default set of wallpapers. That just would not be right.
So I’ve been scouting around a bit for iPad wallpapers made for the beautiful new display, and sized for it at 2048X2048. Luckily, there are already a lot of excellent retina-ready wallpapers around. The first great resource I found was the Retina iPad Wallpapers thread at MacRumors forums. The Water Droplet wallpaper shown above was shared by MacRumors forum member Troop231, and was one of the first striking images that caught my eye.
Hit the break for quite a few more stunningly good wallpapers for the new iPad …
In no particular order here are some more great retina-ready iPad walls from either the thread mentioned above or a spin-off thread with only simple backgrounds for the new iPad:
Space Dust Blue Grey, shared by Lukeyy19:
Grey Linen Dark, also from Lukeyy19:
Black Grid, again from Lukeyy19:
Mountain Lion Galaxy, shared by Agent-P:
This one I’m calling Repeating Apple Logo, and it’s from the Cool Wallpapers HD & Retina Free app:
All of these look awesome on the new iPad. Here’s just a few examples on my home screen:
I’ve uploaded all the images shown here, and a few more I liked, at the full 2048X2048 to the iPad Insight Flickr group page.
Hope all of you who’ve got the new iPad will enjoy these. And as always, I’d love to see some of your favorite wallpapers for the new iPad – please share them at our Flickr group page.
