Update: Apple has killed the iCloud links we were using to share the Live Photo versions of the wallpapers. The still images can still be downloaded through the gallery below. Make sure to tap through and download the full-res file.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max aren’t set to be released to the public until next Friday, September 21st. The devices include 3 gorgeous new wallpapers, and ahead of their public release, someone has successfully extracted the three new wallpapers from iOS…

The three new wallpapers are titled ‘Bubbles,’ which confirms that they are not planets like many had speculated. They are also Live wallpapers, which means you can press on the screen to watch them animate – the versions we are sharing here, however, are still images. There is no way to extract the Live Photos version without degrading the quality.

In addition, the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will also keep only some of existing Live wallpapers collection. The iPhone X marketing images have been removed, as have the the 3 ‘Sand’ images. The ‘Ink’ images from the iPhone 6S are still there.

To download the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max wallpapers:

  1. Right click or long-press on the image you want to choose below
  2. Choose ‘Save’ on iOS or ‘Save image as’ on macOS

To set the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max images as your wallpaper:

  1. Open the image in the Photos app on iOS
  2. Tap the share icon in the lower-left corner
  3. Select “Use as Wallpaper”
  4. Choose “Perspective”

What do you think of these wallpapers? Let us know down in the comments!

Thanks, Ben!
