Download Wiring Diagram wallpapers for iPhone 14 Pro

Design virtuoso Basic Apple Guy yesterday released incredibly detailed layered schematic iPhone 14 wallpapers in a variety of colors. Today he has followed suit with the release of his gorgeous iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max wallpapers. Read on to download the new wallpapers for your iPhone, plus insights into his creative process, tips for designers and artists, and more in a short interview with us.

Basic Apple Guy shared the new wallpapers for free on his blog (support him with a tip here), describing the incredibly accurate, months-long work that went into them.

โ€œThe highlight of these schematics is a component I haven’t shown to date, the A16 chip. I borrowed everything I learned from creating the M2 MacBook Air schematics and designed the Pro schematics with an exposed logic board. Normally this component is covered when inside the phone to protect the electronics, but when I saw the teardown I couldn’t help but try to replicate it for the wallpaper. I figured it might add a few hours of work and a few hundred extra parts to the design. I have fallen below. At 2,367 parts, the logic board on the iPhone 14 Pro schematics is one of my most complex parts yet and I added a ton of extra hours to complete this project. But becoming the beautiful hallmark of this project was totally worth it.

Another part of this scheme that I’m very proud of are some parts you’ll rarely see – the TrueDepth camera, infrared camera and dot projector hidden behind the dynamic island. Although you won’t often see these pieces, they fall behind the dynamic island every time you unlock your iPhone or minimize an app. I wanted to make sure no detail was overlooked; even for parts that you won’t see 99% of the time.”

Apple Guy’s basic creative process

I had the chance to ask Basic Apple Guy a few questions to understand his creative process, how he deals with challenges and to hear his tips for designers and artists ๐Ÿ˜:

What do you find most exciting or interesting about such detailed work?

This penchant for exploring and understanding complicated things has always intrigued me. As a kid I would spend hours looking at cross section books of boats and airplanes. I loved getting lost in the countless tiny details of something; Perhaps these wallpapers are a natural extension of that. These wallpapers also help me appreciate the iPhone so much more. From the outside, the iPhone is just a slab of metal and glass (an extraordinary slab, mind you). When I build these and notice the thousands of connections and layers between every component, the device feels so much more special.

What is the biggest challenge for you in such projects? Any tips on how to move through them? Are there specific systems?

These wallpapers become very, very monotonous. I can spend several hours showing just a few pixels of work. Because of this, persistence can become challenging, and there’s a mix of the need to set aside time and the need to move through some of the repetitive pieces. Unfortunately, I can’t focus when listening to spoken audio (sorry 9to5Mac Happy Hour) and instead rely on ambient playlists to focus and stay in a flow state. I also like to book time into it after I’ve completed other chores and errands to ensure I can devote long, undivided stretches to working on it.

Any words of wisdom for budding creators/designers/artists inspired by your work?

I always fall into the trap of seeing great designs and being discouraged that what I create doesn’t look that good. But I forget in this moment the hundreds to thousands of hours that someone privately toils to get their work to this place. If you look at my iPhone 13 schematics versus the iPhone 14 schematics, I hope they show an improvement in engineering, but that wasn’t due to coincidence or accident; it was the result of hundreds of hours of practice. Never overlook the grind & process that gets someone where you want to be. To quote Futurama, “If you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.”
