These mysterious wallpapers make your iPhone dock disappear

iPhone Wallpaper Downloads

iPhone fans around the world are still mourning the loss of the infamous black wallpaper, a special image that exploited an iOS glitch and caused the dock and folder backgrounds to disappear. It gave black and Jet Black iPhones in particular an awesome stealth look, and you can see it in action right here. Unfortunately, Apple fixed the glitch in iOS 10.2 and the wallpaper no longer works. It’s a bummer, but there are still other wallpapers that trigger fun iPhone glitches in Apple’s latest iOS software.

In addition to that last batch, the wallpaper wizard behind all of these nifty iPhone glitch wallpapers is back with a new collection of “Strange Dock” wallpapers that will make the dock at the bottom of your iPhone’s home screens disappear.

Twitter user “heyeased” has become well-known by Apple fans thanks to all of the unique wallpapers he creates. He was one of the first people to create wallpapers that took advantage of obscure iOS glitches to create cool effects. Now, he’s back with a fresh new batch of wallpapers.

This time around, the new wallpapers don’t actually take advantage of a glitch at all. Instead, they color-match the bottom of the wallpaper to the dock color so that the dock just blends in. It’s good thinking on heyseased’s part, and the results are great for people who like unique iPhone wallpapers and bright colors.

You’ll find all of the new wallpapers on this page on heyseased’s blog, and they’re designed to work with any iPhone model running iOS 10.2+. If you have an older version of iOS installed, you can head to this page. An image that shows all of the new wallpapers can be seen below.
