Get 53+ High Quality Mac & Apple Hardware Icons Right in Mac OS X
A large collection of high resolution Apple hardware icons is bundled right in Mac OS X, including great icons for nearly all vaguely recent Mac models, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple TV, iMac, Mac Mini, Mac Pro, and much more, going all the way back to the G4 series. Many of these icons are what you find when using network sharing with a computer they match, but they also make for an excellent way to dress up your matching Mac by replacing the generic Macintosh HD icon or anything else.
How to Access Mac & Apple Hardware Icons in Mac OS X
To access the hidden hardware icon pack:
- From the Mac OS X Finder, hit Command+Shift+G to bring up the “Go To Folder” window and enter the following path:
- Scroll down until you start finding icns files named “com.apple” followed by the hardware name
- Get the high resolution versions either by double-clicking the .icns file to open it in Preview, or by using Command+I and copying the icon directly
As you probably guessed, the folder is best browsed through either in Icon or Cover Flow view. Here are a few high resolution samples of the icons:
You’ll find tons of other icons in the Resources directory other than Apple hardware icons too, including hard drives, trash cans, folders, Finder icons, various system icons and glyphs, even the greyscale icons that removed the color from the Finder sidebar.
folder can’t be found ????
found it, had to take a different route
I cannot open “coretypes.bundle” and, therefore, can’t see any icons. When I double click that file, all I get is a terminal window. What am I doing wrong?
right click core type.bundle,
select “show contents
then follow rest of path
Another simple way to see these is with quick-view, just press space on any of them and scroll up and down with the keyboard.
The question is, can you legally use them?
For personally use, of course
