Grab the 2 Default macOS Mojave Wallpapers
MacOS Mojave includes a few stunning new wallpapers that are appropriately desert themed, showing off some gorgeous sand dune formations.
The new desktop backgrounds include one picture of sand dunes basked in sunlight for the light theme of macOS Mojave, and another showing the same sand dunes draped in darkness lit by nothing but moonlight and stars for the dark theme of macOS Mojave.
But if you just want to enjoy the wallpaper you don’t need to download beta 1 of macOS Mojave, or wait until the fall for the final version to be available, instead you can grab them right now to stylize your Mac desktop background.
The Mojave default wallpapers are available at a whoppingly high 5120 × 2880 resolution, making them appropriate for even large screen retina displays.
Click on the images below to launch the full sized version into a new window which you can then save locally and use as your desktop background.
BONUS! If the dark night time Mojave image is too dark for your tastes but you like it generally, you can also download this modified version which is slightly lighter:
Once the image is loaded in a new browser window at full resolution, you can set the picture as a desktop wallpaper from Safari directly on the Mac, or you can save the image locally and then set it as the Mac desktop background that way too. Naturally iPhone and iPad users can set a custom wallpaper using the image saved from the web too.
As you may know already, macOS Mojave is named after the vast Mojave desert region of south eastern California, and while the precise sand dune shown in the wallpaper images isn’t known, it’s probably located in the middle of nowhere within the vast Mojave desert region, situated roughly halfway between Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. So just in case you feel like venturing to the region to take your own photos and wallpapers, be prepared for an immensely desolate experience.
If you’re a wallpaper customization addict (and who doesn’t like a great wallpaper, really?) then you might also be interested in grabbing the default iOS 12 wallpaper too, which is a pleasantly colorful abstraction of blurred shapes and smudges, looking wonderful on the iPhone and iPad, but also great on a Mac or Windows PC too.
