Basic Design Master Apple Guy is back with his latest creation, an incredibly detailed layered sketchy iPhone wallpaper in 14 different colors. Check out the work on this project below and download the new wallpaper for your iPhone.
Basic Apple Guy shared a new wallpaper for free on his blog (support him with advice here) and detailed the incredibly accurate weeks of work that went into them.
“Finally my iPhone 14 schematics are done! This includes schematics for iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Plus and amp; iPhone 14 Pro Max. This project took months to complete and I'm so happy that:
- I'm finally done.
- You can see all the work I've done. I've been studying behind closed doors for the past few months, and
- I can finally rest my very busy eyes for a minute.
This project started on September 21, just a few days after the iPhone 14 went public and teardowns started coming out. The photos posted by iFixit were indispensable in this project, so I thank them again for making them public!”

- iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max schematics will be available November 23rd< /li>
Background to the creative process
A basic Apple Guy shared the challenges of making these creations:
“One important design decision to look out for in regards to the iPhone 14 & The layout of the iPhone 14 Plus is that it is flipped both backwards and horizontally. This decision, as I will explain later, was made because the iPhone 14 has undergone significant body changes to improve its maintainability. With previous phones, as with the iPhone 14 Pro, damage to the back of the device would require replacement of everything but the display; Essentially a new phone. But with the iPhone 14, Apple introduced a protective aluminum panel sandwiched between the display and the back of the device, allowing for much more efficient repairs on both sides. This still allows the front glass to be replaced, but now allows the rear glass to be treated in the same way without replacing most of the internal components.
In terms of design, this means that if I were to make a traditional circuit, as if you were looking through glass at the components, all you see is an aluminum screen and nothing else. Rather boring. So instead, I redesigned the layout as if you were opening the back of the phone, allowing you to see the camera and components in a whole new way. That's what I meant when I called the diagram inverted.
The decision to use the diagram in this way also presented new challenges as I attempted to make these my most detailed diagrams to date. And definitely more intricate details on the iPhone 14 & Camera modules remain in the iPhone 14 Plus. Their compilation included working with layers and amp; multiple fills to create a sense of depth to create new &amp;amp;amp;amp; textures such as the camera sensor, glass cover, and sensor displacement mechanism.
Other parts of the design process involved creating hundreds of components with overlapping layers, shading, and textures that had to blend together perfectly. And even if it only takes 2-3 minutes to make each component, by the time I manually made all 482 individual elements (iPhone 14 Plus), I was looking at a project that took over 20 hours PER DIAGRAM!” ;
Fortunately, the iPhone 14 & The 14 Plus had a lot of similarly shaped components, so thanks to that and good layer management on my part (wow!), once I finished the iPhone 14 schematic, I was able to draw the iPhone 14 Plus schematic in about half the time. .”
