The Basic Apple Guy design wizard is back with its latest creation – incredibly detailed, layered iPhone 14 sketch wallpapers in a variety of colors. Check out the work that went into this project below and download the new wallpapers for your iPhone.
The Basic Apple Guy shared the new wallpapers for free on his blog (support him with a tip here) and detailed the exact weeks worth of work.
“At long last, my iPhone 14 blueprints are done! This includes blueprints for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Plus, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. This project took me months to make, and I’m so happy with it:
- You’re finally done.
- You can see all the work I’ve been doing behind closed doors over the past few months, and;
- I can finally rest my very tired eyes for a minute.
This project started on September 21st, a few days after the iPhone 14 was made available to the public and the disassembly began. The images released by iFixit were indispensable to this project, so once again I thank them for making them publicly available! “

Background on creative processes
The Basic Apple Guy shared the challenges in making these creations:
“One important design decision to point out about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus layouts is that they are flipped backwards and horizontally. This decision was made, and I will explain more in a bit, because the iPhone 14 received a major redesign on the case to improve its repairability. With phones Previous, and as in the case of the iPhone 14 Pro, damaging the back of the device required replacing everything except the screen, a new phone.But with the iPhone 14, Apple introduced an aluminum protective plate sandwiched between the screen and the back of the device, allowing the sides to be repaired more efficiently. This still allows the front glass to be swapped, but now allows the rear glass to get the same treatment without replacing most of the internal components.
From a design perspective, this means that if I were to do a traditional schematic as if you were looking through the glass at the components, all you would see is the aluminum shield and nothing else. very boring. So instead, what I did was reframe the layout as if you were opening the phone from the back, allowing you to see the camera and components in a whole new way. This is what I meant when I referred to the schematic as upside down.
The decision to process my schematic in this way also presented new challenges as I tried to make these the most detailed schematics I’ve had yet. And by far, the most complex pieces on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus were the camera modules. Crafting these involved fiddling with multiple layers and fills to create a sense of depth to building new elements and textures such as the camera sensor, cover glass, and sensor shift mechanism.
Other parts of the design process involved crafting hundreds of components with overlapping layers, shading, and textures that all needed to fit together perfectly. And even if each component only takes two to three minutes to make, by the time I had made all 482 individual pieces (iPhone 14 Plus), I was looking at a project that took over 20 hours per outline! “
Luckily, the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus shared a lot of similarly shaped components, so thanks to that and good layer management on my part (phew!), once I finished with the iPhone 14 blueprint, I was able to craft one for the iPhone 14 Plus in about half of that time.”
