Pac-Man iPhone Wallpaper

Updated for iPhone XS/Max/XR.

This wallpaper uses actual sprites from Pac-Man, and is probably as close to exact as you can get it. Here’s what it looks like on my phone (as of a few years ago):

Instructions for use:

  • Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn “Reduce Motion” OFF
  • Tap through to the following images, and hold down to “Save Image”
  • From your Photos app, go to your Camera Roll and press the lower-left share button
  • Choose “Use as Wallpaper”
  • Keep “Still” chosen and do not move/scale
  • Choose “Set”, then “Set Home Screen”
  • Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn “Reduce Motion” ON

I’ve made a few variations – one with no ghost home, one with no top/bottom border, and one with neither. But you can also download the PSD (5, 6-8, Plus, X, Max/XR) to make your own.


The following links are for iOS 8 to iOS 7:


The following links are for iOS 6 to iOS 4.2:

  • Ghost home and borders (3GS, 4, 5)
  • No ghost home (3GS, 4, 5)
  • No borders (3GS, 4, 5)
  • No ghost home or borders (3GS, 4, 5)

P.S. – the iPhone 4 versions are not just upscaled versions of the iPhone 3GS ones – Apple knocks each icon down by a single pixel once it’s twice as big, so I had to nudge each wallpaper down by 1.


The following links are for iOS 4.1 and below:

  • Ghost home and borders (3GS, 4)
  • No ghost home (3GS, 4)
  • No borders (3GS, 4)
  • No ghost home or borders (3GS, 4)
