Project Purple

It has been revealed the original iPhone was developed in a locked down building under the name “Project Purple”.

Because of the secrecy involved, the team decorated the building with Fight Club references. If you don’t think this demands a wallpaper, you’re weird.

Forstall said that “on the front door of the Purple Dorm we put a sign up that said ‘Fight Club’… because the first rule of that project was to not talk about it outside those doors.”

The full size I designed the wallpaper in is 3200x2048px. I don’t know why Apple uses 3200px as width for the default wallpapers in Mountain Lion but it seems a good width for now. And a height of 2048px makes this big size perfectly usable for the iPad 3 too.
