El Capitan is a tall rock formation located within Yosemite National Park, and the poster child for Mac OS X 10.11. The image below is in its full 5,120 x 3,200 resolution. While best suited for a Mac computer, you could also use this on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
The official iOS 9 wave wallpaper extracted from the beta release is in its full 2,706 x 2,706 resolution, and can be use as a background for your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. You could also use it on your Mac, but make sure to choose either "Center" or "Fill Screen" on the Desktop settings. You could also use "Stretch to Fill Screen" if you don't mind the stretched look.
New iOS 9 wallpapers have been released—download them all as a ZIP file here, or individually in the gallery below.
