After spending a portion of its "Let Us Loop You In" media event on the topic of environmental protection, Apple today decided to reward fans who use its Renew program (and those who don't) with a set of exclusive iOS wallpapers.

As discovered by 9to5Mac, the company is giving out a URL on physical cards in retail stores when users trade in old devices for something new, but anyone can visit the site and download the art for themselves regardless of whether or not they've taken advantage of Renew.

Each wallpaper was created by Anthony Burrill, a renowned graphic artist, and was "inspired by nature and people coming together to help the planet." The three pieces of art are called "Nature in Balance," "Nature in Harmony," and "Nature in Us," and come fitted for the screens of the iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro, iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6s, and the iPhone 6/6s Plus.

Users can download the wallpapers on a desktop in a zip file that includes different size versions of each piece of art, but it's easier to navigate to the company's website and save the image directly from the iOS device you wish to use the wallpaper on. That way all that needs to be done is a simple long press to save the image, then visit Settings > Wallpaper > Choose a New Wallpaper, and select one of the new environmental images.

Don't care for these at all.

Why not have some beautiful wallpapers of the countryside instead?

Enough with all this climate change crap.
Yeah! What if we waste all this money making our air, water, and land cleaner! Absolutely terrible!

When climate change isn't a thing, I'm sure people will stop whining about it. Until then, we need to shape up otherwise the next generation of people on this planet are going to be hit by SERIOUS problems when it comes to oil, food etc. But sure, enough with the whining. It's not a big deal right?

Well said. It's quite silly.

If Apple wants sustainable energy, then I can't blame them. But why not represent nature with nature? Really weird.
