As expected, macOS Sequoia was announced at Apple's WWDC 2024 this week. Nut more than the UI updates, iPhone mirroring and new productivity and video conferencing tools, one of the things that's most attracted the attention of the fans is the animated macOS Sequoia screensaver and wallpaper.

Several developers with access to the new Mac operating system in beta have shared images of the designs, which pay tribute to Susan Kare's original Mac icons from the 1980s. Named simply Macintosh, the wallpaper shows dynamic randomised versions of the designs filling the screen, including the Happy Mac boot-up icon and the dreaded Bomb icon that would appear when the system crashed.
