Have you ever looked at your Mac and wished it looked a little more like it belonged in 1984? If you have, you're in luck because there's a new icon and wallpaper pack that is going to be right up your street.

The new Old School icon pack created by Ben Vessey consists of 166 "pixel perfect" icons across both dark and light themes alongside five dynamic wallpapers that are built with massive 6K displays in mind. There is even a provision made for those using Windows machines — ICO files and static wallpapers are included!

The full rundown of what you can expect includes:

  • 166 pixel perfect icons (scroll down for the full list)
  • Dark & Light themes
  • 5 dynamic macOS wallpapers in 6k to complete the look
  • Drag and drop install on macOS with IconChamp (not included)
  • Gold option which includes 5 custom app icons of your choice
  • Want to give your Windows machine a retro Mac vibe? No problem, ICO files and static wallpapers are included

All of that is available right now for just $5.99 plus local taxes. That collection of 166 icons includes all of the most common apps including 1Password, Apple Music, and more. But if your favorite app isn't included you can opt for a special package that will also get your five additional custom icons, built to your specification. That package costs a little extra, as you'd expect.

We can probably all agree that the current Apple silicon machines are the best Macs Apple has ever made. But these icons will sure help remind us of a simpler time. And one that was much more black, white, and pixelated!
