Download all macOS Sonoma Aerial wallpaper

This script helps those who want to get all Aerial wallpapers on macOS Sonoma all at once instead of clicking on settings one by one.

Usage

Just download the script and execute it in your terminal (download.sh).
Copy and paste also work (for those who prefer a single-line version: single-line-download.sh).

Notice that the script SHOULD be run under root user.

Dependencies

  • jq
  • parallel

Install all dependencies simply via brew install jq parallel.
After parallel is installed run sudo parallel --citation first to read the citation notice.

FAQ

download.sh and single-line-download.sh are identical, the latter is for those who prefer a single-line version.
