Stock Icon Design Comparison: iOS 6 Vs. iOS 7

Stock Icon Design Comparison: iOS 6 Vs. iOS 7


Twitter user @pawsupforu recently shared the following comparison image which aims to showcase the visual design of all of Apple’s stock icons in iOS 6, and then compares these to the visual design of the brand-new stock system icons Apple revealed as part of iOS 7, during its last keynote address.

Perhaps the main difference here is the grid pattern the company has deployed, to obviously attempt to sync the design of its stock icons with the human eye’s need for ‘aesthetically pleasing’ objects.

As a designer, I think it works well (for the most part).

What do you think?
