Apple’s iOS 7 Icon Redesign – Good or Bad? iOS 7 Icon Design Showcase

Advertisement

Flat design choices with web sites and now operating systems are becoming a theme in 2013. Now along comes Apple with its overhaul of the UI for the Apple iOS operating system that is used in their range of iPhones, the iPod touch, the iPad and iPad mini.

The still to be released iOS 7 has been widely seen and written about. As the screen captures show, gone is the darker more dab-looking appearance in favor of a much brighter, colorful look which removes the use of shadows.

The move to a flat design without shadowing actually makes sense. Previously screen resolutions were so limited that one needed shadows to fill in for lack of clarity and help make out small, low resolution icons. However, today with their Retina Display on many Apple devices, it is safe to dispense with this darker shadowy look and embrace color & depth instead.

Recent polls taken, such as the one by the Impact Factory, show that the voting public is generally in favor of most of the iOS 7 icon redesigns, with the possible exception of like Game Center, Camera, Safari and Reminders icon designs. But then, Apple cannot hope to please everyone all of the time.
