Apple modified the Maps icon to point out its new spaceship campus


Apple has been making all kinds of tiny adjustments to its app icons in the iOS 11 beta. And right this moment, it made two of essentially the most fascinating adjustments but: one to Maps, and one to the App Retailer.

The Maps change is a little more enjoyable (you possibly can see the distinction above via iCulture). The icon has, for the reason that iPhone’s inception, proven 1 Infinite Loop — the situation of Apple’s longtime headquarters. However with the corporate’s monumental spaceship campus, known as the Apple Park, now opening up, iOS designers appear to have felt it was time to make a change. So as an alternative, the Maps icon now exhibits a sliver of the spaceship.

Or perhaps it’s simply this close by offramp. It’s sort of laborious to inform.

At this time’s different icon change is to the App Retailer emblem. Apple has tweaked the App Retailer’s icon right here and there over the previous decade, however that is the primary time it’s misplaced the pen and brush that make up its form. It’s now only a sequence of strains that sort of seem like overlapping sticks. I don’t suppose anybody’s going to argue that the outdated icon was superb and shouldn’t be modified, however this new one seems to be like some bizarre knockoff app that one way or the other bought put in in your cellphone. Right here’s a comparison put together by iCulture:


iOS 11 remains to be in beta, although, so all of that is topic to vary. Apple might make slight tweaks to the icons, or it might scrap them altogether and return to the iOS 10 variations.

Apple’s been tweaking different icons a bit, too. It barely adjusted the clock icon right this moment, making the numbers a bit thicker. And it additionally made this weirdly tiny change in July:

MacRumors has a story from final month, exhibiting adjustments made to the Contacts, Reminders, and Notes apps as properly. The Reminders icon has since been reverted to the outdated model — so once more, there’s no assure the adjustments will ship.

iOS 11 must be completed up in a few month and can probably launch forward of latest iPhones in mid to late September.
