The icons of macOS Big Sur seem an evolution of those of iOS, they are similar but have shadows and effects that give volume and relief, and some new Apple app icons for iOS seem to follow that same line.
It’s a rumor we’ve heard before: iOS 15 might change iOS icons, and these Apple apps seem to be one example. Yesterday Apple updated the Apple Music for Artists app and now the flat and colorful design has been replaced by a white and embossed design
But that’s not the only icon that has changed for this design language. The App Store Connect application It was also updated a few months ago with a very similar design, changing the flat design to add depth.
The clues that Apple gives us
As we can see, the two new icons are very similar. White background with a line crossing it near the edge and the Embossed Apple Music and App Store symbol and with shadows in the center. Apple may be giving us clues about the new iOS 15 icons.
In addition, the icons set aside the color to totally white, something that could make them change easily depending on whether we turned on light mode or dark mode.
Fortunately there is not much left to know about iOS 15 and these supposed new icons that Apple is preparing. The company has already announced the date for WWDC 2021, and the keynote address will feature iOS 15 and the rest of the operating systems.
