New iWork And iLife Icons Leak On Apple's Own Site

21 October 2013

MacRumors:

Ahead of Tuesday’s media event, Apple has revised its Built-in Apps page for the iPhone 5s to reveal the full set of new iOS 7-themed icons for the six iLife and iWork apps offered for iOS. The new GarageBand and iPhoto icons had appeared in the Settings app on some users’ devices last week.

Apple messed up by showing the iPhoto and GarageBand icons in iCloud settings prematurely last week. Although not a common occurrence, Apple has leaked stuff through iTunes and iCloud metadata in the past, so it wasn’t entirely without precedent.

What I wasn’t expecting was for them to screw up again and leak the entirety of the new icon set on their own site ahead of tomorrow’s announcement.

The icons themselves look promising. All of the iWork icons actually feel like they were made with iOS in mind.1 The lucid green Numbers is a little rough, though.

1 The current versions have always felt like an afterthought, merely shoving their Mac iconography into blue rounded rectangles.
