Apple Is Asking Developers For iOS 7-Optimized App Icons

As part of iOS 7’s dramatic UI changes, app icons have been slightly enlarged and with iOS 7 release being just around the corner ( presumably Sept 10th, or later the same week ), Apple has started asking developers to submit larger app icons that are optimized for iOS 7.

As part of iOS 7’s dramatic UI changes, app icons have been slightly enlarged and with iOS 7 release being just around the corner ( presumably Sept 10th, or later the same week ), Apple has started asking developers to submit larger app icons that are optimized for iOS 7.

The non-iOS 7-optimized app icons have a small white border around it, as shown in the screenshot above ( Netflix icon vs iOS stock icons ).  In order to avoid this interface issue, developers will need to include larger icons in their applications. iOS 6 icons on the iPhone come in at 114 x 114 pixel resolutions, while iOS 7 icons are slightly larger at 120 x 120 pixel resolutions. For the iPad, iOS 6 icons are at resolutions of 144 x 144, and on iOS 7 they come in at a resolution of 152 x 152
