Prior To iOS 7 Unveil, Square App Icons Pop Up In Developers Portal

Apple’s WWDC 2013 keynote address takes place on 10th June. The company has confirmed that it will be focusing on iOS 7 at the event. Much has been rumored about the upcoming design changes in iOS 7. The yet to be announced iOS update is reportedly going to tout a ‘flat’ design. Some developers have reportedly noticed that their app icons are being displayed as square and don’t have the conventional rounded edges. This is believed to be a subtle sign of the design changes which will be introduced in iOS 7.

Developers normally uploaded app icons that have sharp corners, the rounded edges affect would automatically be applied by Apple’s system. Apparently the system which used to do this has been pulled out less than a week before iOS 7 is to be unveiled, rounded edges of app icons are no longer being displayed in the developers portal. Apple recently released the official WWDC 2013 app, it has some flat design aesthetics. The new app is also being considered by some as a subtle hint of iOS 7 design changes. The fact remains though, you just never know it with Apple. The company will officially take the wraps off iOS 7 next Monday, only then we’ll know for sure what sort of a design the upcoming update has. [Image via AppleInsider]
