iOS 18 design could resemble visionOS


WWDC23 showed the world the new operating systems of the Big Apple for the end of 2023 and beginning of 2024. Among them was visionOS, el Apple Vision Pro operating system, which completely changes the aesthetics we had become accustomed to between iOS, iPadOS and macOS. Because, although we may not realize it, the visual stability between these systems and even with watchOS is very great and they share many aesthetic elements. A new rumor indicates that iOS 18 will have a complete redesign, leaving behind icons with rounded corners to make way for rounded icons like in visionOS. Will we finally see that redesign in iOS 18?

Goodbye to icons with rounded corners?: the possible redesign of iOS 18

As you can see in the image that you have at the top of the post, the visionOS springboard includes all the glasses applications but with a difference with respect to iOS and iPadOS: The icons are not squares with rounded corners, but completely round, in the purest Android style. It is something strange for those of us who have been working with iOS, iPadOS, watchOS and macOS for years since it gives a more vision brief of the icons. However, it is just as useful.

A new rumor indicates that Apple is working on a deep redesign of iOS 18, although many other analyzes suggest that no, everything will remain as it has been until now. However, this rumor is in line with Mark Gurman's publication that announced that iOS 18 will be the biggest update ever. Maybe A design change of the entire operating system will help make this happen.

Some of the elements we see in visionOS are also hidden in iOS. For example, when we are in the Messages app and we want to send or launch an app widget, we click on the '+' icon and a list is displayed with icons in rounded shape, as in visionOS, and the background becomes blurred. This aesthetic is taken from visionOS and could be the prelude to iOS 18.

Throughout the article we have placed some elements of the visionOS interface that could fit with the possible change of iOS 18. Who knows if for Apple this great update in history includes a change in the design that has been practically the same for almost 20 years or if it will focus more on artificial intelligence functionalities... we will be able to discover it in the month of June, at WWDC24.
