Apple's new iOS 7 icon trademark applications began to roll out of the US Patent and Trademark Office late last Friday beginning with FaceTime. On Monday, an avalanche of new iOS 7 icons rolled out of the US Patent Office and Trademark Office (USPTO) with 6 new jumbo color icons along with 17 new black and white icons coming out of Canada's IP Office. Today, USPTO published yet another round of 10 jumbo colored iOS icons. The majority of Apple's new icon designs have been generally applauded by the Apple community with several exceptions being booed in the hopes of getting Jony Ive's attention. Many are hoping that Apple will further refine some of the icon designs before iOS 7 rolls out this fall.
