New iPhoto and GarageBand icons hint at imminent launch of redesigned apps


Folks at 9to5Mac have spotted all-new icons for iPhoto and GarageBand within the iCloud Storage Management section of the Settings app.

The redesigned apps are flatter like some of the app icons for the stock apps in iOS 7. It indicates that Apple may be gearing up to launch a revamped version of iPhoto and GarageBand sometime soon.

Please note that the icons for the apps haven’t been updated, these icons are displayed in iCloud Storage Management section of the Settings app (Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage) if you’ve installed these apps.

These icons can be updated over the air, but it looks like Apple may have pushed out the redesigned icons accidentally.


While most of the stock apps have been redesigned for iOS 7, a number of apps such as iPhoto, GarageBand, iMovie and iWorks app are yet to be updated for iOS 7.

9to5Mac speculates that Apple may unveil the redesigned apps for iPhoto and GarageBand at the iPad event on October 22.

iPhoto and GarageBand are available for $4.99 each, however iPhoto is free if you have purchased your iOS device on or after September 1st.
