So Apple just announced the latest iOS named iOS7 that features a complete new design of the user interface and icon designs. Fast thinking designers from around the world already coming out with GUI and icon templates to share with others, so that we all can produce accurate template and icon designs in preparation for the iOS7.
In this post, I will share with you all the links where you can find these useful templates that can be downloaded for free. Please continue reading to find out the resources!

Basically above are the list of the resources, and hope you find it useful! Actually what do you guys think about the new UI for iOS7? Well, I can see that the negative comments are more than the positive one. In my opinion, the approach for more flat style sacrifies the user experience and it makes it really hard to use for some cases, and also some of the icons where combined the slight gradient, solid color and abstract shapes… to be honest, do not worked well together.
Jeff Escalante wrote a very good analysis of his comment on iOS7. Recommended read. Also, check out the comparison of icon design and opinions at IconFinder blog. Lastly, I think Dribbbler Lea Drapeau’s fork on the design is much better.
