Apple’s latest OS for iPhone, iOS 14, allows users to create personalized home screens. Users can even create custom app icons using the Shortcuts app, which serves as an intermediary between themed icons that can be created and the apps linked to them. Designer Doney Den Ouden has launched a collection of unique custom app icons called Bold, which is giving a fresh, new look to the iPhone app icons.
Hey! 👋 Today I'm launching 𝗕𝗼𝗹𝗱: a beautiful set of friendly and balanced icons for iOS 14.— Doney den Ouden (@doney) October 8, 2020
Most iOS stock icons are now 7 years old 😳 Bold reimagines these icons in the design language of iOS today ✨

Majority of the stock icons in iOS 14 were last updated 7 years ago with iOS 7, and their design has therefore become outdated as the latest design language of iOS is completely different, with bolder typography and rounded icons that give off a more aesthetically pleasing look.
With the design of Bold, app icons have been given a look that matches the current design language of iOS. The icon set is available for purchase on Gumroad, with a starting price of $5.
Bold includes a total of 57 icons which are: App Store, Books, Calculator, Calendar (2 versions), Camera, Clock, Compass, Contacts (2 versions), FaceTime, Files, Find My, Health, Home, iTunes, Mail (2 versions), Maps (2 versions), Measure, Messages (2 versions), Music, News, Notes (2 versions), Phone, Photos, Podcasts, Reminders, Safari, Settings, Shortcuts (2 versions), Stocks (2 versions), Translate (2 versions), TV, Voice Memos (2 versions), Wallet, Weather (2 versions).
The Bold icon set also comes with two versions: light mode and dark mode.
