iOS 8 设计 Cheat Sheet

Yet again, Apple managed to surprise the world with its recently launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. What’s new? Both iPhone 6 sisters are largest in the iPhone family, with rounded edges and Retina HD. They both are well toned with 0.27-inch (or 6.9mm) thickness, and are available in three colors- gold, silver and space gray. Besides, Apple moved the power/lock button from top to right side, and reserved Apple Pay for only these two devices.

Since the change in a screen size results in change in the requirements for Human Interface elements, Click Labs decided to do some research, and compiled an exhaustive list on ‘iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User Interface Specifications’ for all the iOS Developers out there. These lists of specifications include Resolution, Display, Iconography, UI Elements and Typography.

In addition, we are giving away our very first iOS 8 Design Graphic User Interface (GUI) Photoshop Design (PSD) template of iPhone 6 Plus. Scroll down for the Free Download.

1) Display

Apple increased the LED screen-size (diagonal) of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from 4 inch (of iPhone 5/5C/5S) to 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch respectively. However, the company maintained the tradition of aspect ratio to 16:9 in both the devices. This means that apps designed and developed for iPhone 5 screen can conveniently scale on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Besides, with the big screen of iPhone 6 Plus supporting the landscape mode which will be similar to that of the iPad, developers can now think of adding landscape view features to their apps.
