One of the important UI design elements in iPhone and iPad apps is the icon. It serves as the gateway or the entry point from which everybody has to go through to gain access to the app. It is a small object that describes the app in simplest visual representation.
Being an element that introduces an application, it is necessary that it has to be creative in order to attract the attention of its users. On iPhones and iPads, the icons that you can see have a distinct square shape with rounded corners. On that small square, you can see that iOS and iPad icons themselves can be considered as works of art. They are creatively designed to appear as realistic illustrations of objects which are not necessarily square in reality. Also, you will be amazed that some appear in 3d. Thanks to the graphic designers with superb imagination and impressive illustrations skills. You will see some of the most beautiful and highly imaginative iOS and iPad icons here.
