iOS7 icons poll

According a to a poll on mobile polling site Polar, iOS 7’s icon are more popular than those in iOS 6.

The poll itself, which asks whether users prefer each of the stock iOS 7 icons or their iOS 6 equivalents, has already attracted over 95,000 votes. In most cases, a majority of voters preferred the stylings of iOS 7’s icons with only a few notable exceptions. Camera, Game Center, Safari and Reminders all lost out to their predecessors, with voters favouring the iOS 6 version of their icon.

The margins between votes greatly vary, from the all-out win of iOS 7’s iTunes icon to the more marginal calculator icon. On the whole, though, iOS 7’s popularity looks fairly healthy and a few more tweaks over the next series of beta releases could well see the icons that haven’t fared so well gaining more votes.
