Apple changed the Maps icon to show its new spaceship campus – The Verge
Apple has been making all sorts of tiny changes to its app icons in the iOS 11 beta. And today, it made two of the most interesting changes yet: one to Maps, and one to the App Store.The Maps change is a bit more fun (you can see the difference above via iCulture). The icon has, since the iPhone’s inception, shown 1 Infinite Loop — the location of Apple’s longtime headquarters. But with the company’s enormous spaceship campus, known as the Apple Park, now opening up, iOS designers seem to have felt it was time to make a change. So instead, the Maps icon now shows a sliver of the spaceship.Or maybe it’s just this nearby offramp. It’s kind of hard to tell.
