Where to Find the Latest iOS Design Patterns

My top 3 spots to learn about the newest iOS design patterns

BY TERESA FONG

When updating or creating a new product, it’s important to follow the latest iOS patterns. From spacing to screen sizes, designers and developers should be aware of any changes before starting to wireframe.

My favorite resources to check out before hitting Figma are the three below:

This unofficial iOS guide by Ivon Mynttinen is regularly updated and is so detailed that it even has the differences between points and pixels. Each section is illustrated and easy to follow.

Erik D. Kennedy runs his highly rated UI/UX classes as well as writes comprehensive blogs. His sections are illustrated and well-written, making it easy to create an iOS app from scratch.

Of course, the easiest place to visit is straight to Apple. They have written a detailed guideline, but went further to create a handy “UI Design Dos and Don’ts” for those who are more visual.
