New leaked image shows iOS 18 with visionOS-like design

An alleged iOS 18 design resource surfaced on Tuesday, showcasing a new, glassy design that may take a page from visionOS‘s book.

The changes are subtle and not easy to spot, but if you squint, you’ll notice glass-like buttons with reflective edges. This is similar to how the UI looks when using the Apple Vision Pro.

MacRumors obtained the image from an anonymous source who purportedly got it from an iOS engineer, but are careful to note that they cannot attest to its authenticity. The image will allegedly be included in the iOS 18 Apple Design Resources.

If the image is real, that would mean iOS 18 would borrow design elements from visionOS. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard this suggested, either, as a rumor in early February essentially said the same thing.

Other sources have also suggested that a significant redesign is coming down the pipeline for Apple’s next major iOS update. Bloomberg’s previous take was that while iOS 18 may borrow some design cues from visionOS, it wouldn’t mirror the design completely.
