Along with updates to iWork and iLife today, Apple has overhauled their Podcasts, Find my iPhone, and iTunes Trailers apps to fall in line with the design paradigms of iOS 7. Along with new icons, all three apps have been completely redesigned, with user interfaces that closely resemble Apple’s other iOS 7 apps. While Find my iPhone and iTunes Trailers don’t include new features, Podcasts has received updates to the search tab, Top Charts section, and more. Here’s what the new icons for all three apps look like:


In keeping with today’s theme of “free!” Apple has also set Keynote Remote for iPhone as a free app, though they still haven’t updated it to support the four-inch display on the iPhone 5.

Full release notes for Podcasts can be found below:

  1. Still no iBooks update. Kind of surprised by that since the new ‘flat’ icon leaked about a month ago.

  3. Great. Wait for Remote, iBooks and iTunes U…


  4. have they forgotten about ibooks, find my friends and remote??


  5. No guys, they haven’t forgotten about iBooks, Remote and iTunes U. Apple will probably release new versions of those apps in the next few days…but I’m not 100% sure that they will…


  6. What about keynote remote? I paid for that shit, and it doesnt even have iphone 5 support :@


  7. Why does the trailer icon still have the gloss overlay?


  8. Still no iBooks update what is this?


  9. Why do they keep making everything uglier? #whiteinterface

    Come on Remote app!!!!!


  11. Podcast app looks and feels 100% better than the last version. Easy to adjust the settings, plays just like the music app. My only complaint continues to be how Apple treats landscape mode for playing audio – the music app shows a bunch of thumbnails from albums that aren’t even the one currently playing, and the podcast app just keeps you in portrait mode but turned on its side.

    I would think there’d be a more elegant solution…
