We have seen a multitude of flat icon themes ever since the jailbreak for iOS 7 was released, I think we can all agree on that. But not every theme has introduced what Apple did with iOS 7: flatness and layers. Most themes we have seen focus solely on the flat aspect of iOS 7; however, i7cons combines flatness and layers. This theme was developed from the mind of Steven Portas. It includes 80+ box fresh icons ready for any device, that’s right, any device. And guess what? This theme is free. There is a ‘pro’ version on its way which will introduce UI enhancements, new status bar icons, and default/launch screens to match all themed icons. The developer has also stated that both the free and pro version will receive all the icons.

So now let’s take a look at the icons.

As stated before, these icons combine flatness and layers. Each application here contains simplistic logos with a drop shadow. The logos themselves reveal the simplicity that we have come to love from Apple, but by showing the drop shadow onto the background we get the sense of depth. The drop shadows also reveal a sharpness with a low opacity which contributes to the flatness of iOS 7. You can find the list of currently supported icons below as well as upcoming supported icons. Also, feel free to contact the developer on Twitter to request icons or say thanks!
