Apple last month announced the MacOS Big Tune with a newly designed interface with new icons for almost all native applications on the system. And if you don’t want to mix new icons with old ones, you can now replace them with more suitable versions.
Third-party apps are expected to update their icons only after following the new guidelines later this year with the release of Max Big Tune, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to wait a few months to get a more consistent experience with the icons.
Designer Stegen de Vries has created a custom icon pack for a few popular MacOS apps like Twitter, Pages, Keynote and Visual Studio Code. These custom icons follow the same style as the new icons from Apple presented in the MacOS Big Tune, with shadows and 3D effects.
According to Stegen in a comment on Reddy, more icons will be added in the future. It is also worth noting that the pages and keynote icons are the official Apple icons featured in the promotional images, especially the MacOS Big Tune. You can download Stigen’s custom icons here.
Twitter users have shared their pack with custom icons for @basvanderploig slack, sketch, skype, telegram, tweetboat and more. These icons are available for free here on this website.
