New iOS 11 icons surface for Apple Maps, App Store and Clock; iOS 11 beta 6 is released

New iOS 11 icons surface for Apple Maps, App Store and Clock; iOS 11 beta 6 is released
A tweet from iCulture reveals some new icons discovered on the latest beta version of iOS 11, released today. The new Apple Maps icon has something of an inside joke to it as it shows an automobile heading past Apple Park. In the top right, part of the circular building can be seen on the icon. This replaces the current icon which shows a car driving on the I-280 overpass about to make a left turn.

The App Store icon has been made less complex as the paint brush, pencil and ruler that help form the letter "A" (for App) have been replaced by popsicle sticks? Lastly, the font on the clock app has bolder numbers done in the San Francisco font.

Today, Apple released iOS 11 beta 6 for developers. The update includes a fix for the DirecTV app. Problems with the Notes application have been fixed, and the Apple pencil will now work on  iOS devices with a rotated screen. Some new issues have surfaced, including the lack of a toggle to turn off Auto Brightness in the Display & Brightness section. Instead, disabling this feature requires a trip to Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations.

We expect to see iOS 11 equipped with a customizable command center, peer-to--peer Apple Pay payments in the Messages app, and a new Do Not Disturb While Driving feature to name a few new goodies that are coming.

I thought it was only for developers?? I checked and it doesn’t give me beta 6 option. I’m on beta 5.

I had so many issues with the beta that I reinstalled iOS 10. Rather than fixing all the problems like the phone freezing, they are changing icons.

120 bug fixes in this update with 55 known bugs left and a month to fix them. I’m not getting any problems on beta 6 over here, even the battery life is great.
