    Soooo I was just cruising around looking for new icons for the iPhone...when I stumbled across this:

    New icons, big deal you say....but from Apple's website!?

    http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/icons_screensavers/comiciphoneicons.html

    They have a new icon set for download on their site, but yet they dont support hacking the phone...this seem fishy to anyone else? :confused:

    Maybe they could enlighten us, on how to replace icons without hacking our phones?

    These are not icons for your iPhone, but rather for your computer that are inspired by the iPhone. That, and this is not from Apple, but from a third party vendor.

    I know that they are from a third party vendor, but they are still hosted on Apples website which regulates what is uploaded and available for download...and someone just happened to make the 16 iPhone icons with the correct pixel dimensions for the iPhone, for the Mac OS?

    What would anyone use these icons for besides the iPhone...

    The fasticon.com website does describe them as "16 freeware replacement icons" That would seem to imply they wre intended to be used on the iPhone.

    anything they want? Ive been to the fasticon website, I know that they make icons that people can use for other things as well as icons for the iPhone.

    My only point was that:

    -Apple has a regulated download page
    -Apple has icons on their download page, that are, if not specifically mentioned, are for the iPhone.

    It just seemed weird to me that will all the hype the last couple days about them being so against hacking they would have something like this up on their website...thats all, jeeze :rolleyes:

    The icons are not the pixel dimensions for the iphone. These icons are 128x128 and iphone's are 60x60.

    ah, my bad. Im at work and I cant download them, but I thought when I downloaded them before they are the right dimensions.

    Anyway, still interesting to me Apple would have these icons up.
