    I'd always assumed the icons for Phone, and Messages were solid colour.
    But after more than a year, I just noticed they have really subtle diagonal lines, a sort of hatching.

    Now I can't not notice it!
    How have I only seen this now??

    lol @ the things I get worked up about

    Are you one of those who worries about fingerprints on the back of their phone? :D

    Ahh so I'm not so slow after all. Peculiar though, I wonder why they changed them.

    Really? I noticed that the 1st day. I guess I'm just more observant.

    Did you notice the address on the "Maps" app? :)

    Also, the "Photos" app is a sunflower. ;)

    Yes, that was sarcasm

    Somewhat related, the other day it was 73 degrees and Sunny in my town and I unlocked my phone and saw 73 and sunny displayed on the weather app icon. I never paid attention to what temp. it said before so I got excited for a second thinking the icon updated to your local weather like calendar shows the current date. Then I actually thought about it and recalled it always saying 73 and sunny.

    Also, I never notice a voice memo app on my screen until about June 17th...

    just kidding.
