There were rumors a while ago, although I can't find them anymore, about the default iOS 9 wallpaper being "blue and green." Anyways, the iOS, OS X, and watchOS banners went up at Moscone Center, and the iOS banner was made up of blue and green shapes. So, could that be based on the iOS 9 wallpaper?

I'm more concerned at iOS being in the same circular icon as watchOS while OS X isn't.

Don't bring the watch style icons to iOS, Apple. Please.
Huh, I didn't notice that. It's gonna be a royal pain for the developers who have to redesign all of their icons now...then again, it would actually make it easier to port their apps to watch, I guess...

I actually think the circle watch app icons look better than the iPhone icons.
On the Watch, they absolutely do. On a larger screen like those on iPhone and iPad? I don't think so ... personally, I don't think they'd look great. Especially if they used the same UI for navigating them!

I doubt it has much to do with anything, it's just the overall theme for this year's wwdc; tons of colorful app icons is nothing new. I've been waiting for these type of banners to go up, but maybe they are not this year. They were already up on Friday last year.

I just don't think they'll look good on larger screens than the watch screen, I really wouldn't be too happy if iOS 9 had circular icons

Honestly, it wouldn't look THAT bad. I took out my old, jailbroken iPod so that I could get a good representation of how it would look, but I forgot to turn of the theme I had enabled.

They don't have to redesign. As long as they follow Ive's icon template for iOS 7/8, Apple will just automatically apply a filter on all icons to turn them into circles.

True, but there are many apps which will have important parts of their icons cut off. For instance, all of the GameLoft games have a logo in the corner of the icon which will be cut off.

Heh, I'm not sure that is a bad thing. I hate these badges.

But those are under control of the developer and I doubt Apple's own policies would allow them to effectively just get rid of them list like that.

Yeah, circles look good in social media icons (like Facebook's profile images and Twitter's profile icons). Not app ones.
