    I've made this on PS CS6 in 5 minutes give or take. It looks much better without white border. What are you thinking about new icon? Better? Worse?

    Why not make the post in one of the numerous iOS 7 icon threads that are still active?

    I think the icon needs a little more than a blue border.

    Looks too much like the clock, IMO..

    And the Safari icon doesn't "need" anything.

    The blue contrasts with the needle better than white does.

    Looks better. Either way, they should just redesign the Safari icon in general. Only because they have an actual compass app that comes with iOS.

    Of all the Safari redesigns I've seen so far, this one's my favourite:

    (Of course, it's not my work. I'm not sure who created it, but whoever did, did a nice job.)

    Would look better as this bookmark icon. Or no circle at all

    Too much white space in the middle. But I would take that mock up over the current icon.

    Much better, I'd be absolutely fine with that.

    It's much better than the stock one.

    Old Safari icon was map with compass over it, at least suggesting something to do with safari. Now icon is just compass, and no matter how nice it's rendered, it's a compass icon, not Safari icon, and it's weird to see it alongside the compass app. I think first thing that should be done with this icon is a better metaphor, not better rendering.

    Sure, but it can't be done this way because of the circle. It has to follow the "icon design pattern".

    Imho that pattern is just random lines not following any standards like the rule of thirds ore the golden cut. At least i haven't noticed it.

    Agreed. How about a compass needle over an outline of Africa? Or, instead of an outline, maybe the icon could be blue, with a depiction of Africa in the middle that's a slightly lighter shade of blue, so you can barely see it. That might suggest a safari.

    I like these better, designed by Louie Mantia.

    Too intricate for the remaining icons. Ditch the N, S, E, W and edge triangular indents and maybe it's a go

    This is even better:

    Judging from the watermark in the bottom-right, I'd say it's by Patrick Mauldin. And yeah, it's a nice icon.
