This is How the iOS 7 Grid System Looks on Apple Hardware

Apple Hardware Grid System

Well-known Apple pundit John Gruber recently speculated on The Talk Show podcast that the grid system used to redesign the iOS 7 icons might line up with the rounded-square hardware sold by the company. It turns out he was right, as a number of individuals have gone ahead and superimposed the grid system on to Apple products like the Apple TV, Mac mini and iPod shuffle.

Asides from a few different corner radiuses, the grid system matches almost perfectly with the hardware. Apple design chief Jonathan Ive used to be solely responsible for hardware design before gaining his additional software responsibilities, so it’s plausible that the world-famous designer has carried over some of his practices to iOS.
