With iOS 11 having now been officially rolled out across Apple devices, we are beginning to see some beautiful examples of what can be achieved using the revised design language.
Aspects such as the larger title text, heavily rounded corners, subtle shadows, and refined buttons and icons, are all inspiring designers and developers to put forward their own take on iOS 11.
Last month’s announcement of the iPhone X has also lead to some beautiful app designs, with designers all pushing for their own unique take on elements such as the status bar and increased screen real estate.
In this article we are going to review some of the finest iOS 11 app designs and concepts that we have seen so far.

Another more ‘default’ implementation, Newbank utilises a limited color scheme with precision, and makes excellent use of depth elements and a card-based layout.
