New Apple developer page guides designers through iOS 7, OS X

updated 12:03 pm EST, Fri February 28, 2014

Site gathers together previously disparate content

Apple is hosting a new webpage at its developer center, highlighting resources for designers looking to tailor their apps for the look and feel of iOS 7 and OS X. Although most of the page's content -- which includes videos and text documents -- was already available, it was previously scattered across pages devoted to different subjects.

A new page linked off of the designer guide focuses on "UI Design Dos and Don'ts." The list guides people through topics like layout, font size, element spacing, and how big touch-sensitive elements should be. In the latter case, for example, Apple notes that a button should measure at least 44x44 points in order to be reliably tapped by a finger.
