iPhone apps are tremendously popular and there’s no denying the incredible growth we’re seeing. More folks are adopting Apple technology for mobile use because it is simpler to understand than other alternatives. And because of this we can see some incredible talent in the realm of iOS icons for retina display.

In the gallery below I’ve put together some of my recent favorites to have come out in 2012. The year just started and already there have been some incredible new app releases. Many of these icons are just concept work, yet they can provide tremendous inspiration for other graphics/icon designers.
