Brand New iPhone UITabBar Interface Designs

Featured Image credit to Zane David

Tab bars in iOS design have become a staple for mobile developers. These navigation toolbars are located at the bottom of an application and feature between 2-5 different tabs. By tapping each one you can switch between common views such as your profile, settings, or activity feed. We have published a previous article looking into iOS tab bars.

In this gallery I want to look more in-depth at this unique mobile interface style. I’ve included some brand new examples of iOS tabbars designed for your inspiration. Any iPhone or iPad app designer can intuitively learn a great deal from this showcase.
