More Colorful Windows 10 Icons: People, Alarms, and Maps

Microsoft continues their work on updating icons for built-in Windows 10 apps. One more updated icon is here, this time it is Mobile Plans/Microsoft OneConnect). All the icons are following the modern Fluent Design.

As we now know, these colorful icons are designed for Windows 10X, a special edition of the OS for Surface Neo. Surface Neo is Microsoft's very own foldable PC, which comes with a detachable keyboard, Surface Slim Pen inking. It will run Windows 10X. It will feature two 9” screens connected by a 360° hinge.

Windows 10X includes some advancements in the core technology of Windows that optimize it for flexible postures and more mobile use. We needed to deliver battery life that could drive not just one, but two screens. We wanted the operating system to be able to manage the battery effect of our huge catalog of Windows apps, whether they were written in the last month or five years ago. And we wanted to deliver the hardware performance and compatibility our customers expect from Windows 10.

Windows 10X will be able to run legacy Win32 applications in a container.  Windows Containers isolate software from the host file system. All the file and registry changes required to run an application are packaged into Container Images. It is not clear yet if the Container technology for run Desktop apps will be using Windows Server (shared kernel) or Hyper-V VM containers but since client OSes like Windows 10 only have Hyper-V containers, it is possibly that.

For this new Windows 10 edition, Microsoft is preparing a set of new colorful icons. All the known icons are below.

    Definitely an improvement, in my opinion at least. If you consider it a low bar, I don’t blame you.
