iOS 6 GUI PSD For iPhone 5 Is Now Available For Download [Free]


Teehan+Lax has just released iOS 6 GUI PSD for the iPhone 5, which can now be downloaded from their website. The designers have released the PSD as a free license file (13.79 MB), so that users can “conceive, design, pitch and build really great software that we’ll come to use on a daily basis” (via iClarified).

They say that of all their iOS GUI Photoshop creations, the one for the iPhone is by far the most popular, which is whey they take it pretty ‘seriously’. On asking why it’s free, they say the answer is simple: Create more value than you capture.

This version, iOS 6 for iPhone 5, is a bit different than previous version. Those of you who have downloaded and used these files have probably noticed they’ve become quite bloated. As fast as our computers are today, they still get pretty sluggish when working in a document that contains tens of millions of pixels with hundreds of shape layers. This time around we focussed on making the file a bit more usable. It’s smaller in file size and has a reduced canvas making it quite a bit more manageable.

If you think the designers have missed something common, you can let them know via Twitter.

    Not too sure what it is but if I read it correctly I think these are to help developers create apps without having to create their own images maybe? Or what? Lmao

  • GUI is graphic user interface so long story short, system image files. And PSD is a Photoshop file type. If I designed apps then this would come in handy or even a website designer.

    In the past when my company has made iOS apps, I often get tasked with creating mockup video demos for either funding or promotional materials. Having these templates make it much quicker and easier to visualize how an app will look on the device. Also ironically, my company used to be located a block from these guys (according to that map image) 😛

    It’s useful for people to mock up how an app will look before it’s been written so they can plan how to best utilize screen real estate and better visualize what they want to accomplish. It’s also useful to have images like this to show to bosses and investors so they can get an idea of what the end product is going to be. Designers can also weigh in with usability comments. It’s far easier to tweak an image than code. Once everything is mocked up a developer can then go to work making the app come to life as laid out in the blueprint. Not sure what classifies it as LMAO.
