9-bits:

Teehan+Lax have, at long last, released their Retina-ready iPad GUI PSD. Longtime readers will know that I normally post whenever Teehan+Lax release one of their Photoshop-based mobile UI sets, but this one is different: With the overall resolution in the new iPad, and some of the newer elements in iOS 5.1, the scale of this project was immense (as anyone following Geoff on Twitter already knows). It’s also quite interesting that the file was made in and requires the Photoshop CS6 beta:

It’s a free download right now and, in my humble opinion, one of the best releases of Photoshop to date. Its perfect pixel snapping, grouped layer styles and a few other features enabled us to create the assets with more accuracy, yet remain remarkably editable.

You’ll have to download the PSD to see all of the detail and labor that must have gone into making it. Congrats to the team!

I think the entire tale is summed up with the iWork suite of apps, where Apple states that with iWork and iCloud: Documents you’ve written, presentations you’ve prepared, spreadsheets you’ve made — your iWork apps can store them in iCloud. Which means you can view and edit the same document, in its latest state, on all your devices. And since iCloud automatically updates any changes you make, you don’t even have to remember to save your work. Don’t read the above from the mindset of the savvy geek that you are — read that and think of how it will change computing for your mom or grandparents.

iOS Fabric Texture Tutorial

I attempted this myself last year with mixed results. This looks like a much better technique.

Neven Mrgan's tumbl: All the sizes of iOS app icons

Let’s say you’re working on an icon for an iOS app. The app is universal, so it should run on all iPhones (and iPod touches), and on the iPad. As a designer, you’re used to drawing icons at various sizes; this is a big part of what “icon design” is (as opposed to other types of illustration).

This is an excellent resource for anyone serious about iOS design and development.
