OneNote gets new icon on Windows 10 and iOS

Microsoft introduced a new look for its Office app icons late in 2018, and they've been slowly making their way out to users since. The latest app to see an icon overhaul is OneNote, which recently picked up its redesigned look on both Windows 10 and iOS (via OnMSFT).

You'll now find the refreshed icon, complete with a modern look that matches the other redesigns, in the start menu, on your home screen, and within the app itself.

In addition to the revamped look for its icon, OneNote on iOS also now supports the second generation Apple Pencil and has added "phrase search." Here's a look at the official release notes:

  • Support for Apple Pencil (2nd Generation): Draw, handwrite, and mark up notes even faster by double-tapping your Apple Pencil to change drawing tools without interrupting your flow.
  • Phrase Search: You can now use quotes around a phrase to search for that exact phrase instead of individual words.

You can check out the new icon on both Windows 10 and iOS now. Presumably, Android will see a similar update before too long as well.

  • Windows 10 Mobile has new icon too ;-)
  • Yeah, it looks something like this... 〽️ Lol
  • Absolutely unnecesary, man.
  • Came to say precisely that. It looks really good on my phone.
  • I'm personally not a fan of the new icons. They are too busy. I know they are trying to make the icons more informative (Outlook icons in notifications reflect the kind of information being delivered: calendar or email) but that ends up just being confusing. You have to squint to get it. It's just not a great implementation. I wish they went in a different direction with the icons.
  • I prefer the current flatter design. Might look better once office 365 programs start implementing the same design style
  • Keep these updates a-coming! Even Windows 10 Mobile got it, noiiiiiiiiiiice
  • Wow new icon! Awesome!!!! 🙄😴
