Why inconsistent? I think they are consistent because principles for designing icons for Mac OS and iOS are different.
I was wondering, because they were a bit more similar before, especially the tabs color order.
It's a beta... file a radar — don't complain on Twitter.
Does anyone else take this sort of stuff as reminder that, hey, you're doing fine? We all make mistakes, we all have to accept 'good enough' on every project at some point, nothing's perfect at any level of the game.
Get the sense that might not be the case in the rabid world of Design Twitter though, "omg, an opportunity to score points on another designer"
I'm surprised you're actually surprised by this. The core app icons have been inconsistent for a long time. Also, what Gracjan said.
Like I said before, I'm just surprise they changed they order of the colors of tabs. I know there is different guidelines for macOS icons and iOS icons.
Previously it was grey-blue-green-orange for both icons. Now it's not for the macOS icon Contacts. Only THIS detail.
The tab ordering is infuriating, it would be so simple for them to be made consistent that I'm sure it will be fixed in the next beta
