Microsoft is in the midst of semi-moderate redesign that is emphasizing new iconography across its various apps and services. Most recently, the company redesigned the look of its Office 365 icons to match a new modern and flat aesthetic.
The effort to change the Office 365 apps seemed to be an arduous one, but now it seems that the same effort is being ported over the company’s UWP apps. A new leak from Italian blogger Aggioramenti Lumia shows a potential redesign of the Windows 10 UWP Mail and Calendar app icons.

As with most things crowdsourced for feedback, Microsoft’s iconography change has been met with equal parts criticism and praise and we suspect people will have opinions on these new icons as well. At this point in time, it’s unclear if or when Microsoft plans to release and test the new design and on what build as well as for how long.
While the revised icons do match the aesthetic profile, the leaked renders would just be internal suggestions that never see the light of day.
We’ll update with any new information, accordingly.Further reading: Mail and Calendar, Microsoft, Office 365, UWP
