The iPhone User Interface solution for ConceptDraw PRO is now extended with a range of new samples, templates, and vector stencils libraries that support iPhone 6 UI diagrams. These new additions to ConceptDraw Solution Park provide users with graphical user interface elements, UI patterns, and App icons that greatly simplify GUI interface prototyping of new iOS applications.
There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw PRO application by using the iPhone User Interface solution.
Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.
All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or
converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many
other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The iPhone User Interface solution is available to all
ConceptDraw PRO users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software.
Example 1: iPhone Graphical User Interface — Contact Card

An overview of alerts from applications is available from iPhone Settings Notification Center that is illustrated in this sample.
Example 5: iPhone Graphical User Interface — Reminders
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the iPhone 6 Mockup, Content Views, Controls, and Bars libraries from the iPhone User Interface Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.
This sample shows the interface of the iPhone Reminders application. It is one of the applications for Apple iOS. Quickly outline existing iPhone interfaces, or design your own interface for a new application using the pre-designed vector graphical user interface elements.
Both ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software and the iPhone User Interface solution can help creating the
software engineering diagrams you need. The iPhone User Interface solution can be found in the Software Development area of ConceptDraw STORE application that can be downloaded from this site.
Make sure that both ConceptDraw PRO and ConceptDraw STORE applications are installed on your computer before you get started.
How to install
After ConceptDraw STORE and ConceptDraw PRO are downloaded and installed, you can install the iPhone User Interface solution from the ConceptDraw STORE.
To make sure that you are doing it all right, use the pre-designed symbols from the stencil libraries from the solution to make your drawings look smart and professional. Also, the pre-made examples from this solution can be used as drafts so your own drawings can be based on them. Using the samples, you can always change their structures, colors and data.
Since Apple Computer, Inc. became Apple Inc. at the start of 2007, they have led the field in mobile device technology, acquiring a devoted following amongst a general public that happily purchases each new updated version of the iPhone, iPad or iPod. They are noted innovators, popularizing many interface standards within the industry including touchscreen elements and app technologies.
The operating system used to power their devices was created and developed by Apple Inc. exclusively for their hardware, giving a sense of hegemony across the various platforms, and encouraging users to purchase multiple Apple products. Named iOS, it works on the basis of direct manipulation, where pre-defined multi-touch gestures are used to navigate through the operating system — a combination of swipes, taps and pinches allow users to zoom in and out, switch screens and select menu buttons.

The key to effective and efficient navigation, for best cohesion with operating system logic, is a well designed graphical user interface (GUI). A GUI aims to offer a consistent visual language to display app windows, system information, menus and icons in an intuitive fashion, with the expectation that those unfamiliar with the technology can pick up a device and immediately access the software they need.
The iPhone GUI has become something of a standard for smartphones, and tablets and mobile devices in general. It starts with a 'Home' screen, and a list of commonly used applications represented by graphical icons. These tend to include messaging, time and date, camera, weather and maps apps, and a number of affiliate applications such as YouTube, iTunes and the App Store. Adjacent home screens can hold further apps, and can be accessed by swiping the screen left or right. Anchored to the bottom of the screen are the four apps that represent the iPhone's main purposes — phone, mail, internet and music.

A successful GUI requires a planning stage, to determine the suitability and efficiency of certain arrangements. Much like with website planning, a GUI wireframe diagram can be employed to give a skeletal view of the device's screen, upon which elements can be placed and re-arranged as necessary. For GUI developers, designers, or graphic artists working on advertising or infographics, iPhone UI prototype diagrams can help illustrate certain points, and convey messages about usability.
By extending the functionality of ConceptDraw PRO with the iPhone User Interface solution, users have access to a wide range of icon libraries, samples, templates and help materials to help them create professional looking GUI diagrams that showcase iPhone 6 applications and technology.
The app icon library from the iPhone User Interface solution for ConceptDraw PRO
Within the vector stencil libraries are graphic icons depicting all the necessary elements of an iPhone 6 UI, including menu controls, tab bar icons, toolbars, navigation buttons, and of course icons for all the apps you might expect to find on your iPhone home screen. To make the design process even easier, there a number of ready made templates featuring some of the more popular screens and features users come across during everyday use. As with all ConceptDraw solutions, dedicated help materials are available from the website, to provide designers and artists with the tips and tricks necessary to replicate the iPhone 6 UI with the best possible results.
