New icons for the Settings app were allegedly spotted in the upcoming Preview build for Windows 10 Mobile. Microsoft apparently polished a few icons, making them more suitable for the settings pages they represent, giving them the Anniversary update look.

Microsoft enthusiast @tfwboredom spotted this change and shared it with his followers. These new icons should arrive for Insiders in Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14342, which has yet to be released.

You can check out the new look of Windows 10 Mobile settings app icons below:

It appears that Microsoft is focused on the Settings app in the recent Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds. Microsoft already updated a few settings pages in the previous build and some features of the system even received their own settings pages that aren’t available in the public version of Windows 10 Mobile.

As we can see, the upcoming build 14342 will also bring improvements to the Settings app. For now, we know about icons but it is also possible that Microsoft will release more changes or features that enthusiasts weren’t able to spot.

As for the build itself, we don’t have any other information about it. Microsoft hasn’t announced the build yet, so we don’t know which features and improvements will be included and its release date is still unknown. But since the previous build was released nearly two weeks ago, we should expect this release to be unveiled by Microsoft very soon.

Until Microsoft announces the new build, you can tell us in the comments: What do you think about the re-designed icons of Windows 10 Mobile’s Settings app?
