New icons leak for Windows 10X variants of Maps, People, and Alarms

Ever since last year when the Office suite got its first icon update in five years, Microsoft has been steadily facelifting its entire icon set, from File Explorer to Groove Music. Visual Studio's various incarnations got some attention as well, and now it's the turn of the Maps, Alarms, and People app icons to receive a new coat of paint.

Coming courtesy of Aggiornamenti Lumia, the three new ones are apparently redone with Windows 10X in mind - Microsoft's lightweight OS for dual-screen devices. Unlike their monochrome predecessors, these reintroduce the seemingly long-forgotten gradients, which brings them more in line with the company's Fluent Design System. Rather strangely though, the People app icon is very much reminiscent of the old MySpace logo.

Even though the leaks have been semi-constant when it comes to refreshed icons, it's very unlikely we'll see an "official" full set debut earlier than late 2020, which is when Microsoft plans to launch the Surface Neo, its dual-screen halo device running Windows 10X. Some icons may make their way to regular Windows 10, as well as the Surface Duo, despite the latter running Android.
