It looks like Amazon is rolling a new app icon on iOS, and unlike countless other recent app redesigns, it isn’t just a logo dropped inside another white app icon. The new icon cleverly takes.
A new icon that Amazon rolled out on its iPhone app has quietly undergone an alteration after part of the logo drew some comparisons to the mustache worn by Adolf Hitler.

The new logo, which debuted in January, features a cardboard box design with a blue strip of tape on it. Some said the tape, situated above the company's signature smiling 'arrow' logo, looked like the infamous toothbrush mustache worn by the World War II German dictator.

My parents use Amazon nearly every day. They’re going to be lost for the next few days. When they ask where Amazon’s gone, I’ll tell them to look for the cardboard Hitler… https://t.co/u1YcJUBNSN

The image has since been altered to look like a piece of tape folded over in the corner, as if it's ready to be ripped off a package.
Amazon’s new iOS app logo attempt 2: now with 15% less Hitler. pic.twitter.com/vdARYiydTq— Corey Quinn (@QuinnyPig) February 23, 2021
'Amazon’s new iOS app logo attempt 2: now with 15% less Hitler,' one person tweeted.
The company did not mention the unfortunate comparison to the dictator in its reasoning for the latest change.
'Amazon is always exploring new ways to delight our customers,' a spokesperson told The Verge. 'We designed the new icon to spark anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers start their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our boxes on their door step.”
You may have stopped noticing it, but the logo of Amazon's mobile app hasn't changed in ages — it simply said 'Amazon' over a blue shopping cart on a white background, and it wasn't exactly modern.
Now, The Verge noticed that the company has a new, more colorful, and frankly just plain nicer 'smiley' logo. It's not yet live everywhere, but it's visible in a few places, such as the Amazon app page on Apple's UK App Store.
The new icon has only three elements: Amazon's smile logo, a blue 'haircut' and a brown background, all obvious nods to Amazon's shipping boxes (below). Rutracker acronis.

As you can see below, Amazon's app for Android still sports the ole' shopping cart icon, but that will probably change soon.
Regardless of what you think of the new design, it'll certainly be easier to notice among other apps, whose icons often consist of thingies on a white background (we're looking at you, Google).
