Status bar icons and symbols on the iPhone
There are no changes in the status bar symbols on the Apple iPhone between iOS 7, iOS 8 and iOS 9.
There was a major change between iOS 6 and iOS7 so I have decided to create the following comparison table. In it you will see the original status bar icon for iOS 6 and earlier with the iOS 8 equivalent.
One of the interesting things to note is that the lock and play symbols were removed from the status bar when Apple redesigned iOS 7. Apart from that the only major change is in the design which has been flattened and simplified.
If you would like to see the older iOS symbol tables you will find them here:
