Do app icons change when Android does a system update?

    Hi, recently I updated my Android phone to Android Version 10. New features could be seen, but the app icons are the same. Won't they change?

    Sometimes change, sometimes stay the same, depending on what the manufacturer of your particular phone has pushed out, and how they might have customised their Android 10 update, specifically the icon set and launcher it uses.

    System app icons may or may not change. Most likely is that only some of them change anyway.

    Third party app icons do not change, since the update doesn't change those apps at all. Occasionally a system update may impose a style, e.g. masking all icons so that they have rounded corners, but that's unusual.
