In the most recent release, we started replacing legacy Android Open Source Project bitmap icons with modern adaptive vector icons. There are a lot of strong opinions about any aesthetic changes, but we think most people will like the end result when the changes are finished.

It's not finalized and we plan on switching them from the sharp Material style to the rounded Material style which will match the OS style and other app icons better. These kinds of changes are a low priority for us, but we do want to have a visible GrapheneOS style for the OS.

We'll be keeping the default pure black wallpaper for the foreseeable future since it fits the OS. Our current color palette is staying too. Dark theme will become the default once we fix some issues in AOSP apps, and we'll make some UI components use lower lightness levels.

There will likely be a nice GrapheneOS boot animation added in the near future too. Our focus isn't changing the UI so we won't be changing much beyond integrating privacy/security improvements with minimal native style UI support. We do plan to allow denser quick tile display.

While I couldn't care less about the icons, I do think dark themes are absolute insanity for your eyes—just turn on the lights in your room :D But it's a default, so who gives :-) Unfortunately an increasing # of websites only support dark theme.
