iOS Design Stencils for OmniGraffle

A stencil for designing iOS applications for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The stencil was created a developer for developers and provides the views, controls and symbols in UIKit. All stencils are originally created by hand from native or custom created OmniGraffle shapes and grouped for ease of use. Stencils can be easily scaled to new point resolutions and exported to any vector formats supported in OmniGraffle.


  • Stencil canvas settings are in points and 1pt = 1pt unit scale.

  • Major and minor grid settings are set to 10 x 10 pts. I've found this the most effective grid size setting.

  • Bar button items use Apple Symbols font glyphs. Vector versions of these symbols are in the works.


1.6 - March 18, 2011

  • Add iPad 2 stencil to UI and Wireframes
  • Remove app width UIPickers in iPad stencil. Use Popover controllers.
  • Change backing color of stencil canvases to a light gray as OG Pro 5.2.3 appears to be ignoring stencil background colors.
  • Lighten or darken existing shapes to ensure visibility.

1.5 - February 5, 2011

  • Shorter stencil file names for better readability in desktop and iPad stencil libraries.
  • Merge About and Common into a "General" stencil to save visual space.
  • Apple Symbols font glyphs removed from bar button items replaced with vector shape versions.
  • Add initial wireframe versions for bar button items, pickers, action ahem, alert view, keyboard and standard view layouts.
