How to Download and Use Adobe XD UI Kits for iOS on Windows
Adobe XD is a powerful tool for designing and prototyping user experiences for web and mobile apps. One of the features that makes Adobe XD stand out is the ability to use UI kits, which are collections of common design elements such as icons, buttons, navigation bars, and more. UI kits can help you save time and create consistent designs that match a specific platform or style.
In this article, we will show you how to download and use Adobe XD UI kits for iOS on Windows. iOS UI kits are designed by Apple and follow the iOS design guidelines. They can help you create realistic and beautiful interfaces for iPhone and iPad apps.
Step 1: Download the iOS UI kit
The first step is to download the iOS UI kit from the Apple website. To do this, follow these steps:
Open Adobe XD and click on the menu icon in the upper-left corner of the application window.
Select Get UI Kits > Apple iOS. This will open a web page in your default browser.
On the web page, click on Download For Adobe XD. This will download a DMG file to your computer.
Step 2: Extract the iOS UI kit
The next step is to extract the iOS UI kit from the DMG file. A DMG file is a disk image file that is commonly used on macOS, but not on Windows. To open a DMG file on Windows, you will need a third-party software such as 7-Zip or WinRAR. To extract the iOS UI kit, follow these steps:
Find the DMG file that was downloaded and right-click on it.
Select Open With > 7-Zip (or WinRAR) from the context menu.
In the 7-Zip (or WinRAR) window, double-click on the iOS 13 Adobe XD folder to view its contents.
Select the UI Elements + Design Templates + Guides folder and click on Extract.
Choose a destination folder where you want to save the extracted files and click OK.
Step 3: Use the iOS UI kit
The final step is to use the iOS UI kit in your Adobe XD project. To do this, follow these steps:
Open Adobe XD and create a new document or open an existing one.
Navigate to the destination folder where you saved the extracted files and open the UI Elements + Design Templates + Guides folder.
Inside this folder, you will find several XD files that contain different UI elements for iOS, such as keyboards, status bars, tab bars, alerts, etc.
Double-click on any XD file that you want to use and it will open in Adobe XD.
Select any UI element that you want to copy and press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Command+C (macOS) to copy it.
Switch back to your original document and press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Command+V (macOS) to paste it.
Adjust the size, position, color, and other properties of the UI element as needed.
