I would like to use the swipe down icon:

Swipe down icon

from Control Center of iOS 7 :

Control center iOS 7

in my iOS 7 app to indicate that you can swipe down this pop up :

Pop up to swipe Twigit

How can I get this icon. Am I allowed to use this icon anyway (I do iOS app)

Thanks in advance.

  • It's merely a downward facing chevron (which Apple can not trademark). Couldn't you simply draw it?

I would think twice about using exact Apple icons in your own projects (especially if they are commercial projects), but that said, you can download an iOS7 PSD template from Teehan + Lax that contains the icon you need. They've been sharing these files for a few years now and they're very handy (and pixel-perfect).
