WiFi and cellular status bar icons change position again [order has been restored]

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring the most joy. Google often uses Android Developer Previews to test small changes and gauge public opinion about them before a final release. This may or may not be such an example. Dev Preview 3 reverted a small change made in the last version, namely changing the order of Wi-Fi and Cellular icons in the status bar.

Admittedly, this seems like a really insignificant modification. But there were clearly a lot of users annoyed by the change, which forced Google to revert to the previous state. If nothing else, it looks weird when cellphone comes first. The angles of the two icons fit together perfectly when the WiFi leads. If you don’t believe me, take a look:

So this is it. A very small change, but which will probably please many Android enthusiasts. Well done, Google.
