In the olden days of OS vendors' Human Interface Guidelines they used to
specify things like recommended spacing between controls.
I can find no metrics guidelines in Apple's latest HIG.
Did I miss it?

"*Include about 10 pixels of padding between your image edges and the
button edges.* Even though the edges of an image button aren’t visible,
they still define the clickable area for the button. Padding ensures
that a user’s click registers even when it misses the image slightly.
*Allow adequate spacing between image buttons and other controls.*
Provide enough of a buffer that the user won’t inadvertently click the
button’s hidden frame when attempting to click another control."
