Such an abrupt redesign of macOS may take much longer to come, but some ideas of this new concept for iOS we may see soon. @iOSNewsAndMore shows us how it imagines the next big software update for iPhone and iPad.
Some of the ideas raised in these designs are not at all crazy , but we must admit that other Apple has been denying them for years. For example, the dark mode has been rumored for many years, and Apple still does not want to implement it. It is also unlikely that we will see split-screen use on the iPhone, even on the 7.9-inch iPad.
These are some of the ideas we can see :
- Delete the name of the apps on the home screen.
- A more discreet volume bar at the top.
- Apps locked with code and unlocked by Face ID
- Guest mode that allows access to only a few apps
- Multiple timers in the Clock app.
- The return of the wish list in the App Store.
- A redesign of Safari with the search bar at the bottom and the rest of the items at the top.
- The split screen by using Split View.
- A redesign of FaceTime and the possibility of group video conferencing.
- A complete redesign of the notifications and their operation.
- Improvements to the Camera app interface.
- The long-awaited dark mode in the operating system.
- App Bar’, a kind of dock for quick access to multiple apps.
The truth is that each and every one of these ideas we’ve seen before, either in other operating systems, in other areas of Apple products, or in other concepts. If they haven’t reached iOS yet it’s either because Apple doesn’t see it as interesting, or because it’s not polished enough yet .
Personally I would apply three of these ideas in iOS . The first one is notification points, with the OLED screen Apple could add a small point that informs us of the existence of a notification without turning on the whole screen. The second idea has to do with blocking apps by code, something quite simple to implement from Restrictions in Settings. And finally, the App Store wish list, but in a more polished way, with a price history, change dates and more options. Let’s see what this WWDC 2018 has in store for us, iOS 12 is supposed to focus on stability, right?
