This iOS concept gives a twist to Siri, multitasking and contextual widgets

iOS Mogi is the name he has given it, because in order to change things, he has also changed the name by referring to a place in Japan. But that’s the least of it, what’s interesting is to see the ideas he puts forward to make the actions in the system less intrusive and more contextual. The protagonist? Siri.

Kévin’s idea is to get Siri to stop occupying the whole screen when we invoke her. But on top of that, that it can perform actions in the background, being actions that are accurate and in reference to what we’ve asked it to do or are doing at the time.

A very clear example is that shown by Kévin himself, he asks Siri to show him images about Japan while he is talking to a contact by Messages. Siri not only compiles a series of pictures of Japan in a small widget at the top, but displays a send button to share them with the Message contact.

The thing doesn’t stop there, but Siri using this widget at the top can do different actions that are extremely useful for the user . For example, you can act as a clipboard manager, accumulating everything you copy to edit, organize it and then paste it from the widget.

No doubt the concept provides very interesting ideas, and many . Some of them would need to be polished because designing to mount an idea is “easy” but then you have to get it to fit the user’s experience. Anyway, of course Apple could take note of some things. Maybe iOS 13. For the moment, you can have a look at the full article that Kévin Eugène has published about it. I only ask that when I am called a notification appears and the full screen is not taken.
