Not long ago, Bloomberg shared insider information about the key innovations in iOS 13. In addition to the highly anticipated night mode, another important and long overdue change will be a complete redesign of the desktop. However, only in the iPad version. Let’s consider how would look like the updated appearance of the home screen.
When in 2010 Steve jobs showed the world the iPad, many analysts criticized: that the company has not introduced an innovative product, but only showed an “enlarged iPhone”. Over time it became clear that negative predictions absolutely not justified – Apple tablets has quickly gained its loyal fans.
Yes, criticism of those times it was difficult to call constructive, but the truth is, in their words, was all the same. For almost a decade, uses logic iPad desktop iPhone. Yes, during this time, there were visual improvements – like appearance more functional dock bar in iOS 11. But we can not ignore one – interface elements and icons on the home screen take the strength of only 20-25% of the total space. This is most evident on the 12.9-inch version of iPad, where it remains even more unused space. It is obvious that the time has come for radical changes.
So, how can be updated the desktop?
The rst new feature is the possibility to fine-tune the interface, since the iPad Pro is positioned as a tool for the job. For example, the desktop could be a special area for immediate start of pre-configured applications in the “Split View”. Or for recently used files. Possible variations are limited only by the imagination.
The second – interactive, and fully customizable widgets to embed on your home screen. Of course, this concept is entirely borrowed from Android. However, there is nothing bad – if the widgets allow quick access to certain functions, and thereby save time.
Third – string status. This element of interface does not change throughout time. Ideally, to transfer a good experience with macOS. Why not do a quick setup of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth without going to settings? Or to give access to the status of third-party developers? Ideas are actually very a lot of.
