iPhone with iOS 16: Unusual concept wants to change operation

0 11

It still seems a bit premature to speculate about iOS 16, after all we won't see Apple's big iPhone update until summer 2022 at the earliest. However, we are already receiving a crazy idea that is well worth seeing from Italy. He wants to turn the usual operation completely upside down.

It has only been possible to install iOS 15 on the iPhone for almost two months, and understandably there are no tangible references to iOS 16 in the rumor mill. After all, Apple should show the upcoming update at the earliest in about six months at the in-house developer fair. Of course: speculating and “spinning around” is allowed.

Concept for iOS 16: Unusual operation of the iPhone

This is what the Italian designer Andrea Copellino is doing now with his somewhat crazy idea for iOS 16 . He was particularly impressed by the homescreen, the control center and the multitasking. If Apple should take an example from the design, then we will have to rethink the operation (source: Behance, Andrea Copellino).

The first look goes to the home screen. Obviously inspired by Android at first, because a central clock widget and a search bar dominate the upper area. But the real revolution lies beneath it. Instead of swiping horizontally through different pages as usual, one simply scrolls vertically and feels “endlessly” through the apps. Meanwhile, the dock hovers over the app icons. Looks crazy, but what would be the advantage?

Copellino writes:

“This new homescreen is a vertical list. The layout improves usability as the symbols can be reached from a lower, more accessible part of the screen surface. "

The designer could be right, because there is no need to reach around in the upper part of the display with one-handed operation . Last but not least, users of an iPhone Pro Max would appreciate this.

Multitasking and control center united

Another exciting idea comes up with multitasking. In the view we not only see the app cards we already know, but also the control center. The latter occupies the lower part of the screen and can be scrolled horizontally. This means that all elements can be easily reached with one hand, and dislocated fingers are a thing of the past. The scaled-down app cards are also still easy to reach. They now concentrate more on the apps or the associated icon itself, the content of the cards is rather irrelevant.

With the current iOS 15, Apple has given us this cool function, explains in the video :

This brings the multitasking interface closer to the quick and efficient program change on the Mac , which can be reached using the command key + tabulator. Most of the time we know which app we want to switch to. The detailed view of the maps or app content is negligible.

The opinion of the editor, Sven Kaulfuss: The draft is pleasing, how often do I catch myself doing breakneck finger exercises, for example, just to reach the control center – hardly possible with one hand from the iPhone X onwards. On the other hand, the multitasking view can be reached more quickly with the thumb if the control center could now also be reached – a dream. With iPhones with a home button it worked and still works, why not as in this draft with newer models with gesture control?
