Apple software for iPhone, iPad, and Mac is constantly being updated and updated. Some changes are more noticeable than others, such as widgets in iOS 14 or new Focus options in iOS 15. Regardless of what Apple adds, iPhone owners always want more. That is why artists have been imagining themselves getting on the latest iOS versions for years. These are always thoughts of love. And, last week, a new iOS 16 idea matched the price of course online.
Kevin Kal (aka Hacker 34) has been designing concepts for years. This year alone, it has shared ideas for AirPods 3, Windows 11, and Google Pixel Watch rumors. Last week, it released a new concept video that outlines its hopes and dreams for iOS 16, and although it’s hard to imagine Apple with so many of these features, it’s still exciting to see the creators let their creation work egan:
The first feature that Kal shows in his video is regular exposure. This is a feature that Apple does not have to bring to its mobile devices. Being able to check the time and check for notifications without actual communication with the iPhone would be welcome. Having to tap my iPhone to see if I miss any calls, texts, or emails whenever I leave the room is an inconvenience I can do without.
Kal also imagine an iOS 16 where multitasking will receive a major upgrade. Imagine being able to open an app on top of another and having them interface with each other. It has also mocked a new dock app that will slide from the side of the display. Then you can drag the applications from the dock to any part of the display you want to open them.
Therefore, the stars appearing in the iOS 16 concept are interactive widgets. The addition of widgets was among the highlights of iOS 14. Unfortunately, Apple’s iOS widgets are considerably less powerful than Android’s or any desktop device. They are almost non-interactive, and always work as more than just nice shortcuts to specific versions of apps. What if you could edit actual notes, play and pause music, or start a timer directly from the Home screen? You can on Kal’s iOS 16.
We are not sure which, if any, of the Kal features in your iOS 16 machine will be available in real iOS 16 that said, there are a lot of great ideas here, especially the interactive widgets.
