We expect the iPad Pro to be unveiled next week, but until then we got a concept render showing how the upcoming tablet would shine.
Kevin Eugene, a web developer, produced the design that shows the potential Siri improvements and removal of the home button. In the end, according to him, the tablet could be turned into a multitasking powerhouse.
Eugene published the concept on UX Collective, a Medium blog, and it is based on a redesign referred to as iOS Mogi. He envisioned that, instead of Siri taking up the whole screen, the design will feature an interface capable of sliding in from the right and displays results. This would enable users to keep working and interact with the results, like dragging and dropping a photo into the document they are currently working on, for example.
Rumors becoming reality
The iPad Pro comes with a lot of rumored changes and this idea shows how they could make it more useful. On the 30th of October, in New York, Apple will hold an event during which we expect to see the iPad Pro unveiled. Apparently, it is based on the design of the iPhone X, without a home button, opting for face recognition and a smaller bezel instead.
The current ‘Split View’ could be changed by the swiping interface. From two apps running side-by-side, we will get a ‘flow’ view that allows multiple apps to run side-by-side and the user can move between them by swiping the bottom of the screen.
This feature will use the bottom bar of the iPhone X as a starting point. Users have to swipe up to go back to the home screen and right to move to recently used apps. The iPad will have the bar becoming a scroll bar.
