Four Things We Wish Apple Will Improve On The iPhone X Come iOS 12
So far, Apple has been successful with their high-stakes venture, the iPhone X. The phone introduced a lot of new features in this edition such as the bezel-less OLED display, the removal of the home button, and, last but not the least, the adoption of a notch.
While the iPhone X is certainly seamless when it comes to hardware, that doesn’t translate wholly to the software. If you own the device, you’ve probably noticed a lot of UI problems within the handset’s firmware, especially with the Control Center, which obviously screams ‘sloppy job.’
In line with this, we’ve created a list of things that Apple should definitely amend on the iPhone X through the next iOS update, the iOS 12.
A Dark Mode Option
As you now probably know, the iPhone X is the first-ever Apple device to sport an OLED screen – foregoing the traditional LCD display. We’ve all seen that, although OLED displays are a cut over LCD screens, it doesn’t come without sacrifice. OLED displays are notorious for consuming more power than any other display, which is pretty problematic when partnered with Apple’s battery problems.
In regards to this, it’s only natural for Apple to address the problem by adopting a dark display mode, which will fix issues on battery consumption. We think that it won’t be a problem for Apple as the feature has already been active for Android devices for years now. Now, we just have to wait and see.
Picture-in-Picture Mode (PiP)
In the past, it wasn’t necessary for Apple to really integrate PiP mode into their devices seeing as their handsets didn’t possess much screen room. However, now that Apple has implemented a bigger screen display for the iPhone X, it’s going to be a necessary fixture as people want to do multiple things at the same time.
PiP has already been incorporated into the Android Oreo so, if Apple doesn’t want to get left out – then they really need to pick up the pace and employ a similar or improved feature.
Faster Face ID Detection
We can all agree that Face ID is one of Apple’s best inventions yet, however, it isn’t without its flaws. Though it’s precise, it’s obvious that the feature has not been optimized for speed. With this in mind, we urge Apple to take action and implement tweaks and fixes to improve Face ID detection.
Control Center Placement
Owning an iPhone X is like a journey to the unknown. As you all know, Apple has implemented new actions and gestures in order to cope with the home button’s timely exit. One of these changes affected the Control Center. Now, whenever you need to access the setting you need to scroll on the right side of the screen downwards.
To us, it doesn’t always end up the way we want it to and, of course, we know it’s the same for you. That’s why we really think Apple should implement a fix for this new awkward Control Center placement and gesture.
