For a long time we from Apple have not seen miracles. That's serious, before each presentation caused a storm of emotions and the effect of "Wow!". The last few years, this, alas, does not happen. Tim Cook every year promises to us "new amazing products", but so far we do not see it. The company does a great job of updating the lines of its current products, but nothing really new yet. And now the head of the company once again stated that this year Apple will truly surprise us.
In 2016, the light saw the Touch Bar. If someone slept all last year, it's such a small screen under the MacBook Pro display, where the interface elements of the active application appear. Stuck to date, controversial and not received rave reviews of users. But what if it was only a prelude?
Today the bold concepts of the new iPhone 8 have begun to appear, where there is no place for the physical Home button, and instead the famous Touch Bar. Against the background of recent rumors that Apple is working on a fingerprint sensor directly under the protective glass of the display (in fact, such developments already exist in other companies), in aggregate this opens up a completely new kind of user interaction with the device. Look at one of these concepts:
It is worth a minute to think about this implementation, and in the head there is a lot of ideas for using this approach in the new iPhone. According to most users of the new Mac Book Pro, the main disadvantage of the Touch Bar is the need to reach the top of the keyboard. Here, obviously, this defect will not be. Interactive panel is always at hand and will be adjusted to the user, depending on the running application. Or we can customize it ourselves (here's how Apple decides), but in any case it's something really new and exciting, do not you think?
So far this is unfortunately only rumors, so the discussion of the idea itself, in my opinion, is not as interesting as an attempt to figure out how we can use it if such an opportunity arises. Offer your ideas in the comments. Who knows, maybe we will see their implementation at the end of the year.
And to adjust you to the right way, I suggest the first three ideas that came to the head of our editorial office:
1. Main screen: brightness, sound adjustment, Siri call.
2. Application Numbers: select the color of the text, the ability to select a bold, oblique or underlined text style.
3. Music application: Playback control buttons.
Now it's your turn!
