Thanks to the image found in the HomePod code last week, we expect that the all discussed design of the new iPhone, which will be released by Apple this fall, will have a recess for the speaker and proximity sensor. If the almost frameless design is still implemented, there are several options for how the top part of the menu that surrounds these elements can be changed. Designer Max Rudberg suggested three possible versions of the appearance of the new generation iPhone and iOS 11.
Rudberg expects that Apple can pick out the top notch visually or connect it to the Status Bar, which turned out to be the most popular option based on a survey conducted among 9to5Mac readers. If Apple tries to connect it to the screen panel, Rudberg believes that Apple can implement the dynamic panel below to create a single design.
Each concept in the Status Bar removed the current time, and some controls moved to the bottom of the screen. If Apple does this, then using a phone with a new 5.8-inch display with one hand will be much more convenient.
The idea of Apple to combine the Status Bar with the top notch around the speaker that is present on most concepts is quite original, but that does not mean that creating a "false" rim at the bottom around the Home button is a good idea. It looks too similar to the iPhone that is being released now. Read the Rudberg concept and share your impressions in the comments.
