This genius iOS 10 concept needs to be adopted by Apple

Last, week we shared a concept for iOS 10 that offered some far-out ideas for how Apple could improve its mobile software later this year. Now we’re getting a few more realistic suggestions in this awesome concept design from MacStories.

The new iOS 10 concept mostly focuses on improving some of the features Apple recently introduced, like split screen view, Proactive and the Control Center, which is already a few years old. It also includes a few clever new ideas, including a dark mode, granular controls for Read Receipts and more.

The redesigned Control Center imagined by MacStories is totally finally open to customization. You can move buttons around and even add third-party apps for easy access. It also adds 3D Touch controls, bringing even more command options in the menu.

Split screen on the iPad also gets a big upgrade in this iOS 10 concept. It includes the option to drag text and images between apps when they’re placed side-by-side. You can also grab an incoming notification and drag it down to launch split screen mode.

In Proactive, iOS 10 could add Apple Music suggestions to the apps and news stories it recommends when you swipe all the right to the left. Siri gets some improvements as well, with third-party app integration and support for contextual conversations.

For messaging, MacStories adds rich previews so if you text someone a link it will display extra information like on Facebook or Twitter. The concept also adds a special emoji button in Apple’s keyboard, making it easy to add an emoji to your message and even search for a specific one with words.

One genius idea that may be a little too ambitious is a new Document Picker app. It’s basically the Finder from OS X, complete with tags for organizing your files and 3D Touch support.

MacStories put a ton of work into this iOS 10 concept, and we wouldn’t be surprised if a few of these ideas show up in Apple’s actual upgrade later this year. Check out the video below and hit the source link for even more details.
