Amazing iOS 10 concept adds iPhone split-screen, dark mode

by Todd Haselton | June 7, 2016

Apple is expected to debut iOS 10, its latest mobile operating system for iPhones and iPads, during WWDC 2016 next week. Unlike in previous years, we don’t have much information on what sorts of features Apple plans to add to iOS 10. To fill that gap, one artist recently created an iOS 10 concept that has some features that aren’t totally outlandish.

The concept, by iHelpBR, features a dark mode in iOS, adding black and dark gray hues throughout the operating system, which currently has an abundance of bright colors. You can see how particularly pleasing this is to the eyes in places like iMessage and e-mail. Additionally, the concept imagines split-screen multitasking in iOS 10, a feature that’s already available on Apple’s iPads. An iPhone screen may be a bit too small for this sort of feature, but we do dig the idea of the pop-out picture-in-picture window making its way to iPhones. Samsung and LG have been doing this on Android for years.

Apple probably won’t introduce a dark mode or split-screen multitasking for the iPhone in iOS 10, but we can dream. We’ll know much more about what iOS 10 includes after the WWDC 2016 keynote on Monday.
