It's about this time of year that we see the beta of the next point release in iOS and with it usually comes a few neat new features that I'm hoping are a bit more geared towards the iPad this time.
Here are some of my thoughts on what we might see in iOS 10.3
- Improved split screen on iPad: At the moment side by side apps work well but there are no facilities available to drag and drop between them, I'd like to see this brought in the next release although it is probably more like a iOS 11 feature
- iPad app switching: It's a bit of a nightmare switching apps when in split screen mode at the moment, when you want to switch all you get is a drop down view of all apps that support it. This feels like the first steps to making something more fully featured. I'm not sure of the best UI that could suit this but maybe a good approach would be to go back to the home screen
- Dark mode: Not sure we will ever get one to be honest but some sort of dark keyboard mode in iOS would be nice, seems a relatively simple change and one that could come in iOS 10.3
- Customisable control centre: Making control centre your own is the next logical step in it's evolution, I'd like this sooner rather than later so iOS 10.3 makes sense
That's it as far as I would see, even then it's a stretch to image all of these coming in a point release - I can but hope.
What would you like to see in iOS 10.3?
