Here at FutureAppleCEO, we are dedicated to bringing you all the latest Apple News, Rumors, and updates. Today we will combine a big majority of these and talk about what it is we'd love to see happen with Apple in 2016.
Lets start with MacOS. MacOS X has been around for 16 years now and really hasn't had the attention it deserves. Most users are coming out on iOS especially with the power within the iPad Pro. We feel that MacOS (renamed to match iOS, watchOS, etc) should be given quite the overhaul. It needs to adopt many features that iOS has had for years.
To kick it off, we want Siri. This has been available since 2011 on the iPhone 4S, and since 2012 through unofficial ports for Mac OS X, but has yet to see native integration. Simply add this to the MenuBar and you're all set. Of course with this we expect only 2012 or newer macs to support it as it'll require BluetoothLE.
Secondly, ControlCenter. The MenuBar (which we'd replace with an iOS StatusBar look), can often get cluttered. Add control center with could be invoked with a new trackpad gesture, would put all the toggles and settings you access most in a fully customizable ControlCenter on the bottom of the screen, and would keep that MenuBar filled with only the most important info like battery level.
iOS has been deemed the most advanced operating system in the world because of its top of the line security and intuitive nature. It just works. We would like to see some features built upon however. We have covered this in a past article in our iOS 10 Wishlist, however we will cover our biggest request here;
Customizable ControlCenter. This feature, introduced in iOS 7, is great, but might contain features you simply don't use. All we ask, is that in Settings.app, we can interchange stock toggles and QuickLauncers with those of our own that we'd use more. Even so perhaps allow users to download additional system toggles through the iOS App Store using ControlKit.
Thats it for now. Check back later this week as we present TA Talk episode 7 to talk about this further. Let us know what you want to see with Apple Software below in the comments.
