Folks over at iHelpBR have put together a few rumors and their wish-list and come up with a great iOS 10 concept. The core feature boasted by this concept is the Dark Mode for iOS, which is also being hinted at within Apple’s latest update for the official WWDC app made available in the app store not too long ago.
The concept imagines a Dark Mode activated across the system and applied to just about anything within iOS. The iOS 10 concept shows How Apple’s stock apps such as Messages, Contacts, Mail, News, and others look like when the Dark Mode is enabled. The designer also imagines Apple extending the Dark Mode support for third-party apps as well by creating a Dark Mode API.
The concept introduces further enhancements to the Dark Mode by imagining automatic activation of the Dark Mode based on sunset. It is something that Apple has already introduced in the stock Apple Maps application.
The concept also imagines an interesting feature for the iPhone lineup. The designer shows the inclusion of split-screen multitasking and support for picture-in-picture on iPhone running iOS 10. Please note that both of these features are already part of the iOS, but available on the iPad devices. Some of Apple’s competitors already have introduced similar functionalities on smaller screen devices as well, so it’s quite possible that Apple may port its iPad-only features to iPhone as well.
The demand of a Dark Mode on iOS has been on a rise for quite some time now, especially after Apple introduced the dark theme in its OS X back in 2014 with the release of OS X Yosemite.
Apple’s is widely expected to unveil its next major iOS iteration during WWDC 2016. It’ll be interesting to see if the fruit company really pushed the dark theme feature for theiOS devices alongside the Macs. This year’s WWDC is going to be held between June 13 and June 17.
