We’ve featured a lot of the visual mock-up work designer Sam Beckett has produced over the years – and now the creative is teaming up with our friends over at MacStories, to share a brand new concept for iOS 11 …
Expected to make its debut at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, where the company is anticipated to publicly show-off just some of what lies ahead for users of the major software upgrade, the concept video particularly envisions the ultimate successor to Forstall’s original implementation of copy and paste on the platform: Drag & Drop.
“On the surface, native drag & drop between iPad apps would feel immediately intuitive,” Viticci explains.
“Users could select any piece of content – an image, some text, a link, or a document – and long-press with one finger until the content lifts up and can be dragged away,” he adds, arguing that -in order for it to work- Apple’s implementation of drag and drop on iOS would “[need] to be easier, faster, and safer than any desktop alternative.”
There’s a whole bunch of other stuff introduced in Beckett’s latest software concept, including: Shelf – which is described as “sit[ting] above apps (both in full-screen mode or Split View)” and “revealed automatically when the user is dragging an item towards the top of the screen,” alongside a new ‘Split View’ App Picker.
