According to The Verifier website, Apple will launch iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 in June this year as part of the WWDC 2024 event, The company intends to bring design elements and UI modifications similar to the visionOS operating system.
In recent years, the iOS operating system has made no major changes in user interface design, only adding features such as widgets, lock screen editing and phone screen editing. A few weeks ago, the site learned that Apple was working to bring elements from the visionOS operating system for the Vision Pro glasses to the iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 updates.
For example, Apple introduced a new floating sidebar in the tvOS 17.2 update, replacing the previous sidebar. Apple has set the bar to “translucent,” just like in visionOS. In iPadOS 18, this menu is expected to replace the existing menu.
In addition to innovations in artificial intelligence, iOS 18 is also expected to get a makeover in terms of the user interface, with menus, built-in apps, Safari, and more all being updated with a new design.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is planning a major update to its mobile operating system iOS 18, which is expected to be the “Biggest” software update in iPhone history. According to Apple CEO Cook’s preview, Apple has spent a lot of time and effort to promote its development in the field of artificial intelligence, and will announce specific details later this year.
There are signs that this year’s iOS 18 version is expected to usher in major changes, and Igeekphone will continue to pay attention and bring follow-up reports.
