The Volume Overlay in iOS can be intrusive, especially on iPhones where screen real estate is limited! It has remained largely unchanged through many iterations of iOS and it feels outdated. Alert style notifications in iOS 10 have been moved to the top of the screen to be less intrusive which is a great step forward, but the volume overlay has remained unchanged! Even on the iPad it can be very annoying getting in the way of video playback among other areas in apps where content is beneath the overlay... This problem was remedied in the Jailbreak world many years ago via a tweak named StatusHUD, pictured bellow, however as mentioned above there's still no innovation in this area under stock iOS! Isn't it long overdue improvement? What's your opinion, does the Volume HUD irritate you or are you fine with how it currently is and has been for years? Vote above and comment bellow.
