Firstly, I wasn't sure whether to post in the iOS 10 or iPhone subforum. Assuming that not all iPhone subforum users know what iOS 10 looks like, I thought this would be a safer bet. Take a look at the new Control Centre. Look at how notifications appear. Look at the new widgets view. What do they have in common? They are all bubble-shaped 'overlays', all a few millimetres away from the screen edge. This contrasts the edge-to-edge design that was a keystone of iOS 7-9, something constantly praised at various Apple events and even on Apple's website IIRC. Why was this the case? Because an edge-to-edge layout is perfect for all current iPhones. They already have a physical bezel which keeps content away from the edge of the phone. Screen real-estate should be used to its maximum potential. Therefore, with that said, it seems rather convenient that iOS 10 features an artificial bezel throughout the OS as I described above. This, to me at least, is to accommodate for an edge-to-edge iPhone display. The benefits of an edge-to-edge (OLED) display are maintained (watching video, games etc.) whilst preventing the annoying aspect of content being covered up by the grip of your hand. In this scenario, the edge-to-edge layout featured in the last three versions of iOS would be unsuitable. The downside to this is that all current iPhones designed for an edge-to-edge OS are going to slightly suffer with the new UI. Any thoughts?
