iOS is an almost magical operating system. Everything your fingers touch moves as if it were in the physical world, something that competitors have not yet managed to imitate. The animations and functions of iOS vary depending on how and where you play - do not think badly, please.
This feeling of unreal reality will increase in iOS 11, system in which Apple has been lucid with the amount of different gestures we can do on the screen of our device. Here we leave you all the new ways of "touching" that will come with the new version of the operating system.
Five touches, but only three of them are interesting
As it would be too tedious to talk about functions that have been around for years on our iPad, such as the touch function, which is the essential function of these devices, we will only talk about the new touches that will come with iOS 11.
In total there are five, which would be:
Touch-the basic, come on.
Touch long to grab and drag.
Touch long to remove apps.
Touch semi-long to open a "menu" in apps.
Tap hard -or long- on notifications for extra options.
Here the interesting ones are number 2, 4 and 5. The latter is a kind of imitation of the famous 3D Touch that we can find in the latest models of the iPhone. If we do a strong touch in the notifications we can see that we will have access to a greater number of options, something that did not happen with previous versions of the operating system.
Regarding the number 2, is the new function of grab and drag that will come hand in hand with the new version of iOS. A very useful feature that will help us to be more productive, and that brings the mobile operating system to a desktop.
Touch number 4, however, is somewhat strange. If you touch long enough for the system to allow you to drag an app but release it before this happens, a bubble will appear and offer you new options. We still do not know for sure what it is about, but it seems to be a way to see the recent movements that we have made within each application. For example, Pages shows us the last documents added.
Cada vez hay más cosas extrañas dentro del delgado cuerpo de nuestro iPad. Apple quiere convertir iOS 11 en algo más intuitivo y profesional. Tanto ha sido el choque que el mismo Microsoft piensa que los usuarios de Cupertino han creado el iPad para competir contra ellos. ¡Lo que hay que ver.
