iOS 10 Concept Video Integrates 3D Touch into Control Center

If Apple follows its usual upgrade cycle, iOS 10 should be announced at WWDC this summer with a public release in the fall. In anticipation of the release, our forum members have been discussing iOS 10 wishlist features since October. One common request has been a more customizable control center.

Visual designer and animator Sam Beckett has incorporated his views on what a more advanced control center should look like, including the use of 3D Touch and customizable widgets.


Features depicted include:
  • 3D Touch for different options per button
  • Long press to move buttons around
  • Edit button to replace buttons
  • Dark mode
Apple has yet to make any announcements about iOS 10, though does plan to release iOS 9.3 in the Spring. We expect to hear more about iOS 10 in the months leading up to WWDC 2016.

I usually find something wrong on these concepts, but this is excellent.

Absolutely beautiful. But knowing Apple, it won't happen. :(

This is fantastic. Some concepts go too far and forget how Apple thinks and operates. This one follows the rules and fits right in with not only what Apple would do, but what they are most likely going to do.

3D Touch has a lot of potential and I expect that this is the route Apple will take initially as 3D navigation grows in complexity over the next few iterations of iOS.

I would love to have a customizable control center. There are functions I use frequently such as turning my Hotspot on and off that I would like to swap for button in the CC that I never use (like the calculator button).

Agreed -- really nice concept. Apple should hire this guy.

Yes. I definitely want this and just like it appears.

I also want a dark mode, which would work well with that dark-themed Control Center shown in this article. I hate burning my retinas out during the dark by the white. And no, turning down brightness does not help.

iOS X...just sounds wrong.

…because "iPhone 6S Plus" is beautifully named?

Awesome concept as always. Just give us a dark mode and let us change the toggles in CC already, Apple!
