iOS 10 Concept Imagines Customizable Control Center, Siri API, Dark Mode and More

Federico Vittici of MacStories has teamed up with Sam Beckett to create an iOS 10 concept video covering "wishlist" features Vittici hopes to see in the next version of iOS. Most concept videos we see are fanciful and filled with features unlikely to make it into iOS, but Vittici's vision of the future of iOS is logical and well thought out.

Major features covered in the video include a customizable Control Center with icons that can be rearranged and third-party app integration, a Siri API for third-party apps, and a system-wide dark mode.


Smaller tweaks include searchable emoji and rich previews in Messages, a document picker for iCloud Drive, and features to make Split View multitasking more useful on the iPad.

iOS 10 isn't expected to be released until the fall of 2016 alongside new iPhones, but we'll get our first look at it in just two months when Apple debuts the operating system update at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. Little detail has leaked out so far, but we may learn more as we grow closer to its official announcement.

Our forum members are also discussing features they would like to see in iOS 10, with a long wishlist thread highlighting desired additions like a revamped UI for iPads, user profiles, lock screen widgets, and more. Join in on the discussion here.

This looks amazing. I would be ecstatic with even half of this, especially dark mode.

Very elegant and pretty good ideas. I always say this, but bring the dark mode already! All that white is blinding.

Apple would never do anything like this anymore - it will just be a normal boring update...

That was pretty nice. Nothing over the top. Very clean and some darn good ideas. That dark mode is beast.

These are all good ideas but it's a shame though 3D touch wasn't incorporated into iPhone SE.
