Apple has an iPad gesture dilemma 74 Using an iPhone X and iPad Pro is getting confusing By Tom Warren@tomwarren Apr 5, 2018, 9:15am EDT SHARE At its launch back in 2010, the iPad was heavily criticized for being a big iPhone. iOS 11 and the iPad Pro proved that wasnt the case. Things further diverged with the introduction of the iPhone X, which has led to some confusion for anyone who regularly uses an iPad. Ive been using an iPhone X and iPad Pro together for nearly six months now, and I often feel lost when moving back and forth between the devices one with a physical home button, the other with webOS-like gestures. The result is a vastly different user experience, even though they run the same version of iOS on large rectangles of glass. Now, Apple is rumored to be ditching the home button on the iPad Pro in favor of Face ID. Its a move that makes sense, and it will present Apple with an opportunity to more closely align its tablet with the iPhone X gestures or to further differentiate the iPad as an entirely different computing platform (one thats wholly separate from the iPhone, in the same way that the iPhone is distinct from the Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch). Either way, Apple is facing an iPad gesture dilemma. Lets look at the home gesture, for example. For the longest time, pressing the home button on an iPad or iPhone was the fail-safe way to take you back to Apples grid of iOS apps. That changed with the all-screen iPhone X. A swipe up from the bottom is the new home gesture (which also unlocks the device) on Apples flagship phone, but that same gesture brings up the dock on the iPad. If, like me, you switch between the two devices fairly regularly throughout the day, then it takes a few minutes to adjust your muscle memory each time you switch. Instead of hitting the home button, I constantly swipe up on the iPad thinking Ill go home; instead, Im greeted by a docked row of apps. Here are the same swipe-up gestures side by side: (News By BBC NEWS)
