Can we do it like this? prototype gif animation iphone apple design thinking design ui ux ios 10

I love iOS 10. I think it's a step in a better direction for mobile interactions. One thing I can't get over, though, is the new control center. I don't think it needed a redesign and that it was fine how it was. Now I realize that there is data that went behind these design decisions that I don't understand, but based on what I see I have doubts that it was worthy of splitting the control center into two panels at the expense of lower accessibility and more confusion.

But, they did. And to top it off they made it so that you can't continuously swipe those panels. If you're on the left-most panel you can't swipe left. The same goes for if you're on the right-most panel. I find that more often than not, this inability to quickly swipe in whichever direction I please to get to the panel I want is just frustrating. It requires me to take an extra second to orient myself in the new layout and figure out which direction to swipe – and when you do that multiple times per day it gets old quick.

I propose they unlock the scrolling and make it infinite. This would save users a little bit of time, and a lot of headache 🙂
