What did iOS12 learn from Android? Aug 21, 2018

Last week, Android's latest version of Android 9.0 has been pushed to the official version, and iOS12 has also released Beta7, infinitely close to the official version. If there is no accident, in September, whether it is Android or iOS, this year's system routine will be completed.

iOS has always been known for innovation, and this operating system, which triggered the revolution of the touch screen, has been changed to 12 generations. When Jobs said that the iPhone is leading the industry for five years, is iOS12 still unmatched by competitors? Maybe not so high. In iOS12, we can see a lot of features that have been familiar to Android on Android, so let's take a look.

◆Notification Center Group Design

If you've used the iOS system, you'll be impressed with its notification center - a notification in the iOS Notification Center that can't be easily cleared with one click like Android, and can't be viewed separately. People who are not familiar with iOS want to To clear all notifications, you can only play strokes. In iOS12, the notification center finally ushered in improvements, notifications can be grouped by APP, and a one-button clear button is added. Want to quickly clear the notifications in iOS, and finally do not need to open the screen and then lock the screen and then open the screen, in order to see the button to clear the button!

However, this design is not iOS original, but first appeared in Android. In Android 7.0, Google has added a single notification for Android to accommodate more information. If an app, such as an email, has pushed multiple notifications, then these notifications will be summarized into an email notification. Expand it to see more how many email notifications you received. Obviously, this design is very convenient, greatly reducing the probability of being notified of the screen, iOS12 learned this mechanism, can significantly improve the user experience.

◆ Improved do not disturb mode

There is always a do not disturb mode on iOS, but it is designed to be rough and simple. When it is turned on, the system will shut down all notifications, ring tones, etc., and you can naturally feel at ease. However, this also brings some other problems. For example, the timing must be set in the setting interface. In the control center, the switch does not disturb the mode. If you are not careful, you can insulate your whole day and society. Now in iOS12, the Do Not Disturb mode has finally ushered in improvements, not only can be quickly and easily closed, but also can be combined with location information, automatically switched according to the geographical location.

The iOS12 Do Not Disturb mode design is very good. For example, when you go to a meeting, you can set the arrival meeting room to do not disturb mode to automatically turn on, and leave and automatically close. The new do not disturb mode of iOS12 is actually similar to the Do not disturb mode of Android. The Android do not disturb mode can easily set the time switch very early, or it can automatically work according to the rule conditions. This set of easy-to-use mode design, iOS12 can be regarded as home. In this way, you can make better use of the Apple Phone Battery.

◆Photo automatic classification

If you often take pictures with your mobile phone, then the finishing of photos will often become a big problem. What do you want to quickly find photos about a person, a place, or a certain topic? Are you slowly turning over? A more advanced approach, of course, is to combine AI image recognition technology to automatically identify photo content and then automatically group the photos into various albums. In iOS12, you can do this.

iOS12 adds the feature of automatic photo categorization. For example, it is very convenient to classify landscape photos taken by mobile phones, animal photos, and portrait photos of specific people into different photo albums. However, this feature is not iOS original, Google Photo pre-installed Google Photo has added similar features in 2015, iOS12 finally caught up with the pace.

◆ Split screen mode on the phone

In iOS 11, Apple first added a split-screen mode for mobile devices, but this mode is only available for iPad. In iOS12, the split screen mode has finally come to more iOS devices. The iPhone can also display two apps at the same time. It is no longer a problem to watch the video while chatting.

This feature is not led by iOS. In Android, the split screen mode has already appeared early. Google provides split-screen mode support for the system in Android 7.0. As long as the app conforms to the specification, it can be presented as a split screen on the screen. And if you count the third-party ROM, then the split-screen mode appears earlier, and some Android ROM even added support for the APP widget mode. However, not all apps on Android are in line with Google's development specifications, so in actual combat iOS12 split screen mode may be more practical than Android.

◆Guest mode

Many iOS users have such an annoyance - if a friend asks to borrow a mobile phone to play, worry about privacy leaks, but not too good to refuse. In iOS12, there is finally a solution. Apple has added a guest mode to iOS12. In the guest mode, you can hide applications that you don't want people to see, and temporarily use mobile phones to give others more peace of mind.

This feature is not led by iOS. As early as the Android 5.0 era, Google has added a guest mode to Android. Android 5.0 and later Android, after the shortcut button panel is pulled down, it is easy to add, delete and switch the guest account, which is very convenient to use, and switching to the guest mode can not access the user's private data. This feature was also implemented when iOS12 joined the guest mode.
