Oddly enough, we are just three months away from the official launch of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14. The first public betas are now available to everyone and their performance is beginning to be polished to give the user a stable and powerful version. However, there are many functions that have been left in the pipeline and that we have not seen in these new updates. One of them the absence of widgets on iPadOS and the new modular home screen. A designer has decided to integrate this reality into a iPadOS 15 concept where we can see the widgets in full action.
App Gallery and Widgets on iPad with iPadOS 15
Parker Ortolani is an American designer who has dedicated this weekend to create a concept of iPadOS 15. It is likely that Apple is already with its design. However, it is unimaginable to think of this operating system when we still do not have iOS and iPadOS 14 officially among us. Regardless of whether or not it is imaginable, let’s analyze the concept, which makes a lot of sense and unleash the customization of our home screen.
iOS 14 brought with it a remodeled home screen in the form of modules, applications and widgets. With App Gallery we were able to customize the apps that were on the home screen, while with the widgets we were able to drag them to customize the screen. We can have a large number of widgets with many functionalities but we have a against pretty big: redesign of the home screen and widgets do not reach iPadOS 14.
In the iPadOS 15 concept we see that in the lower left we can display the App Gallery for two questions. First, if we want to customize the home screen. Second, to open an app in Split Viw. The next step is integrate widgets through a menu that is displayed at the top. It has a search engine and a horizontal scroll to find the element we need.
Modifying the home screen is the same as currently in iOS 14 with a system of modules that allow you to easily add, remove and update widgets, applications and folders. Finally, An addition in this concept of iPadOS 15 and that I really liked: Pro Menu. One more step towards the convergence between iPadOS and macOS. If we press in the upper left, we display the Pro Menu, with which we can access various places and carry out different actions: restart, notification center, Apple ID, etc.
