NIXSOLUTIONS: iOS 18 to Update Standard Apps and Home Screen

As anticipation builds for the release of iOS 18, more details emerge about Apple’s forthcoming mobile operating system. Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman recently shared his insights on what developers might have in store for iOS 18.


Expectations for iOS 18

Gurman’s analysis suggests that alongside new AI-driven functionalities, iOS 18 will see enhancements across various native apps like Photos, Mail, Notes, and Fitness. Notably, the Calculator app is poised to receive significant updates and will debut on iPad with iPadOS 18.

Major Updates on the Horizon

Anticipated to be a significant milestone for iPhone software, iOS 18 may introduce groundbreaking features beyond app updates. Gurman speculates that users might gain the ability to arrange app icons in a non-linear fashion, deviating from the traditional grid layout.

Evolution in Design

While iOS 18 will undergo a comprehensive overhaul, drastic design alterations are unlikely. Gurman predicts that design modifications will focus on enhancing modularity and customization, aiming to make apps more adaptable and easier to update.

The full extent of iOS 18‘s enhancements will be unveiled at Apple’s WWDC conference in June, where the company is expected to showcase its latest developments. Additionally, an event scheduled for May 7 is anticipated to reveal the new iPad Pro and iPad Air. Stay tuned for further updates as we approach the official announcements.
