Jony Ive graced the cover of this month’s Wallpaper, a well-known magazine that covers design, and gave a lengthy interview that touched on the new Apple Park campus, some of his thoughts on his time at Apple, and of course, the new iPhone X. His words lend an interesting perspective to his latest creation, and shed light on how he views both it and the future of Apple devices.
Today, I want to circle back around to gesture navigation and interface on the iPhone X. While I have already touched on this, it is so critical to living with the device that you can’t help but keep returning.
There are already PLENTY of great how-tos out there regarding the new gesture controls, so I won’t belabor that. If you are looking for a good reference, Joanna Stern’s guide on Twitter and the guide published by Macworld have you sufficiently covered. I am more interested in the day to day experience of adjusting to using them to navigate iOS, and the implications of this significant sift in how we interact with our iPhones, and how some people are really not along for this ride.
