Apple iMessage Might Get an UI Overhaul Soon!
In recent News on October 14th, it has been reported that Apple is developing a new version of the iMessage application, which may be released next year with its MR headset (Mixed Reality).
According to the latest sources, Apple is working on a brand new version of iMessage with a new home view, chat rooms, video clips, and more. The app is said to offer “new chat features in AR“, so that version is expected to launch alongside Apple’s mixed reality headset next year.
We recently learned that Apple iOS 16 introduced a series of new features for the iMessage app, including the ability to edit or delete recently sent messages, mark conversations as unread, and collaborate on invitations and event updates.
Apple iOS 16 also brings SharePlay (simultaneous sharing) to iMessage, enabling multiple users to enjoy synchronized content, such as movies or songs with shared playback controls, while chatting.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman previously said that Apple’s MR headset will focus on gaming, media consumption and communication. He believes that memos and sharing games may be at the heart of the experience.
In addition, two people involved in the development of Apple’s headsets revealed that Apple’s devices are expected to be able to scan the wearer’s iris, so they can quickly log into their accounts simply by wearing the device on their heads.
Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also previously stated that Apple’s MR headset will be equipped with an eye-tracking system, and the eye-tracking system of the headset can support iris recognition. He believes that if the Apple headset can properly implement iris recognition, it is expected to bring a new Apple Pay payment method.
What do you think about this? Is it likely that the UI overhaul will be groundbreaking? Or would it just be some simple case of polish and nip and tuck job?
