App switching is on iPhone X is sublime

“Apple has made a bunch of user interface improvements to accommodate iPhone X,” Killian Bell writes for Cult of Mac. “One of them is a new app switching gesture that looks glorious on the handset’s edge-to-edge OLED display.”

“We still don’t know exactly how iOS 11 will work on iPhone X’s new Super Retina HD display, or how it will handle the ‘notch,'” Bell writes. “But there’s plenty left to discover. In the brief clip below, we get our first look at iPhone X’s new app switching gesture.”

“It works by simply swiping from one corner of the display to the other,” Bell writes. “It’s simple and intuitive, and thanks to a swanky animation, it looks glorious.”

MacDailyNews Take: Very simple and very nice!

Can’t wait (although we might have to)!


    1. No, they don’t. MDN provides spots on their site for 3rd party adservers to fill. Web owners get some sort of small cut for each impression, and that’s why you see as many ad positions as the webmaster can carve out. It’s also why see so many continued stories; so the website can load another page and serve up a new batch of ads. But the site doesn’t know what ads are being served, and the ads you get are different from the ads I get. All the datamining on each of us influences who’s advertising will be displayed to us.

    2. Not sure what link you guys clicked, the two links direct to Cult of Mac or Imgur. How much money have you sent to MDN for the free platform news source they provide to you? MDN please add a subscription to eliminate ads and limit commenting, I’ll pay $3-5 per month.

      1. Who are these “guys” you are chastising. Please note that my response the KingMel was to explain how web advertising operates. I was not placing judgement as I place a lot of ads myself. It’s hard to monetize a website, and I don’t begrudge MDN for doing so via ads.

        1. The ads that I see aren’t very good ones. In the block of six “you may like” ads, four are about silly money making schemes, one about stubborn belly fat, and one about stars who look like game characters.
          Certainly nothing I’d click on except by accident.

        2. I’m not sure why my reply went to your comment, the two preceding comments to my reply were to commenters complaining about links redirecting them to other sites, which I did not experience with the links MDN included in the post.

  1. I agree with KingMel. Immediately after opening this page from the MDN homepage, my browser was redirected to (on a page for some item that I’ll never buy). Ridiculous.

  2. You guys are going into a touchy subject here at MDN. Which of course could get your IP banned. MDN does that often when your talk about their advertising. Mentioning on how to get around the ads will get you an immediate ip banning.

    Be careful on your comments.

  3. Yeah, for the last week, every other article I read on my iPhone, my screen is taken over by some spam saying I won something on Amazon and I need to enter some info. I just close the page and re-open.

  4. Not noted in the wake of pixel 2 xl’s navigation button burn in fiasco is that Apple has done away with navigation buttons completely with these new gestures. Elegant way to solve the burn in problem on OLED.
