Think Critically, Write Things Down, Repeat

iPhone X Home Plate

November 3, 2017

Apple seems to be going out of its way not to give the horizontal bar at the bottom of the iPhone X user interface a name. For example, in the getting started” pamphlet that ships in the iPhone X box, they don’t give it a name. They just show a picture of it, with an arrow indicating the gesture, and say Swipe up to go home.”
