Get ready for the relocated end call button in iOS 17

Get ready for the relocated end call button in iOS 17

It looks like Apple is ready to move one of the most used buttons in iOS; Red end call button for the phone app. The beta versions of iOS 17, which will likely get an official release this fall alongside the upcoming iPhone 15, feature a redesigned call interface that moves the red button down and to the right, removing the space between it and the rest of the call controls. .

The new interface has been technically provided with First developer beta for iOS 17but it wasn’t widely spotted until this week when the likes of it came to light CNBC And gizmodo Change covered. Here is a before and after comparison of the contact interface between iOS 16 and beta iOS 17:

To me, it looks like Apple made the change to account for iOS 17’s new Contact Poster feature, which replaces much of the phone call interface with an image that represents the person you’re talking to (as you can see in the image above). Instead of covering this image with buttons and icons, Apple appears to have shifted the call controls down to allow the sticker itself to be center stage.

Personally, I think the change makes sense, but others claim this could undo years of building muscle and cause people to activate FaceTime when they really want to hang up. But there’s always the possibility that the design could be tweaked before iOS 17 exits beta later this year, like how Apple handled the redesigned URL bar in Safari in iOS 15 before finally giving users an easy way to replace it back. If they don’t. Like his new location.
