  • Apple walks back macOS Monterey tab changes, refines search in iOS

    It's good that Apple are giving us options instead of forcing one or the other upon everyone as they usually do because they know best, apparently. Just need the iOS Safari's bottom address bar to be moved back to the top now - or at least stop hiding content under it at the bottom. It's impossible to touch website UI elements that fall under the address bar - basically any site with a footer - without first swiping it out the way. Which randomly does and doesn't work, and then after prodding the website's button the address bar pops back in the way again. Also the way it rockets to the top of the screen when you touch it is jarring, it could go to the top of the keyboard instead. And hiding as much as possible behind the ellipsis is stupid. At least one extra button press for everything just for the sake of minimalism.
    Edit: I see they have done as above, still no fix for it sitting above website UI elements though.

    From my understanding (and watching some WWDC sessions), it is supposed to be up to the website developers to handle this. They've introduced some environment variables that developers can use to detect and account for those changes. More info on this is found in the session called Design for Safari 15: https://developer.apple.com/wwdc21/10029

    Note: I am not stating that putting the responsibility on the developer is the correct way to handle it, but it is the way that Apple is currently going about it.
