iOS 11 concept on the iPad.
Apple's Software

We’re widely expecting to get our first glimpse of iOS 11 in just a few weeks at WWDC in early June. And MacStories has just laid out an interesting concept of what the next-generation software should offer.

Instead of any major changes for the iPhone, Federico Viticci and Sam Beckett collaborated on imagining improvements for the iPad:

We haven’t seen something truly new, bold, and transformational happen on the iPad platform in nearly two years. It’s time for Apple to step up their game and continue pursuing the vision for the future of computing set forth in 2015. There’s so much more work to be done with iOS, multitasking, and the redefinition of computing for the multitouch era. The iPad Pro can be a computer for everything, but it needs another leap forward to become the computer for everyone. And that can’t happen without a serious reconsideration of its software.

The iPad needs another bold, daring step towards the future. With iOS 11, Apple has an opportunity to pick up where they left off with iOS 9, forging a new direction for the iPad platform.

Some of the changes imagined in the video include system-wide drag and drop, a content shelf, integrated Spotlight, and more to make the tablet experience better.

Viticci and Beckett did a wonderful job with the video. Hopefully Apple will add some of the features to iOS 11, maybe to even conicide with new iPad hardware. We should know soon.
