Tipster says that iOS 13 will remove a feature that annoys many iPhone users
by Alan Friedman / Feb 19, 2019, 7:16 PM
According to a tweet from XDA's Max Weinbach, there is possibly good news coming for those who can't stand the volume heads-up display (HUD) on the Apple iPhone. This is the box that contains an image of a bell, for example, when you raise the volume of the ringer on the device. There are many out there who don't like the way the volume HUD looks on the iPhone, preferring a more subtle volume reading. The tweet from Weinbach says that he has been told that in iOS 13, the volume HUD is gone. He adds that iOS 13 will supposedly be groundbreaking, but doesn't go into details.
On Reddit, one iPhone user notes that while regular users like the HUD because it is right in the center of the screen and can't be missed, power users would rather a different way to show the volume level. Another iPhone user calls the volume HUD "big, and goofy."So why do some iOS users hate the volume HUD?
We expect to see iOS 13 introduced during Apple's WWDC Developers Conference. While Apple hasn't officially announced a date, there is speculation that the event will take place from June 3rd through June 7th, 2019.

I had no idea that there was such an opinion about this. If it changes or not, I don't mind. One thing that I wish could change is the need for everything to be interrupted because of a phone call. While that is the main function of a phone, Android does this better with showing it as a banner when you are using the phone.

Can you have your voice call on speaker and continue to use your phone to surf the internet/use other apps etc at the same time? I hear so many on here talking about iPhones not having multitasking abilities - just curious if that's true even if you're on a phone call.

Yep, but unfortunately, if it's not a call you want to answer (like a spam call or bill collector), you can't. You either decline (which warrants an immediate call back sometimes) or wait for it to end. It's really annoying.

Please get rid of that crap, and just have a small slider. C'mon Apple, there's too many elements of iOS that need to be updated. MiOSGA

For real. Siri's animation still takes up the whole screen too which pisses me off.

Does this change require a full article to be posted?

How about they bring on the feature of the small pop up window when you’re watching a video, texting, emailing or just doing something. I hate getting a call and it takes over the whole screen. That feature has been on LG, Samsung, and others since 2010. Lame fruit.

Gotta love Apple. Removing something annoying is actually considered a new highlight feature. Please oh please Pixel 4, be impressive so I can get rid of my iPhone X.

Can we add "Location Services" to the Control Center? I don't keep my location on 24/7 and I only turn it on when I need to and it's annoying as f**k to have to always go all the way to the settings just to turn it on and off.
