macOS 11 Concept Imagines Desktop OS From a Whole New Perspective



A new macOS 11 concept published recently by designer ?Alvaro Pabesio has completely reimagined and overhauled Apple’s desktop OS, changing almost everything in one way or another. The menu bar has been completely redesigned, featuring a Control Centre like iOS, as well as a new universal dark mode, universal apps and tons more.

The concept macOS 11 introduces a simplified status bar, with a full iOS-like Control Center that offers toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and more. The concept also imagines how macOS would support iPad applications, based on a recent Bloomberg report that Apple may unify iOS and macOS Apps in 2018.

“Universal apps run on your desktop like they were made to do so. They are not a worse, scaled down version of the app, but a more powerful and versatile one. Content will automatically scale and adapt to your screen and resolution, and options like File, Edit, or View work just like any other desktop app.”

Check out some screens from the concept below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

    Cool concept, but fix the bugs in High Sierra before you try to reinvent the wheel. Or skip the yearly macOS updates and spend an extra year ironing out the bugs in OS 11 before you force it on your user base.
