Apple 2018 Software Wishlist (8/28): iOS – Relocating Volume HUD

Ever since iPhone OS 1, the current volume visual indicator, has always been in the middle of the display.

This does get annoying when it comes to watching videos, playing games like Subway Surfers or Asphalt 8 or even while listening to music while on social media or general web browsing.

Getting rid of a volume indicator would be far worse, but Apple should make an effort for iOS and to some degree macOS, to move the volume indicator to the top right of the screen on all devices.

On macOS, it would go just below the clock in the menu bar, but on iOS devices it would take over the status bar on the right, as I’d imagine people would rather see the time when changing volume than the battery level on the right side etc.
