New Apple Device Ditches ‘Sensory Interface’

(2018-06-10) — Apple’s next groundbreaking device will dispense with the outdated concept of a ‘user interface’ that connects with human senses to convey information, according to an unnamed source familiar with the Cupertino firm’s design process.

Designers have gradually removed visible and tactile features from Apple’s popular iPhones and smartwatches, but the ultimate goal — what experts call ‘interfacelessness’ — has proved elusive…until now.

“People want devices that integrate elegantly and seamlessly with their daily lives,” Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, reportedly told associates in a recent email. “Until now we’ve done nothing but disturb them with visual, auditory, and kinesthetic feedback that interrupts their solitude and requires mental effort to interpret. The era of the palpable, tangible device that requires sensory interplay is coming to an end. Apple will lead the way to the new, senseless future.”
