Lo­ca­tion aware­ness

When you’re work­ing, you don’t re­ally need mul­ti­ple de­vices scream­ing at you

Mac Format - - BACK ISSUES -

We love Con­ti­nu­ity and the man­ner in which Ap­ple is thought­fully in­creas­ing in­te­gra­tion be­tween de­vices, but we wish the sys­tem would be a bit more in­tel­li­gent. If you’re busy work­ing on your Mac and a mes­sage comes in, you might wel­come a no­ti­fi­ca­tion on your screen. Chances are you won’t be thrilled by all of your nearby iPads and iPhones blar­ing out the same no­ti­fi­ca­tion over the next few sec­onds. We’d like de­vices to be more aware of their prox­im­ity to each other, in­tel­li­gently feed­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tions and ac­tion­able alerts to the de­vice you’re work­ing with, not all of them. (Again, this could be op­tional should you thrive on ca­coph­ony.)

If all your de­vices are in one place, there’s no need for all of them to fire no­ti­fi­ca­tions at your eyes and ears.
