They call it “The Shelf”.

Apple hasn’t exactly given the iPad first priority when it
comes to iOS updates, but that could change next month at WWDC
where the company is expected to unveil iOS 11.
Most of the
concepts we’ve seen have been
all about the iPhone, but iPad power-user Federico Viticci
and Sam Beckett created a beautiful concept that shows some big
and simple changes that would transform the iPad from a fun
tablet into a pro machine. Features like Finder, Drag and Drop
between apps, multi-channel audio and more are on display in
the fantastic mockup.
Apple, if you’re reading this, please steal these features:
The opening keynote for WWDC is just
over two weeks away, so if Apple hasn’t already started working
on features like the Shelf, there’s zero chance we’ll get it
this year. Rumors about features coming in iOS 11 have been
pretty slim, so we’re still not sure what to expect at this
software that will likely be introduced at
WWDC 2017 includes macOS 10.13, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4. This
year’ event could also include new
MacBooks and MacBook Pros, though the new machines are only
expected to feature internal upgrades.
