iPadOS 14: Apple's attempt to pry fondleslab from toddlers' mitts and make it more businesslike


Why not give the choice to people?

I find it annoying when designers decide they know better than you how you should use their product and what for. In general, this happens by removing features which I find useful, and adding others which make no sense to me.

Admittedly, listening to users often results in designing a faster horse rather than a car; and Apple has had some success in designing products that were hugely successful even though nobody had asked for them. But they've been burnt a few times as well.
