Android P and iOS 12: What’s Changed with the Gestures?

Even though neither operating systems are available for the public, both Android P and iOS 12 can be checked out, as they are in beta tests now. Of course, if you install one of them on your phone, you’ll encounter your share of bugs, but you might also discover the new features each OS will introduce in the future.

Both Apple and Google have introduced many new features to the operating systems, but now let’s focus on the new sets of gestures from each OS. We’ll check out how Android P gestures compare with the ones on iOS 12.

Android P Gestures

Google removed the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen and replaced it with one pill-shaped button, which acts like a home button if you tap on it. If you tap and hold, you can trigger the Google Assistant.

However, it can be used for many other things. If you swipe up (for a part) from any screen, you enter multitasking more and from the home button, you can access recently used apps, most-used apps, or a search bar. If you hold down on the home button and swipe left, you can scroll between those apps. If you swipe all the way up from the home button, you will be able to access the app drawer.

So many gestures in one single bottom!

These are the new gestures that appeared with the Android P.

iOS 12 Gestures

The gestures in iOS are pretty much the same. Using home screen, you can swipe up from the bottom to access the Control Center. If you swipe right, you can find your widgets, and swiping down will take you to the notification center. Swipe down from the middle of the screen, and you’ll see a search bar with Siri suggestions, reminders and calendar events.

ON the iPhone X, gestures are different, close to the ones that are on Android P. On the iPhone X, if you swipe up from the bottom of the screen, you get into multitasking mode. As for the Control Center, it was moved, and you can find it by swiping down from the top right of the screen. Some of the gestures from the iPhone X were brought on the iPad.

Conclusions: They’re a Little Different

The difference between these two OS’ gestures is that they might seem they’re a bit similar, some of the actions you have to make are actually making them a little different. For example, on Android P you can go to many places directly from the screen with the help of gestures, but there’s a learning curve. As for iOS 12, it’s easier to access different places, but you’ll need to go to the home screen if you want to access some features.
