Windows and macOS continue to be considered fierce rivals within the OS market, and both Microsoft and Apple are truly dedicated to developing new features that would eventually set many aside from competition.
Windows 10 itself has evolved a great deal within the last few years, and Microsoft is pushing difficult to make it a practical system for everyone and everything. For this reason Windows 10 can now operate on a multitude of devices, while also offering an abundant feature lineup which includes productivity, gaming, and touch-optimized capabilities.
Even though some such as the new direction that Microsoft has embraced because of its operating system, others want the company to follow in Apple’s footsteps and make Windows more like macOS.
macOS-inspired Windows 10
A concept developed by Kamer Kaan Avdan goes one step further and imagines a Windows 10 version produced by Apple, envisioning a mix of features which are already available for Microsoft users but with improvements coming from macOS.
The Start menu, for example, which I think looks a little bit cluttered, features what seems to be a better live tile concept that depends on an Apple-inspired design, with rounded corners that remind of macOS and iOS icons. Furthermore, the idea details a greatly-improved File Explorer in addition to iMessage for Windows, which may essentially bring Apple’s messaging platform beyond its walled garden.
The redesigned Action Center is the part which i like the most, and despite being obviously inspired from Apple’s control center, some of the improvements highlighted in the concept would actually seem sensible in Windows 10. Including the brightness slider, that is, as Microsoft for some reason sticks with pre-defined brightness levels in its OS.
A dark theme, improved search, and iPhone integration are the other features envisioned in the concept. And of course, while some of those ideas could at some point make their method to Windows 10 in a single form on another, don’t expect Windows 10 to find yourself getting so near to macOS.
