With iOS 13, Apple is reportedly planning a major revamp for its mobile operating system that powers iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The mobile operating system is said to bring major design changes and might even do away with the scrollable home screen layout altogether. While details regarding changes coming with iOS 13 remains scant at this moment, the company could be preparing for a change that could come as a boon to all iPhone users. The Cupertino-based iPhone maker is expected to ditch the volume heads-up display (HUD) icon with the next release of its mobile operating system.

This is the dialogue box that appears whenever you raise the volume of the ringer on your iPhone. There are a lot of iPhone users who don’t like the way this volume icon appears on their device. Now, a tweet from XDA’s Max Weinback reveals that Apple is dropping the appearance with iOS 13. In a tweet, he claims that the volume HUD will be gone and adds that iOS 13 will be groundbreaking but does not share any specifics of the operating system.

The response for Apple’s volume HUD is mostly mixed but clearly, there are a number of users who don’t like the feature. On Reddit, one iPhone user observed that while regular users like the appearance since it is right in the center of the screen and cannot be missed, there are power users who would rather have a different look for the volume control. One iPhone user called the volume HUD appearance as “big and goofy”.
