    This shouldn't happen in this situation. It's a bug. In videos the volume control on the top right replaces the one in the middle of the screen, so this is not right.

    This shouldn’t happen regardless. Like the box is old as hell and shouldn’t pop up no matter what app you’re in.

    The giant volume / brightness HUD is idiotic on the Mac and downright retarded on iOS.

    They should have fixed it everywhere years ago. Just make it overlay the rightmost side of the status bar / menubar on each platform.

    You have iOS 11 early exactly because you might submit bug reports, that's the whole point of the beta.

    There is a simple reason why Apple is forcing users to use the ears instead of having them permanently black.

    1. if the upper ears are perma black, the apps will look like cards on a display rather than apps themselves and it is something apple does not want.

    2. If Apple gives users options to black it out fully to developer, half the apps will look like cards, half will be using ears. there will be no consistently and Apple design for apps would be holistically inconsistent

Opening a post in Narwhal on iPhone prompts Safari Handoff on iPad

    I have to say, I personally love this feature from narwhal. When you open the handoff app (I use it on my MacBook), it'll open the reddit post you were looking at and makes it really easy to put your reddit post on the big screen, or look at links more optimised for larger screens or keyboards etc. I wish more apps which have website counterparts did this.

    I'd imagine it to be very risky if you got a family iPad showing the shit you're opening on your phone haha

    I believe Beam does the same thing. I used it for a while and it was one of the features I really liked from it.

    And this is why your battery options display Safari using a lot of battery instead of Narwhall.
